I am a freelance writer currently reading Classical Literature and English at Leeds University. I hope you enjoy!
The only place to lose your voice
Looking for atmospheric heights, soul jerking melodies, a base that pulsates to your core?
As a venue in the centre of Leeds, the 02 Academy reflects the energy of the city in abundance, leaving you singing and dancing, hoping the sets will never end. Just off Millennium Square, this venue is not only intimate but high capacity. The balcony juts out over the relatively small dance-floor, meaning that wherever you are stood/seated you have a fantastic view, as well as feeling as if you are part of something truly special.
The 02 Academy Leeds has played host to many high end acts over the last few years, from the Reverend and the Makers, to Robbie Williams, and Lianne Le Havas. With 02 priorities you can also bag your tickets early and with an infinite choice of bands, you will soon be returning again and again.
Having myself seen Ben Howard at this venue in November, I took three things away with me; that the acoustics are incredible, the atmosphere is intense, and with tickets roughly £18, it was an unforgettable night for many reasons!
I will definitely be returning in the coming month. Will you?
