A 3,000-CAPACITY live music area is to launch at London’s Printworks, following the success of its electronic music space.
The venue, which will open on 23 March with a show by Django Django, is operated by multi-festival organiser Broadwick Live which already has a 5,000-capacity room for EDM events, which opened last year (see LIVE UK issue 203).
“It was always our ambition to create another live space,” MD of Broadwick LIVE Bradley Thompson tells LIVE UK.
“Due to the industrial nature of the Printworks space, from an atmospheric point of view, artistes get to play a unique venue.”
Thompson says the company will be working with a range of promoters at the former newspaper printing complex, including SJM Concerts, Live Nation Entertainment and Eat Your Own Ears, as well as promoting in-house.
“From working with lots of promoters we know venues can be hard to get at certain times of the year and there is space in the market for something of this size,” he adds.
Other events at the new space include concerts by Pendulum and Tokio Myers.
Broadwick Live is also behind festivals such as Field Day (30,000), Festival No 6 (15,000) and Truck (10,000).
