An ethnographic investigation into the culture and people of the UK free party (illegal rave) scene in the twenty first century
This study first reviewed the existing literature, used this to inform and shape the development of a framework for a primary research project, which collected both quantitative and qualitative data from a cohort of almost 500 respondents, and undertook an initial analysis of the data acquired. This framework had to find ways to acquire the highest quality data, from a cohort notoriously difficult to access, whilst building in safeguards and mechanisms to protect both researcher and interlocutors. The methodologies employed have begun to shape a new framework for future work with countercultural communities.
