LWE and Broadwick Live announce new London venue The Beams
LWE and Broadwick Live, London’s top electronic promoters, the teams behind Printworks and Tobacco Dock reunite to launch the inaugural music program at London’s newest venue, The Beams, after partnering for the huge sell-out success of Printworks London’s.
The Beams is situated across indoor and outdoor spaces and is housed in a warehouse that was once a part of the Tate & Lyle factory complex. It will serve as a testing ground for culture in all of its forms.
Broadwick Live and LWE, say the venue is 55,000 sq ft and can accommodate up to three rooms. They plan to co-promote 12 shows over 12 consecutive Saturdays beginning on 1st October and continuing through to 17th December.
“We’re excited to finally announce our inaugural music programme at The Beams, in collaboration with LWE.
The partnership of two of London’s foremost promoters and musical curators, feels truly significant as it is a reunion of the ambitious team who launched Printworks London.
Musically, we will lean into the partnership, programming an eclectic series of day to night events over twelve consecutive Saturdays – October to December. We’ll be featuring top tier names and emerging talent, across various sounds, styles and genres within the broad sphere of house, techno, disco and everything that lies in between. We look forward to introducing our audiences to this exceptional new industrial setting, full of character, situated in an untouched part of London…”Ajay Jayaram, Director of Music, Broadwick Live Group
The Beams will be a different venue for London, a raw and industrial destination that will be drenched in natural light during the day and filled with plenty of production elements once the sun goes down. Located in the heart of East London, in the Royal Docks, and on the River Thames, the venue is easily accessible by the DLR via Pontoon Dock station.
“It’s exciting to be teaming up with the team at Broadwick Live once again for the launch of The Beams’ music programme, and expand on our journey at Printworks London. We both have a strong history in dance events so it feels natural to partner at this brand new venue that will be unlike anything else the capital has to offer.
LWE originated from one-off warehouse events so we are well aware of how to use the raw warehouse aesthetic and build a programme of events that compliment their surroundings. We are creating something distinct and can’t wait to show you what we have in store.”Paul Jack and Will Harold, Co-founders of LWE
As with Printworks and other venues in the Broadwick Live portfolio, The Beams will operate under a hybrid multi-use model. During the week it will provide versatile space for modern industrial usages such as set builds, film and art production, photo shoots, brand events, exhibitions and fashion shows. Guests will be welcomed at the weekend for the music series and cultural events when the space wouldn’t otherwise be in use.
The Beams, which is currently going through the planning process, is the result of Broadwick Live’s close collaboration with Newham Council, The Royal Docks & Projekt working to ensure The Beams delivers social value, economic and cultural impact.
The shows will be announced on 5 July, followed by tickets going on sale on 7th July…Watch this space!
