Aciiid! UK Rave 1988 - 1992

Date
Tue 24.09.19
Timings
1pm – 2:30pm

The explosion of Rave culture onto Britain in the late '80s and early '90s was buoyed by a sense of collectivism and the utopianism of a new Promised Land. Reclaiming the Commons and the shells of former industry for parties lasting days, many ravers believed they were dancing towards revolution.

So what happens when the party stops? And have we been coming down ever since?

Join us on this journey into musical history as we collectively listen and discuss some of the era's key records, played on the TWT Soundsystem!

Speakers
