Over the last year Highrise have been working to convert a local youth centre and boxing gym the Riverside Youth Project into a festival site.
.
Bristol desperately needed a new venue. Their solution was to carefully converted the boxing gym to be multifunctional. Youth Centre by day, rave by night.
.
The room is originally full of bunk beds that the cadets sleep in after they get back from trips.
.
First they welded wheels onto the middle bunks so they could roll out opening up the dance floor space.
.
Then they built a DJ table which is suspended only by chains from the concrete ceiling.
.
This allowed them to put our RC1 sound system into the bunks and crank the bass up without any feedback to the decks as many of our best selectors play wax.
.
It’s defiantly the most jokes DJ booth we have ever worked with. The DJ has to climb up a ladder and into the booth which has a 6ft3 height limit!!
.
We opened it for the first time at Halloween and it was mad!! We had people sat in the bunks up all the walls and wicked dance floor space in-between.
.
All our events help fund the boxing gym and help keep the youth centre open ??????
