Northern Origin Presents "The Best Raves Of 1989" On DVD

Northern Origin Presents “The Best Raves Of 1989" on DVD

1989 stands out in our memory as the year when the Manchester sound caught the imagination and Eurodance music hit the charts. But the headline-grabbing phenomenon was the growth of law-defying rave parties that filled warehouses and fields in south-east England. The tabloid press concentrated on the drug culture associated with the all-night acid house parties, but overlooked the restrictive licensing laws which prompted the mass gatherings.

Northern Origin Presents “SUNRISE - A Midsummers Nights Dream - 24th June 1989" on DVD

On June 24th 1989, White Waltham Airfield was the venue for one of the largest Acid House raves at the time. Called the Sunrise Midsummer Party, it was organised by Tony Colston-Hayter and David Roberts. The event was attended by over 11000 ravers, and about 1000 vehicles were brought to the airfield. This caused 3 mile tailbacks on the approach road up to the ’Fairey’ hangar (built by (Fairey Aviation) on the North side of the airfield where the rave was held. ’The Sun’ newspaper ran a headline ’Ecstasy Airport’ the next day.

Northern Origin Presents “SUNRISE & BACK TO THE FUTURE" on DVD

Sunrise/Back to the Future were one of the most widely publicised Acid House promoters in the UK. One commentator states "Over the course of 1989, promoters such as World Dance, Genesis, Helter Skelter and Energy succeeded in setting acid house nights free of the urban core's constructions, staging ever more elaborate Orbital parties in borrowed and rented fields, the odd warehouse, or some other similarly vacant structure.

Northern Origin Presents “SUNRISE & BACK TO THE FUTURE" on DVD

More than 25,000 youngsters - some aged only ELEVEN - went wild at a huge acid house party yesterday as the police watched helplessly. Dozens of evil pushers raked in a fortune openly selling the mind-bending drug Ecstacy at £10 a time - with a bottle of mineral water to wash it down. But the police were only there to make sure there was no trouble while notices about the noise were served on the organisers. The 15-hour bash started on Saturday night when hordes of acid house fans converged on the village of Effingham, Surrey. Cars, coaches and vans poured into Newmarsh Farm for the £30-a-head "Energy Summer Festival". Youngsters from as far way as Leeds, Swindon and Ipswich screamed "Mental, mental" as lasers lit the sky.

Northern Origin Presents "RainDance Raves 1989/1990" On DVD

Raindance began life in a giant circus tent in a football field at Jenkins Lane on the East London/Essex borders back in September 1989. It was in the days when one music served all and was known as “Rave”. It was the first legal fully licensed all night event in the UK, paving the way for the modern dance music scene that exists today.
