Robert Elms - BBC Radio London

The #SaveLondonMusic Campaign, in association with the Robert Elms show on BBC Radio London are embarking on a mission to identify all of the current music venues in London. Once we have identified them, we are aiming to stage a gig at each one, before the end of 2016. We launched the project on Roberts show today.

We got a fantastic response on Roberts Facebook Page. We’ve agreed to set up a central list of venues here. This list is divided into two sections. The first is the list that was identified by the London Mayors Music Venues Task Force, you can Checkout the Interactive map here. We’ve only listed the Grassroutes venues listed.  It is also worth having a look at the London Music Venue Trust website.
We’ll issue regular updates of all #SaveLondonMusic gigs as we aim to get a gig at every single one by the end of 2016.  Check our events for the upcoming events.
Massive thanks to Robert and all at BBC Radio London for their help.
Please follow the #SaveLondonMusic facebook page for more details on the campaign events.
