- First Night
- Get Involved!
In 1994 the Criminal Justice Act effectively outlawed raves, banning public gatherings around amplified music characterised by ‘the emission of a succession of repetitive beats.’
With a live DJ and video, Beats tells the story of Johnno McCreadie, a teenager living in a small suburban Scottish town at the time of the act. A coming-of-age story exploring rebellion, apathy, and the irresistible power of gathered youth.
Presented as part of the Summer in the City Festival.
