The Ultimate Guide to Old Skool Rave at Glastonbury Festival

Glastonbury 2016 Full Line UpIt’s back to the old skool more than ever this year at Glastonbury 2016.  Most of the DJs listed should be playing old skool house, acid or hardcore, but beware of some of them playing nu skool breaks or modernised versions of classics.  There is also always loads of jungle at Glastonbury, we won’t list all of that here as it is blasting out of many shops,bars and venues across the site.

In previous years the 88to98 team have seen 2 Bad Mice, Nicky Blackmarket, Jerome Hill,  Fast Eddie, Hyper On Experience and Mark Archer (Altern-8) amongst others. 2016 has a bumper crop of rave veterans playing, although we can’t guarantee that Carl Cox will play a set similar to the legendary Fantazia at the SECC for Nov 93……
