Amnesia House

Amnesia was one of the first English rave / acid house organisations of illegal warehouse parties. The name Amnesia House originates from Ibiza and was for years synonymous with the Balearic rave scene .

The first festival took place in 1988 at Canal Road, Coventry. It was a small party with approximately 200 party people. The organizers of the first Amnesia House parties were Bambam and Neville 's brother Kieran. At the second party in Coventry the police interupted the party and this forced the organisers to slow things down a little bit, but after a break Neville joined the organisation and this resulted in a third party. This time a legal one.

After a couple of semi-legal parties they found in 1990 a location which was allowed by the police. These parties In the "Sky Blue Connection' were held six time in 1990 and top DJ's were present, such as Man Parris and Doc Scott, who joined the parties from the beginning. Connection After these six popping parties, this venue was closed and they decided to go to the 'The Eclipse' in Coventry .

The Eclipse was the first club in England which was allowed to remain open all night and untill 1992 six parties were held and they all were an enormous succes. In the same year they also started to have parties in Shelly's Lazer Drome in Strokestown on Trent, but this parties stopped after 18 months when Shelly's was closed. The flyer on the left is from the first party in Shelly's at February 16, 1991

The next step was a party at Donnington Park, where 7,500 people showed up. This was a great success, but unfortunately the sound system had problems. This problem came back four times in a row and after these four parties they decided to stop at this location. After these these parties in Donnington several parties were organised, but disagreements within the organization, which of course had to do with money, resulted in the last party in november 1993.
