We unearthed a bunch of photos from old Sydney raves

A couple of months back, we published some footage of a classic Sydney rave from way back in 1996.

A day after we published the story, inthemix received a message from a guy called Neil Keene, who told us that he was the man behind the camera at that “2036” party. Not only that, but Keene told us he was sitting on a goldmine of footage, photos, and flyers from the golden age of Sydney raving.

We’ve already shared a stack of those vintage rave flyers, and now we’ve gone through and raided Neil’s collection of photos — and they’re a real treat. The pictures were taken throughout 1996 and 1997, at classic events like Prophecy and Utopia.
