Production company A Lost Weekend will host an immersive Human Traffic event at London's Printworks in 2020.
There will be 18 shows at the 5,000-capacity venue, featuring a '90s culture exhibition, themed indoor street food & bar pop-up, a live immersive Human Traffic theatrical performance, alongside a party and club experience. Speaking on the legacy of Human Traffic, CEO & Founder of A Lost Weekend, Deborah Parsons, said: "Even since the film’s first release, it continues to spark yearning feelings for those that lived through the era as well as inspiring a modern-day band of professional party people and entertainment seekers. 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".
Entitled A Lost Weekend presents Human Traffic Live, the event will run for three weeks out of the South-East London venue, celebrating 20 years since the debut of Justin Kerrigan's 1999 cult classic. Kim Gavin, who worked as the Creative Director on the closing ceremonies of the London 2012 Olympic Games, has been appointed as Artistic Director for the event. Joe Crossley, who has worked as Digital Art Director for Burning Man festival and Arcadia's Pangea stages at Glastonbury, will also join the team as Digital Art Director.
Music is at the heart of the series, with each night of the week and each show in turn seeing a different music genre: House & Garage Orchestras, bands, and on Friday through to Sunday, plus one Bank Holiday Monday, DJs will perform. Already announced as closing the series of events on the 13th June 2020 is Paul Oakenfold, who shared it will be his only summer date for 2020, and he will be curating the line-up.
A Lost Weekend presents Human Traffic Live will run from the 22nd May to the 13th June next year. Watch the trailer below and find out more information here.
