Hackney Wick venue HWK launches open-air terrace ‘The Lot’


Summer 2020 saw HWK transform their parking lot into what fast became Hackney’s best outdoor pop-up venue. Returning this Spring under a new moniker – The Lot – the open-air terrace offers up weekly programming of the best underground DJs London and the UK has to offer, from talented upcoming producers to legendary selectors.

With a full week of programming planned for the opening week, The Lot begins the celebrations on Monday 12th April by welcoming DJs from one of London’s most distinguished, independent record stores, Phonica Records, marking the start of their DJ residency at the venue. As the week continues, expect to see an array of hotly tipped electronic music talents, including Raw Silk, Good Block, Kristy Harper and Laila Sakini.

Other highlights over the coming season include Percolate’s Queen’s Yard Summer Party, the inaugural Body Movements Festival, We Are The Sunset with Sean Johnston (ALFOS), party collective REVIVEHER, and DJ sets from Ray Mang, Donna Leake, Rory Phillips, Pleasure Cruise and many more.

The Lot now houses an all-new, custom built hi fidelity sound system from East London Audio, as well as a new roof structure covering more than half the outdoor space, along with an outdoor kitchen and BBQ, serving up delicious So Cal and Mexican inspired street food.

Encompassing all manner of genres, bringing together the very best promoters, brands, producers and DJs the UK has to offer, in one COVID compliant space – The Lot looks set to be the go-to destination for live music in the capital once again, throughout the spring and summer this year.
