DRUMSHEDS, a new 15,000-seat venue, will open in London in September by Broadwick Live

Drumsheds Broadwick Live Printworks

The cultural venue will be located in a sizable warehouse in North London's Meridian Water district and will feature a carefully planned schedule of live music, culture, and the arts. It will be operated by Broadwick Live (the organization behind Printworks, Beams, and Field Day).

The venue, which is scheduled to debut in the fall, will take the place of the previous DRUMSHEDS location, which shut down permanently in January following a final event organized by The Hydra and featuring b2b sets by Four Tet & Floating Points and Ben UFO & Joy Orbison.

DRUMSHEDS will be the largest venue of its sort in London, spanning 608,000 square feet and a number of industrial spaces, with the ability to be continuously reconfigured into fresh and cutting-edge spatial settings. As usual, Broadwick will leave the warehouse's characteristics and design undisturbed, allowing visitors to examine the structure's previous lift shafts, loading docks, and equipment.

The DRUMSHEDS program will draw influence from Printworks, which championed the idea of the daytime show for a safer and more accessible event experience and was ranked second in DJ Mag's Top 100 Clubs 2023. Broadwick intends to revive Printworks in 2026 after it closes for renovation along with the neighborhood.

On May 1, Bicep surprisingly appeared at the superclub's farewell celebration before it closes for good. Other performers were Peggy Gou, Dixon, Róisn Murphy, I. JORDAN & SHERELLE, Shy One, and more.

The DRUMSHEDS opening schedule will shortly be released. To stay informed about news in the interim, subscribe to the mailing list.

Simeon Aldred, director of strategy, says: “Broadwick’s mission has always been to build brands that deliver unrivalled, live experiences that create real impact. We are proud to announce DRUMSHEDS, set to be London’s most impactful cultural space of its kind, set across 608,000 sqft in North London. We want Drumsheds, like all the spaces we create, to be new centres of cultural gravity that provide the basis for human connection. A connection that people crave now more than ever.”
