Edinburgh music venues: Here are the 14 top venues in Edinburgh - from The Playhouse to Sneaky Pete's

We take a look at the Capital’s best concert venues

With the long-running debate on whether or not Edinburgh should have its own 10,000 or more concert arena similar to the OVO Hydro in Glasgow or Aberdeen’s Exhibition and Conference Centre, we have taken a look at the Capital’s existing music venues.

Although we might not yet have a multi-million pound all-singing, all-dancing arena to draw the world’s biggest acts to the Capital, we have some of the most exciting intimate venues, particularly down Edinburgh’s Cowgate area, with other larger venues including the 109-year old Usher Hall on Lothian Road and the increasingly popular Royal Highland Showground at Ingliston.
