Describing Independent Venue Week is best done via their own words - "a seven day celebration of small music venues around the UK and a nod to the people that own, run and work in them, week in, week out".
Every Independent venue has its own story to tell. They are the heart and soul of the music scene and more often than not broke the bands that matter to so many. Without these hot spots and the people who work tirelessly to run them, musical culture would be practically nothing. Here we shine a spotlight on what they have to bring in the upcoming months.
