It's brought to you by Broadwick Venues, the team behind The Printworks
Broadwick Venues, who own and operate London's mega-venue The Printworks, are opening another one. Located in Enfield, right next to Tottenham Marshes, The Drumsheds will open its doors to the public for the first time on 7-8 June, when it hosts this year's Field Day festival.
When we say 'mega-venue', that's no exaggeration. The Drumsheds, which in a previous life was a gasworks, comprises four interconnected warehouses, giving it a total indoor capacity of 10,000, but there are also a whopping 10 acres of outdoor space to play with. The venue has been developed by Broadwick Venues in association with the Meridian Water regeneration programme and Enfield's local authorities, and is one result of a staggering £6bn's worth of investment. It will also be easily accessible, thanks to a new overground rail station, Meridian Water, which is just five minutes' walk from the venue itself.
As for the Field Day line-up, this year's festival stars Skepta, Bonobo, Modeselektor, The Black Madonna, Todd Terje, Denis Sulta, Seth Troxer and Erol Alkan, among others, and tickets start at £40. The venue's full events programme for the rest of the year is to be announced soon.
London night czar Amy Lamé said: "I’m delighted that The Drumsheds is the latest venue to open in our capital, and proud that it shows Enfield’s commitment to delivering the Mayor’s 24-hour vision for London. London has the most diverse night-time culture in the world and this innovative new event space, at the heart of a major regeneration project, will be a great addition to our wide range of entertainment venues.”
