Ice Cream Factory Summer Festival opens for an epic 2018 season

Cue the return of the Ice Cream Factory this summer, now bigger and better than ever.

For those who can’t get enough of Perth’s pop-up venue, the Ice Cream Factory Summer Festival should definitely be at the top of your list. Since premiering last year, the outdoor entertainment venue has gained a reputation for hosting fully packed nights that have attracted thousands.

Now, the end-of-year-season promises no different with all-new activations and attractions. Welcoming you in with a classic Bar Pop style orchard, this year’s Ice Cream Factory haven offers 7 stages, 12 bars, sun lounges, the stomach-turning Dream Swinger ride a massive silent disco and VIP rooftop decks to catch the sunset while you sip on a bevvie. It’s scream-worthy in the best possible way.


  • Brand new Factory Main Stage in the warehouse 

  • The Ice Cream Tower outdoor DJ Deck 

  • The Corona Beach Island Stage with sand dance floor

  • The Igloo Stage 

  • Pimm's Pergola stage 

  • Jack Rabbit Slim's Silent Disco


  • Remote control boat racing at the Riviera

  • Single Serve Ping Pong arena 

  • Instagram-worthy installations

  • Garden games with giant jenga, connect 4, and table tennis 


On top of that, an incredible national and international line-up has been announced with the likes of Broods and Hermitude set to shake up Perth. Despite that, you won’t be short on places to either relax or go all out in this pop-up city oasis.

The Ice Cream Factory kicks off tonight with multiple dates running until the New Year. If you’re planning on keeping cool this summer, this is the place to be.
