The evolution of live music in London



Although we’re going to more gigs and festivals than ever before, music streaming and the arrival of the smart phone fundamentally changed how we watch, listen and enjoy live music. With music streaming services, we have instant access to a larger variety of music than ever before. Live streaming apps like Periscope also enable us to watch live events, even if we’re thousands of miles away. In this tech-savvy decade, every genre of music reigns supreme – one minute you can be at a blues gig, and the next at a hard house rave – all at the swipe of your finger.

Tell us why you think the 10s is the best decade to experience live music.
