Bringing our city to your living room
Andrew Weatherall, Ben UFO and Shanti Celeste are among the acts set to play at a brand new electronic music festival in east London.
Waterworks, which arrives in Lee Valley on August 22, will be housed within a “detached” woodland site.
The line-up is set to “focus on some of the different flavours, strands and genres of dance music that have come to shape the rich musical heritage of London”, featuring a host of DJs from the city and farther afield.
Sherelle, Call Super, Eris Drew and Fauzia are among the other confirmed names, as are Mala, Nicolas Lutz, Object Blue, Craig Richards, Saoirse and Objekt.
The festival will be run by the founders of popular London club night Percolate and Croation festival Love International.
Organisers claim Waterworks’ relatively isolated location will help the festival “deliver the volume and sound pressure proper dance music deserves; we are confident of levels that are unparalleled in east London”.
