About

FRACTAL XVIII: REVOLUTION PARTYING FOR POWER. *** LINEUP*** UPSTAIRS (4 BANDS!!) - PSYCHEDELIC ROCK, PUNK THE DOWNHILL TOP 10 GOOBIE WOOBIES THE DIVIDING SKY PINK POISON DOWNSTAIRS (DJS) - RAVE, TECHNO, TRANCE, JUNGLE, GABBER MISSY SKYNET SOUNDS LMAC TOAD Exams are over summer has began. Many joys lie ahead of us, but at this time we must take a minute to appreciate the freedoms we have. In many places there are deep systemic injustices which prevent people from being able to express themselves. At this Fractal, we are honouring music that has stood up against the establishment through the eras. We have prepared a stellar lineup of 4 DJs and 4 bands covering free techno, psychedelic trance, Detriot electronica, gabber, jungle, psychedelic rock, punk - to name a few. From the acid house/free rave movement that stood up against the Thatcherite austerities of the 80s, to Detroit techno and it foundation in black music and civil rights, and the psychedelic rock of the 60s aiding the protest against the Vietnam war. The music is uncompromising and rebellious. The music is the medium through which change happens. We must act. That’s why all proceeds from this rave will be going to unicef which will provide aid to children in many regions of the world including Gaza and Sudan. A change won't be seismic, but to us getting 140 people to become aware and donate to a humanitarian charity is something… This party will be powered by @crankedsoundsystem. The Middlesbrough system has been known throughout the region for putting on some of the craziest parties and festivals such as Boomtown and Balter. The boat will be rockin'. This graphic has been handrawn by our amazing artist and promoter Katherine Proctor.
