THOUSANDS of lockdown weary party-goers raved into the early hours last-night at one of Britain’s boujee forest raves.
The Restricted Forest event is one of Lancashire’s biggest festivals and organisers branded it ‘one hell of a party’ that saw top DJ’s and MC’s perform, Laser and light shows, fire breathers, circus performers, stilt walkers, dance performers.
The vibe was early-90s Dance and House, Club Classics, Electronic, House, Old Skool, Retro House with world-renowned artists performing some of the biggest dance tracks of all time.
The event was held in Blackburn’s Witton Park – an area that saw Covid cases spiral out of control earlier this year.
Tickets sold out fast and ravers were said to offering to pay up to £100 for a ticket on Saturday morning just to gain entry to the exclusive event.
The festival was forced to be rescheduled last minute due to the Government’s lockdown restrictions, so was moved to the end of July – and party-goers let the town know just how happy they were to be free to rave for the first time in almost 18-months.
Restricted Forest promoter Zander Lawrenson said he was happy to host a large event after the tough lockdown imposed on Brits to tackle Covid-19.
“The Prime Minister said step four of the roadmap will lift all legal limits on social contact including restrictions on large events, which couldn’t have come at a better time as we’ve had no income for these events coming in at all over the last 18 months.”
