In conjunction with local music site, Edinburgh Music Lovers, we are delighted to launch The Edinburgh Music Map – a guide to a selection of Edinburgh’s much loved music venues, bars, places of interest and record shops.
Featuring around 50 music destinations across the capital, the map lists around 20 music venues such as Sneaky Pete’s, a recent winner of the UK’s Grassroots Music Venue of the Year; former Veterinary School, Summerhall; 5-star flagship venue The Usher Hall; and the recently rebranded O2 Academy Edinburgh.
Also included are Edinburgh’s numerous record shops such as newcomer Thorne Records in Bruntsfield and stalwart shops such as Underground Solu'shn, Avalanche and Assai Records. A selection of music bars across Edinburgh that host traditional live music sessions, such as Whistle Binkies, Bannermans and Sandy Bell’s, are also featured.
Not only that, but the map features a link to a specially curated all-Edinburgh playlist featuring music by a new wave of exciting Edinburgh bands and artists including swim school, Hamish Hawk and Callum Easter, as well as established names such as Young Fathers and The Proclaimers.
