The Club


Estragon is one of the most important reality in Bologna. Known in Italy and Europe as well, for its work and its production of events in the musical field. For more than 30 years, the Estragon Club has become the main club of the city. If you want to go wild with indie rhythm, reload yourself with the energy of the electro clash sound, swing with a bit of reggae music and if you want to lose yourself with the best rock in town.

Maybe the most easy going club in Bologna. We don’t mind invasions of metalheads with leather jacket or hundreds of guys with tight necktie and nerdy eyeglasses. If you are looking for a show or an event involving good rock and world music, Estragon is the right place!
Located in “Parco Nord” area, the club is spacious and easy to reach, both if you arrive from the city centre or from outside town.
If space is needed, be sure: the concert will be at Estragon.

The best International and Italian artists have been performing on the stage of the Estragon Club in 30 years:
Editors, Block Party, Franz Ferdinand, Paul Weller, Modest Mouse, Damien Rice, Interpol, Babyshambles, Mogwai, Queens of the Stone Age, Of Monsters and Men, The Lumineers, 2Cellos, The Lemonheads, Skunk Anansie, Wilco, The Kooks, Caribou, Lauren Aitken ,Tomahawk, Doves, Low, Lambchop, Gomez, Juliette Lewis and the Licks, Melissa Auf der Maur, Einstürzende Neubauten, The Radio Dept, Pavement, The Notwist, Deus, PIL, Europe, Zita Swan, Mastodon, Babymetal, Elisa, Fedez, Vinicio Capossela, Elio e le Storie Tese, Francesco De Gregori, Subsonica, Bluvertigo, Verdena, Afterhours, Max Gazzé, Daniele Silvestri, Piero Pelù, Litfiba, Niccolò Fabi... and many more...
