The Invisible Wind Factory, Carlton Street, Liverpool – Visit Now

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.
