The Eighty Eight Podcast | Episode #04 | Rave at he Cave

Famous Venue in Elephant Castle 1988

Early Acid House initiates may remember the Rave at the Cave. A mechanics railway archway in Elephant Castle, South London. A venue which hosted a series of iconic events at the height of the Second Summer of Love 1988. Attracting up-for-it party enthusiasts from all corners of the city. Two of the original promoters DJ EllisDee & Steve Whyte (DJ Chalk E White) share their untold stories. This small underground venue is widely ignored by history. Podcast host Wayne Anthony attended most of the events staged there. Rave at the Cave was brought to dramatic closure when raided by a police squad that rolled up on a train. Accompanying the raiding party was investigative TV news program World in Action. On that very night across London in Aldgate East, Wayne Anthony and partner Andrew were holding their first Genesis’88 event.

Host: Wayne Anthony | Class of 88
