Holden Factory hosting rave with Stephan Bodzin, Gerd Janson, Ben Klock

Stephan Bodzin

The ex-Holden Factory in Port Melbourne is home to a huge rave featuring Stephan Bodzin, Gerd Janson and Ben Klock among others.

Novel announced today that the titanic techno lineup are coming to the former industrial zone, which sits on the outskirts of the CBD and used to be the cornerstone of the Australian automotive industry.

They describe the former Holden (GMH) Factory as an endless open space situated in the skeleton of an historical and industrial powerhouse – the perfect setting for the hard austere techno of Klock and the industrial synth stylings of Bodzin. Throw in Janson’s smooth house to save your eardrums alongside Yarra and Marli and you’ve got a very enticing cocktail indeed.

The show will feature stage and lighting designed by Studio John Fish and Funktion One Sound. The organisers are saying you can expect a fully immersive experience with the same level of production as B3 & Let Them Eat Cake.

The lineup’s huge: Bodzin playing one of his famous live sets, Janson and Klock supported by Marli and Yarra.

It all kicks off on March 26, shortly after Pitch Festival’s supposed to go down, as Victoria becomes the techno mecca of the world for a few short weeks.
