The system has collapsed and we have survived, let the new world begin!
A refuge for the lawless, AREA 404 welcomes all to their newly squatted, radical revolutionary paradise. As light bleeds through the cracks in the walls, the residents dance faster and harder than ever. The Last Gang in Town and Earache Records showcase a mixture of Punk, Ska and Metal at ‘Hangar 161’. The sound of Hardcore and Stomping Tekno bellows from within ‘The Scrapyard’ whilst ‘The Grid’ and an array of late night venues open their doors for the new skool Junglists, and forward-thinking Garage and Bass heads.
The inhabitants are turning the mountains of scrap and defunct machinery from the once brutally imposing structures of civilization, into functional engines that carve innovative and glorious new possibilities into the landscape. On the horizon sits the mechanical beating heart of AREA 404. A glorious feat of engineering, working tirelessly to pump clean air back into the atmosphere, as its turbines rotate and its pistons fire, a breath of hope for a new beginning in a new world blasts from its pipes.
The rave revival is ON and anything goes in this self-governed anarchistic community.
