You know the deal with most gig venues. A dark, dingy room, puddles of sticky beer on the floor, and someone’s elbow in your face as you try to mosh to your favourite band. Standard.

But some venues are not only a lot more civilized than that, but really rather breathtaking. London’s Royal Albert Hall is an opulent delight fit for a king, while over in Sweden the stunning Dalhalla amphitheatre is set in a limestone quarry. Turkey’s Great Theatre of Ephesus was built way back in 10th century BC and Pennsylvania’s SteelStacks has five huge blast furnaces looming in the backdrop. Here we take you on a trip around the world via the dreamiest gig venues ever.
