Kevin Parker, the Perth-raised producer and multi-instrumentalist best known as being the frontman of Tame Impala, will be DJing at summer pop-up festival, Ice Cream Factory.
While Parker will be playing Ice Cream Factory’s main stage, members of POND – his psych-rock side-project that, on occasion, featured musicians from the extended Tame Impala family – will be playing at other stages throughout the venue.
The event will be one of the few chances to catch the prolific musician DJ in his home city. Earlier this year, Parker played at a fund-raiser protesting the Roe 8 road project through Beliar Wetlands. His sprawling CV includes, among other things, playing with Mark Ronson at Glastonbury and producing the debut album of WA group, Koi Child.
The announcement follows last Friday’s festival opening party featuring Nina Las Vegas. Running weekends until New Year’s Day and named after the former Peters Ice Cream factory that used to reside on this corner of Northbridge, Ice Cream Factory is a pop-up micro-festival featuring local venues such as The Dominion League and Mechanics Institute. Guests have numerous bars and food options inside the festival to choose from.
Ice Cream Factory is on the corner of Roe and Lake Streets, Northbridge and operates weekends in December. The venue opens from 4.30pm on Fridays with free entry before 8pm. Entry is $10 after.
