A new outdoor venue called Dockyards is opening in London.
Located in East London’s Royal Docks, the venue is opening with a launch event from September 3rd-4th hosted by Defected. After that, Above & Beyond are bringing their renowned Group Therapy Weekender from September 10th-11th. The exact lineup for each gathering has yet to be announced.
Events will taking place year round at the venue, pushing music and other cultural lanes. Covering 400,000 sqare feet, Dockyards also provides room for film productions or brand presentations.
The venue is a venture of Broadwick Live, the minds behind Manchester’s Depot Mayfield plus famous London clubs Printworks and The Drumsheds. Due to COVID-19, the latter closed indefinitely at the beginning of 2022.
On this new project, Broadwick Live Group Managing Director Bradley Thompson said in a statement, “We’re really excited to open Dockyards, creating a new center of cultural gravity for London in the heart of The Royal Docks. Dockyards will shape the area through cultural and commercial innovation by bringing a year-round program of events and activities in partnership with the world’s best. As a Broadwick Live venue, visitors and artists are assured of a world-class experience, while we also deliver meaningful impact for the area and local communities.”
