Venue focus

O2 Academy Bristol

In November 2001, AMG opened O2 Academy Bristol which quickly established itself as an essential part of the local nightlife, bringing its unique blend of quality live music and top UK club nights to the West Country. 

A key date on the UK's touring circuit O2 Academy Bristol has seen a host of internationally acclaimed artists take the stage in its exciting history and is the place to experience live music in Bristol. 

In June 2006, AMG added a second venue, O2 Academy 2 Bristol; a 350 capacity production-complete, stand-alone gig that also acts as an additional room for club nights. 

O2 Academy Bristol hosts up to 250 events per annum across its two venues, with in excess of 220,000 people flocking through its doors each year.
