Poll 2024: koko

Location: London, UK 

Capacity: 1,410 

Pass by KOKO, situated at the Mornington Crescent end of Camden High Street, in the early evenings and you’ll likely find a huge queue outside. This is due to the on-point bookings that have helped invigorate the London scene since it reopened in April 2022 after a devastating fire in 2020. Just some of the highlights from the last 12 months: Kerri Chandler’s four-week residency, The Weeknd’s official afterparty with Kaytranada, a Laurent Garnier special disco set, No Art with ANOTR, Ben UFO curates, Jeff Mills, amapiano sensation Uncle Waffles, and 30 Years of Metalheadz. The Grade Two-listed theatre, formerly the Camden Palace, has a long and storied history; back in the Top 100 Clubs for the first time since 2008, its next chapter is proving brighter than ever.
