A collection of 4 documentaries on the Free party movement
Between 1988 and 1990, acid house becomes ever more popular and clubs are targeted for repression. The first rave sound-systems leave the cities and their raver-followers meet the travellers at the big summer festivals. The first collaboration takes place at the Glastonbury festival in 1989. The 1992 Avon Free Festival at Castlemorton is the first free underground large-scale techno festival. The event is a catalyst which galvanizes the enthusiasm of thousands of participants determined to party according to this new ritual, in defiance of English law. accross Europe, and inspiring others to follow their example.
On 3rd November 1994 the British Parliament votes in Section 63 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act, outlawing any gathering of people more than 100 people accompanied by amplified music which “includes sounds wholly or predominantly characterised by the emission of a succession of repetitive beats.” accross Europe, and inspiring others to follow their example.
Exasperated by developing situation, the British authorities start to arrest large numbers in the traveller community. Several members of Spiral Tribe, pioneers of the rave movement are arrested. After their trial, they decide to expatriate to France, spreading their spirit of freedom and music accross Europe, and inspiring others to follow their example.
Their goal is to cross borders and export this music through political protest or cultural exchange. Some leave to explore the South-American continent, while others go to Africa, Eastern Europe, the United States, Australia, Asia .. the World Traveller Adventure was born.. United around the same beliefs, techno travellers denounce the enslavement of man by machines and advocate respect for the environment. In their atypical parties, repetitive music is reunited with its original taste of dissent. Their motto: ‘Let the music never stop’. Their obsession : secrecy. Although the hundreds of nomadic tribes wandering Europe since the early 90’s know the exact locations of the parties, they are difficult to find. The location, date and hours of the parties are known by only a handful of people a few hours before the start. The flyer is just a simple piece of paper passed from person to person, with the number of a telephone message service which announces the itinerary (infoline). Secret codes on the internet open the virtual doors of this techno underground. + more: www.worldtravelleradventures.org
