Salon IKSV is the concert and event hall of the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and the Arts (IKSV), which is an organisation that’s playing a great, hopeful role in Istanbul cultural life with the events, exhibition, festivals and concerts they organise.
Salon is the ground floor of the IKSVs headquarters located in a corner of the historic Beyoglu (Taksim) district. It’s a relatively small concert hall with an entresol floor. I strongly recommend taking a look down from the upper floor to have an aerial view of the stage and crowd.
They stage a niche selection of not that well-known artists and most of the time have a great ambitious audience. If you are willing to take a blind shot and discover an artist for the very first time live, this is the schedule you should check.
You can also check their schedule to see their events besides the concerts. You may catch some art events or film screenings.
