We believe that the following venues should be recognised for their magnificent efforts to support the music scene. They continuously provide opportunity for musicians to perform and allow music fans to experience some of the best bands around. We will be adding venues as we go, so if you think a venue deserves to feature then let us know in the comments section below.
The Lighthouse, Deal
The Lighthouse is an independent live music venue run by a family team of musicians, artists, designers, sound engineers and expert bar people. The Lighthouse has a fully-equipped stage and sound-system, with a passionate in-house sound team.
The Lighthouse strive to bring you an eclectic mix of music and creative events, hosting amazing artists from around the country and beyond. The majority of our events are free entry, with the occasional special ticketed mid-week show. As well as regular live music, other events include our popular monthly Quiz Night and a growing number of comedy and theatrical shows.
Ok so Sus4sessions aren’t exactly a venue but they deliver some of the best intimate gigs around at secret wood locations and the Westerham Brewery. Last year they had some incredibly talented artists on their line-up and 2019 looks like it is going to be even better. They are all about discovering new talents, and bringing people who love music together in the most beautiful and spectacular settings. This is what it is all about.
The Rock Lodge, Whitstable
"Old-school, alpine glamour with a contemporary twist, stylish cocktails and a delicious fine dining experience. The Rock Lodge has an authentic alpine feel with a bespoke dining and cocktail menu, set alongside an eclectic mix of the best live music around"
The Rock Lodge provide so much opportunity for musicians. Their open mind to various music styles ensures that everyone has the chance to perform and experience a different music style. The beautiful setting and friendly staff members make this a phenomenal place to eat drink and get your music fix.
The Huntsman, Rochester
The Huntsman is a great place to witness a variety of bands. With music every Friday and every other Sunday, there are lots of opportunities to get out and enjoy live music here. We have recently run our first live originals band showcase and it was great to see so many people come out and support young and up and coming musicians. Various styles of music ensures there will be something for everyone and the dance floor is always packed!
