North London’s newest venue combines four giant, interlinked, warehouses with capacities of up to 10,000 inside as well as 10 acres of outdoor space.

The Drumsheds is set in Meridian Water, next to Tottenham Marshes, and is easily accessible from across London. 

The site was a former gasworks between the 1930s and 1970s and has been unused since then.

It will now be a multi-purpose event space suitable for large scale indoor music and cultural events. The outdoor space is big enough to host large music festivals.

Its first event will be Field Day on 7-8 June, headlined by Skepta, Jorja Smith and Diplo. It will take place over two days, using the warehouses and outdoor spaces.
