Following on from a huge music lineup announcement, Perth’s Ice Cream Factory Summer Festivalhas revealed a list of experiences and activities so expansive it includes a 50-metre zip-line to allow you to take it all in!

Running from December 13 to New Years Day, the three week long summer festival will feature a sensational array of activations including 11 themed, hidden and exclusive bars along with, a special appearance from Australia’s best known pirate and the return of some trusty ICF favourites such as the much loved silent disco.

Of all the exciting additions for 2019, it will be hardest to miss the new 11-metre high Red Bull ZIPLINE which will soar directly over the open air dance floor, giving you the chance to enjoy the scenic views of Perth’s best pop-up playground. To take to the skies and get the best view in the house, simply follow the giant staircase to the ORGANICS by Red Bull Cocktail Bar.

Once you whiz across the dance floor more than three floors up, the zipline will lead you to the Tune Tunnel, ICF’s hidden hideout for all you rave cave enthusiasts. Trust us, if you can find the entrance and get past the gatekeeper, you’ll never want to leave!

Along the way, you’ll catch a view of the iconic and beautifully lit Orchard Dome, the new European-inspired alfresco wine deck, the exclusive VIP viewing deck (Aperol Spritz anyone?) and the Lifesavers Cocktail Bar – a lush, colourful oasis serving up fresh cocktails.

Gordon’s Pink Gin will also bring their jaw-dropping PINK ROOM to the festival this year. Awash with rose-hues, this is THE GO-TO SPOT to snap the ultimate festival selfie.

For those looking to cement ALL the memories of this year’s festival, renowned tattoo artist Martyn Hester will be live tattooing at the Pirate Life Parlour, which will also feature a range of signature and limited edition brews.

Speaking of brews – craft beer favourite 4 Pines are joining in the fun this Ice Cream Factory Summer Festival season with a massive beer garden featuring their finest selection of drops on tap along with Brookvale Union’s famous ginger beer.

If cocktails and sunsets are more your vibe, you can make your way over to the Canadian Club Hotel and its scenic gazebos, to sip on a CC & Dry or two while taking a well-earned rest after all that dancing.

An off-beat, must-see addition to this year’s Ice Cream Factory Summer Festival is the Koyomi Izakaya: a bar-come-Japanese-dining experience serving up Shochu highballs and a sizzling array of street food from local favourites, Small Talk!

Not to mention, alcoholic kombucha has arrived, with the K.BOOCH Alcoholic Kombucha Cooffering a variety of refreshing, fruity flavours at the K.BOOCH Tipi. With its stunning stretch tent and luxe chill out area, there’s no doubt it’ll be a hot new favourite for 2019.

Bertie Cider will be serving up tins of their delicious cold pressed apple cider direct to the main dance floor, keep an eye out for the giant Bertie Can, that’s where you’ll find them!

For those who like things live and loud, inside the warehouse also sees the return of the largest of all 6 stages, The Factory Stage, complete with the full sound and lighting experience to provide the perfect accompaniment to your favourite headline acts, including LDRU, who is set to headline the festival’s huge Opening Night Party on December 13.
