Since opening in the heart of Bath, England in on New Years Eve 1978, Moles has earned itself legendary status for it’s involvement in hosting and championing live music from acts on both a global and local scale.
Under the independent ownership of Live Music lovers Phil Andrews & Tom Maddicott, the Moles stage has been graced with such great acts as The Smiths, Radiohead, Oasis, Eurythmics, Bastille, Mumford & Sons and Ed Sheeran to name but a few. Wherever possible, Moles always draws on Bath’s very rich live music scene of bands and artists for support for these bigger names, exposing local acts to larger audiences to help both push their careers in music as well as enriching the local scene as a whole. As well as this Live Bands, Moles has also pushed many big dance acts and DJ’s such as Annie Mac , Simian Mobile Disco , Andrew Weatherall , Erol Alkan , Eats Everythingt , Groove Armada and many more. see full list of artists here)
In March 2014, due to an external electrical fault, Moles suffered a devastating fire which resulted in the venue closing. With not reopening never being an option the small Moles team have powered on through the fallout on into a full refurbishment and our proud to announce Nov 27th 2015 as the relaunch date returning the venue back to Bath’s Home of Live Music and back in to the fold of Britain’s amazing circuit of Independent Venues. Long Live Moles, Long Live Live Music!
