Finally, some sweet news about the upcoming summer festival season! After three huge years in the heart of Northbridge, Ice Cream Factory have announced they will be back again this year.

Under the new banner of Factory Summer Festival, the experiential arts and music event will once again spring to life on Roe Street, Northbridge from Friday, December 11 to Thursday, December 31.

For the first time, the three week event will expand beyond Western Australia, hitting Brisbane on the same dates as Perth while Melbourne gets a taste of the action in March and April next year.

Just like its previous outings, Factory Summer Festival boasts an epic line up of some of Australia’s most popular live acts, including Illy, Peking Duk (DJ Set), The Presets, Nina Las Vegas, Ruel and more.

What So Not

Event Co-Director Chris Bausor said the event’s unique structure provides it with the opportunity to showcase a large variety of artistic talent in a safe and healthy manner. “Our event runs over three weeks, with capacity limited to a maximum of 4,000 per day, allowing for greater social distancing measures and a unique headline performance each night, which would not be possible in a more traditional format over a shorter period of time,” he said.

Factory Summer Festival organisers Bar Pop have acknowledged the incredible and critical importance of ensuring the health and safety of all attendees and the broader public, and are advising patrons the events will only proceed if there is complete confidence it is safe to do so.

Factory Summer Festival hits Ice Cream Factory at 92 Roe Street, Northbridge, from Friday, December 11 to Thursday, December 31. For more info and to buy tickets head to
