Since opening in 2017, London’s Printworks has been the go-to venue for the most exciting, experimental and well-loved electronic music.

Over the past six years, the former newspaper printing factory has hosted the likes of Aphex Twin, Gorillaz and Dua Lipa’s record-breaking Studio 2054 live stream concert. It also featured in The Batman.


However last summer, operators Broadwick Live confirmed that the 6,000-capacity venue would close due to redevelopment of the wider Canada Water area. Earlier this month, a massive farewell party was thrown to celebrate the venue’s impact on London rave culture alongside a hint it would be reborn in 2026.

Until then, here are the best places to go to experience the greatest in electronic music.
