In September 2009, AMG opened its new Birmingham venue in Horsefair, B1, after 9 previous years in Dale End, Birmingham. With a full building capacity of 3,859, it really is one of a kind in the Midlands, with three venues under one roof. A £5.5m development, all rooms are unique, feature state of the art production, with outstanding facilities for artists and customers. The main auditorium has a capacity of 3,009 with a seated balcony and attracts the biggest touring artists to Birmingham. Academy Music Group is committed to supporting new talent and has two additional smaller rooms, O2 Academy 2 Birmingham (600) and O2 Academy 3 Birmingham (250), for emerging artists to play in professionally equipped environments and is perfectly positioned for artists to return, playing to a larger audience on their development path. Birmingham was the first City outside of London, Academy Music Group chose to expand its venue portfolio over a decade ago. All venues can operate independently, or simultaneously.
