Iconic London music, arts and culture venue, Printworks, keeps the party going and announces its biggest season to date with over 35 shows across Autumn and Winter.
Ex-factory-turned-award-winning-dance-venue Printworks London is no doubt an essential component of the city’s vibrant cultural scene today, showcasing the very best in live and electronic music. Once home to the largest print factory in Western Europe, the preserved print presses and giant machines upkeep the venue’s signature industrial feel, making it one of the most exciting places to party in London today.

Having kept people dancing since 2017, now the venue announces its plans to open its doors and welcome back the community, revealing details for its highly anticipated Autumn-Winter season from 17th September 2021 to 1st January 2022. Refined and perfected from 18 months of pandemic planning, Printworks is delivering an experience unlike anything seen previously, with 35 events spanning techno, drum & bass, to classical and contemporary music. Todd Terry, Artwork, MNEK and The Chemical Brothers are just a fraction of the names gracing the line-up.
On top of the announcement Printworks London has revealed plans to open Inkwells, an architecturally impressive space at the venue’s heart, featuring low ceilings and a stripped-back industrial aesthetic, providing contrast to the infinite stretch of the main space.

Coming with a fresh perspective and new, forward-thinking production design across the entire venue, Printworks will kick off on the 17th, 18th, and 19th of September with Redacted, where line-ups will only be announced on the day and Printworks will operate a strict ‘no phones on the dancefloor policy’. The idea, Printworks explains, is to “focus firmly on the music for a pure celebration of club culture.”
Tickets, as well as the full line-up, are available on the website.
