London's newest "cultural destination" - the Printworks - has announced the lineup for its debut music series, with Daphni, Gold Panda, and Maya Jane Coles heading up the bill.

Daphni, Gold Panda, Maya Jane Coles, Kiasmos (DJ), Joy Orbison, DJ Koze, Ben Klock, The Martinez Brothers, Nina Kraviz, Seth Troxler, Melt, and the Motor City Drum Ensemble are just some of the big names confirmed for the series.

Adam Beyer, Alan Fitzpatrick, Bjarki, Butch, Chris Liebing, Dopplereffekt Live, Hot Since 82, Jeremy Underground, Julia Govor, Kim Ann Foxman, Loco Dice, Luke Vibert, Luciano, Maribou State (DJ), Mathias Kaden, Matthias Tanzmann, Max Cooper (Live), Mind Against, and William Djoko are also booked to perform.

The opening party takes place 4 February 2017 - although the official capacity was announced as 5000, this debut run will be substantially lower at 2500.

Printworks London is described as "a ground-breaking new multi-purpose, experimental venue" and is located in the former printing facility for the Metro and Evening Standard. There is "bespoke production", including L'Acoustic and SB28 loudspeakers and beaming array of lights - including over 100 lasers and spotlights.

"The Printworks is a venue unlike any other in the capital and I'm so excited about the launch of this innovative space," says London's new Night Czar Amy Lamé. "Thousands of Londoners will be able to enjoy experimental and captivating events here in the future and, thanks to the Night Tube, they won't have to worry about getting home from this part of the city. This is fabulous news for London's night time economy."

Although there are plans for gigs, all-dayers, and other sound-based shenanigans, music is the only thing on the menu - the venue's six different events spaces will feature food, film, arts, dance, fashion, "immersive theatre", festivals, and more. Apparently there are already plans for a mini jazz season, a classical music programme, markets, vintage fairs, food festivals, and car shows.

As well as ticketed events there will be facilities for community use, including rehearsal rooms.
