FROM May 2021, Liverpool’s Invisible Wind Factory are debuting their brand-new concept – the Rollerdrome.
The venue is being transformed into an immersive production and a unique roller-skating experience which opens on Saturday May 22nd, with skaters of all abilities welcome, from beginners to advanced across a range of classes.
The first season’s theme is an interplanetary disco with mirrored geometry, laser grids and a giant floating spaceship, creating an other-worldly experiential adventure in typical IWF style. A series of events with Liverpool Disco Festival’s United Skates are already confirmed.
Throughout 2021 the IWF team will be exploring ways to combine exercise, sport and well-being with immersive audio-visual production, music and art – and the Rollerdrome is the first stage.
Some of the new additions to Invisible Wind Factory include a permanent wooden dance floor and a range of skating gear to hire. There will be street food and a cafe and a bar service with cocktails, soft drinks and more. IWF’s Rollerdrome will be the only roller-skating facility in the city, offering fitness classes and skating events each week, collaborating with a host of skaters, promoters and artists.
One of the headline collaborations is with Liverpool Disco Festival, who will host a range of events featuring international DJs and live acts under their own banner, ‘United Skates’, every Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
Invisible Wind Factory say: “We’ve taken this opportunity to link fitness and sport activities with an immersive audio-visual experience, and we’re really excited about turning fitness on its head to create something genuinely experimental and unseen before. We will continue to host world-class live music and club nights, working with local and national promoters but with more on offer during the daytimes. After a year or more away, we want to offer people the ultimate dance floor to return to.”
