London welcomed a new chapter in its clubbing history when Printworks opened last weekend.
The monstrous new multi-room, multi-purpose venue in Canada Water saw Seth Troxler b2b The Martinez Brothers b2b Loco Dice play Printworks’ 2,500-capacity main room at its inaugural party on Saturday 4th February, but it was the wider meaning of London’s new mega venue opening that was more exciting for the London club scene.
Last year was, at best, a mixed bag for London club culture. The capital lost yet more renowned venues in Dance Tunnel, Passing Clouds and Studio 338, and very nearly waved goodbye to the jewel in its crown, Fabric.
Some respite was offered through that institution being saved and small new ventures such as The Bridge, but on the whole, we’re hoping 2017 will be a decidedly more positive year. What better way to kick things off then, than the launch of brand new mega-venue, Printworks London?

Like the three, alternative, new venues below...
PRINTWORKS, LONDON (UK)
What a week for London culture! Following the news that Fabric will reopen, it has been announced that a new 5000-capacity venue will open in the capital early next year.
