Appropriately named, this energetic location is situated in the heart of Brixton - a known hub of multicultural creative genius - with many great musicians and performers originating from this vibrant corner of South London. Situated in an area with a heavy population of citizens that identify as Afro-Caribbean, Electric Brixton tickets from that culture are a regular feature of the buying and selling marketplace on StubHub.
Afro-Caribbean artists reign supreme
At this venue, the autumn of 2018 kicked off in the most culturally appropriate way possible, with September bringing a week long "Afropunk Takeover". In this unique celebration of cultures, the event featured some of the finest Afro-Caribbean artists in existence. Amongst those on the stage was RnB super group August Greene, but that was not all. There was also room for works of art and films relating to Afropunk culture, making it one of the most successful events of its kind in living memory. That month alone, like the ones that came after it, was packed with a number of great artists. Amongst those was DJ Jazzy Jeff, who was particularly beloved by "Generation Y" children in their day, and is best known for collaborating alongside the world-famous Will Smith. One of the highlights in the final month of the year was Kamaal Williams, whose unique style of "cool-hand" jazz saw people flock to StubHub and buy all remaining tickets a whole four months before his performance.
The role of Electric Brixton in society
Electric Brixton tickets have been in demand ever since the venue, formerly known as "The Fridge", re-opened under its current name in 2011. Three decades earlier, in 1981, The Fridge opened amidst a backdrop of social unrest, with that year seeing the first of two major Brixton riots in the 1980s. The role of The Fridge was of high importance then and has been ever since. For over three decades, people from various local communities have had the opportunity to bond under one roof through the enlightening power of music and performance. In turn, it has also given those from disadvantaged backgrounds - including those affected by economic recessions, such as people who suffered in the early 1980s - the opportunity to express themselves to a mass audience. The desired effect of promoting a greater sense of understanding was achieved shortly after opening, and the venue's profile grew over the years. In 1987, the venue gained worldwide recognition after the band You, You, You sold out and had their performance recorded for audiences outside the UK. Several famous DJs have also honed their skills inside the iconic locale, a process that continues today with the current generation of talents. That makes now the best time to buy and sell Electric Brixton tickets on StubHub!
