The makers of iconic London nightclub Printworks have unveiled the line-up for their new warehouse venue Drumsheds, which includes the likes of Skepta, Bicep and CamelPhat. 

Promising to be London’s “most impactful cultural centre of its kind,” Drumsheds will begin its first ever Autumn-Winter season in October, with 15,000 people filling its rooms every weekend until 16 December.

The immersive event venue is programmed by Broadwick Live, the company behind Printworks, Depot Mayfield and Field Day. Broadwick’s iconic music venue Printworks closed earlier this year after the former printing press it was housed in was developed. The site was a printing factory for 24 years, aiding publications such as The Evening Standard and The Daily Mail. While hosting Printworks for six years, Surrey Quays' multi-purpose space became London’s hub for electronic music, creative expression and dazzling visuals. 

Now, in its new venture, Broadwick Live wants to ensure that the magic of Printworks is not lost but reimagined within a new home. And instead of an old printing press, Drumsheds is housed in the old Ikea in Tottenham - making it one of the biggest nightclubs in the country.

Based in Meridian Water, in north London, Broadwick promises that Drumsheds will become a “hybrid home for creativity in London,” utilising visuals, dance performances and lighting to ensure that the audience’s experience is at the core of the music venue’s ethos.

The space itself is multi-roomed and stretches across multiple floors, aiming to “break free from the constraints of traditional spaces with a blank canvas design and state-of-the-art infrastructure.”  

Who will be performing? 

Music lovers can anticipate an array of big names in attendance that span across genres including, garage, house and grime. Hosting acts such as, Worried About Henry, Skepta, Bicep and CamelPhat, the 12-show season offers a stellar showcase that is sure to leave mourners of Printworks re-energised.
