The world's first drone circus is to be held in the Netherlands, the Guardian reports.

The AIR 2015 show, which is scheduled to take place this year has hundreds of drones lined up to fill the venue and is being developed in conjunction with the Royal Netherlands Air Force, although a date has not yet been set.

"In this high energy and explosive show, drones will take centre stage to bring a collaboration and fusion of music, video, projections and special effects. AIR allows you to experience a variety of ballet and battles, races and lasers, circus, illusions and most of all magic from hundreds of drones," said the event's promoter Fjuze in a statement on the site announcing the AIR2015 show.

According to The Guardian, Fjuze is not the first to have the idea of using drones as a display team. Disney is working on replacing its more traditional means of live entertainment such as giant puppets and fireworks with drone displays, including a mesh of drones covered in lights simulating an aerial display.
