Hangar 13

Hangar 13

Hangar 13 was a Scottish hardcore rave venue in Ayr, Scotland. Situated in the former Pavilion dance hall situated on Ayr's Low Green. During the early 1990s, raves situated at this old Pavilion became the target of much police and media interest after three alleged ecstasy-related deaths occurred.cite web

The club was eventually shut down, although there was a "unity campaign" to keep the venue open. The deaths may have been due to the use of more dangerous dance drugs such as MDA rather than MDMA. [cite web | url=http://www.obsolete.com/ecstasy/scotland.html | title=Raving in Scotland] Other factors included overheating, lack of drinking water and other amenities at these often "ad hoc", unlicensed events. The tragic events that happened at Hangar 13 precipitated an amendment to the law that licences were required for the safeguarding of the health and safety of those attending similar events.cite web
