Head Programmer at E1, Dolan Bergin, said: “Having been part of the team that first launched E1 as a venue, this project is close to my heart. While the Covid 19 restrictions have disrupted the live music industry, we took the opportunity to pause and deconstruct E1 so we can present a new approach to its music programs and communication.
“We’ve worked hard to create a blueprint for E1 that places diversity at its core, laying the foundation as we continue to develop as a vital platform for culture to support emerging London talent. Dance music, by its nature, brings people together - something we’ve all missed sorely in the past year - and we can’t wait to welcome everyone back to share music with one another again!”
Pre-sale tickets to E1 available from 12noon on Tuesday, April 27th. General sale from 3pm. To register for presale tickets, please visie1ldn.co.
