O2 Academy Brixton has long been hailed London’s flagship venue, a must-play for artists and must-visit for music lovers. It has scooped the NME “Best Venue” award on an incredible twelve occasions between 1994 and 2007, proving its popularity with fans and the media alike and in 2009, received the Music Week ‘Venue Of The Year’ Award. With a capacity of almost 5,000, it is truly one of a kind on the circuit and combines the feeling of an electrifying arena sized atmosphere, with great views because of its sloping floor and incredible capabilities for production. Anyone who has waited for their favourite band to walk on stage at the South London venue will testify to its unbeatable atmosphere. Its magnificent art deco interior has been preserved and it houses Europe’s largest fixed stage, framed by an elaborate proscenium arch, based on the design of the Rialto Bridge.
O2 Academy Brixton restrict the age of those attending to children 8 years old and over due to sound levels and crowd profiles. We strongly discourage bringing any child under the age of 8 to shows unless agreed in writing with the Venue Management in advance of the show. To attend a show unaccompanied you must be over the age of 14.
Children (8-13) attending shows should have appropriate ear protection provided by their legal guardian. The Venues do not provide suitable protection for younger patrons. Accompanying adults should be confident that the child will not cause disruption to other patrons and may be asked to leave the venue if they do so without a refund.
Patrons with a child / children under 8 arriving at the venue without any prior contact and appropriate hearing protection will need to speak with the duty manager who will assess the situation. If the duty manager feels that there is no way to accommodate the child safely in the venue due to sound levels, crowd profile, type of act etc. then they have the right to refuse entry without a refund.
Anyone over 8 & under 14 years old must be accompanied by an adult (over 18) and seated in the Circle upstairs balcony / seated area. No more than two under 14 year olds per adult.
The Venue Management have the right to refuse entry without a refund.
Children who appear to look under the age of 14 that arrive at a show and cannot prove they are 14 or over may be refused entry depending on the type of show. This decision will be made by the duty manager. Parents will be called to collect their child if the show is not suitable for the person to attend unaccompanied. No refund will be given in this instance.
Some events are Over 18’s and in some cases over 21’s with no exceptions.
