A nightclub in Amsterdam will apparently host the world's first ever "blood rave," at which partygoers will be soaked with torrents of blood from an overhead sprinkler system.
The English-language Dutch news site NL Times claim to have spoken to one of the event's organizers, who at this stage seems determined to remain anonymous. The party, based on the opening scene in the late 90s vampire film Blade, will take place on Halloween if the Facebook page is to be believed.
Is it to be believed? Who the fuck knows. There's a video at the event page that appears to show the sprinkler system being tested but it's far from conclusive and the name of the venue is yet to be announced. We're attempting to get in touch with the promoters to verify it ourselves.
"After a long search we have developed a special sprinkler system with pipes running across the ceiling and thus making us able to spray blood over the crowd. We've already tested it a number of times with a substance resembling blood," the NL Times was told. "It is pushing the borders, but we want to see how far we can go."
Who's gonna go to this thing? According to the NL Times, "In terms of attendees, [the organizers] expect somewhat 'freaky' people in terms of personality." Here are some pictures of some of the 1.8k people who currently say they're going to Blood Rave on Facebook:
