Music in Liverpool

1. British Music Experience

Rock, pop, punk and rave your way through 70 years of Britain’s popular music history at the British Music Experience when it opens in Liverpool in February 2017! It will be a mix of images, video and music memorabilia ranging from John Lennon’s iconic glasses to the Spice Girls’ Geri Halliwell’s Union Jack dress.


2. Echo Arena

Situated on the banks of the River Mersey, this arena and its smaller sister venue EchoTwo are key music venues based in Liverpool's former docks. The Echo hosts major rock and pop bands, classical music, musicals and lots more.


3. Royal Liverpool Philharmonic

An art-deco, Grade II-listed building, the Philharmonic offers a year-round programme that features everything from pop to comedy. Predominantly though, this is a classical venue, specialising in performances from its own orchestra, the longest surviving in Britain.


4. Kazimier

Kazimier is an edgy, arty venue that hosts a great variety of major acts, from underground electro to reggae, indie, rock and modern classical. It’s also an intriguing space, with a great heated garden.


5. Cavern Club

Cavern Club Liverpool

Step into the birthplace of Britain’s most iconic band, The Beatles, and explore the Cavern Club - the cradle of British pop music. Enjoy performances from a band recreating the look and sound of The Beatles through the week as well as a range of other live bands.


6. Leaf Tea Shop and Bar

This is one of Liverpool’s coolest music venues. A "punk" tea room that morphs from being a place to breakfast on organic porridge, into a fully-licensed bar and gig venue at night.
