Whether you’re interested in up-and-coming artists or established stars, Edmonton has an impressive number of live music venues to catch them. Here are just a few!

Rogers Place

The Starlite Room

Double Dragon

Double Dragon is Edmonton's hottest new music venue, featuring a diverse lineup of DJs and musical talents! Brought to life by the creative minds at Fu's Repair Shop, this dynamic venue can be found in the back entrance of the restaurant. Experience a diverse lineup of local DJs and musical talents, from electronic beats to hip hop, to K-Pop. Feel the beat!

The Buckingham

Winspear Centre

Union Hall

Situated almost equally between and behind a fabric store and a tattoo parlour, Union Hall presents a dizzying array of sounds, with metal, EDM, hip-hop, punk, and pop bands passing through their doors. Modest Mouse and Yukon Blonde, Earl Sweatshirt and the Darkness have all graced the stage at Union Hall, as well as celebrated English post-punks Echo & the Bunnymen. Stake out a spot early on, as the dance floor in front tends to fill up early.

Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium

The Common

Midway Music Hall

In one section of Midway Music Hall, you'll find craft cocktails, food, beer, and wine. In the other section, you'll discover a live music space that's as uncomplicated and straightforward as a hall can get. As many as 1,300 people can fit in the room, and if you’ve ever been there to watch shows like The Tea Party or Method Man and Redman then you’ve seen exactly what that looks like. A trip back to the bar from the front of the stage requires balance and stamina to get through the press of a sold-out show.

Yardbird Suite
