5,000 Ravers Attend Positively Received Illegal Party In Small Spanish Town

A small Spanish village reportedly held a six-day illegal rave that was positively received by the mayor as “well organized” and good for the economy.

On December 30, residents of the Granada province La Peza were sent an influx of cars, tents, and seven stages for a free party near their town with a population of only 1,200 people.

But while many cities and towns would have immediately shut down the illegal gathering, the mayor seemed impressed by the organization and even worked with the local police to keep an eye on the ravers rather than shutting it down.

Initially, a small number of people were arrested for drug-related offenses or resisting authority once local police were notified. But the town decided to keep watch over the rave rather than intervene and remove thousands of partiers by force. Vehicles were the main concern with barricades used to block cars from accessing the site and a helicopter ensuring anyone arrived on foot.

The mayor, Fernando Álvarez stated, “Truthfully, if I knew who had organized it, I would hire them to plan our village fiesta. It was like a small town.”

Other locals also acknowledged the rave attracted media attention, helping to generate revenue for the town economy.

Álvarez continued, “We got six days of entertainment out of it, but we also recognize that this incident has given us a bit of publicity and put us on the map… We’re here if anyone wants to visit us.”
