Live Music at O2 Brixton Academy - Award-Winning Art Deco Venue
This award-winning music venue first came to life as a cinema and theatre in 1929. Built for £250,000 as part of the
Astoria theatre chain, the Grade II listed building was eventually converted into an unsuccessful rock venue, leading to the
proposition that it be replaced with a motor showroom. Fortunately, the plans were scrapped and the building used as a storage
facility until 1981, when it was remodelled as a rock venue opened by a UB40 concert.
It was when the venue reopened as Brixton Academy in 1983 that it finally experienced success; its profile was raised as
it was used as a rehearsal space for the Police and Dire Straits in addition to providing a setting for video shoots for the
likes of Wham and Culture Club. 1995 saw a £500,000 refurbishment carried out to restore the original grand art deco-style
interior that has seen the likes of the Clash, Bob Dylan and Madonna pass through its grand entrance hall.
