It's reported that police had to stop access to roads around the party, which took place on Easter weekend, but that ravers still found a way in via back roads and by being dropped off in taxis.

Local residents say they saw a "cavalcade" of cars making their way to the rave at one point as well as being able to hear "every beat of music" on the morning of Easter Sunday.
