Already known as the home of electronic music, Printworks has quite the reputation as one of not only London’s, but also one of Europe’s most iconic venues.
Printworks will always remain loyal to its electronic roots but, in a bid to expand upon its arts and culture programming, it’s also launching a 3000 capacity live music space, as an extension to its existing nightclub within the old Metro and Evening Standard printing facilities.
Opening on March 23rd, with a headline show from British art-rock band Django Django, the new venue already has a kick-ass line up of events. Dreamy, and frankly euphoric, Britain’s Got Talent winner Tokio Myers will take the stage on April 10th, followed by drum and bass legends Pendulum on April 14th. With these events getting things off to a particularly good start, the new gig space is set to become a major tour stop for live music artists.
Besides the expansion, Printworks are also working with YOUTH CLUB, who will be displaying hundreds of thousands of images of youth subcultures from the past four decades. Following the images from dark room to exhibition: some of these images will be accessible for the very first time. Both Printworks and YOUTH CLUB are working hard to establish the world’s first Museum of Youth Culture.
