Waterworks is a London day festival created to provide a platform for showcasing and celebrating the diversity and talent in London’s electronic music scene on an untouched site where industrial East London meets the beauty of nature.



Waterworks was founded with a belief that London’s music landscape is lacking a platform for supporting the lesser known artists that make up the UK’s diverse electronic scene. Whether that be up and coming talent or industry veterans, Waterworks pairs these artists with some of the most celebrated underground names, giving them a stage to express themselves and be recognised for their talent and contribution to the scene.



The curation of the electronic program focuses on the different flavours, strands and genres of dance music that have come to shape the musical landscape in the UK.


The Site

The festival is located in a beautiful secluded parkland area of East London, surrounded by industrial cues that make the backdrop totally unique. Unlike many other London locations we are remotely situated in relation to our nearest residential neighbours which will allow us to achieve unparalleled sound quality.

Please Note:


Waterworks, is on a green-field site. While there are some sheltered areas (some stalls and marquees), it is mainly an open-air event. Ground conditions are therefore weather dependent (if we experience extreme weather, the ground may become muddy), therefore mobility across the site may become compromised. We ask you to consider this before purchasing a ticket.


Induction Loops

There will be induction loops at the Main Accessibility Wristband Exchange.



Please note that strobe effects may be used at this event however, there will not be any specific announcements prior to their use.


Medical Services

We have an onsite Medical Tent with trained First Aiders. We also have an Information Area which can be used by our accessible ticket holders should they need a moment of calm.


Please note:


The disabled access facilities are for festival/event-goers with permanent disabilities – pregnant women and people with recent injuries such as broken legs do not qualify.
