Edinburgh Corn Exchange became O2 Academy Edinburgh in September 2021, adding to the existing UK portfolio of now 20 award-winning venues that are owned and operated by Academy Music Group, including Scotland’s O2 Academy Glasgow and London’s iconic O2 Academy Brixton and O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire.

A category B listed building with a unique history, the Corn Exchange was built in 1909 and over the last two decades, Marco’s Leisure Ltd has transformed the Corn Exchange to become one of the city’s largest standing, multi-purpose, award-winning venues.

Its reputation for live music began with a sell-out show with Blur in 1999, leading to outstanding performances in recent years with major international headline acts including Foo Fighters, Biffy Clyro, Oasis, Coldplay, Faithless, Arctic Monkeys, Garbage, Grace Jones, Radiohead, Paulo Nutini, Pulp, Calvin Harris and many more.
