The Invisible Wind Factory, Carlton Street, Liverpool – Visit Now
New Year’s Eve:
The creative team at Liverpool’s Invisible Wind Factory have joined forces with three of the city’s best promotors (Keep It Cryptic, Social Hours and Sisu) to curate an eclectic and diverse line-up for the launch of their latest event concept, Megalopolis.
The night is inspired by and in support of local, underground scenes in Liverpool and cities across the map, with some great musicians, selectors, performers, wordsmiths, culture nurturers and movement makers helping to get the party started. Performers include Aletha and Ellie Stokes, renowned for making noise on dance floors on all sorts of terrains, Cosmic Disco trio GALAXIANS, the electrifying DOGSHOW, and live electro groove outfit, MADMADMAD.
Invisible Wind Factory is a cavernous space from the good people behind the Kazimier Garden and Stockroom, itself one of the city’s favourite independent hangouts. IWF is a separate yet parallel artistic endeavor. “In essence, it’s an artist-driven space and production company,” reveals team member Liam Naughton, “combining disciplines in design, electronics, lighting and audio production, wood and metal construction, all woven together to create something unique.”
Set in an actual former factory on the historic docklands of the River Mersey, Invisible Wind Factory can be found roughly halfway between the suitably windswept Albert Dock tourist attraction and the largely undeveloped Huskisson Dock, highlighting an interesting conflict in Liverpool between the derelict and the gentrified.
Artists to have graced the stage of the IWF include Example, Peaches, Fat White Family, Ride and The Orielles, as well as club nights from the likes of Chibuku, 2manydjs, Fiesta Bombarda and ENRG. You can look forward to more industrial-scale spectacles at Invisible Wind Factory; the team are keen to keep future events “fairly mysterious”, so watch out for hints and updates over social media.
