Where ya from?
How many ya on?

Notes On Rave In Dublin is a roller coaster ride through the birth pangs of dance music in our dirty old town. From the democratic romance of those early loved up dancefloors to how a cold social stratification and commercialisation crept back. Leaving it up to a network of outsider labels, pirates and ravers to establish an indigenous scene that we now call our own. This is a story of how an underground works, mutates and survives.

Share your rave reminiscences

In the spirit of the project, we’re be asking members of the public to share their own rave reminiscences, thoughts and memories as prompted by the documentary.

The intention is to eventually collate the best of them as part of a digital timeline.

This is inspired by efforts like acidhouseflashback.co.uk, the Manchester Lapsed Clubber project and other archive projects.
