The Barleycorn Music Club has one aim: To promote local, original music in Cape Town. If you’ve never played at the Barleycorn Music Club, apply today!
The Barleycorn Music Club
The Barleycorn Music Club is all about promoting local, original music. While this isn’t exactly unique, what sets the Barleycorn Music Club apart is that it attracts a listening audience.
This is not a nightclub or restaurant where the live acts can sometimes become background noise. At Barleycorn, when you play the audience will quietly sit and listen to your set.
This is not an audience looking for a party. This is an audience who, above all else, want to listen to your music.
The club meets every Monday night at 8 pm at the Villagers Football Club. This is based in Claremont, Cape Town.
There are usually four acts per night. These acts range from new up-and-coming musicians to established legends like Tony Cox. Entry is R40 for non-members and R30 for members.
There are snacks available and there is also a bar for drinks.
