Please note that the time on the ticket is the doors open time and not the time that the performance starts.

4. Tickets

Tickets for events at KOKO are available via the Buy Tickets links on our Calendar. Once an event is sold out it will be marked as sold out on our website and there will no longer be a ticket link. Once this happens, the tickets really are gone I'm afraid.

Tickets purchased on the door on the night of the show must be paid for in cash.

5. Meet & Greets and/or VIP Packages

For shows other than BURST on a Friday night, meet and greet or VIP packages are not handled by KOKO - Please contact your point of purchase or the promoter for the show if you have any questions about your package.
