You might stop the party, but you couldn’t stop the future!

Good to see that 20 years on from the Criminal Justice Act illegal raves are still going strong in the Sussex countryside.

One made the headlines after taking place in Devil’s Dyke at the weekend, resulting in usual over the top reporting from the Daily Mail website.


As Spiral Tribe said 20 years ago “You might stop the party, but you can’t stop the future.”

News: Serious breach of the peace!

Seeing this in todays press reminded me of the illegal raves of the 1990s!

2000 Skins fans partying hard in a 20 million pound house on Park Lane.  Ironic that Park Lane was the scene of the riots in 1994 that ended a day of demonstrations against the Criminal Justice Act. A bill that was meant to stop large trespass and nuisance on land.

Here is a bit of Spiral Tribe and the tune ‘Breach The Peace’ which came into my head as I read up on this Park Lane party today. Embedding on this video is  disabled by request. Why do users do that? So click the link to watch it on YouTube.
