Sable Radio, an online radio station and creative platform based in Leeds, will be providing the soundtrack to our Saturday night. Enjoy back-to-back sets from a line-up of BIPOC (black, indigenous and people of colour) DJ’s who will be taking us on an audible journey of sound system culture. DJing live from FACT, the beats and sounds will respond to Black Obsidian Sound System’s (B.O.S.S) installation, currently on display at FACT for Liverpool Biennial 2021.

Book your free ticket to RSVP to the party and get a free drink upon arrival plus after hours access to all of our galleries.

For one last time, immerse yourself in three spectacular installations by Turner-prize nominated artist collective B.O.S.S, Zheng Bo and Liverpool-based artist Kiara Mohamed plus Baff Akoto’s augmented reality artwork, UP:RISE.
