After three years of construction and restoration, KOKO reopened its doors in April 2022. The KOKO Founder and CEO Olly Bengough set himself a goal which was to redefine live music and entertainment by supporting and empowering the next generation of musicians.
The new KOKO features the beautifully restored Victorian theatre and the immersive new ‘Fly Tower’ experience. In addition, Olly chose a Harlequin Standfast black vinyl floor for the main stage. The Harlequin installation team completed this last year before the grand opening.
Artists such as Dua Lipa, Amy Winehouse, Skepta, Dave, H.E.R, Childish Gambino, Brockhampton, Janelle Monae and Halsey have performed at KOKO, many of whom went on to become Grammy award winning stadium acts.
Whilst KOKO has always been a favourite of the stars, the new KOKO continues its mission by creating more spaces for artists to play and livestream in the building, supporting talent on the new KOKO Radio station and through the new KOKO Foundation.
