UPDATE 18.3.11: Most commenters are saying this was pre-Castlemorton,and we just noticed a reference to Lechlade (misspelled as Lechale) being the previous weekend in this newspaper article, so we’ve changed the title. If anyone can confirm the date, please let us know in the comments! Thanks 🙂
Eric sent us this clipping from the paper. Nice one 🙂
A mate of ours remembers that the police turned up at some point to try and shut it down, realised it was too big to stop, and buggered off again 🙂 …
Here’s some more memories:
a guy pulled a gun on someone and spiral stopped the music and said that it wasn’t on, so get the fuck out of here.. all the ravers boo’d the gun guy until he had no choice but to leave.
music back on, party continued.
it was a pretty crazy party all told. getting there was quite a mission as well, climbing up that hill. I think the soundsystem caught fire at the beginning, or some wires did anyway. and then eventually it all kicked off. great place to see the sunrise as well.
edit: also pretty funny to see people walking their dogs in the morning. what must they have thought!
Does anyone have an exact date for this? Or any more detailed memories?
