Search for cheap hotels near O2 Brixton Academy
Brixton in south London is an up and coming area of London with a lively nightlife scene. Due to the Windrush migration in 1948, when many West Indian communities settled in Brixton, the area is known for its authentic Caribbean cuisine, colourful market and its highly respected Reggae music scene. During the 1980s, when this style of music was becoming increasingly popular, the Brixton Academy, a large, Art-Deco style venue, was instrumental in brining this music to the masses and today it is one of London's most popular alternative venues, with well-known bands such as Maximo Park, New Order and Arcade Fire all playing gigs there in recent years.
"Major London venue"
The venue started life as a theatre, when it was built in 1929, and many of the interior features have been kept such as the proscenium arch, ornate entranceway and the interior decoration. When the building fell derelict there were various ideas for how to make use of it, but it wasn't re-opened until 1983, when it became The Brixton Academy. Alongside a full programme of local reggae bands, the venue also staged shows by major rock and pop artists, including Wham, Eric Clapton and The Police, which helped The Brixton Academy to become the major London venue it is today.
"Has been voted Venue of the Year 12 times"
The Brixton Academy recently became known as the O2 Brixton Academy due to a sponsorship deal with the telecommunications giant, and as the largest, non-arena venue in London it is still going strong, with sold out gigs and accolades from music publications such as NME, which have voted it as 'venue of the year' 12 times since 1994. The venue has been the site of many major live albums such as Hole's 1995 MTV unplugged session, the Pixies' 2004 live album, Damien Marley Live at The Brixton Academy and the Dave Matthews Band's Across the Pond album. The venue also books major bands such as The Prodigy, Nine Inch Nails and Rammstein, but to satisfy the venue's now diverse audience, there have been several pop and dance gigs. Comedy troupe The Mighty Boosh has also played a record run of seven nights at the Academy.
"Historic sights such as Electric Avenue"
Brixton may not be as picturesque as parts of London lying north of the River Thames, but it has been regenerated heavily in recent years and it has a very lively scene to explore, with trendy bars, historic sights such as Electric Avenue, the first London street to have electricity and a range of quirky shops, making it a fascinating place to stay during your London trip. The Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel has uber-trendy decor and a fantastic restaurant in Vauxhall, just a short tube ride away from Brixton. Peckham Lodge is a bright and comfortable hostel in a surprisingly ornate building, in Peckham, just a 20-minute walk from Brixton. Dolphin House is a large apartment complex in Victoria, just a few tube stops from Brixton, offering very stylish, modern units; and The Carlton Hotel is a low-cost establishment in Victoria offering comfort for less to suit the budget traveller.
