People in Sheffield were left furious after a second illegal rave this year saw loud music from an event in Loxley disturb huge parts of the city throughout all of Saturday night.
Twitter users took to social media to complain about the event and police were called after locals could hear musical beats early on Sunday, which South Yorkshire Police confirmed continued until 11am.
Jamie Rastrick, 21, a student who lives in nearby Crookes was due to work on a dissertation on Sunday morning.
He said: ‘I’m fuming, I had a dedicated day for dissertation, but I was rudely interrupted by the drumbeats, 4am, 4 in the morning for God’s sake! it went on until like 7 so I couldn’t sleep all night.’
In February this year, there was another rave that had disturbed areas of Sheffield as locals took to twitter and reddit to vent their frustrations at the frequency of these occurrences.
Mr Rastrick was also disturbed by the event in February. He said he was ‘fed up’ with the nuisance and said he fears there will be more events in coming weeks when weather is expected to improve.
He said: ‘I was here when the one back in February happened, I had university from 9am the following morning, something has to be done about this.’
Another student living in Crookes, Natasha Goudarzi, 19, was also disturbed by the incidents and she said: ‘I went to sleep at like 1:30 there were also people outside my house, and they were talking really loud.’
However, she said she was confused about where the noise was coming from.
She said: ‘There’s no clubs up here, so I think it was more of a house party thing, or like a really big friend group get – together thing.’
Reddit users noticed the rhythm of the drumbeats were the same as the rave in February and some asked if this will happen other month.
South Yorkshire Police said: ‘Officers attended the area but were unable to identify the location of where the noise was coming from. The noise was believed to have stopped around 11am.’
Police have asked anyone with information to contact them on 101 quoting incident number 244 of 23 April.
