The Perth events team behind wildly popular Fringe World venue Noodle Palace are taking over the old Myer Megamart building in Northbridge.

Kicking off on July 28 with a free gig starring Melbourne indie-rockers Northeast Party House, Noodle Palace: Warehouse Edition will see top national touring bands and DJs play across five weekends.

The pop-up venue with a capacity of about 1500 people will have an indoor warehouse stage and covered beer garden with street eats.

Other artists booked to play the winter Palace include producer KLP and One Day DJs, both from Sydney, with more acts to be announced shortly.

Some performances will be free with organisers aiming to cover costs with bar and food takings.

Art exhibitions will also be held in the former furniture and electrical retailer, which Coles Myer closed in 2005 and is currently owned by World Trade Center Perth.

JumpClimb director Paul Fletcher said the new Noodle Palace would be “more than a music venue”.

His company has previously activated the Piccadilly Cinema in the CBD, an empty house in Highgate and the Central TAFE rooftop in Northbridge for Fringe World performances.

Mr Fletcher said JumpClimb was hunting for a new venue when WTC Perth offered them use of the vacant building.

“It was a coincidence because we’d been looking at the space from the outside for a long time,” he said.

“We’ve always wanted to put something in that building, and the stars aligned.”

The site, which Mr Fletcher said was “perfectly located”, was previously home to a movie theatre, dance hall and multi-storey carpark.

The warehouse parties are as much about getting people out and about during the colder months as activating a disused building.

“There’s so many options in summer, so many pop-up venues and spaces, and this is literally the only pop-up space which is happening in winter,” Mr Fletcher said.

In January, WTC Perth announced plans to build a multi-million dollar complex including a 75-storey tower, convention centre, apartments and shops as well as a hotel and offices on the site and surrounding area by 2022.
