Open Mic Listing

The London Music Open Mic, Jams and Open Music Event Listing

This list was established in February 2013 and was developed via the Facebook platform. It has since evolved from this place but with the same aim to advertise various music based open music events across London, which is continuously updated - (Updated on 03/07/2019). Contained are 139 weekly, which covers every day of the week and 53 which occur on a specific day of the month. That is 192 listed and most open music gigs start between 7 - 8 pm unless otherwise stated. Open music gigs marked as status uncertain are ones I have only heard of their existence. Open Mics come and go frequently and you may need to contact the venue to check if the open music event is running.
