London is getting a brand new outdoor club this summer.
Ernie's Yard will open on June 25 in the site of a former scrapyard in Canning Town.
The multi-purpose venue will feature two event spaces, a food area and multiple bars.
The project has been masterminded by the people behind The Cause and Costa Del Tottenham and will welcome parties from crews such as Secretsundaze, Syzygy, Percolate, Art of Dark, Feelings Worldwide, Goodlife, Adonis, Warm Up and more.
The venue will be set across 12,000 square feet of land and will host 12-hour open air parties until 11pm.
At least one of Ernie's Yard's event spaces will feature stacked shipping containers to create a clubbing space that has a balcony overlooking the dancefloor.
The space has summer very much in mind but will be equipped with stretch tents and clear roofing to allow for the Great British weather and parties all year round.

It's also rumoured that a goat called Vladimir patrols the outskirts of the premises as well as that of the Russian steam bath next door.
Stuart Glen, co-founder of Ernie’s Yard said: “Back in 2019 we walked past a huge street food & drinks venue built from shipping containers and decided to have a pint. As we walked in, the bartender explained the lease was up on the site. I immediately thought this structure would be amazing for a party, maybe I can buy it and find some land to move it to. Two weeks later we’d agreed to buy it, put a deposit down and had three months to seal the deal on some land I was after. Long story short. Two sites fell through and we’ve been juggling where to put nineteen 40 foot shipping containers for two years. It’s been a sticky situation to say the least but somehow we’ve managed to pull in some favours, met an East End legend called Ernie and Bob's your fathers brother - ‘Ernie’s Yard’ was born - a killer new daytime space for London.”
