London club Colour Factory is opening a new 300-capacity outdoor area called Colour Garden this Friday, April 16.
The venue, previously known as Mick’s Garage, is located in the Queen’s Yard area of Hackney Wick. It’s set to be a live music venue, food court and multi-functional events space, with an indoor club area and outdoor terrace.
The outdoor terrace will host the Colour Garden programming ahead of the venue’s grand opening and indoor space being able to host events from June 21. It has been fitted with a Martin Audio soundsystem.
Every weekend from now through to June will see some of London’s best DJs play, including AQWEA, DEBONAIR, FYI Chris, OK Williams, Sicaria Sound, Andrew Ashong, Ikonika, Re:ni and Shannen SP.

Speaking to RA, director Nathanael Williams said: "We are the only large Black-owned music venue in East London. We are committed to representing and reflecting the diverse community of London, and so every single one of our in-house lineups will always incorporate at least one person of colour and will always be mixed gender."
On Facebook, Colour Factory wrote: “As we wind up to our grand opening in the summer, we’re launching a series of warm-up events in our new open-air garden. Every weekend from April to June, we invite some of London's most beloved to go long in our terrace booth; day into night.”
