The AvidXchange Music Factory is an entertainment venue near Uptown Charlotte. There are multiple bars, restaurants, clubs, and concert venues located in one complex. World is one of the nightlife clubs at the Music Factory open on the weekends. The club focuses on hosting Electronic Dance Music concerts and other related events. I had the opportunity to visit World recently for a weekend EDM show featuring Tritonal.
I have been to the nightclub before when it was known as Label. New management took over the nightclub last year and made improvements in security and customer experience. Many of the events held at World are EDM concerts. You can except fast-paced music, flashing lights, confetti, and other visual effects. The opening act typically starts between 10 and 11 p.m. with the main act coming on around midnight. The concert usually ends around 2 a.m. There are three types of tickets available for shows. General admission tickets give you access to the floor space of the venue with bars on either side and bathrooms behind the stage. These tickets are the least expensive option with prices varying by show. You should expect to spend $20-40 for a general admission ticket. Prices vary depending on the popularity of the artist. The next level of ticket available is for the VIP area. This area is above the floor space on the right-hand side of the venue. You get a bird's eye view of the concert along with a separate bar and bathroom just for VIP ticket holders. These tickets range from $10-30 more than a general admission ticket. The third option to attend a show is to buy a service table service for a group of people. This is much more expensive than a normal ticket, but it does include alcohol, mixers, a private seating area, and table service for your group. It is common to see people celebrating a birthday or special event when purchasing a table service package.
Over time I have purchased floor and VIP tickets depending on the artist and pricing. I almost always buy a VIP ticket because it is less crowded and a better view of the show. However, you do not get the same vibe from the crowd and have much less space to move around in the VIP. The floor space is a better option for those that want to jump, dance, and be fully immersed in the show. World is one of the more intimate venues I have been in to see popular EDM artists like Hardwell, Blau, and Borgeous. The size of the venue allows you to always have a good view of the artists and visual effects. I am thankful to have a concert venue in Charlotte that brings my favorite EDM artists to town.
