Over the final weekend of Festival 2018 join us inside the geodesic dome in George Square for a high-octane, audio-visual showdown dance party.

As the audience gather, mingle and dance inside the immersive dome surrounded by mind-blowing, colourful video projections, pop-up live performers will appear on raised platforms.  Dancers, singers, acrobats and DJ’s combine in a symphony to endurance.

Featuring stunning live performances from Patricia Panther (Glasgow Girls), Chisato Minamimura (London Paralympic Games Opening Ceremony), DJ Letitia Pleiades, Jamie Rea and some of Scotland's most brilliant young acrobats performing jaw dropping moves, this exclusive finale event is the perfect way to celebrate reaching the festival finish line with friends.  

Age recommendation 10+. Limited capacity:  Book Now!

Presented by Raw Material and Pachamama Productions.
