The festival that sees people dress in white and cover each other with brightly coloured powder, on the hour, every hour, whilst enjoying live dance music, will take over outdoor locations that include London, Birmingham, Manchester and Newcastle, attracting thousands of people.

The event will see people entertained by some of the best local and international DJs and HOLI ONE encourages talent to get in touch with them directly, if they want to perform at the festival.

Stephan Dau, CEO and founder of HOLI ONE World Festivals, said: "We're excited to bring the HOLI ONE experience to the UK for a 17 day tour in the summer and we're currently in the planning phase, looking at locations that can accommodate thousands of people and working with local businesses and DJs.

"HOLI ONE festival is going to be a memorable experience for all who attend, in addition to providing a substantial economic and tourism boost to the different regions."

Unlike other festivals which can span a couple of days and can require you to pay for camping, which can deter some festive goers, HOLI ONE is in each of the different locations for one day only between 12.00pm and 10.00pm.

Stephan continued: "The festival is about making friends, coming together and having an unforgettable experience.  Everyone is equal at HOLI ONE and everyone leaves looking the same, covered in safe and quality cosmetic powder, with a smile on their face and some great pictures to remember it all by."

The events which are currently in the pre-event production stage are calling for all event related businesses to get in touch and be involved with the only festival of its kind, from bars, to bands and DJS to promoters. 

Last year, HOLI ONE festivals were attended by 100,000 worldwide and took place across cities and countries that included London, South Africa and Berlin.
