I spent the best part of saturday evening and well into sunday morning having a great time throwing shapes and having a bloody good time and all for nothing. Free parties are not a new thing but they play such an important role not just for having a good time but showing how people can go out and take control of there own entertainment. They also give you back the right to enjoy yourself where you like and how you like, within reason.
Dancing and partying in the trees is a great experience but it’s also a shame that they need to be so discreet. The last thing we want to do is upset the middle class eh!! What I get annoyed at is the fact that many are stopped or never take place due to the location being not suitable for no other reason than somebody will complain. But what is the complaint? noise? or is it the fact that a group of people are having a good time but nobody is making any money out of it?
People also object to a lack of control and order even though there is hardly ever any bad feeling at these events. Also there can be no objection to lack of care for the environment or litter as mostly the people who put on these events are normally a lot more concerned with the environment than your local night club owner. I have yet to see a night club manager cleaning up puke and kebabs from the streets outside their club.
Having a good time should never cost you a penny.
