After 18 months of deserted dancefloors, clubbing brand Foreverland is set to return to Leeds on Friday, October 15.

Partygoers will witness gigantic installations, hang out beneath tropical palms and dance amongst the day-glo flora in a cinematically transformed space.

Performing at the 02 academy will be James Hype, Secondcity, Nancie / Ben Rainey and Zurra / Jayli.

A Foreverland party.

Clubbers can also expect interactive walkabout characters, trippy neon-themed decorations, giant hanging inflatables and much more.

The Foreverland director said: "We’re putting a focus on the whole sensory experience, adding themed smells to the venues to differentiate Foreverland shows from all other experiences revellers might have had.

“We’re incorporating a lot more technology into the stage builds and SFX, using holographic projections, water pumps and moving levers to add motion to parts of the decor build."

What is Foreverland?

A Foreverland party.

The boundary-pushing club brand began seven years ago in Bournemouth.

They are known for throwing surrealist parties and have held events in 26 cities across seven countries.

The brand has sold over 130,000 tickets.

What can I expect from the music?

Musically, Foreverland brings cutting-edge sounds with lots of energy. House and bass-heavy tech define the soundtracks, but with plenty of nuances along the way.

Shows are hosted by Tyrone (MC) and Faris Rai will be working as a presenter.

The resident team features rising UK talents such as AmyElle, whose recent hits include 'Down With Me’, ‘Animal Kingdom’ and ‘Feel The Heat’.

How do I get tickets?

Tickets are available online now, from £24.50.
