In an interview with GCN, Sean said: “We have been greatly inspired by the emergence of alternative club nights that were flourishing before the pandemic; Grace, Strawberries, Sanctuary and so on. We want more alternative safe spaces for queer people and allies to be free to express themselves amongst like-minded people to awesome music.
He added: “We hope to bring a flavour of the European underground rave scene to Dublin.”
Sean also explains: “Our no phone policy will allow people to dress as they please and to play and dance without reproach.”

Dress code for the event is preferably black and “the freakier the better! Dust off those harnesses and chains, iron those mesh tops (or no top preferably) and polish those dancing boots.”
Tickets for Not Safe For Work are available here with the doors opening at 10:PM Friday, January 28.
