We created Venuology to help musicians share information about music venues — alerting them to clubs that don’t treat musicians well, and also those that do. With this website, we hope musicians will have an easier time deciding where to perform — and as a result, that venues will feel more pressure to improve pay, sound quality or other problems.

The reviews on this site are written by our users — in other words, musicians! Venue reviews are subjective and you’re the best judge of the credibility of each review. Any musician can review a venue he or she has played at — join Venuology is free and anonymous.

Venuology is a project of the American Federation of Musicians, a labor union representing over 60,000 musicians of all genres in North America.

This is a beta version of our site, but all reviews and user registrations will remain in the final version. If you have suggestions or find elements that aren’t working properly, visit our contact page and let us know!
