Printworks London has shut its doors and postponed all remaining scheduled shows in its calendar due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Parties that are impacted include Major Toms presents Rudimental, Green Velvet presents La La Land, Unleash presents Solomun and Defected.
In a statement on its website, Printworks said: “The health, safety and wellbeing of our guests, staff and artists are of paramount importance to us at Printworks London. Until now, we have been following the UK Government’s advice in relation to the current COVID-19 outbreak. However, although the latest advice (as of Monday, 16 March) only ‘advises’ against mass gatherings, it is with much regret that we have decided to postpone the remaining music shows.
“We’re in the process of rescheduling the postponed shows to later in the year, and ask that you please bear with us – we are hoping to announce the new dates within the next seven days. Current tickets will be valid for all rescheduled dates, but we would also please ask that if you would like to request a refund, that you wait until we provide you with full information of the revised show date, before making that decision.
“While refunds will be available, we’d appreciate it if those who can afford to do so would hold on to their tickets and join us for the new dates. Our industry is in jeopardy and the support of our guests is important for the future of all, including venues, artists, promoters, label’s, suppliers and freelancers’ whose livelihoods rely on the support of our sector, many of which are going to be deeply affected.”
