Bristol Music Playlist

Bristol has inspired decades of musicians, artists and bands and has an incredibly rich and wonderfully diverse music scene.

Some of out most famous musical exports include; Massive Attack, George Ezra, Portishead, Laid Blak and Roni Size. However, what sets Bristol's music culture above and beyond is our wealth of underground and emerging talent. Bristol has iconic past and present music venues too and has been instrumental in a plethora of different music scenes including reggae, jazz, grime and dubstep.

The Bristol Music playlist

We have used Spotify to put together a playlist for you. Listen at home or download them and listen while you’re here. This will be your perfect Bristol soundtrack. You might discover something new or listen to some old favourites again.

Listen to the Bristol Playlist

If you think there's a Bristol artist that we've missed that should be on the list, please get in touch with us and we'll add them on. Let us know you're listening on our social media channels, using #VisitBristol. We hope you enjoy it!

Immerse yourself in the music

Of course, Bristol Music is more than a playlist (but it's a good place to start!) and to really get the feel for it, then you'll need to go to some festivals, concerts, gigs and club nights. Our well-stocked what's on pages can help you find the right gig for you, or for even more listings head to Headfirst Bristol.

This summer M Shed are exploring the incredible music culture of Bristol in their exhibition, Bristol Music: Seven decades of sound and is a must for any music lovers.
