Not many music venues have had entire books written about them, but the O2 Academy Brixton is a bit special. It began its life as a cinema in 1929, and several decades later it narrowly escaped demolition. After some years as an equipment store it settled into a career as a much-loved music venue, the Brixton Academy. Scads of legendary gigs have happened here, including the Smiths' last ever one, and since 1994 the NME Music Awards have made it venue of the year no fewer than 12 times. It's been the location for dozens of live albums and concert videos. Academy Music Group acquired it in 2004.

The nearest tube stations are Brixton (Victoria) and Stockwell (Northern). There's a pay-and-display car park operated by Lambeth Council at Buckner Road, and there are disabled parking bays outside the front of the venue. Buses to central London run from outside the venue.
