More Life Tickets
Hosted by Flames Radio, a self-proclaimed global party Internet streaming station, More Life is an annual event held in Brixton. Since it began, the venue for the all-night performance and dance has been the O2 Brixton Academy. The music on offer has a distinctly Caribbean flavour, with plenty of dancehall, reggae, dub and tropical house to be heard. Held over the course of the Bank Holiday weekend in May, the event was first put together by the team at Flames Radio, along with Another Level Promotions.
More Life's format
Although it is billed as an all-night party event – something of a rarity for an organised club night in a live music venue these days in the capital – the O2 Brixton is subject to a 4 a.m. curfew. Nevertheless, given that the event kicks off at 9 p.m. the previous day, that still means that the event has allowed plenty of time for revelling and enjoying the music on offer. Since its inception, the More Life event has gained a reputation of attracting many partygoers from all over London and the southeast – not just people from the southwest corner of the capital.
Thanks to an impressive lineup at More Life in 2016, the event has gone on to win a reputation for great music among reggae fans. That event saw Agent Sasco, also known as Assassin, as well as Tarrus Riley, on the bill as live performers. However, no all-night event with a distinctly Jamaican vibe would be complete without the addition of some internationally renowned sound systems. In the past, More Life has not let fans down in this area, with Metro Media – a Jamaican sound system – providing the beats, as well as the impressive Mighty Crown offering dubs and skanking tunes to get the crowd's feet moving.
One of the keys to the success of More Life – indeed, what makes it stand out from similar events – is the promoters' desire to play reggae and dancehall. Blending the two musical styles is something of a rarity, with fans of each genre tending to diverge. More Life's approach is to keep everyone happy by playing sets of each style of music, helping to bring people together in a party-like atmosphere. The organisers are looking for what they call 'mass upliftment and unification' by standing up for all sorts of styles within Caribbean music and culture.
More Life's home
Since it began, More Life has been staged at the O2 Brixton Academy. With a capacity of just under 5,000 partygoers, it is one of the leading live music venues in South London. Although it started life as a cinema, the auditorium was converted to a dedicated music venue in 1983.
