About Dopamine Dreams New Year’s Eve Rave

Multi-sensory rave experience Foreverland to arrive in Oxford on New Year’s Eve with ‘Dopamine Dreams’ tour.

The multi-sensory rave experience, Foreverland, will return by popular demand to the O2 Academy in Oxford on New Year’s Eve, Sunday, 31 December, 2023, with its all-new Dopamine Dreams tour. 

Fresh off the back of three sold-out shows at the world-famous Printworks London, Foreverland is on the road, taking its famously fun and immersive parties to 22 towns and cities across the UK. With a cutting-edge soundtrack of house, tech and dance anthems and championing the next generation of DJ talent, there is no party where clubbers have more freedom to be who they want to be.

Foreverland stimulates the senses, submerging clubbers in a utopian dreamland awash with kaleidoscopic colour, extravagant décor, and breathtaking stage performances. Party people can submerge body parts in a pool of psychedelic paint and glow all night long, pose for selfies with crazy characters in mad costumes roaming the dancefloor, be captivated by mind-bending art installations, and swim in an ocean of falling confetti showers. 

Founded in Bournemouth in 2015, Foreverland founder Connor Scanlan said, “We can’t wait to tour Dopamine Dreams around the UK. Off the back of a magical debut for the theme at Printworks London in April, we thought it was only fair that the rest of the nation gets to experience it too. We’ve got you a total sensory overload, the ultimate sugar rush for the soul. Fancy taking a dopamine hit?!”

For the first time, Foreverland is throwing up the rule book on booking big name DJs for the Dopamine Dreams tour. The Foreverland residents are the stars here – the ones who know the crowd inside out, like it used to be in the golden days of dance music culture before the advent of the superstar DJ. The clubbers become the lead characters at each show, plotting unique and unforgettable journeys through the night.

There are 15 resident DJs on rotation on the tour, each on the cusp of blowing up in a big way over the next 12 months. DJs hand-picked specially to appear in Oxford include the unmissable Alex Culross. The 23-year-old Scottish DJ and producer already has a Beatport #1 under his belt with ‘The Light’. This one-to-watch spins a mix of house and tech and enjoys heavyweight support from Skream, Solardo, James Hype, and more.

More red-hot talent comes in the form of London artist, Raphi. A DJ as well as an accomplished vocalist, her commercial and big room sounds have led her to star on tracks alongside EDM heroes Laidback Luke and MOTi. 

Long-time Foreverland residents Royal Hustle will wow with their mix of melodic and ethereal house music. The duo from Bournemouth have certainly been hustling over the past few years, impressing label heads at New State Music, the dance music fraternity in Marin Garrix and EDX, and of course, Foreverland crowds all over the UK and in Barcelona and Prague. 

Completing the bill on New Year’s Eve is the breakout outfit, Zodiac. While this three-piece group is newly formed, they already have a strong creative identity themed on the constellation. Exciting times lie ahead for their melodic and progressive house and tech sounds, with talks of a major label signing on the cards. 

Dopamine Dreams sees Foreverland debut in Middlesbrough, Wolverhampton, Stoke, Canterbury, Nottingham, Norwich, and Coventry, and it returns by popular demand to Glasgow, Sheffield, Bristol, Torquay, Birmingham, Lincoln, Leicester, Leeds, Newcastle, Cardiff, and Bournemouth. It also arrives at new venues in Liverpool (Grand Central Dome) and Manchester (Academy), and it stages a second New Year’s Eve bash at Concorde 2 in Brighton.

This season of Foreverland is set to be the most spectacular yet. Not only can clubbers lose themselves in a quality soundtrack as they witness the resident DJs’ rise to fame, but their senses will be truly awakened as Foreverland delivers the most captivating Instagrammable moments.
