Drawing on Free Parties and tings
After sensational coverage in the tabloids, culminating in a particularly large rave at Castlemorton in May 1992, the government acted on what was depicted as a growing menace. New law was passed, the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 which contained several sections designed to suppress the growing free party and Reclaim the Streets enviro movements and travellers.
By the early 2000s, the term “rave” had fallen out of favour among some people in the electronic dance music community, particularly in Europe. Many Europeans identify themselves as “clubbers” rather than ravers. The term ‘Free Party’ has been used for sometime. It tried to disconnect events from big commercial gigs of the early nineties to a more anarchist version of a party. All built on the earlier ‘Free Festival’ scene.
