Independent Venue Week: The Specials live in London

As part of IVW Steve tours five locations around the UK and shines a light on the alternative music scene in each place. The tour concludes with The Specials live in London.

Independent Venue Week (IVW) returns for its 6th year and, to celebrate, Steve Lamacq tours five locations around the UK and shines a light on the alternative music scene in each place, highlighting the grassroots music venues that have become the bedrock of the local area. This year, Steve will be broadcasting from Edinburgh, York, Worcester, Bedford and - tonight – finishes the week in London at the world famous independent venue the 100 Club. Steve will be looking at the history of the venue, Don Letts is DJing, plus there is a very special, hour long, live performance from The Specials.
Founded in 2014 as a way to celebrate the heroes that own and run small venues all across the country, Independent Venue Week has grown massively in six years. Starting out with just 17 venues in 2014, it has grown this year to over 200 venues. The project will run from Monday 28th January - Sunday 3rd February 19
