The O2 Academy Newcastle (formerly the Carling Academy Newcastle) is a music venue in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. It was opened on 14 October 2005 to an evening headlined by Sunderland band The Futureheads.

The venue was converted from a bingo hall in the summer of 2005 at a cost of four million pounds. The building had originally opened as the New Westgate Picture House in 1927 and later became the Majestic Ballroom. Its two-level auditorium has a capacity of almost 2,000 (standing and seating). The venue is operated by the Academy Music Group and sponsored by network operator O2. The venue was formerly known as "Carling Academy Newcastle", being rebranded following a multi-million pound deal between O2 and music promoter Live Nation
