2ManyDJs Announced a New Venue and Concert Date in London After The Closure of Brixton Academy


2ManyDJs have become the latest band to announce a new venue and date for their upcoming show in London after the closure of Brixton Academy.

O2 Academy Brixton will be closed until April after a fatal crowd crush at an Asake concert at this venue in December, and a number of concerts, in addition, are now postponed.

People outside the hall on December 15 were able to get into the show, which led to overcrowding and the cancellation of the concert halfway through. Two people died as a result of the stampede — 33-year-old Rebecca Ikumelo and 23-year-old security officer Gaby Hutchinson. The third participant, 21 years old, is still in hospital in critical condition.

After the O2 Academy Brixton licence was temporarily suspended until January 16, Lambeth Council said they would meet again that day to discuss the future of the venue. Before the meeting, a representative of the Academy Music Group (AMG), the company that manages the venue, said that it would be closed voluntarily until April while investigations continue. Then at the meeting it was announced that the license of the site will also be suspended for three months.

Today (January 31) 2ManyDJs tweeted that they confirmed their move to Printworks London.

They wrote: “We are so excited to finally announce that we have a new date and location to replace our show in Brixton, which we unfortunately had to cancel due to tragic events. Your tickets will be valid on @Printworks_LDN on February 17th with the same fantastic line-up! I can’t wait to see you there!” Visit here for tickets and more information.

Last December, 2ManyDJs told NME about the legacy of their iconic album “As Heard On Radio Soulwax Pt.2”, as well as about the indie dance scene of 2002 and that David Bowie is a fan of it.

“It’s still weird that we talk about Bowie as if we knew him but only met him once,” Steven told NME. “It’s pretty crazy, even now. He was even on the forum of our little website as “David Bowie”, asking us questions, and we thought it was someone else!

“When we met him, Dave asked him how much time he spends on the Internet, and he replied: “Can’t you see that I’m on your forum all the time?” It seems such a strange world right now.”

Meanwhile, after the closure of Brixton Academy, many concerts at this venue are being moved to new venues across London.

Dates in January for Wallows, Sleep Token and PVRIS have been moved to Eventim Apollo, and the March Dry Cleaning and Beartooth concerts will now take place at The Roundhouse and OVO Arena Wembley, respectively. Meanwhile, Röyksopp have moved their show on February 19 to Troxy and are reselling tickets as a result, as the venue is smaller than Brixton Academy. Yard Act also recently moved their performance to Troxy.
