Renowned Liverpool dance brand, CIRCUS, and the city's largest rave space, the Blackstone Street Warehouse, welcome one of the world's craziest and most fantastical touring parties over the Spring Bank Holiday this year.
Taking over the colossal venue, on Saturday 27th May, Spanish event specialists Elrow will present their enchanting music and art spectacle, Kaos Garden, the brainchild of Madrid-born painter and sculptor, Okuda San Miguel. Mimicking the scenes found in one of Miguel's favourite paintings - the Garden of Earthly Delights by Dutch painter, Hieronymus Bosch - the trippy decor and lineup of equally mind-bending performers will have you fully convinced that you've left our universe and travelled into another, to party within the widely celebrated triptych piece of art portraying hell, earth and paradise.
More details regarding the full bill of artists set to perform at the upcoming event have yet to be announced. Watch this space.

Closing out the month of May at Newcastle clubbing hot spot, The Lofts, FUSE head honcho Enzo Siragusa and Liverpool's Queen of groove, Lauren Lo Sung have been asked to ensure that the Bank Holiday weekend is one that guests at the event will remember for years to come.
Taking a dive into the deeper side of electronic music, the pair will each flex their skills behind the ones and twos, soundtracking an evening brimming with quality minimal house and tech house pearlers, from 10 pm until 3 am the following day.
Offering audiences in the North East a taste of what goes down at his infamous parties in the UK capital, Siragusa will showcase his inimitable dance sound, built up of influences taken from 90s rave culture, whilst Lo Sung gets all Parisian, serving up a stripped-back set bursting with texture and warmth.

But what happens when the music stops and the stage falls quiet at the end of the event? An afterparty happens, of course! And a pretty mega one at that.
