KOKO, London, NW1
(rated by 0 people)
KOKO offers a great mixture of live bands and club nights that have put it at the heart of the Camden nightlife. The huge stage, broad balconies and plush upstairs bars are a reminder of its former role as the Camden Theatre (which originally opened its doors in 1900), and the deep red colour scheme, chandeliers and gilt molding give it a decadent air that matches the rock stars who grace the stage. It has an illustrious rock 'n' roll history, having hosted The Clash and the Sex Pistols in the 1970s, and The Eurythmics, Madness and Madonna in the 1980s.
In July 2010 came the addition of a huge 850 square foot roof terrace beneath the venue's iconic illuminated sign.
Home to Club NME every Friday - Expect live bands and resident DJs in the main room, plus pop-up shows and parties upstairs in the Gallery.

Buckle up and hold on tight! Camden is about to be sent into a frenzy once again as KOKO plays host to a monster line up of the bassline elite. The Bug, Dub Phizix & Stategy, Mala and Channel One Sound System join Soundcrash on 18 April 2015 to produce what is sure to be one of the most Earth-shattering performances of the year! As the Bug; Kevin Martin re-interprets genres, from dancehall to grime and dubstep to jungle. For nearly 17 years he’s proved himself the rare artist capable of placing these sounds into more outlandish contexts without sacrificing any of their ferociousness. He is a master of manipulating sound, with an ability to squeeze every last decibelle from a sound system – your eardrums will blow before the speakers ever do. His latest album ‘Angels & Devils’ released in 2014 by Ninja Tune, included an impressive roster of artist collaborations including Flowdan, Gonjasufi and copeland to name a few. Next up on the bill is Dub Phizix, an artist that is consistently moulding Drum and Bass as a genre and redefining it’s sound. Tunes like ‘Marka’ have become a staple within almost every set you’ll hear from the genre’s leaders and pioneers. With releases on prolific labels such as Exit Records, Critical and Soul:R, it’s clear that Dub Phizix is an artist that has cemented his position in the industry and doesn’t intend to let it go anytime soon. Mala is a producer, DJ, label owner and visionary. His music has paved the way for many producers within the scene and will continue to do so. Mala is a steadfast addition to any line up for Soundcrash, most recently being the sell out Headline show back in October 2014 alongside Congo Natty and Dillinja. If you missed that show. You’re not going to want to miss this one! He has a deep connection with sound, a quality that unites the powerful and the peaceful frequencies together in a manner that is hypnotic and memorable for every audience member. Finally, we have the duo Mikey Dread and brother Jah T aka Channel One, who’s successful mission of breaking down barriers via reggae music is being achieved by playing a string of new venues, festivals and different countries, taking their unique sound to Australia, New Zealand, Israel, Turkey and all over Europe. On top of this Channel One also celebrated 30 consecutive years at the Notting Hill Carnival making them one of the must see sound systems for attendees to Europe’s biggest street festival. As one of our favourite venues in London, KOKO always host a great show. With a line up like this, it’s a completely different ball game. Experience the music like never before and join us for what promises to be one a biggest nights of 2015! Don’t miss out on this one!
