This was the scene as a top DJ staged a sell-out gig – in a CEMETERY.

Mercury Prize-nominated rapper Ghostpoet turned the normally peaceful graveyard at Arnos Vale, Bristol, into a rocking music venue complete with a spectacular light show.

More than 150 revellers breathed new life into the eerie setting for the one-off event to mark the launch of the new Nokia Live Sessions series of gigs, linked to their state-of-the-art Lumia smartphone.

The 18th-century mausoleum has played host to a number of musical acts in recent years.

Local charity worker Jeff Chance, 30, was enticed to the event by the unique location of the venue.

He said: “The haunting venue really complemented the music.

“British music needs more unique venues, it’s such an amazing experience for both crowd and performer alike.

“It was crazy. The music was so loud I thought the dead would rise up and start dancing.”
