  • have regular blogs with music news from in and around Edinburgh
  • be the place to listen again to the Alive & Amplified radio show that goes out live on Shore Radio on Wednesday nights 7pm-9pm.
  • create a weekly gig guide so you can keep up to date with what is happening in Edinburgh in the coming week.

At Alive & Amplified we feel it is important for you to form your own views of the music scene and for that reason we welcome feedback, requests or submissions. We do not do reviews. We all love different music and that’s why music is great.
