Event description
Join us to dance and celebrate the pirate radio and rave heritage of Waltham Forest in this exciting new warehouse venue in Leyton

About this event

For one night only we return to the rave, in a unique warehouse setting in the heart of the borough, playing a mixture of deep house, acid house, hardcore, jungle, and drum and bass, DJs include:

  • Linden C & Rob Acteson (Mi House Radio, Strictly Rhythm, Hypnosis, Dungeons)
  • Dlux (Déjà Vu FM, Brain Records, Dungeons)
  • Adrian H (Pulse 90.6, Dungeons, Labrynth)
  • Mad B (Friends FM, Dungeons)
  • DJ Connie (Runtings, Centreforce, Dungeons)
  • Original ID (Friends FM, Kool FM, Déjà Vu FM)
  • + more

1989 – 1994 was a distinct period in music history; at the end of the acid house scene; garage, hardcore, jungle and drum and bass all emerged in quick succession. Waltham Forest played an important role in the development and dissemination of these musical genres, influencing a generation of musicians and young people. The borough's role in this scene happened because of the diverse cultural mix of the borough, its location and architecture.

All of the DJs playing on the night were integral to the development of the local scene and have gone on to play nationally and internationally.

The weekend will also play host to the 'Sweet Harmony' exhibition including rare hand-painted 90s rave banners and artwork by Walthamstow based company Bannerama, photographs, flyers and projections from the era and area. Come and be part of the action over the weekend, bring friends and family to see and understand the scene, if you can't make the party, swing by in the day, enjoy a little Sunday session in the space and soak up the vibe.

The music event is over 18s after 7pm. Prior to this anyone under 13 is free but will need a ticket. **Please note** there are a limited number of spaces for under 13s.

After party TBC
