Best gigs happening at Alexandra Palace in 2020

Cage the Elephant

Bombay Bicycle Club, Mura Masa, Dermot Kennedy and more perform at the iconic London venue

Since it opened in 1875, Alexandra Park and Palace has been home to awe-inducing entertainment, spanning theatre, cinema, music and even ice skating. Across eight spaces the venue acts as a cultural hub for north London and has hosted numerous iconic musicians – including Pink Floyd, John Lennon, Blur and more – over the years. Here are the best gigs to see at Ally Pally in 2020.

Bombay Bicycle Club

The indie four-piece the UK knows and loves are back with more twinkly feel-good tunes in the form of their fifth record Everything Else Has Gone Wrong. Expect classic tracks like 'Always Like This', 'Ivy & Gold' and more to sandwiched into their set.
Fri 7 & Sat 8 Feb. Book Bombay Bicycle Club tickets.

Mura Masa

This electronic music producer is hot property right now and rightly so. He bagged a Grammy back in 2019 for his Remix of Haim's track 'Walking Away' and the release of second album R.Y.C. is imminent. The record follows on from the ultra-cool 2017 debut that features everyone from A$AP Rocky to Charlie XCX.

Dropkick Murphys

The American-Celtic punk band formed in Quincy, Massachusetts in 1996 and have been making music ever since. The hardcore punks are known for their loud and energetic live performances, bringing a plethora of instruments including bagpipes, a mandolin, a tin whistle, an accordion and a whole host more to the stage.
Fri 21 Feb. Book Dropkick Murphys tickets.

Cage the Elephant

These American rockers broke out with their self-titled debut album back in 2008 thanks to singles 'In One Ear' and 'Ain't No Rest for the Wicked'. Their fifth record Social Cues came out last year which can be heard live and loud at Ally Pally this February.
