A daytime rave is coming to Birmingham this weekend with street food, bottomless cocktails and free glow sticks .
The Kevin and Perry Go Large Brunch Rave will be at Leveldigbeth – a converted cash and carry warehouse – and tickets are available now.
The kitsch dance party is themed on the 2000 comedy about two teenagers who go to Ibiza – which was itself based on the Harry Enfield sketch Kevin the teenager.
It’s on at Leveldigbeth in Bradford Street, B12 0RP, from 1pm to 8pm on Saturday.
There are free glow sticks for the first 100 people, you can get bottomless cocktails from 1pm to 2pm and there will be street food on offer.
Top DJs from Gatecrasher, Hed Kandi and Cream Classics are expected to play and there’s a Kevin and Perry fancy dress competition where you can win jam sandwiches and beer.
The rave will be in a warehouse – or outside in the courtyard if the temperature is above 24C because the venue doesn’t have air conditioning and would not be able to run smoke machines and club lighting.
Also on offer will be face painting, balloons, craft beer and a screening of the Kevin and Perry Go Large film.
Tickets are priced £10 – they cover entry only. All food, drink and face painting must be purchased separately.
Organisers point out that Kevin and Perry won’t be attending or DJ-ing but revealed this spoof letter from the pair:
“We’ve turned 18 today and we’re going to host our first proper rave! We’re gonna take over the scene and become the biggest club DJs! Kevin and Perry will be organising a dirty Brunch day-to-night 90s Ibiza Rave with all the birds.
“From 1pm to late they”ll be HAVING IT LARGE and spinning 90s House Music in a secret warehouse party in Birmingham!
“While Ms Patterson, you cheeky girl, will be giving it hard and pouring out bottomless vodka cocktails (the first hour only 1pm to 2pm) for you dirty bloody ravers!
“Who knows, we may even screen the film (if we can be bothered) in our crap 80s TV room. Perry may throw in some cheesy wotsits crisps (or some street-food by Taste and Liquor – but don’t push it!) and Kevin may even let you play on his favourite Nintendo games.
“Plus superstar DJ Eye Ball Paul will be playing some top 90s tunes and cool mixes (if he even bothers to show up!) However Candice and Gemma will be there, carrying our record box of dance, techno & trance tracks as we are the superstar DJs.
“This is one Brunch Rave not to be missed! Kevin and Perry Go Large Brunch Rave will be the biggest party in town!
“Dress up in your baddest 90s tracksuit, glasses and 90s rave hats and get practising those big-box little box moves!
“Kevin and Perry Go Large 90s Brunch Rave is the first event of its kind in the world!!!!! First stop Birmingham, then London and who knows maybe Ibiza?”
