Brixton has played host to some of the biggest names in music and is one of the most popular music venues for all genres in the United Kingdom. If you are planning on attending a gig in Brixton, here is our handy survivor guide.
Going to a gig in Brixton
You can reach Brixton by taking either the Victoria Line or Northern Line. The nearest stops to Brixton are Brixton and Stockwell accordingly.
- Challenge 25
If you appear under 25, you may be asked to produce a form of identification in order to be permitted entry to a venue. Bring a form of identification such as a passport or driving licence with you in order to avoid disappointment.
- Free drinking water
Combat the effects of dehydration by availing of the free drinking water available at a number of bars in the venues.
- Noise & sound levels
The music at many gigs can reach ear-splitting levels and can cause permanent damage to your hearing. Many venues will offer ear plugs in order to protect your hearing.
- Strobe lights and pyrotechnics
Many bands use pyrotechnics and strobe lighting effects in the course of their shows. This can have an adverse effect on anyone who suffers from photosensitive epilepsy.
- iPads and tablets
Many concert-goers now use tablets in order to record memories of their favourite songs and bands. Recording with a tablet can be somewhat obtrusive to other patrons and many venues will ask you to refrain from recording with an iPad or tablet. You may be asked to leave a tablet in the cloakroom to be collected at the end of a performance.
