Welcome to the heart of Brixton and the main reason why people are moved to flock to the capital of south London. This much-celebrated venue presents sound at its most deafening, and seems to have nabbed the NME Awards for Best Live Music Venue every year since we were there grunging to Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”
In fact, Brixton has been entertaining folk since 1929, and is a testament to the belief that a good sound can’t stop and won’t stop. Brixton also introduced several key components that have made it stand out from the rest—a sloping floor, over 4,500 capacity and a 6am late-night license, the latter which makes the joint a particularly popular destination on club nights. But it’s the legendary performers, old and young, that lay Brixton’s claim to fame, from The Clash to Eric Clapton and Diana Ross.
