DollarTrader : Living in the moment, not living for social media...

Nacht Schreck : fvcking heaven. thousands of people of all races, all classes and backgrounds, all lifestyles, coming together and dancing to the same groove. there is nary a soul to be seen who isn't dancing. another thing I remember about the old days: party people respected each other's space. we picked a spot to dance and stayed there. these days at raves, people are constantly shuffling around, wandering from one place to the next, walking into dancers and stepping on people's feet. Symptom of mass ADHD.

John Razimus : If time travel is invented and I steal the time machine you'll eventually see me in this video

reallife828 : Social media has made people self conscience. We use to live through the reality of our perspectives and were more in tune with other people vibration.

◘ EXOSPHERE ◘ : Makes you wonder who these people were, their names, where they are now...

Jaded Jonny : The good old days.. What a much better time it was then now..

Steven Theologo : Everyone had so much style. 😍

Tyko : Frankie Bones - Facebook post about this rave (referenced different video, but same party) "Sept 23, 1989 Ipswich UK Hangar. ENERGY. What happened was the police tried to stop the people from getting there which caused a seven hour delay in reaching the space. It didn't even start until after 7 A.M. So once the Police realized 17,000 people were trapped in every little town in a 20 mile radius they lifted the ban and thats why people are going mad. The people had won. I remember hundreds of cars diverting across the long field which was about 6:45 a.m. this opened up the entire area which was country roads stuck in raver traffic for 4-5 hours. The police tried to keep the event by happening but actually let the event happen due to security risks that the Old Bill actually caused. What is even more strange about September 23, 1989 is that I wasn't originally booked for the event. Little "Louie" Vega was on the flyer. Louie & his manager were on the same flight going over to London the first time when I played on August 26, 1989. Patrick Moxie (his manager) did not want Louie playing at illegal rave parties and actually told me, I shouldn't get involved with these type of events,. My explanation was "Patrick, I spent 1/2 my teenage life in Subway Tunnels doing illegal sh*t, this is a chance of a lifetime. We invited them to the Energy, I played and Patrick tells me, they had lined up a half a million dollars in Remixes for Louie and that they could not be bothered with "distractions" right now. Two weeks later back in New York City, I get a call that Louie had to cancel his September 23, 1989 gig and they wanted me to take his slot because it was a no-brainer, we murdered it on 8-26-89. But I had to go to the U.K. by myself for 17 days. There was no communication like internet or cell phones, so that trip was pretty hard for me. So many good things happened that trip but I was so home sick after that weekend. I also know I played the second slot, I believe Jazzy M opened from 7:15-8:15. I know I played 8:15-9:15 and there was a shortage of DJ's who actually made it. I believe Fabio went on and then Evil Eddie Richards, though.....this I can't confirm, I was having too much fun...." Frankie Bones There's several videos of this party on YT. Recommend checking em out. You'll see Frankie in one of them DJing with his denim tuxedo and dope ass mullet.

Aslan De Lyon : Look at all the amazing colors, shapes, ages, sizes, classes, religions, etc. all grooving together without judgements, that's RAVING and HOUSE.

Taylor Terry : OH MY GOSH I WAS HERE! such a good time! i was the blonde in the hat at 17:48. wow i had no idea there was footage of this. look at us, we're just peaceful humans connecting with one another, regardless of skin colour or physical appearance, dancing, having a beautiful experience raising the frequency of the collective. what are we doing here that this is so wrong it has to be made illegal??
