Police break up illegal rave

AN ILLEGAL rave in western Slovakia attended by 300 people was closed down by police.

The private news agency SITA reported that all of the revellers had left a meadow close to Borský Mikuláš village, Senica district, by the morning of July 8.

According to Martin Korch, Trnava district police spokesman, police cut off power to the illegal rave and appealed to the crowd to leave the area. Korch said that most of the 300 people at the rave had already left during the night. Police did not have to use force against the participants.

The techno fans arrived at the field on the evening of July 6. The party was a continuation of a Czech event called CzechTech, which the Czech police closed down. Like the Slovak event, CzechTech was not announced to the authorities in advance and it took place on private property. About 15,500 people attended the Czech event.

The area close to Borský Mikuláš belongs to a local agricultural cooperative. The area is also a nature reservation, where camping is prohibited.
