Shout! The Scottish Music Experience

You may have noticed it’s been quiet over here at Alive & Amplified over the past few weeks. The podcast is finished for series 1 and series 2 will be launching in August when I can actually interview real people, in a real venue before a real gig! Exciting stuff!

However, the real reason for the quietness over here is I have started a new job at Shout! The Scottish Music Experience. It’s a very exciting time, especially now with this light at the end of the tunnel looking closer than ever. With the remaining restrictions on live music and hospitality due to be lifted in Scotland on the 9th of August, we are now going full steam ahead to create an experience, live music bar, and rooftop bar like no other in Edinburgh.

The Scottish Music Experience – COMING SOON

Our full digital music experience tracking the history of Scottish music will open in the next few weeks. From Sir Harry Lauder & Lulu to Lewis Capaldi and Young Father we will take you through the ’50s, ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, ’90s, and ’00s with some of our best-loved musicians. Do you know Lulu’s real name? Are AC/DC Scottish or Australian? Are Young Fathers the most important band to come out of Scotland in a generation? Find out in our digital experience and check out some of our memorabilia from Simple Minds, Twin Atlantic, Amy MacDonald, and Lewis Capaldi and more.

Live Music @ Shout!

Not only do we want to celebrate Scottish Music from the past, but we want to champion the next superstars here in our music venue. We are looking for artists of all genres to play as Shout! Are you an up and coming band from Scotland? Do you run a label or are an independent promotor and are looking for a space to showcase your artists, get in touch –

We will also be booking acoustic cover acts for weekend afternoons in our venue, and for a bigger programme on our rooftop in the summer. Again, if you play covers please get in touch.

Shout! From The Rooftop

Along with our music history, we are very proud of our beautiful city of Edinburgh and we were delighted to add Shout! From The Rooftop to our offering. Not only can you sample some amazing cocktails and enjoy the view of Edinburgh’s historical Old Town, but we will create the “place to be” this summer. Every weekend we will have DJ’s playing some of their favourite music, but also yours if you get your requests in. Nothing is off-limits. Again, we are looking for artists, bloggers, labels, writers, podcasters to come along and play us some tunes, so if you are interested please get in touch –

Not Limited To Music

It’s not only music we want to host here at Shout! Our space can cater for comedy, poetry, theatre, film and many other events. If you have an idea and think Shout! could be the perfect venue to host get in touch with our events manager Denise –
