Edinburgh’s Studio 24 Closes its Doors

Studio 24 has closed its doors after 25 years, with the development of residential flats next to the venue. The Musicians’ Union continues to call and campaign for Agent of Change in Scotland.

Edinburgh's live music scene suffered a disappointing blow as Studio 24, one of the city's best known alternative music venues, closed its doors after 25 years. 

The venue had been in ongoing disputes with neighbours and licensing standard officers since the development of residential flats next to the venue. 

Unfortunately, despite the recent amends to the local licensing policy, which relax the previous draconian 'inaudibility clause', the venue continued to face problems in this vein. 

The Musicians’ Union (MU) continues to call and campaign for the introduction of the Agent of Change principle which, if implemented, would have provided some much needed protection for Studio 24 and Edinburgh's live music scene.

Read more about the closure via the Edinburgh Evening News.
