London is getting a new day festival, Waterworks.

Taking place in late September at Gunnersbury Park, Waterworks will host a number of big names in current electronic music, with DJ sets confirmed from Objekt, Ben UFO, Mala, Josey Rebelle, object blue, Call Super and Batu, among others. Karenn and Novelist have also both been enlisted to play live.

Waterworks had originally been set to take place at a new East London location last August, but was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic and will this year happen in West London instead. The new city festival is the brainchild of promoters behind events such as Love International and Percolate.

"After visiting multiple sites and what feels like hundreds of hours of research we finally discovered a remote location inside Gunnersbury Park," the team behind the festival said. "Enclosed by 360 degrees of foliage this semi-woodland area is overshadowed by infrastructure, juxtaposing nature and industry beautifully."

Waterworks will take place on September 25, 2021. Find more information here.
