Ice Cream Factory reopens this Saturday!

WA Creatives come together to bring you two months of killer parties

New Year’s Eve was set to be WA’s return to a new normal, a celebration for tens of thousands who have been patient, abiding and safe. The announcement of new restrictions on 23 December followed by an extension until 4 January rocked the industry and washed away millions of dollars that had already been invested.

Organisations such as Bar Pop [Ice Cream Factory, Factory Summer, Froth Town, SNACK], Middle Ground [Pineapple Club, Banana Social, Block Party, Stripes and Primary], Habitat and Lab Six wore the brunt of the December announcement, however with this, there has been something incredible that has risen from the ashes; a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ collaboration between WA’s largest event promoters.

As of 6am, 4 January, dancing, music festivals, major events and standing consumption can resume. Ice Cream Factory Summer Festival will reopen its gates from January 8.

Returning bigger and better, the series will introduce live music back into the iconic corner of Northbridge with names such as The Veronicas, Broods, Electric Fields, Vera Blue, Jarryd James, Northeast Party House, Example, Young Franco, Hermitude and Masked Wolf.

The impact of cancellations on the events industry, and the other industries intertwined with theirs, is far, wide, and deep but summer isn’t over, and the fun doesn’t have to be either. Although conditions of entry may have a couple more steps, with the introduction of vaccine passports and mandatory masks – Chris advises it’s a small amount of extra work for a greater reward.

Get behind WA’s most prestigious promoters at the ‘Home of Summer’.
