Filming at Abbey Road Studios

 

Abbey Road is one of the most-loved locations for filming music performances in London. From The Beatles’ premiere of All You Need Is Love for the first-ever global live satellite TV broadcast, to Kanye West’s Late Orchestration, U2’s At The BBC and Harry Styles’ Behind The Album, we’ve been home to some of the most celebrated filmed sessions of the last 90 years.

 

Whether it’s for our legendary spaces or our recording expertise, Abbey Road continues to host pre-recorded and live streamed films, promo videos and much more. Artists from Florence + The Machine, Mary J Blige, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Amy Winehouse, The Killers, Seal, Paolo Nutini, David Gilmour and Paul McCartney to Sam Smith, IDLES, Bastille, Noel Gallagher, Celeste, Rudimental, Nothing But Thieves, Lewis Capaldi, Kano, Rag’n’Bone Man, Bree Runway, Griff, Yussef Dayes and Ed Sheeran have chosen our iconic rooms to film their performances. We’ve welcomed broadcasters including BBC, ITV, Channel 5, Amazon, Apple Music and Spotify, as well as our own Live From Abbey Road series with Channel 4.

 
 

As a working recording studio, each room features the authentic fixtures and fittings of the trade. And in the cases of Grade II listed Studios One and Two, the décor is largely unchanged since the 1950s. These beautiful and atmospheric rooms were designed for capturing the sound of live performance and offer an incredible warmth and unique atmosphere.

Studio One

 

The world's largest purpose-built recording studio, Studio One can comfortably accommodate a large symphony orchestra and chorus. It's played host to extravagant staging for Kanye West and U2, to more stripped back sessions with Harry Styles, Adele, Celeste, Rudimental and Jess Glynne showcasing the character of the room.

Studio Two

 

Made famous as home to artists from The Beatles, Cilla Black and Shirley Bassey to Kate Bush, Oasis and Radiohead, Studio Two is one of the most recognisable and sought-after studios in the world. Whether it’s a full set from Sam Smith, Paul McCartney or IDLES, a special performance by Kano, George Ezra, Nothing But Thieves, Take That or Royal Blood, or Nile Rodgers & CHIC turning the room into Studio 54 with Craig David and Stefflon Don for a music video, Studio Two is a place of magic.

Studio Three

 

Perhaps best known as home to artists from Pink Floyd to Frank Ocean and Florence + The Machine, as well as the scene of Amy Winehouse’s final recording with Tony Bennett, Studio Three offers a more intimate space, as well as our largest control room. It's hosted the BRITs Rising Star filmed sessions for the last six years, with artists from Mabel and Mahalia to Lewis Capaldi, Joy Crookes and Jorja Smith as well as filmed performances by Ed Sheeran, Ghetts, Zoe Wees and Olivia Dean.
