Full details of exactly who's playing when will be announced next week

London's new megavenue The Printworks has announced who's going to be playing there in the first few months after opening, and it's a list to make any lover of underground electronic music's mouth water.

Though details of exactly who's playing when won't be announced till 7 December - with tickets then going on sale the following day - the list of names set to appear in February, March and April includes (deep breath): Adam Beyer, Alan Fitzpatrick, Ben Klock, Chris Liebing, Dopplereffekt (live), Gold Panda, Hot Since 82, Jeremy Underground, Joy Orbison, DJ Koze, Loco Dice, Luciano, Luke Vibert, Maribou State, Martinez Brothers, Matthias Tanzmann, Maya Jane Coles, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Nina Kraviz and Seth Troxler.

And those are just the highlights! With more names still to be announced, Printworks looks set to become an important destination on the capital's nighttime itinerary... or rather, daytime itinerary! Because this first series of events on the venue's calendar - dubbed Electronic Music Series 001, and brought to you in association with (variously) The Hydra, Klockworks, Melt and Knee Deep In Sound - are all daytime affairs, beginning at noon on Saturday and ending at 10.30pm.

It's one of a number of measures that Printworks is taking to ensure minimum disruption to, and hence a better relationship with, local residents. Others include stewarded routes between the venue and local Underground stations (to keep club-goers safe while steering them away from residential streets), an allocation of 50 free tickets for locals for every event... and, of course, the fact that the venue is already impressively soundproofed, a throwback to the days when it used to house gigantic printing presses.
