If you happened to stumble upon a peculiar line-up of people, one might assume your initial judgement to be not that of an illegal rave, but unfortunately, such is not the world we live in. At least not in England anyways.
Police were called to a venue when some overly cautious neighborhood worriers mistook a bunch of seniors for a group of mischievous brats disobeying covid rules with an illegal rave. Rather than delinquents, police arrived on scene to find an elderly group of 80 to 90 year olds queuing up to get their covid vaccines.
Maybe the elbow throwin’ was caused by line cutters rather than moshing. Or perhaps they were bumpin’ The Inkspots a tad loud because the cold was interfering with the hearing aids. Whatever the reason police were called, they quickly realized their presence was not necessary and left the retirees to bumble about in peace.
Its important to note, three people got arrested for throwing an illegal rave on New Years Eve. Some upstanding citizens trashed a church that was said to be close to where this happened, so from that perspective, the neighborhood concern is not entirely unwarranted. Gabber is popular in the area, so it makes sense they don’t want to take any chances.
