    Default Throwing unlicenced parties in the UK

    hey guys,
    Been thinking about throwing parties today as it's obviously something that's regarded as important kick starting exposure for yourself as a dj, however I was wondering about throwing illegal raves.

    As far as i'm aware, you can't get in trouble if you organise a party through word of mouth and I know ways of doing this, but has anyone got any experience on here from throwing parties or raves away from civilisation?
    There Is obviously a lot of planning involved I know but getting advise of people who are experienced would be greatly appreciated!

    Also I'd prefare opinions of people from the UK for obvious reasons

    If you don't have a licence, you're getting in trouble. Simples.

    There are laws in the UK that prohibit a) drinking alcohol outside of a private residence, and b) playing loud music without an entertainment licence.

    If you're asking whether or not you're going to get caught, that's a different story, but either way you're breaking the law. You're better off finding a commercial property that's been on the market for a while (and isn't selling), and begging the owner if you can borrow it for a night. Apply for a temporary licence (~30 if I remember rightly), and that way you're covered.

    You can get a licence for any property, the only question is whether or not it meets health code regulations, and/or whether or not you can persuade the committee to make exceptions.

    If you are trespassing on property or land in order to have a rave then be aware that you could be committing a criminal offence

    Doesn't the UK have specific anti-rave laws from the old acid house days, mates have told me stories of being chased by police helicopters after outdoor raves.

    You Island's too crowded put a party on in a field and and someones going to hear it somewhere.

    When I lived in the UK we found plenty of legal venues to put parties on in it just takes a little more work.
