New temporary cultural destination, Printworks London announce details for their debut music series, celebrating the best electronic music from across the globe with a series of shows from midday to 10.30pm each Saturday, at the venue’s stunning industrial Press Halls.
Housing the giant printing presses that once churned out the Metro and Evening Standard newspapers, the Press Halls are a fully soundproofed space, designed to contain the clatter of what was once Western Europe’s largest print facility, keeping crowds on both sides of the wall happy.
Promising fully bespoke production, LWE and Broadwick Live will make the most of the Press Hall’s rare potential, adding fully-fitted L’Acoustic and SB28 loudspeakers, designing an automated lighting truss that makes the most of the vast heights and installing over 100 lasers and spotlights to illuminate the dramatic industrial features.
Keen to become an integrated part of the local community, Printworks plan to minimise the impact on residents; in addition to the soundproofed main room, and daytime running hours, organisers plan to direct customers to and from nearby stations through signposted and steward-manned routes that take customers via a non-residential areas. Local SE16 residents will also benefit from 50 free balloted tickets to all ticketed events and a space within the venue dedicated entirely to community use.
Implementing a community ethos across all aspects of the project, Printworks’ debut series will feature leading brands from the international circuit to deliver an exceptional and dynamic programme of events. Foremost amongst the partner brands are acclaimed promoters The Hydra, an integral part of London’s underground music culture, responsible for some of the city’s most exciting shows in recent years.
