A live performance then brings 50 minutes of immersive theatrical performance, crafting a visual and musical voyage through the timeline of Human Traffic. The night is then finished off with a no-holds barred party, with each show bringing different tastes of music from house, garage, orchestral renditions and sets from heavyweight DJs including trance legend Paul Oakenfold who’s confirmed to play the final show on June 13th.

CEO & Founder Deborah Parsons explains :

“We wanted to create Human Traffic Live to provide a truly never-been-felt before experience. It’s a treat, you simply arrive, you have to prepare nothing, think of nothing, we have done all of that for you, you arrive to let go and get lost in the experience, come join us!”
