Friday 31 December 2021. HOSPITALITY takes over The Drumsheds, North London for a New Year’s Eve Spectacular. One of the UK’s most sought-after party crews bring you an unparalleled New Year’s Eve spectacular at The Drumsheds, with a special headliner just announced: Andy C, who will be playing alongside Tonn Piper . There will be over a dozen djs at this massive 10,000 capacity standing venue that is spread out over four colossal interlinked warehouses, that were previously abandoned gasworks. The masterminds behind the seminal label Hospital Records, the infamous Hospitality crew will take over the indoor warehouse spaces with their well-known selection of bass virtuosos, feel-good sounds and non-stop party atmosphere. The event runs from 7pm to 4am....with tickets at a very reasonable £25. Getting to DRUMSHEDS is a bit tricky as it is in the middle of nowhere... Tube & Train 7 minutes walk from Meridian Water Station (on a Greater Anglia route) 40 minutes walk from Tottenham Hale Station (underground and overground Zone 3 ) Free shuttle bus to Tottenham Hale Station after the event. By Taxi If you are arriving by taxi, use the designated drop-off and pick-up point located in Ikea. By Bus The 192 (Tottenham Hale ⇔ Enfield Town) and the 341 (Waterloo ⇔ Upper Edmonton) drop you a few minutes walk from the venue. DRUMSHEDS is the sister venue to PRINTWORKS in South East London...I went there 3 months ago... ----------------- A bit of a mad trek from West London...we were there 10pm to 4am. Most of the massive crowd of over 8000 are already in the venue. Sniffer dogs at the ticket entrance, and no doubt a few drugs were about tonight. Lots of frazzled looking people inside...most seem to be under the age of 30. It is like a mini festival...mud, puddles, hardcore on the floor, portable toilets, loads of security etc. A huge outdoor space between the ticket entrance and the inside dance areas. Two main dance areas used, with the djs playing 60 mins set each. I am not the biggest fan of drum n bass but there was a great party atmosphere. Most of the djs had massive lightshows to help with their performance. The front looked very packed at times, so hopefully this event does not be a covid super-spreader. Lots of fireworks going off in the nearby area 11pm to 1am, which was good to peek at. Got back indoors at silly o'clock but we had great fun up there in deepest North London. _____________
