Printworks is set to return in full force this autumn, with over 35 shows taking place from 17th September all the way through to 1st January 2022. 18 months in the making, the AW21 season is set to be the venue’s most ambitious yet. A forward-thinking programme of events has been unveiled spanning from techno to D&B, house music and beyond.
Last week, the venue announced that a new room will be in action for the upcoming season. Named Inkwells, the space which previously held ink tanks supplying the Press Halls’ giant printing presses will now offer a striking stomping ground for ravers to enjoy alongside the cavernous main room.
Across the three month schedule will see a host of international heavyweights from their respective genres land in the capital. The opening weekend’s lineup from 17-19th September remains unannounced as part of the venue’s redacted concept. The following Thursday on 23rd September sees the first announced show with Oliver Heldens presenting Heldeep. He’ll be joined by Leftwing:Kody, Roger Sanchez and more.
The first weekender of October brings Soundcrash with Jon Hopkins, Modeselektor and Apparat, then the following day Adam Beyer, Len Faki, Rebuke and a special guest TBA perform for LWE’s Re:Generate.
Other shows in October include Haçienda Classical featuring David Morales on Friday 15th and Claptone presents The Masquerade on Friday 22nd with Heidi, Ferreck Dawn, Todd Terry and Martin Ikin.
Moving into November, Maceo Plex curates his Ellum Audio show on Saturday 6th with Adriatique, Stephan Bodzin, Raxon and Ellen Allien b2b Boddika. ABODE returns to Printworks the following day and Aurora on Thursday 11th with the lineups for both events still TBA.
D&B fans are in for a treat on Saturday 13th November as King of the Rollers present their Royal Rumble show with a heavy hitting lineup in support. Sonny Fodera will hold a label showcase for his imprint Solotoko on Friday 19th, and Amelie Lens brings her Exhale concept on Saturday 20th with I Hate Models, Chris Liebing, Sam Paganini and IMOGEN.
Rounding off the action-packed November shows include Fuse’s 13th Birthday on Sunday 21st with Enzo Siragusa, Rich NxT and Rossko. Sub Focus performs live on Friday 26th, and Tale Of Us present Afterlife on Saturday 27th.
The final month of the year sees no slowing down for Printworks as house legend MK is back in the Press Halls with his Area 10 party on Saturday 4th. Noisia perform their last ever London show on Friday 10th and Anjunadeep bring label favourites to the capital once again on Saturday 11th.
The final announced shows so far include The Chemical Brothers and Erol Alkan on Sunday 12th for Bugged Out!, Gorgon City presents Realm and From Our Minds with 9999999999 (Live), Richie Hawin, Clara Cuve and more.
