We promised you some big news, so here it is. Watch the video.
After selling out every Chapter since we started back in 2012, we can now reveal that CHAPTER 36 on Sunday September 25th will be at the historic BRIXTON ACADEMY. This will mean our September 2016 show will be the BIGGEST show that we’ve ever put on, with a venue capacity of approximately 2000. Yep, that’s TWO THOUSAND. Let’s fill the place with PROGRESS Ultras and make some history!
We are also happy to report that for this show we are partnered with the splendid folk at LIVE NATION, the brains behind hundreds of gigs each year, Download Festival and the recent NXT Tour of the UK.
We know you’re likely to have a few questions about the show – so we’ve tried to answer most of them here:
Q: I’ve got a season ticket. Is this show still included in it?
A: Oh yes. You showed faith in us by buying a season ticket, so it most certainly counts for this show in Brixton. We will be in touch to arrange you sorting out your ticket allocation, which will have to match your season ticket band.
Q: How will the tickets be sold for the show?
A: Tickets will be on sale shortly, with the on-sale date TBC (but it will be SOON). Sales will be handled by Ticketmaster, and as this is a much bigger venue we will be using allocated seating; so when you buy a ticket, you choose exactly where you and the rest of your party sit and you are given a ticket number. Prices are also TBC, but we’ll do our very best to keep them as affordable as possible.
Q: Will the show start at the same time as the Ballroom shows?
A: Door and bell time TBC, but we expect to keep things more or less the same as usual. We’re currently ironing out all the behind the scenes stuff.
Q: Does this mean PROGRESS is moving to Brixton permanently?
A: No. This show is a huge ONE-OFF special event. All of our other London chapter shows in 2016 will remain at the Electric Ballroom in Camden (as we love it there).
Q: As it’s such a big show, do you have any other events planned on the day?
A: We’re looking into potentially doing a VIP / meet and greet package, again we’ll let you know about that ASAP.
Right then. Spread the word. It’s a big ask to fill the Brixton Academy… but if anyone can do it, it’s the PROGRESS Ultras. Tell everyone you know and feel free to use the hashtag #ProgressBrixton.
Now THAT’S how you start a new year properly.
Jim, Jon and Glen
This. Is. PROGRESS.
