Live Music secondary The Botanist Newcastle edited 1 Live music at The Botanist, Newcastle

NX provides a top-class performance space for live music in Newcastle, and with a good mix of established, break-through and up-and-coming bands gracing the stage, it's a great place for concerts and to dance the night away in Newcastle.

If you want to find the best North East and grass-roots music, then head to some of Newcastle's smaller venues such as The Cluny and The Cumberland Arms in Ouseburn. Here you'll find intimate gigs with local artists playing anything from folk music to punk rock.

If it’s live music to accompany your night out in Newcastle then head to bars like The Botanist in the city centre or Head of Steam and Holy Hobo in Jesmond where musicians regularly perform while you sip your cocktail.

Nothing could be better than live music under the stars so you’re in luck with a visit to the North East as venues like Durham Cricket Club, The Alnwick Castle and Newcastle Racecourse often provide the backdrop to open air concerts in the summer months.
