Immerse Yourself in the Past
During the first phase of the project exploring London’s Kings Cross (our Manor) as the epicentre of UK rave culture across the 80s, 90s and 00’s we had an incredible opportunity to meet extraordinary names and conduct exclusive interviews. In our opinion, the best moment was discovering that iconic Kings Cross warehouse clubs such as Bagleys, The Cross, and The Key played the host to some of the most exciting sounds and musical innovators of the day.
Back in the day word of mouth was the main way how the clubs got exposed and how people got to know about the upcoming events. Later, when raves became legal people started to exploit their creativity and find different ways on how to engage their target audiences.
KingsXClubland would like to give you an exclusive insight into the 80s, 90s, and 00s rave era by promoting the flyers from the time! Remember, at the time they didn’t have fancy laptops with DIY software to create ingenious looking flyers and posters, people made them by hand.
All flyers presented here are courtesy of Danny Terry from Flying Squad.
