Edinburgh Corn Exchange

Mark Bryce

The city’s only all-standing venue is the stop of choice for touring bands

For many reasons the Corn Exchange holds a tenuous grip on the affections of Edinburgh gig-goers, partly because it’s some way outside the city centre, amidst housing developments on the west side of the city. Having said that, Edinburgh isn’t big and it’s a ten minute journey from pretty much anywhere in town if you get on the right bus.

It also suffers from not having quite the same character as some of the grander concert halls in the city centre, being a long and rectangular room which is also used for exhibitions and conferences. Yet it’s also the only all-standing concert venue in the city, and a three thousand strong capacity crowd can fill the place with a terrific atmosphere. Artists to have played here over the years include Blur, Primal Scream, Oasis, Grace Jones, The National and Disclosure.
