Drumcode – Face Painting, Rugby & Special Guests


There’s more Drumcode Halloween than just Techno, DJs, amazing production and beautiful bars selling good drinks…

We’ve already intro’d you to the scientists who will be experimenting on the zombies, and now to tell you about a few other surprises we have up our wizard’s sleeves!

A few people have been asking if we will be showing the Aussies vs All Blacks Rugby World Cup final on Saturday. Well the good news is, yes. You can find a big telly and some seats in the chill out area next to the food and cocktail bar. Oh yes. We go the extra mile for you guys. Kick off is at 4.00pm.

Others have been asking about whether we will have face painters there to add some extra colour, glitter or a spooky makeover – We have the wonderful Starlight Boutique on hand near the token desks to tempt you on your way in so you can make the most of your makeover. Think sugar skulls, glittery mimes, sequined felines, unicorns, ghouls, ghosts, zombies, Frankenstein, wonderland, psycho clowns and everything in between. If you’ve left it too late to get your outfit or the courier has lost it in the post, this is your answer!

£2.50 – Glitter lids/lips
£5.00 – Small design (detailed around 1 eye – paints / sequins / glitters / gems)
£8.00 – Mask design (detailed around both eyes – paints / sequins / glitters / gems)

And finally,  we did hint that there may be more acts to be announced on the day –  We still can’t say who they are, but it is a special back to back from two amazing artists. All we can say is that one of these special guests has played at Tobacco Dock before and the other hasn’t. Neither of them are on the lineup at the moment so expect two new names to be announced before the show.

See you on the dancefloor.
