But what if the rave becomes better that the real world?
And what happens when the law says there can be no more?
Acid House, the second summer of love, and weekend after weekend of pure ecstasy.
But what happens when the rave is better that the real world?
And what do you do when the law tells you there can be no more?
And what’s the alternative? A lager fuelled fight on the high street? or a brawl in the terraces? Tiny skirts and free shots?
It may be legal but it’s far from better.
Repetitive Beats is a multi -media play set between 1989 – The second summer of love, and 1994 – The year of the Criminal Justice & Public Order Act and is a high octane look at one of the most influential and hedonistic movements in modern music.
With a live DJ, original music, real footage and plenty of classics from the day.
