From next Friday (29th April) theprintspace gallery in London will be hosting an exhibition by Dave Swindells, Nightlife Editor of Time Out Magazine.

The exhibition showcases the Second Summer of Love, the era of 1989-1989 when dance music burst onto the scene in the UK. The exhibition shows how Balearic Beats, a fusion of Chicago house, Euro disco, rock and reggae mixed with the emerging ecstacy-fuelled club scene in Ibiza inspired DJ’s to create a more liberal club scene in London.

The photos and images shows what the club scene was like here in Ibiza at the time – the government had not yet forced the club to put roofs on the clubs and the “clubbers” were a truly mixed bag of eccentrics, locals, young and old.

In these photos you won’t see people texting or tweeting, videoing their mates or posting on Facebook,” explains Swindells. “Nobody had mobile phones, and the only person likely to be taking pictures was the club’s own photographer. So there was nothing else to do but live in the moment, enjoy the parties or watch other people having fun while dancing the whole night“.

To see what club culture in Ibiza and London was like at this time visit “Spirit of Ibiza 89″ at theprintspace Gallery from Friday 29 April to Wednesday 18 May 2011. The opening times are from Monday to Friday 9am –7pm at theprintspace Gallery on 74 Kingsland Road, Shoreditch, London E2 8DL.

For everyone here on Ibiza, the exhbition will also be shown at the International Music Summit at the end of May.
