# adding location field on biblatex entry

I'm trying to include in a bibliography with biblatex the location field in an inproceedings entry. A minimal working example is the following

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[sorting=ynt,bibstyle=authoryear-comp,defernumbers=true,maxnames=300,firstinits=true,uniquename=init,backend=biber,dashed=false,arxiv=abs]{biblatex}
\DeclareFieldFormat{url}{\url{#1}}
\DeclareFieldFormat[article]{pages}{#1}
\DeclareFieldFormat[inproceedings]{pages}{\lowercase{pp.}#1}
\DeclareFieldFormat[incollection]{pages}{\lowercase{pp.}#1}
\DeclareFieldFormat[article]{volume}{\textbf{#1}}
\DeclareFieldFormat[article]{number}{(#1)}
\DeclareFieldFormat[inproceedings]{title}{#1}
\DeclareFieldFormat{shorthandwidth}{#1}
\DeclareNameAlias{sortname}{first-last}

\DeclareBibliographyDriver{inproceedings}{%
\usebibmacro{bibindex}%
\usebibmacro{begentry}%
\usebibmacro{author/editor}%
\setunit{\labelnamepunct}\nopunct
\usebibmacro{title}
\newunit\newblock
\usebibmacro{byauthor}%
\newunit\newblock
\usebibmacro{byeditor+others}%
\newunit\newblock
\usebibmacro{in:}%
\printfield{booktitle}%
\setunit{\bibpagespunct}%
\printfield{pages}
\newunit\newblock
\printfield{issn}%
\newunit\newblock
\printfield{location}%
\newunit\newblock
\usebibmacro{pageref}%
\usebibmacro{finentry}}

\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}
@inproceedings{trial,
location = {Venice, Italy},
author = {Doe, J and Mouse, M},
booktitle = {Proceedings of my conference},
pages = {133--158},
title = {A possible title},
year = {2001}
}
\end{filecontents}

\begin{document}
\nocite{*}
\printbibliography
\end{document}


Unfortunately I'm not able to make the location entry to appear in the bibliography. Any clue?

@Dan The question you link is about BibTeX, not biblatex – egreg Jul 2 '13 at 13:04
although the answer is for bibtex, in this case it is also valid for biblatex. In biblatex location and address are the same and venue is used to refer to the location of the event. – ArTourter Jul 2 '13 at 13:57
Sorry but as far as I understood it does not answer my question the linked answer. BTW I've also tried to use venue in the bibtex entry and using \printfield{venue} but it does not work. – Nicola Vianello Jul 2 '13 at 14:11

The location field is of the literal list data type. Since all formatting directives are specific to the data type, replace \printfield{location} with \printlist{location}.
