Five Years of Tobacco Dock: LWE reveal first phase of names for New Year’s Day Party

Marking five years of parties at London’s renowned Tobacco Dock, LWE have now revealed the first phase of names for their flagship New Year’s Day celebration – featuring an exclusive live set from Maceo Plex’s Maetrik moniker.

Pioneers of the now hugely popular day-party format, the LWE team have welcomed over 250 underground and commercial artist’s to Tobacco Dock in the last five years – including Seth Troxler, Fatboy Slim, Annie Mac, Bonobo, Adam Beyer to name few – as well as some of the biggest club brands in the industry such as elrow and ENTER. For their New Year’s Day anniversary party, LWE will raise the bar once again with a cutting edge selection of electronic acts set to takeover the Grade I listed warehouse, and will unveil a number of improvements to the venue which will be revealed soon.

Having appeared at the very first Tobacco Dock New Year’s Day Party in 2014, Maceo Plex is part of LWE’s extended family and has played numerous events in the last few years – namely hosting 2016’s ‘Dream Don’t Sleep’ event. This year, the date hosts the return of Maetrik Live after recently debuting new material after a five year hiatus. Maetrik is the darker moniker of Maceo Plex and with DJ sets a rarity, Maetrik Live will get its first ever outing at Tobacco Dock. With his productions and performances second to none, LWE are hugely excited to see the latest manifestation of Maetrik.

Further names confirmed to perform include Ukranian selector Nastia, plus techno innovators Axel Boman and Alan Fitzpatrick. Scottish native Lord of The Isles will make his Tobacco Dock debut, as well as one of Bulgaria’s leading live acts, KiNK, while LOLiFE founder Lauren Lo Sung rounds off the first line-up instalment. With Tobacco Dock’s anniversary milestone symbolic of a hugely successful few years for LWE, its cornerstone New Year’s Day party is set to be unmissable, with more information coming soon.
