The organisers of the event have remained anonymous but it looks like it is definitely going ahead. It’s Facebook page said it will take place in a “discreet location”.

AD reports those attending the rave will be sprayed with 5,000 litres of blood. One of the organisers told the Dutch publication that they want to use real blood but they are still trying to work out whether that is possible.

A special sprinkler system has already been developed and has been tested.

“It is indeed an absurd idea and freaky, but that is the nature of this party. You see more and more events around Halloween but which are more focused on pumpkins. A sort of children’s parties. It may of us somewhat rawer and more exciting,” they said.

Demand for the event so far is reported to be high, with organisers expecting some 1,500 ravers on Halloween night.
