It will pave the way for clubs across the country to reopen their doors in the near future.

Circus Founder and DJ Yousef said:

“The First Dance is going to be a historic moment for electronic music and all events across in the UK.

“As the date nears and the weekend of events becomes closer to a reality, me and the team at Circus all share an almost overwhelming feeling of pride, emotion, excitement and of course responsibility for what lies ahead.

“Together with the team at Liverpool City Council, we have safely crafted these events together, with a singular focus to help the UK get closer to life beyond Covid, which for myself and Circus has been a great honour. 

“We can’t wait to see the dance floor erupt time and time again as it has over the last 18 years! ”
