Brighton is the Electronic Music Capital of the UK

Research from event ticketing search engine TickX has showed the city has nearly seven times more electronic gig and club nights per person than London.

According to the report, Brighton has an impressive 3.3 electronic events per 1,000 people.

Welsh town Llandudno came in second with 2.4 electronic events per 1,000 people, with Manchester in third with 2.3.

Amazingly, London was ranked just 26th with just 0.5 electronic events per 1,000 people.

Brighton has steadily cultivated a reputation for some of the most innovative arts and music in the UK, with many of the country’s best and brightest in their field flocking to “London-by-the-sea” to join a thriving, creative metropolis.

Electronic music has consistently been popular in Brighton, with venues throughout the city such as The Arch, Patterns and Brighton Centre regularly hosting specialist events. However, in 2016, Brighton’s reputation for electronic music was enhanced with the launch of Boundary Brighton, its own flagship festival dedicated to electronic music.

Taking the best of Brighton’s creative energy, lust for life and generosity of spirit, Boundary Brighton is a festival with three stages of music, a vintage fair, delicious local food and other unexpected treats, all nestled between the crest of the Downs and the City with the sea below.

Some of the biggest drivers of Brighton’s music scene have been the youth and those helping to develop their skills like local charity AudioActive, led by Brighton Native Rory Graham AKA Rag’n’Bone Man.

Steve Pearce, TickX CEO, said: “We are passionate about celebrating places that have established themselves at the forefront of entertainment. Brighton is famously one of the country’s most creative hubs and we’re delighted to name the city as the ‘UK’s Capital for Electronic Music’. Its reputation as the place to be for electronic gigs and club nights will no doubt continue to grow as the Boundary Festival and other electronic music events in the city get bigger and better every year.”
