The late-night space located in the Button Factory opens its doors this weekend ahead of stream of heavy-hitting club nights.
Back in October of 2021, Centre Point launched as the latest revamped space in Dublin for clubbing. The restrictions meant the reopening was short-lived, but the space had three huge weekends that featured the likes of George Fitzgerald, Krystal Klear and more before closing again.
This weekend, they hit the ground running with a number of huge events scheduled for the next month.
Friday 4 February kicks of with local selector DART taking the reins, with France native Folamour heading to the capital the following night.
Curated by the people behind Sense, Hidden Agenda, No Sleep Club and many more of the country’s top collectives, Centre Point arrives own ethos, production values and collaborative team of visual artists, musicians and people with a love for electronic music and dancing
Speaking in a press release, Eoin Cregan says, “Clubbing is the social fabric of our society. Our city has been losing clubs, spaces to dance, meet, learn and escape. We have been starved of the unifying and euphoric experience of clubbing for the last 20 months…
It is incredibly important that we help uphold, celebrate and evolve the important role that electronic music and clubbing play in Irish art & culture. We have taken this time to re-imagine, refresh and invest in one of the city’s longest-serving music venues –The Button Factory – bringing its club experience into the year 2022 (and beyond) as Centre Point.
Centre Point is about creating a much needed new and innovative home for electronic music in the city. A space that will nurture a diverse and top-notch program of Irish and international artists. A space that will work with independent promoters, artists and creators who have a shared ethos and emphasis on music, design, and world-class audiovisual production, as well as an environmental and social vision.
We believe there is nothing more liberating than experiencing the unifying power of music, in a space where people of all backgrounds can enjoy themselves, free from judgement, in a fun-loving, responsible and respectful way.”
