Better grab some glowsticks, you’re going to need them.

The Geneva International Film Festival returns later this year and it’s bringing with it a one-of-a-kind virtual experience that takes you back in time to the very first rave parties where you can dance to the sounds of old-school acid house music.

Produced by the immersive documentary production East City Films in partnership with the British Film Institute (BFI) and Coventry City of Culture, In Pursuit of Repetitive Beats by Darren Emerson is an interactive art installation that transports you back to the year 1989, the proverbial birth of the rave scene in the United Kindom.

The installation is composed of a “rave corridor,” an exhibition, and the aforementioned virtual rave experience.

“From poster-strewn bedrooms and pirate radio stations to a police headquarters and on to warehouses reverberating to the beat of Acid House music, In Pursuit of Repetitive Beats takes you back to the thrills of the first rave parties thanks to a resounding immersive experience,” states an official release.

“This interactive documentary pays tribute to the cultural impact of the rave scene on a whole generation and its seminal influence on today’s electronic cultures.”
