Name: KOKO

Address: 1a Camden High St London NW1 7JE

Website: www.koko.uk.com

Telephone No: 020 7388 3222

Date Founded: 1900 (opened as a theatre) / 2004 (in its current incarnation)

Capacity: 1,410

Brief History: The venue began life in 1900 as The Camden Theatre, took on various guises until it became Camden Palace in 1982, and in 2004 it became the KOKO we see today.

Personal Experience: KOKO is one of the most beautiful venues in London with its sumptuous red and gold colour-scheme, various layers of balconies, and enormous mirror ball! I have seen a variety of bands play the venue but one of the most memorable evenings for me was seeing Tonight Alive play their album The Other Side in full.

Notable Acts Played There: Madonna, The Clash, The Rolling Stones, Prince, Good Charlotte, and My Chemical Romance.

Highlights Coming Up: Suicide Silence and Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes in March.
