★★★★★ “You really had to be there…. In turns exhilarating, exhausting, engrossing and entertaining – and often all at once – this was a series of one-off performances to inspire and thrill.” Hackney Gazette on Collabo 2016

From 10 to 12 November we celebrated an incredible 10 years of Collabo as Tony Adigun brought together some electric hip hop collaborations, showcases and interpretations over three packed out nights. Check out Tony talking about Collabo on London Live and sharing some exclusive clips of the show.
