Directions to Stereo
While the Gillygate-based venue might not offer you the stadium rock 'n' roll experience of a lifetime, it does provide a great place to drink, hang-out with friends and listen to a quality jukebox filled with everything from Led Zeppelin to Slipknot.
The space (which has a back-room for live shows and a front-room which acts as the drinking zone) has been the home for a range of long-running clubnights, most notably York's premier goth showcase Darklands, but it also promotes electronic night Freakin' and has also been host to various indie-centric music events in the past. Because of its reputation as a good ol' fashioned sweaty rock place, Stereo has unwittingly become a favourite for many established bands capable of selling out much bigger venues: Grammatics, The Computers, Diamond Head, Die So Fluid and AntiProduct have all performed in the space over the last few years while on global tours. So yeah, it's dirty and grimey, but it is certainly going to be your favourite little venue if you're into rock sounds.
Accessibility for the venue is another positive and it's just down the street from York St John University and so has always been a favourite for students. Though, it's not unusual to see some proper punks, old-school metalheads and made-up, glittering goths propping up the bar on any given evening. If you're new to the area and the space, then this might seem quite daunting, but we can assure you that the staff are always very friendly and accommodating and will greet you warmly and try their best to make your experience a good one. Arguably, there is no other venue in York that brings people from the various alternative music subcultures together like Stereo.
