Preview – The Agony & the Ecstasy

Dave Pearce

Spanning 30 years, this eye-opening three-part documentary series explores the history of rave culture and dance music in the UK.

The pleasure-seeking party people who pioneered the rave scene and those who embraced it at warehouse parties and underground venues across the country discuss its evolution, while archive clips and original reconstructions set to the beat of era-defining electronic tracks tell the story of one of music’s most hedonistic and controversial genres.

The Agony & the Ecstasy – Friday at 9.00pm on Sky Arts & NOW TV
