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

Belle Roscoe

We first discovered Belle Roscoe in October 2015 (thank you Tony) and after just one listen of their brilliant music we knew they were the band of 2016 for Caffe Nero!

With their new wave indie rock sound BELLE ROSCOE, a 5-piece band hailing from Melbourne in Australia has been busily building a solid underground buzz in the UK. Led by siblings Matty & Julia Gurry, Belle Roscoe have been described as “...Fleetwood Mac meets Arcade Fire” and were the first Australian band in history to close the Cannes Film Festival. Belle Roscoe have spent time working hard in Europe defining their sound & collaborated with European musicians, renowned DJ producer Luuk Cox and have recently worked with legendary US producer Phil Ek. Refreshingly cool & epic indie melodies married with an underground contemporary electronic world are the result.

In March 2016, Matty & Julia relocated to London and have since performed over 100 shows around the world including a few for Caffe Nero! The band have recently hit recording studios in London to track some exciting new material (which they cannot wait to release...) and will travel to Cuba in December to play in Havana!

Belle Roscoe will be playing a special Caffe Nero gig at The Bedford in Balham, SW London on the 29th November and there is a special competition running! - purchase any piece of band merchandise from their website or at a live gig and you plus a friend could be smoking cigars & downing rum with them in Cuba whilst trying your hand at the tango! Flights & accommodation provided for five whole days... find our more about Belle Roscoe and the competition at
