Rave Rituals, Tobi Kyeremateng, UK 2021, 15 min. 2 sec.

‘The function, the dance, the link-up, the rave, the Big Night Out! The many names we dedicate to the rituals we practice here. This is your church, and the music is your gospel.’

From the cold queues and overpriced cloakrooms to the sweatbox basement clubs and sticky floors, raving culture is the livewire that pumps through our cities and gives us some of our favourite memories.

Combining music, sound, interviews and narrative, Rave Rituals relives the rituals of raving culture through the pulse of UK House and Garage, told by two raving veterans that lived through it all.
