It’s the second incarnation of Drumsheds, following the first Meridian Water venue that was open between 2019 – 2022

Printworks may be gone (for now at least) but Broadwick Live, the team behind the epic nightclub, as well as Beams and Manchester’s Depot Mayfield, is bringing us somewhere new to dance and this one is going to be mega. Drumsheds will be the group’s biggest venue yet, at 608,000 sq ft and 15,000 capacity spread across the former IKEA site in Meridian Water. There already has been a Drumsheds in the area, housed in a former gasworks facility behind the new site, which hosted Field Day and sets from the Skepta, Kano, Peggy Gou and Aphex Twin during its short life.

Drumsheds 2.0 will be on a completely different level, making it the most ambitious site yet from Broadwick Live. Just as at Printworks, many of the warehouse’s original features will remain, like the lift shafts and loading bays, with the hybrid space able to be reconfigured to suit multiple events. Music will be at the heart of the Drumsheds programme but the venue will also play host to a range of cultural happenings, including fashion shows, art performances, exhibitions, set builds and brand activations.

The first season of events has just been announced with the likes of Gorgon City; Elrow with a Halloween-themed special featuring Claptone, David Rodigan & Eats Everything; Worried About Henry presents Andy C; Más Tiempo presents Skepta and Jammer; The Hydra with Bicep presents Chroma A/V DJ, Daphni, Sherelle & Kelly Lee Owens; Charlotte De Witte; Jamie Jones presents Paradise with Hot Since 82 & Marco Carola; La Discothèque with Jocelyn Brown, Hercules & Love Affair & Derrick Carter; Jamie Jones; and BuggedOut! with Hot Chip, Basement Jaxx and Erol Alkan all passing through to host nights. The parties will all take place on Saturday nights, running from October to December, and you can expect epic production and lighting across each one.
