TBH you are better off with your yoga. even if it doesn’t get busted hard a 3 day tek eventually degenerates into Lord of the flies in this country. If I had the time to do stuff like this any more I’d probably just get the ferry to NL and party there instead!April 22, 2011 at 9:46 pm #1238603

so the rumours are going to be getting people driving 200 miles back and forth, on motorways heavily monitored by ANPR cameras..
there’s only a limited part of the UK anyone would have a rats chance in hell of starting off a large illegal rave and from my experiences of the last few I have serious moral misgivings about the whole idea of UK “teknivals” – basically the UK free party scene seems to have become a bunch of people what don’t even particularly like one another but are codependent on drugs and are relatively affluent middle class folk with cars, money for fuel etc, just rinsing any area where the locals and feds don’t have the resources to fight back and stop them taking the piss…
if they resulted in people across areas genuinely becoming true friends (and not just K dealing networks) it would be OK but the last one I went to everyone from EA was camped in one area, the SE England lot in another and no one really even spoke to folk from other regions, I had to go and introduce my EA friends to some old mates from Reading I met…
After the 2006 one in SW England there was so much human shit left behind Defra and Forestry had to declare the place a contaminated area – they also had a special emergency meeting to arrange the cleanup and the time and resources needed meant taking staff away from paying farmers subsidies which were already months late… yet I worked there for 4 years and they (including the proper natural history scientists) didn’t think raves were a big problem until this event…
I don’t have a problem with smaller one night raves which finish at a sensible time and are cleared up afterwards but I think invading a rural area for 3 whole days and leaving it full of shit isn’t good at all.. nor TBH are hundreds of people driving 200+ miles when sleep deprived or on drugs.. I don’t think we have the right to call our 3 day raves “teknivals”, not in comparison to the foreign ones where they get permission to use the land, and have proper toilets, safety checked gensets and in some cases even licenses (Pawel explained it in one of this posts a while back)April 25, 2011 at 1:07 pm #1238608April 25, 2011 at 8:49 pm #1238604

smarter crews avoid shitty suburban areas where there is bound to be muppets causing trouble….
I wouldn’t even say I’m particularly surprised there was a serious sexual assault at the event in SE England – angry yes, but with the sheer level of casual misogyny and simmering anger present in groups of young people today its only a matter of time before things like that become even more common in large unregulated/unwatched groups of people… the same shit (as well as violence of various kinds) happens in other countries too, I’ve read about it on French and Dutch party/lifestyle sites as well..
I think its a sign of the times and if you want to party being in small genuinely friendly groups is the only safe way – even when Disruptions parties started getting a bit bigger they were blighted by idiots causing shit (and then their stack got robbed!)
