Independent Venue Week is back for its ninth year and after an online edition last time around, it’s back in person for 2022, taking over 210 indie venues across 93 towns and cities with gigs, interviews and comedy sets. Wet Leg, IDLES, Yard Act, Years & Years, James Bay, Nova Twins, Soak, and Porridge Radio are just some of the acts performing, with the likes of Carl Hutchinson, Shaparak Khorsandi, Choriza May and Bongo’s Bingo also taking to the stage.
There are also panel discussions, spoken word events, live podcast recordings, and film screenings happening across the week, with Steve Lamacq hosting a series of IVW shows on BBC 6 Music, and if you can’t make it out to any shows in person, you can also catch the documentary On The Road With Independent Venue Week on BBC iPlayer right now.
