Gig Goer

If you live and breathe music and your ideal night out always includes live music, Buxton gives you plenty of opportunities to follow your passion. Whether you idolise popular artists or champion local bands, you’ll find gigs and events to suit you. Music is central to Buxton’s identity with the famous Buxton Opera House hosting everything from classical concerts to comedians, as well as annual events like Buxton Rocks and the famous Y Not Festival just a few miles away.

The town also has an exciting pub music scene and, if you’re passionate about playing music, Buxton has regular open mic nights, or you could even challenge yourself by competing at the Buxton Music, Speech and Drama Festival.  Buxton is also within travelling distance of large arenas in Manchester, Sheffield and Birmingham that host the biggest names in music, as well as countless smaller, more intimate venues.

If life is better with music for you, join us and experience what Buxton has to offer.
