Through our music choice we hope to encourage a tranquil, mellow morning atmosphere, typically playing light classical or opera before 11am and then pick up tempo with Latin music or jazz which moves to acoustic and other cool genres in the afternoon.         If you want to listen to some of the new music we have recently selected just click on the radio at the top right of the page. 

We’ve supported talented grass root musicians (many of whom haven’t even been signed yet) for many years now and we allow them to reach and develop an audience through Caffè Nero.

Our Artist of the Month holds intimate free of charge gigs in our cafes across the UK, has exposure in our cafes via leaflets and posters and of course we play their music every afternoon during their month!

There is always something interesting and exciting happening with our music programme so check out what’s going on at the moment below. 

Artist of the Month


In September we are proud to be introducing Rothwell as our Artist of the Month, playing every day in all Caffe Nero’s worldwide at 15.30 for 15 minutes.

Rothwell is a young British singer-songwriter from Bristol ready to make her mark on the music world with her sultry and rich voice. We first heard her last year when she released her debut EP and were blown away by her obvious talent. She has just released her second EP ‘Two’ which has had a great reception in Caffe Nero. As well as her remarkable voice she is a very talented songwriter and has collaborated on two tracks with Ed Tullett and Gordon Mills Jr (Ed Sheeran).

Rothwell recently supported Macy Gray on her UK tour and performed at The Cornbury Music Festival to great acclaim. She will be performing live in a few Caffe Nero’s in the Bristol and Bath area in late October as well as on the Heathrow T2 Nero stage on the Sunday 18th September at 10.00am.
