Independent Venue Week

Independent Venue Week has been in full swing with people coming together around the country to celebrate and support the venues that hold the start of adventures for many. As photographers we start off in small independent venues with little light or space to shoot and it’s the greatest challenge.

IVW started out in 2014 with just 17 venues putting on events, fast forward to 2018 and there are now 180 venues putting on events across the UK and is set to launch in the US this summer. To celebrate Independent Venues, we reached out to gig photographers to share their work.

Balkan Bashavel in Véčko, Bratislava, Slovakia.
The former University club regularly hosts crazy dance events like this.
Taking pictures there on stage and backstage is always challenge and honor!

I think we speak on behalf of all gig photographers when we say a massive thank you to independent venues and everyone behind them.
