London’s newest venue, Drumsheds officially opened this weekend.
The 15,000-capacity club in Meridian Water opened its doors for the first time on Saturday (October 7) with an event from the glamorous La Discothèque as its colourful debut.
Transforming Tottenham’s former IKEA into a raucous club venue, the 608,000-square-foot space is more than double the size of the now-closed Printworks.
With creative direction from United Visual Artists, the warehouse has a mixture of high-quality lighting and visuals as well as its original lift shafts, loading bays, sprawling floors and machinery.
For its opening, La Discothèque had its own orchestra play a symphony of disco hits along with sets throughout the day event from the likes of Kenny Dope, Gilles Peterson, Derrick Carter b2b DJ Sneak, Melé, Afrodeutsche, Norman Jay MBE, Anish Kumar and many others.
