PRINTWORKS ANNOUNCES A PHENOMENAL AUTUMN/WINTER SEASON WITH OVER 25 EVENTS, SHOWCASING THE VERY BEST ELECTRONIC AND LIVE ARTISTS
Underlining its credentials as one of Europe’s most talked about cultural destinations, Printworks London has announced a monumental Autumn/Winter season featuring some of the most groundbreaking and exciting talent today. Printworks will host more than 25 mind-blowing events, welcoming the likes of The Black Madonna, Theo Parrish, Bugzy Malone, Bicep, Nina Kraviz, Chromeo and Deadmau5 to the awe-inspiring venue, with even more nights and acts to be announced.
Printworks opened its 3000 capacity live music space earlier this year to compliment the already iconic, 4000 capacity Press Halls, famous for its electronic club shows. The Autumn/Winter Season is set to showcase boundary-pushing live acts as well as key electronic tastemakers. Dedicated to delivering the very best lineups in the UK, Printworks builds upon its short yet already game-changing history with its most ambitious programming to date, cementing its reputation as an unparalleled destination for music enthusiasts.
Gathering the most audacious emerging acts and legendary music mavericks, from techno legend Sven Väth to Detroit house pioneer Moodymann, world-renowned party and label Tale Of Us, Ellum label head Maceo Plex and Chicago superstar The Black Madonna, Printworks’ Autumn/Winter programming is unchallenged within the UK.
Manchester’s hottest grime export and self-proclaimed ‘King Of The North’ Bugzy Malone continues to emphasise Printworks’ place as a key live music showcase for grime, whilst Norwegian disco sensation Todd Terje, renowned party starters Chromeo and Mixmag’s DJ of the Year Nina Kraviz headline stupendous nights of the very best electronic music.
EDM titan Deadmau5, beat-morphing duo Mount Kimbie, dance music’s breakthrough act of the year Bicep, prodigal producer SG Lewis and Detroit’s techno pioneer Jeff Mills also lead huge events at the Canada Water venue.
The Hydra will again fulfil a key role in the upcoming season, having been a intrinsic part of its development since Printworks’ inception in early 2017. Sharing the same outlook with regard to values and vision, The Hydra forms an integral and ongoing part of the core team behind the venue and its ever-evolving programme.
Recognised for its outstanding sound and production, Printworks is committed to showcasing dynamic line-ups and performances with the very best technology to deliver an immersive and transformative experience, with significant improvements introduced this season.
One for the audiophiles – London’s esteemed Sound Services will install a state-of-the-art Funktion-One Resolution 4 System with F121 Bass into Dark Room, as well as introducing a high spec booth monitoring enabling them to take full control of the Printworks’ sound experience indefinitely.
Ensuring jaw-dropping visuals, DBN Audile will continue its exceptional work at the venue, overseeing the Press Hall’s highly-anticipated sound and lighting upgrades. In addition to this, Printworks is pleased to welcome back renowned visual designers, Rebel Overlay, and Aphex Twin’s lighting designer Dave Ross to showcase their extraordinary video and lighting installations across the entire season. In a The Hydra Presents exclusive, Robert Tiefton and Natalie Heckl will return exclusively to these shows, bringing with them their unique signature visual aesthetic.
Bradley Thompson, Managing Director of Broadwick Live and Venues, explains:
“Printworks Autumn/Winter season is our most eclectic and packed schedule to date, and in many ways is the culmination of everything that has come before. We are restless when it comes to constantly bettering the Printworks experience for everyone, and are absolutely committed to unparalleled line-ups, production and venue creativity.”
Printworks continues to push boundaries and deliver music lovers a truly exceptional immersive experience. The coming months will also see Printworks announce their spectacular line-ups for their New Years Eve and New Years Day events.
