"I discovered the Internet in 1992, in the pre-Mosaic days. Then, it was like a huge BBS. I remember describing it to someone as being dark ... I felt as I navigated the Net that I was groping around in an unlit world. It was quite wond'rous."

The summer of 1992 was the honeymoon period for the marriage of ravers and travellers. The culmination of these festi-raves was an event held at Castlemorton at the end of May. Estimates of the numbers present vary from 25,000 to 40,000; for many there it was the ultimate party. The media depiction, however, was of a marauding invasion and the public outrage sowed the seeds of the Criminal Justice Act 1994.
