The O2 Academy Bristol is a popular music venue. Located in Bristol, United Kingdom, it was originally opened as a cinema in 1966. After that in 2001, it has converted into the night club. The facility has a severe capacity of 2500 people. There is a weekly organized event in the Academy, called Ramshackle. Everyone who is willing to have a memorable experience is welcome to visit the two rooms with different music. Famous performers like Sabaton
, Alestorm, and Kid Ink, had their shows hosted by the club.
