Techno Is Great, Especially On Halloween

Techno Is Great, Especially On Halloween

Another gruesome Halloween has passed and the countdown to the most scary, crazy night of the year has started again. So how was your Halloween? We went to Club 414 in Brixton, where the ‘Under My Feet’ techno night was taking place. Here’s why techno is a ‘must’ on Halloween.   Words: Mattia Bosio, Subeditor: Cerys Kenneally  1 .Techno events are gathering places. You could say all the events are gathering places, that’s the purpose of every single event. But techno is something more.
