The O2 Academy Sheffield is found inside an iconic building in the centre of the city. The building itself dates back to 1968. Initially, it hosted the renowned Top Rank Suite. In 1985, the venue was converted into the Roxy Nightclub. In 2008, after a renovation and refurbishment, the O2 Academy Sheffield was established here. The current venue has a capacity of 2350 guests, and its visitors have been able to enjoy the live music shows of The Prodigy, The Black Keys, Babyshambles and Elli Goulding, to name a few.
The O2 Academy Sheffield is right in the centre of Sheffield, so you can reach it by car, train or bus.
By train and tube: the venue is just a 5-minute walk from the Sheffield Train Station, served by East Midland train routes.
By bus: the O2 Academy Sheffield benefits from a very convenient location, being right next to the bus stops FS3 (routes 31 and 57) and FS4 (routes 43, 43A, 43a, 44, 44A and 44a).
By car: you can find the venue without any trouble, as it’s close to the main road A61.
International: the O2 Academy Sheffield is just a 32-minute car ride from the Doncaster Sheffield Airport. East Midland train lines stop 3 minutes walk away from the terminal exit. Or, you can catch a bus to the city centre - you'll see a stop the second you leave the airport.
