One of the longest-running electronic music festivals in the world, Mayday traditionally takes place on 30 April each year at Dortmund’s Westfalenhallen, welcoming the great and good of the dance music scene.
The 1994 event, which took place 25 years ago today, was no exception, with a lineup including Westbam, Marusha, Carl Cox, Frankie bones, LTJ Buken, Ron Trend, Miss Djax, Pascal F.E.O.S. and a myriad of top names, with some 24,000 in attendance.
With the music of the time taking on a distinctly harder edge, the video footage from that event is, as you might expect, brilliantly insane.
As the introduction to the video warns: “The fire is ablaze. All history of raves has been a training only (sic). Here comes… RAVE OLYMPIA!”
Sehr sehr geil… 🙂
