LIVE REVIEW: Example, Motez, Dirty South & Nina Las Vegas – Factory Summer Festival

As Factory Summer Festival charges towards the end of their 2020 Brisbane season, they saved a huge dance party for their official Boxing Day kick-ons. With British (and now Australian based) singer-songwriter Example headlining the night, they had EDM favourites Motez, Dirty South and Nina Las Vegas keeping the vibes high throughout the evening with c02, confetti, and fire cannons erupting across the stage. 

With punters ready to get the drinks flowing, the dance moves coming, and the good vibes shining, they really embraced the carnival and spacious set-up of the festival as the sun set across Brisbane with Instagram feeds highlighting it all. Nina Las Vegas came out strong onto the Factory stage with Miss Blanks even providing a special guest appearance. But as soon as the darkness fell during her set, the crowd were ready to get wild. With big energy coming through Motez’s remix of Northeast Party House’s ‘Shelf Life’, and Dirty South’s remix of The Temper Trap’s ‘Sweet Disposition’, it was obvious they were ready to go even harder with the headline spot approaching. 

With his DJ opening up the set to do a quick vibe check with the crowd, Example made his way onto the stage for the explosive opener ‘Natural Disaster’ with fire bursts literally heating everyone up. ‘Stay Awake’ and ‘What The Fuck Have We Started’ followed with a drum n bass remix encouraging everyone to dance hard. But Example reminded everyone throughout his set to take a step back and socially distance so the show could continue and that we were staying Covid-safe. And in between some songs his DJ would spin a few tracks to maintain the high energy momentum his set carried. 

“Now that we’ve got through the shit songs, it’s time to party Brisbane” he proclaimed to the crowd with ‘All Night’ and ‘We’ll Be Coming Back’ ignited some big singalong’s. Wrapping up his set with the mammoth hits ‘Kickstart’ and ‘Changed The Way You Kissed Me’ he had the crowd undeniably wanting more. With an hour show full of high energy, it was hard to walk away as all you wanted to do was keep dancing. But luckily for Brisbane, they have two more opportunities to get that euphoric serotonin with Factory Summer Festival’s Daft Punk Tribute show, and their New Year Eve party!
