Tivolis Koncertsal is a 1,660-capacity concert hall located at Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, Denmark. The building, which was designed by Frits Schlegel and Hans Hansen, was built between 1954 and 1956.

The hall used to host pop and rock concerts. Notable artists that have performed at the venue include The Grateful Dead, Elton John, Procol Harum, Uriah Heep, Cream, Jerry Lee Lewis and Jethro Tull.[1] Today it is primarily used for classical music. The Eurovision Song Contest 1964 was broadcast from the auditorium.[2]

In 2005 the concert hall saw a major renovation and extension by 3XN where the classical 1950s style of the main auditorium—including a characteristic color scheme of red, blue, yellow and green—was restored, while visitor facilities were upgraded and expanded.
