Andy C to become first drum’n’bass act to headline The O2 in London

Andy C is set to become the first drum’n’bass artist to headline The O2 in London – tickets for the show will be available here.

The DJ, producer and RAM Records co-founder (real name Andrew Clarke) will host his “ground-breaking” ‘Alive 2.0’ show at the 20,000-capacity venue on Good Friday next year (April 7, 2023).

“I can’t believe it… we’re going to The O2 ARENA LONDON!” Clarke wrote on social media to announce the milestone gig, which will be his biggest to date.


‘Alive 2.0’ will see the DJ perform a five-hour set featuring a “brand new immersive visual show & production”. The DJ went on to describe the upcoming event as “a true celebration of our amazing music… drum’n’bass”.

Clarke continued: “Throughout my career I’ve had the honour to play in places and venues beyond my imagination. I’ve had the chance to share the love and vibes that only drum and bass can bring with so many of you and I can’t believe we have reached a venue as iconic as The O2 Arena London…absolutely insane!”
