One of the most famed and popular venues Printworks, in London, has announced its full program of shows for the Autumn and Winter calendar, following some previously announced shows such as Oliver HeldensHeldeep all-day party. This news also comes following the announcement that the iconic venue would be opening a new room within its building called Inkwells, located just underneath the Printworks main room and boasting a capacity of 5,000. With this, it seems a fitting time to announce the season of shows, and we’re exploring the lineups.

The next day is ‘To The Floor’ which is advertised as being for fans of Circoloco or Edible and following this is ‘Low End Theories’ for fans of RAMPlayaz, RTRN II JUNGLE or Metalheadz.For these Redacted shows, all tickets are sold out. Bringing the London leg of their UK tour to Printworks, Squid descends on the venue on the rescheduled date of 23 September, and the day after on Friday 24 September SG Lewis brings both a DJ set and a live set. Oliver Heldens rounds out the month of September with the previously announced Heldeep party with Topic, PBH & Jack and very special guest Roger Sanchez among the recently announced support lineup.
