A New Generation of RaversLily Flood

'A new generation of ravers' (2020)

A collection of anonymous statements by young people in their twenties who have experienced illegal raves. 


‘A new generation of ravers’ is an ongoing project collecting the thoughts and feelings of the young people who now popularise the illegal rave scene. An echo of the original raves from the 1980/90’s which grew due to austerity, these new events have been rising in popularity since 2016, with thousands of people attending events up and down the country. I was interested in hearing why these young people had chosen these events as a night out instead of the nightclubs that line our high-street’s, and why these parties have grown so much in popularity since 2016.
