We’ve Mapped Your Music Venues

Liverpool City Region Music Board is proud to reveal the new digital map which details useful information about local live music venues that is not accessible anywhere else. The map and its data will be used to support the local music eco-system.

The map is now live on the music board’s website

Created in partnership with the University of Liverpool, the music venues map is an ongoing project, which currently includes the precise locations, capacity, and the primary functions (i.e. arena, small music venue, concert hall or festival space) of all live music venues.

The next developments to the map will be the addition of data filters and overlays to clearly illustrate things like evening bus routes to and from venues, venues’ safety kite marks and also their alliances with other industry organisations and businesses.

LCR Music Board member and Lecturer at the University of Liverpool, Dr Mathew Flynn, said:

“This map has potential to benefit the local music eco-system; by hosting unique and useful data about the music venues in Liverpool and its surrounding boroughs we can better determine the value of the sector, both culturally and economically.

The project will develop overtime, with LCR Music Board continuing to liaise with and gather intelligence from the venues; which will help the board when advocating for policy change and supporting the venues with concerns like agent of change, identifying patterns of noise complaints, and the campaign for more night-time bus routes.”

The map is still in its infancy and relies on intelligence from music venues to continue this vital work. Venues can add themselves to the map by completing the online form, alternatively to modify existing information simply send an email to info@lcrmusicboard.co.uk.

So that LCR Music Board can enhance its knowledge of the sector, they are also asking music venue owners or managers to complete this short survey.
