Retired NBA star Shaquille O’Neal will throw his very own electronic music dance event in Miami and plans on DJing a set himself.

“Shaq’s Fun House” debuts March 24 during Miami Music week, which coincides with the event Ultra Music Festival.

The one-night, invite-only party – taking place at a yet-to-be-announced warehouse venue – will feature EDM artists and carnival attractions. The event will run from 2 a.m. to sunrise.

“Despite all the problems that are going on in the world, there are two (things) that’ll bring people together: it’s sports and music,” O’Neil told the Associated Press, adding that there will be “flame throwers, people swinging from ceilings, a lot of costumes. We want this to be very different than any other festival.”

O’Neal has yet to announce the lineup for the event, as he says he wants to surprise the audience.

The basketball star has been heavily in involved in music, even releasing a few rap albums and DJing when he was a college student at Louisiana State University.
