London’s biggest raves are back and they’re more star-studded than ever. Printworks just revealed their Fall 2019 lineup and it’s a doozy! They’ll feature Amelie Lens, Don Diablo, Robert Hood, Peggy Gou and more. Over 200 EDM artists will play throughout September to January 2020 across three venues: Printworks, Magazine, and The Drumsheds. Most notably, the festival’s opening party will feature a lot of EDM girl power. On September 28, 2019, Amelie Lens, B. traits, Nastia, and more are all slated to perform. With this opener alone, they’re already upholding the latest initiative of ensuring most festivals will feature an equal number of female headliners to male artists. This year’s Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona started it months ago, and now, Printworks in London seems to follow in suit.
The weekend after that will feature the first back-to-back performance of the series. Hunee and Antal will play b2b each other to open October. Meanwhile, Body Hammer, Kettama, and more will keep the party going for the rest of the weekend. Out of all these headliners, Hunee is one of the more highly-anticipated. He enjoyed a ten-week residency in the British capital’s famous XOYO nightclub last year, which was more or less a success. DJ Antal, on the other hand, is also still reeling in the success of his Rush Hour label. Though this isn’t the first time both DJs are playing b2b each other. Their most recent joint performance was just last month at OFFSonar. After that, Peggy Gou will play her 2017 EP, “Gou Talk,” when she takes on the stage at Printworks on early November. And while the month will also feature HAAi, Gerd Janson, Sulta Selects, and more, Gou is undoubtedly the star of the weekend. In recent years, the South Korean-born music producer has been achieving success even outside of the EDM game. In fact, her friendship with fashion designer Virgil Abloh allowed her to DJ at one of his Off-White fashion shows and led her to open her own clothing label, ‘KIRIN‘.
Further into the month, Dusky will celebrate 25 years of ‘Bugged Out!‘. The label has been playing in Printworks for years now, and this coming November, they’ll celebrate a quarter of a century of success. DJs Erol Alkan and Modeselektor will also join Dusky for their anniversary event. Oliver Heldens and Crucast, on the other hand, will dominate the remaining weekend of the month. EDM duo Tale Of Us will close off November alongside Fango, Mathame, Recondite, and Denis Horvat. Michael Bibi and La Discothèque, among many others, will, in turn, keep the party going from December up until the closing New Year parties on January 2020. Printworks will run from September 28, 2019, to January 1, 2020. Tickets will go on sale on August 15, 2019. If you want to learn more details about the festival, click here.
