Rave culture meets the roller rink at Roller Dance Australia's second Roller Rave, which returns after its first proved such a hit. Again, getting your skates on and dancing to DJ-spun tunes is on the agenda. You'll glide, you'll make shapes and you'll feel like you've been transported back to the 90s. And no, this isn't just a roller disco under another name, because recreating the rave vibe is one of the event's number-one aims.

Behind the decks: DJ Phil Smart, who was indeed helping get raves pumping three decades ago. To provide the soundtrack, he'll be joined by Jen-E, another icon from back in the day. And while they spin live sets, the visuals will also throw it back like you're in a warehouse in the era of classic flicks Go and Human Traffic.

It's all going down from 7–11pm on Saturday, May 25 at Northshore Brisbane's Superordinary, with entry costing $30 and pre-booked skate hire on top setting you back another $10. No matter your skating level, or if you just want to dance without strapping on wheels, everyone is welcome.

And as well as a roller rink and a dance floor, there'll be a skate ramp, games alley and interactive art installations, plus drinks from Heaps Normal.
