I was at the O2 Academy on the 14th September to see Molotov Jukebox. Great Band, great atmosphere, good time had by all. However drinks prices at the Academy extortionate, City prices plus some and some again!! Thank goodness for the free drinking water as...More
Went here to see Gary Numan and Adam Ant very good acoustics in here and very loud. The venue is situated in the middle of town. I would advise not going in your car as parking is not very good. If your going here do...More

Been to several gigs at O2 academy Oxford but we never learn. The Sherlocks gave a great performance - love them - but they were really let down by the sound. The levels on everything were way out and it was painful.
There was an...More

I’ve been going to see bands here since I was 14 (I’m now 20). I’ve never had any trouble but i would suggest maybe picking them up from the car park behind Tesco because the buses aren’t that regular from Cowley road
