The magazine rated an assortment of venues on a range of (unspecified) criteria, and found Brixton to be second only to Mexico City's Auditorio Nacional. A ceremony arranged for February will confirm their results.
The top five music venues in the world read like this:
1 Auditorio Nacional (Mexico City)
2 Brixton Academy (London)
3 Color Line Arena (Hamburg)
4 Heineken Music Hall (Amsterdam)
5 Manchester Evening News Arena (Manchester)
DiScuss: Has anyone out there been to this Auditorio Nacional? Do they sell beer for less than £3 a pint?
