The Hydra unveils August Bank Holiday weekender at Printworks London
The Hydra has unveiled the line-up for the August Bank Holiday weekender at Printworks London.
Set across three days - August 23 to 25 - the weekend kicks off with a London festival exclusive from Nils Frahm accompanied by Stuart Bailes’ visuals and a set from by ambient artist Tom Middleton with an interpretation of album '76:14'.
It's a techno takeover for 11 hours in the Press Halls on Saturday, with Ben Klock, Model 500, Jeff Mills, Helena Hauff (pictured), Terrence Dixon and Mor Elian all on the bill. The Dark Room makes way for Move D, Willow, Damiano von Erckert and DEBONAIR.
Live performances from Larry Heard and DāM-FunK set a transatlantic premise for Sunday, with Heard providing another London exclusive for the weekend. The Hydra co-founder Dolan Bergin also takes to the decks, with other sets locked in from Carl Craig, Moodymann and Theo Parrish. Sunday’s Dark Room sees jazz, soul and hip hop with sets from Lefto, Joe Armon-Jones, Ash Lauryn and Sofie, topped off by California-based Ras G performing live.
For The Hydra, production standards, impeccable sound and innovative visuals are at the core, with the duo welcoming industry leaders to set the standard.
Rebel Overlay is a ground-breaking visual mapping artist who's worked with Skepta in the past and he'll supply visuals across the weekend. For lighting, Tiefton and Natalie Heckl will lead, adding ambience and atmosphere to the weekend.
Tickets for the Bank Holiday weekender are available from June 13.
