Brixton Academy Rocks

Advantages: Fantastic intimate venue
Disadvantages: Queues and ticket touts

I came across this venue whilst surfing the net for gigs and I am so glad I happened upon it. I love looking thro different catagories on ebay (internet auction site) and Im a huge fan of Linkin Park - with this in mind I happened to find that they wer ...

Step Inside Into A New World!

Advantages: Excellent Sound, Easy To Get To
Disadvantages: Security Doesn't Check You For Anything Illegal Which May Be Bad

I have been to Brixton Academy twice last month and I have only ever been there twice in my whole life. At first, I wasn’t particularly happy about going all the way to Brixton when I found out that my favourite bands were going to play there because Wemb ...

Advantages: very pretty, comfortable seats, won't get squashed in the stalls, water-fountain in the toilets
Disadvantages: quite expensive

Welcome to Brixton-Population-56

Advantages: Great sound quality, close to public transport clean and safe.
Disadvantages: In a rough area of london, when seated a barrier clouds view, food and drinks cost.

ABOUT THE VENUE: Brixton academy is an award winning ex theatre venue that lies in the borough centre of Brixton. However that might make some people frown straight away, Brixton is hardly known to be the friendliest place. There is a tube station ...

The best venue in London

Advantages: 3000 capacity but still feels like a smaller venue, sloping floors = good views
Disadvantages: Beer runs down a sloping floor - remember this before you sit down

...From Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine in 1992 to Weezer in 2002, the Brixton Academy has given me the many of the best gigs that I have seen. For a venue that holds approx. 3000 people the Academy has an intimate feel to it that Wembley and London Ar ...
