This Autumn will see the grand opening of a brand new rave space for London. Located in a warehouse which was formerly part of the Tate & Lyle factory complex, The Beams will open its doors on 1st October as a centre for new culture.
Brought to you Broadwick Live; the team behind renowned venues such as Printworks and The Drumsheds among others, the 55,000 sq foot will act as a testbed for culture in all of its forms. Their latest transformational project will give a spotlight to music, film production, brand events, activations and experiences.
The Beams is set to offer a new raving experience for London, set in a raw and industrial destination that will be drenched in natural light during the day and filled with plenty of production elements once the sun goes down. Located in the heart of East London, in the Royal Docks, and on the River Thames, the venue is easily accessible by the DLR via Pontoon Dock station.
Comprising of three separate rooms, the venue’s inaugural shows will see Broadwick partner with one of the capital’s leading promoters; LWE to co-promote 12 shows over 12 consecutive Saturdays from October 1st – December 17th. Details of these shows are still yet to be announced, but with both brands’ previous track records, you can expect a mix of the very best international and rising talent from across the electronic music spectrum.
Speaking about the upcoming programme, Ajay Jayaram, Director of Music, Broadwick Live Group, says:
“We’re excited to finally announce our inaugural music programme at The Beams, in collaboration with LWE.
The partnership of two of London’s foremost promoters and musical curators, feels truly significant as it is a reunion of the ambitious team who launched Printworks London.
Musically, we will lean into the partnership, programming an eclectic series of day to night events over twelve consecutive Saturdays – October to December. We’ll be featuring top tier names and emerging talent, across various sounds, styles and genres within the broad sphere of house, techno, disco and everything that lies in between. We look forward to introducing our audiences to this exceptional new industrial setting, full of character, situated in an untouched part of London…”
