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.
