Head back to the 90s rave scene with these amazing photos from The Haçienda

The energy is palpable...

Photographer Peter Walsh has released amazing photos from the bygone era of The Haçienda to celebrate a recent talk at The Subculture Archive on Carnaby Street last week (20th July).

The infamous Manchester nightclub is considered by many as the birthplace of acid house, and Walsh captured the club at the peak of its popularity, before the police cracked down on the venue.

Speaking about the photos, Walsh said, “I knew that I was right in the epicentre of a massive culture shift. It was an incredible time – life changing for everyone involved and people thought anything was possible”.

Check out Walsh’s photos of The Haçienda below.
