Event of the month: 30 Years of Rave by Amnesia House est 1988
Bradley Gunn Raver’s September Rave Review – Ministry of Sound
The event of the month crown for September has to sit on the heads of those behind the Amnesia House event: 30 Years Of Rave.
For those who are unaware, and an interesting fact, to begin with, is that Amnesia House is the promoter responsible for holding the first legal rave in the UK, a fact I’m sure any promoter would be proud to have under their belt. The fact that the name of this event celebrates that this was 30 years in the business for them underpins just how far the brand has come on their journey since its humble beginnings all them years ago.
Headlining proceedings was Frankie Bones, a legendary artist who is respectably known for bringing the rave culture from the UK to New York. His experience showed with a blinding set that had the whole crowd gyrating to his impeccable track selection. You can listen to the set here.
The event was being held at The Empire, based in the heart of Coventry. The Empire as a venue isn’t to be underestimated, and I must say I was taken aback by just how much the room was kicking with enthusiasm from every corner and angle – you could tell everyone in attendance was well up for ensuring this 30th birthday party was going to be one to remember.
I was attending alongside my good friend and Techno producer Phutek, who was kind enough to have invited me along in the first place, with it being his home city. I knew how keen he was to give me a glimpse into Coventry’s rave life. I enjoyed my time here and came away with an unreal video of Frankie playing a very special track!
