We have good news for you: Printworks, East London’s new 5000-capacity venue and former printing facility is opening this weekend and we can’t wait to explore! Tickets sold out in 10 minutes, and with DJ heavyweights Seth Troxler, Loco Doce and Martinez Brothers christening the debut music series on 4th February, it’s easy to see why. Get ready to be mind blown.

Located in Canada Water, within the former printing facility for Metro and Evening Standard newspapers, the multipurpose space, the programmers describe as ‘Bladerunner on acid’, is set in a 16-acre site – big enough to fit 20 Fabrics and three times the capacity of Berlin’s Berghain!

Infectious grooves will pound through the soundproof press halls with William Kowan Djoko’s trans-Atlantic house blend warming things up. Some old machinery in situ adds to the industrial vibe, while the latest sound systems and laser technology will take ravers on a journey of surreal sounds and energy.

With the now successful battle to save Fabric nightclub, the opening of this experimental space means London’s nightlife is making a huge comeback.

Doors will open at 12pm–10.30pm, where all-dayers can take advantage of Canada Water station’s tube a short walk away (bonus!).

See you on the dance floor?
