London Brixton Academy
The Carling Academy Brixton is a large music venue in Brixton, South London with a capacity of 4,921. It was built in 1929 at a cost of £250,000 as the largest of four "Astoria" theatres. The venue was renamed from the 'Brixton Academy' to the 'Carling Academy Brixton' after the Academy Music Group took it over in 2004. The venue is currently called 'O2 Academy Brixton'.
