Sydney Gig Guide

Here is the gig guide, how does it work? Simply scroll through the alphabetical order of venues, find ones with that host genres you enjoy, and click on the venue name to be taken to where they list their gigs.

The list is coloured by how well they run their venues live music.
Purple = Constantly up to date
Green = Updates Monthly, venues that update month (sometimes leading to a week or two of no gig listings)
Orange = Updates Weekly/Week Of
Red = Terrible at any kind of promotion

The genres are simple and more to give an idea. If a venue has a genre that will include all the subgenres e.g Jazz also includes Alternative/Indie/Contemporary/Experimental etc. And when there is a listing like Punk Rock and Metal it can be obvious that they will host Hardcore music as well. There are more venues than anyone may realise, discover them all below!

Don’t know a local NSW band that is listed for a gig? Head to the NSW Band Page to search the excel spreadsheet and check out their page, or you can just look for your favourite genres and discover new local music.

  1. A good resource for researching venues.
    Gig guides normally give the venue and the performer and the date(s). Lots of venues list performers in a gig guide rather than on a website/Facebook page.
    Any plans to list where and when performers are on? πŸ™‚

    • That is what the gig guide used to be. Giving the performers and dates on a weekly basis with great detail. This proved to be unsustainable as it became a full time job with no pay and no support from those who could financially help it.

      I maintain the gig guide name since every venue on there links directly to where the venue links their gigs. Essentially I am linking to the direct source of gig guides; the venue itself.

  2. Hi! yes, way too much work for one person to do. To do what I am referring to is best done where performers and/or venues login and up date their gigs themselves – a big setup initially.
    Thank you for what you are doing here! πŸ™‚

  3. My partner and I stumbled over here by a different
    website and thought I may as well check things out.
    I like what I see so now i am following you. Look forward to looking at your
    web page repeatedly.

  4. Plug all of the gear into a power strip and then “turn on” the aquarium.
    The legs are muscular and are covered with strong scales.
