Cataloguing one of Manchester’s cultural hotspots, The Haçienda, Peter J Walsh immersed himself into the legendary landmark with his latest book, “RAVE ONE”.

The third in a trio of IDEA dancing youth books alongside Ibiza ’89 and Spike Island, “RAVE ONE” showcases the iconic institution in all its glory. Sweat-soaked scenes, raucous atmospheres, and the starting point of historical music movements, Walsh captures it all.
A cornerstone to the early acid house scene in Manchester, The Haçienda was the epicentre of a culture shift. Peter J Walsh was always a punter before house music arrived on the scene, when he wasn’t taking photographs, he’d still be there. Living in the shadow of challenging political ruling, The Haçienda was a transformative space where youths would come together for a sense of escapism, togetherness and cooperation.
RAVE ONE by Peter J Walsh will be available in-store and online from 15 OCT 21.
