DRUMSHEDS, the new 15,000-capacity venue opening in London, has announced the first headliners and hosts for its debut AW23 season.

Launching on 7th October, DRUMSHEDS will welcome a host of international electronic names across its first 12 parties, which will run each Saturday in the 608,000 square-foot space.

The inaugural party will be hosted by disco crew La Discothèque, with appearances from Derrick Carter, Hercules & Love Affair, Norman Jay MBE and SNO, alongside iconic singers Evelyn 'Champagne' King and Jocelyn Brown. Returning to their North London roots to headline the following Saturday (14th October) are English duo Gorgon City, with peers including Armand Van Helden, Oden & Fatzo, and more.

Bugged Out! will take over DRUMSHEDS on the 21st October with a bill boasting exclusive London 2023 live shows from both Hot Chip and Orbital, alongside the likes of Basement Jaxx, DJ Paulette, Erol Alkan, and more. Elrow are also getting in on the action for London’s largest halloween outing this year, Elrow Horroween on 28th October, followed shortly by Welsh house veteran, Jamie Jones who will bring his Paradise brand to DRUMSHEDS on 18th November.

For those in search of the freshest sounds, the pioneering Piano People will host the world's biggest Amapiano festival on 19th November, headlined by Major League DJz. The following weekend (25th November), Camelphat – who released a new single with London Grammar this week – will return with an extended pool of affiliates to be announced.

Elsewhere, long-standing Broadwick affiliate, Charlotte De Witte, is primed to bring her KNTXT brand to DRUMSHEDS on 9th December, while Mas Tiempo will host Skepta and Jammer for a huge closing party on 16th December to round out the opening season.

The venue, housed in a former Ikea store in Tottenham programmed by Broadwick Live (the team behind Printworks, Beams, Field Day), will be the biggest space of its kind in London.

Ajay Jayaram, Broadwick Live’s Director of Music, said: “DRUMSHEDS as a cultural project is about creativity and impact at scale. Some of music’s biggest artists, labels and brands are working with us to curate shows that are unparalleled in terms of size and production in the capital, offering our guests an experience unlike anything before.”

The venue will precede the previous DRUMSHEDS space, which closed permanently last January after a closing event hosted by The Hydra, who will return to the new DRUMSHEDS on 8th December.
