Renaissance 20th Anniversary Blog

For me, the arrival of Renaissance in 1992 signalled the start of the second phase of the acid house explosion. After the ‘Summers Of Love’ of ’88 & ’89 things had started to deteriorate as every Tom, Dick & Harry now thought they could put on a rave and the scene started to attract some unsavoury elements. Poorly organised events held purely in the interest of making money were fast becoming the norm and the dream was in danger of turning sour. Renaissance were really the first to try to take things to the next level bringing a certain style and panache to their parties with quality first and foremost on the agenda. They raised the bar and set a new standard by which all others would be judged. I remember sitting up ‘in the gods’ at their 2nd birthday at the Que Club in Birmingham looking down over the lavish production full of celestial cherubs emanating from fluffy cotton wool clouds above 2000+ clubbers all in their own little heavens. It was a sight to behold and one which finally made me realise that acid house meant business and was here to stay.

Renaissance were always in it for the long haul as this years 20th anniversary parties prove. Of course, there’s been a lot of water under the bridge since those early days. Times have changed. But one thing has always stayed true. From it’s original home at Venue 44 in Mansfield to the stately home events, the tours of Australasia to Pacha & Privilege in Ibiza, from the endless revered compilations to Media in Nottingham & The Cross in London…. Renaissance remains one of clubland’s most enduring & iconic brands. Happy 20th! Here’s to the next two decades :-)
