This list was updated on 19/01/2022 and has been established as the go to list for Open Mics across London UK since February 2013. Then the pandemic happened and it has since evolved but with the same aim to advertise various music based open music events across London. Contained are 56 weekly open mics, which covers every day of the week and 18 which occur on a specific day of the month. That is 74 open mics listed and most open music gigs start between 7 - 8 pm unless otherwise stated.  Please contact the venue or host directly if you require further information. Some open mics / jams you can turn up at and some will need you to pre-book slot in advance.
Open music gigs marked as status uncertain are ones I have only heard of their existence. Open Mics come and go frequently and you may need to contact the venue or the usual host to check if the open music event is running. If you know of any other open music events or open mic FB fan pages / websites, please send me a message via the contact page on this website.
For the latest information, you may want to follow the official Instagram account and YouTube account, which are both called London Open Mic and Music. Each account will have photos  / videos of the some of the venues I have visited, which I hope would provide an indication of what each open mic is like. I also post regular on my Facebook account called Louie London! - I also use the hashtag - #louielondonmedia - in most of the posts on these platforms if you would like to view more the photo and video work I have done.
