Once known for being the largest printing facility in Western Europe for publications like the Metro and Evening Standard, these days Printworks is famed for being at the forefront of London’s daytime clubbing scene.

It’s a breathtaking sight from the minute you walk in; a far-reaching industrial warehouse expanse with much of the original machinery still illuminated. A revamp from printers into venue inspired the transformation of the now iconic and endlessly cavernous Press Halls, with far-reaching Kinesys lighting system that floods the dancefloor, and vast stacks (over 40 units to be precise) of D&B Audiotechnik speakers. In September they introduced a new 12-metre LED screen, which has allowed VJs to push new visual concepts alongside the main room acts. Plus, the bar which runs adjacent to the main room now doubles up as a huge venue for live acts (the drinks vendors switching sides to the main club room).

Then there’s the low-slung ceiling of the Dark Room, equipped with a Funktion-One soundsystem. Last year, they also introduced a third room — the Control Room — complete with cocktail bar, additional seating and a stage for intimate live gigs. Extended opening hours mean that the venue can now run until 2am as opposed to their initial 11pm curfew too. Over the past year, Printworks has hosted prestigious parties from The Hydra, Ben Klock’s Photon series, Circoloco, and one-off sell-out live shows from Bicep and Skepta.
