Escape to Freight Island

A lively indoor event features a crowd of people sitting at tables, some engaged in conversation. A doughnut truck labeled KRUM Doughnuts is visible on the left. The venue is adorned with colorful lights and hanging decor, with a large clock displaying the time.

With capacity for 3000 people across the 5000 square metre space, Freight Island is always buzzing, and you'll always be able to walk in and find something that takes your fancy.

 Among the numerous food outlets you'll find something for every palate, including from the fantastic Lazy Tony’s Taqueria, Voodo Ray’s and Burgerism. To wash it down you can take a drink from the expansive Freight Island Bar, Taproom, Sports Bar, Camden Hells brewery or Casa Pomelo, a paloma and tequila cocktail bar.

There's a 70s New York-inspired roller disco, a hidden high-fi audio bar/karaoke venue called Queen Samantha’s and a retro arcade games corridor - what’s more, Escape to Freight Island  hosts a diverse programme of ticketed events with free festival-calibre entertainment 12 hours-a-day, festival takeovers and exclusive collaborations with the likes of Homoelectric, We Out Here festival, Festival N°6, Love International and other iconic musical curators.
