It’s the second new venue in the space of a month following the announcement of the Workman’s Cellars.
Next Friday, (29th October), The Button Factory late-night club space is relaunching as Centre Point with a special guest appearance from George Fitzgerald to kick off proceedings. Centre Point weekends will be curated by the people behind Sense, Hidden Agenda, No Sleep Club and many more of the country’s top collectives as they team up to bring a space to dance in the capital.
Speaking in a press release the crew behind Centre Point says:
“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 2021 (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.”
