Madrid. The capital of Spain and the third largest city in the EU. And once you’ve tired of El Prado, El Retiro, tapas and pictures of Cristiano Ronaldo, and given up on trying to find the beach, this city that’s buzzing with nightlife and terrific bars is also an absolute heaven for live music – with a countless number of top notch venues.

Click on the name of the band or artist for further information, including info about the venue, links to a selection of videos and, if available, an example of a recent set – it of course being absolutely no guarantee that that will be the same set of songs they play on the night they’re in Madrid.

And if you can’t resist the temptation to check out any of these little beauties live, then you’ll also find links to buy tickets from a secure, reliable and reputable source.
