If a rave at an abandoned asylum doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, why not pay a visit to The Voodoo Ball?

Taking place at the Invisible Wind Factory, this promises to be an unforgettable might of African dance music, drumming, fire, martial arts, face and body painting, incredible set design and much more.

Set against the futuristic landscape of a dystopian society, The Return to Afrotopia tells the story of a self-destructing world where civil order has collapsed, violence is rife and at the heart of it all is two conflicting tribes – the afroPUNKS and the afroLORDS.

File this one under something different!
