AREA 51 are a dynamic alternative rock band, hailing from Bristol, UK. We formed 5 years ago and have what it takes to be the next big thing. We are committed, ambitious, talented, hard working and our live performances never fail to impress.

We have played at The O2 Arena, Camden Rock and Monto Water Rats Club in London, The Colston Hall, Ashton Gate Stadium, O2 Academy and The Fleece in Bristol and many other great music venues around Bristol and the South West.

We have gigs lined up in London and Cardiff, at great festivals as well as our favourite locals venues this summer.
