A group of professionals in the music and events industry has launched E1, a new late-night venue set to reawaken the city’s live electronic music scene. Their names have not been disclosed, and details about the venture are minimal.

The collective is currently transforming a former factory into the new music space. Access understands that the venue owners have worked with the country’s leading promoters and production houses. “The bookers are behind  some of London’s biggest events over the last decade and the management team comes with experience from the capital’s best alternative venues,” read a statement.

An experienced team will curate a wide-range of live music, aiming to attract the best established and emerging talent in electronic music from around the world.

The creators are working with acoustic consultancy and  audio specialists Sound Services Ltd, to install a bespoke, integrated sound system “to rival any in the capital”.

The new E1 venue is said to have high-tech features including the Funktion-One sound system, and air conditioning.

E1 London will open its doors on New Year’s Eve with a 27-hour party.
