Latest update from Boomtown Fair
An estimated 35% of small music venues have closed down in the UK in the last decade due to new developments being built near by.
Grassroots music venues play a vital role in nurturing local talent and the exposure bands get through smaller venues and festivals is central to the musical diversity our country has become known for across the world.
With the news that Thekla Bristol could be the next victim, a venue that has provided a platform for a huge number of artists we see on the Boomtown bill over the years, please check out Music Venue Trust and Savenightlife for more information to help preserve the musical heritage we should all be so proud to be part of.
