Club cloakrooms may be filling up with cosy clobber, but Printworks is looking into the future. With spring in its sights, the mega venue has announced the first acts of its SS20 season. A Printworks line-up drop is always exciting news: in just a few short years, the cavernous Canada Water club has become one of the definitive destinations in London for anyone after a dance.
It's no surprise, then, that the former newspaper factory has scooped some headline names. It’s kicking off a whole month before spring officially starts, on February 1, with a party featuring Maribou State, Quantic, DJ Seinfeld, Lil Silva and Donna Leake, a line-up as eclectic as it is electric. This basis of savvily selected selectors sets a theme throughout the season. Take February 21, for example; you've got legendary minimal house and YouTube algorithm faves DJ Koze and Matthew Herbert, but also DJ and singer-songwriter Nabihah Iqbal. Basically the fresh-off-the-press hot take here is that Printwork's SS20 line-up is big news. Just maybe hold off the spring looks until a few months in, yeah?
