A new club is opening in East London

A new club is opening in London's Bethnal Green, with a launch party on the 29th July.

289 is a 2400 sqft, 220-capacity venue snuggled within a victorian railway arch and has already hosted the likes of Lorraine James, ShyGirl, Jessy Lanza & Ariwo.

Across the last week of July, the East London space will host a series of launch parties with live shows from Qendresa, Maxwell Sterling and RADA - as well as DJ sets from OK Williams and Silvia Kastel.

289 have said: "Our aim is to reflect the true diversity of the UK’s music scene by creating an environment where established promoters take musical risks and new promotors have a space to cultivate ideas and grow."

"We are also in the process of setting up a community programme which will help young creatives from marginalised backgrounds to develop multidisciplinary art projects to help launch their careers."
