Creating a Live Music Hub for Sydney

29 Sep

It has come to my attention through a discussion with fellow live music scene campaigners Nightfusion that based on the statistics I mentioned in an earlier post, Sydney doesn’t yet have a large enough hub for live music. It could be possible to focus on popular areas for live music as a starting point in forming this major hub. So, with this in mind, I set out to find what Sydney’s top ten live music venues currently are. However, the most recent list I found came from a post by Trish Roberts of Concrete Playground, written in 2011, which named their top ten live music venues that year as:

  1. The Enmore (Enmore)
  2. The Red Rattler (Marrickville)
  3. The Annandale Hotel (Annandale)
  4. Goodgod (Sydney)
  5. 505 (Surry Hills)
  6. The Vanguard (Newtown)
  7. The Factory Theatre (Marrickville)
  8. The Lansdowne (Sydney)
  9. Black Wire Records (Annandale)
  10. Oxford Art Factory (Darlinghurst)

What do you guys think? Do you agree with this or are there other venues that you believe were perhaps more popular last year? What venues would you suggest have made the top ten this year?
