O2 Academy Oxford

The 02 Academy Oxford's building was once the home of the Zodiac, Oxford's much-loved music hotspot; Radiohead shot the 'Creep' video on this spot. In 2006 it was bought by the Academy Music Group who gave it a multi-million pound refurbishment, creating new performance spaces. The downstairs space can hold a thousand people, whereas the more intimate upstairs room can take up to 436.

The nearest train station is Oxford, 15 minutes away by car; parking is available in the Union Street car park behind the Tesco. The venue is served by the following bus routes: 1, 5, 10, 12, 12C, 101, 103, 104, N1, NU5, T1, T2, T3, U1X, U5.
