The Back to the Roots 12 hour festival at The Hangar Warehouse was a revival of house music's halcyon days from the 'second summer of love' in 1994 until the mid-1990s, known to fans as Old Skool.

More than a 1,000 ravers travelled from all four corners of the UK to see a line up of DJs not seen in decades. Fabio and Grooverider headlined the festival and were preceded by Shades of Rhythm, Rat Pack, Altern 8, 2 Bad Mice and there was a live PA by Baby D.

Clint, from Cardiff, said: "Back in the early 1990s I used be a stage dancer at the raves so when I saw all these DJs on the same line up, I knew I had come up and enjoy it.

"The vibe is great here, everyone is so friendly. Wolverhampton was always a great night out."
