Printworks final season: when is closing weekend, who is performing, can you get tickets

Printworks London’s Final Season will run through to the first weekend of May

Printworks London is preparing for its final shows before closing down.

The south London mecca of electronica music will be shutting at the start of May for a “number of years”. It first opened in 2017 in Surrey Quays and has hosted the hottest DJs in the capital for over five years.

The final season is in full swing, with more and more acts being announced. The Hydra will be taking over during the Easter weekend with five days of curated events.

Printworks London is closing in its current form due to Canada Water, the area it is based in, undergoing extensive regeneration. The project is expected to take years and the future of Printworks London has yet to be announced.

Here is all you need to know, including how to win tickets to an event of your choice:

When is the closing weekend?
