    • The Kooks

      The run of seventeen headline shows will conclude with a huge show at London’s Alexandra Palace on 13 May.
      Since they burst onto the scene in 2006 with their unstoppable debut Inside In/Inside Out, which went 5x platinum last month, the Brighton based four-piece have gone from strength to strength.
      Now, with three more studio albums, a number of massive world tours, awards and critical acclaim under their belts, it was clear that the indie rockers’ ten-year anniversary is a significant occasion to celebrate their momentous career so far with a tour of all of their greatest hits. Fans will be given the chance to see performances of classic hits, B-Sides as well as brand new music that the band have been dedicating time to in the studio this year.

      14+ only. 14s to 16s accompanied by a adult.

      Disabled parking is located in the BBC car park. If you are a disabled ticket holder you can access the venue through the guest list/VIP entrance outside palm court. The disabled platform is located in the main arena to the left. Disabled toilets are located at the back of the main arena, please ask a member of staff who will be able to escort you. If you aren’t a disabled ticket holder and require a seat at the gig for other valid reasons, please go to the information point where they will be able to carry out a head count on the platform before the main act plays on stage to check if there is space.

      Lost property

      We all hate it if we lose something so please be careful and if you do lose anything please report it to the information point to see if anything has been handed in during the night. You can call us on 0208 365 2121 (Mon – Fri 9am – 5:30pm) after the event to see if your lost item was found during clean-up.

      Pickpockets

      Unfortunately pickpockets are known to operate at events so please be vigilant with your belongings and only bring with you what is needed. If possible try and use the cloakroom (£2 per item). If you notice anything suspicious please tell a member of security or report to the information point in the Palm Court.

      Party Responsibly

      We want you to enjoy the gig but please party responsibly. If you see someone having a bad time or needs help please point them out to a member of staff. It is venue policy and a condition of entry that you allow yourself and your belongings to be searched by the Police or Security. They may carry out random searches when you are entering the arena.

      Festival Village


      Not been to Ally Pally for a while? Well you need to know why our regulars are arriving early.


      Unlike other arenas we are a fully standing venue and we have a festival-style village that opens as soon as the doors do. Here you can experience award-winning street food, huge festival bars, and outdoor space with the best views of London. You can even get real ale! Yes, we have cask ale bars that serve locally brewed ale and great wines (not in plastic bottles or screw tops!).


      We think the build up to a gig should be fun so we go around town recruiting some of the best buskers in the city and have them entertain you on the festival stage. You can sit with your pals on the artificial grass and enjoy a cheeky bite to eat, have a nice drink, and experience the entertainment of London's finest street acts. There really is no reason to meet at the pub first. Just get up to Ally Pally - you won't be disappointed!
