Summer of Illegal Raves Expected?

We have just received the news that clubs in Ibiza wont work this summer. Venues and nightclub associations had been lobbying to get clubs open toward the end of the 2020 season with social distancing and increased hygiene measures in place but the Balearic government has ruled out any club activity this year.

There are also major raves illegally organized because the people are hungry for partying. Over 6,000 people attended two illegal raves which took place at Daisy Nook Country Park in Oldham, and nearby Carrington, in Manchester, UK, last Saturday 13th June.

Many think that the Europe and England especially will experience a “summer of rave” not seen since 1989 because the government has failed to give “socially starved” young people any clarity on when they can start partying again legally, clubbing experts have warned.

Advertised on Snapchat and Instagram, their locations are revealed at the 11th hour by WhatsApp messages, with word quickly spreading as people livestream the event on social media, dropping virtual “pins” on Google Maps for their friends to join them.

Also, two major festivals are being held in Europe this August, both in Serbia. Those are renowned EXIT and Lovefest. Read more here.

What do you think we can expect this summer and will you visit an illegal rave?
