5 Great Live Music Venues Sydney

Before leaving for my recent travels around Australia and New Zealand I researched every aspect of my journey and the activities that I would be doing. One thing which I neglected, much to my annoyance, was the live music venues in the cities I would be visiting. Live music is one of my favourite pastimes and I was infuriated that I hadn’t thought to research the best venues to attend, especially as I did not always have easy access to the Internet whilst travelling. As a result, I ended up touring around many bars and venues in a number of cities in an often blind attempt to locate good quality live music. Below are some of the better live music venues which I found in Sydney:

The Gaelic
A wonderful venue found in a central location just around the corner from Central Station. The venue holds up to 550 people, meaning that it has enough people to give each event a good atmosphere whilst maintaining the intimate environment for which it is renowned. I loved the variety of music available at this venue as well as the varied crowds which the nearby train station brings.

Oxford Art Factory
I had many a great night at this venue. It never failed to amaze me, not only by the wide range of music which was on display here, but also for the outrageous crowds which were attracted to the shows. The layout is perfect as it has a few bars to choose from and escape from the music for a while on the few nights when the music didn’t really catch my fancy.

The Metro
This is one of the best live music venues that I have ever been to. This venue has everything, meaning that whilst many of the acts were unknown and amateur, the shows had an air of professionalism about them. The lighting and sound were great and you can even stand at the bar and still see what is happening on stage. Every city should have a venue like this.
