  • Event Overview
    • Enter Shikari

      Enter Shikari have unveiled a run of UK dates in “big rooms” for the start of 2016. Taking in some of the band’s biggest (non-festival) headline shows of their career thus far, the dates start with a pair of relatively intimate Scottish dates, then heading down the country before ending with a 10,000 capacity show at Alexandra Palace.

      The Wonder Years and The King Blues will be joining Enter Shikari on stage.

      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 rock and roll venue and we have a festival style village that is open as soon as the doors open.

Yes, we have cask ale bars the 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 grass and enjoy a cheeky bite of decent food, have a nice drink, and experience the entertainment of London's finest. There really is no reason to meet at the pub first. Just get up to Ally Pally - you won't be disappointed!
