Venue focus

O2 Academy Brixton

O2 Academy Brixton has long been hailed London’s flagship venue, a must-play for artists and must-visit for music lovers. The South London venue’s magnificent 1929 Art Deco interior has been lovingly preserved and it houses Europe’s largest fixed stage, framed by an elaborate proscenium arch, based on the design of the Rialto Bridge. With a capacity of almost 5,000, its sloping floor and incredible production capabilities give it an electrifying arena atmosphere with unbeatable views. The O2 Academy easily transforms from a gig venue into a club and dance environment using its unique ‘level dance floor’; also suitable for awards ceremonies.

The internationally renowned O2 Academy Brixton attracts over 500,000 visitors per annum, hosting over 120 events in a calendar year.
