Celebrating live music: New map showcases Cardiff's gig venues

A free map showcasing more than 30 live music venues across Cardiff has been launched.

It follows the success of the 'Save Womanby Street' campaign earlier this year.

  • Watch the launch and hear what people have to say!

The campaign led to a change in planning laws, with the aim of protecting venues big and small across Wales.

The map has been created by Daniel Minty, founder and presenter of the Minty's Gig Guide to Cardiff podcast.

I'm hoping to create a sense of unity really between all the live music venues

If people don't go out and see live music, these live music venues will not exist.

More than 30 venues are featured on the map

The maps feature hand-drawn illustrations of live music venues from across the city and Cardiff Bay, including the Wales Millennium Centre and St. David’s Hall to Tramshed and The Gate Arts Centre.

The funding for producing and distributing the map comes from the FOR Cardiff scheme, one of a number of Business Improvement Districts across the country.

Budgets are tight to deliver a lot of the projects that businesses want through the normal sources - through local authorities and through the police.

This allows businesses to have a say in what they want to see delivered.
