The Rolling Stones’ All Night Rave took place at the Alexandra Palace in London on June 26, 1964. Organized by The Rolling Stones’ fan club, the show coincided with the release date of the band’s hit “It’s All Over Now”. The Stones joined a blues-rich bill that featured John Lee Hooker, John Mayall, Alexis Korner, and Jimmy Powell and the Five Dimensions.

While the Fab Four were still fresh-faced and fancy-free, The Rolling Stones represented the darker side of the pop invasion of the sixties. Founders Brian Jones, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards found themselves in front of a huge crowd, willing to go to war for the band. Brian Jones said in a statement after the rave: “As the excitement mounts girls surge down to the footlights, their screams swamping our amplifiers.”

The band unwittingly held one of the first ever raves in London, and with it, sealed their reputation as one of the most unruly and uncompromising artists of rock and roll history. In the images, there are candid shots of sixties teens dancing their night away as well as perfect shots of Brian Jones, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards in front of the baying crowd.
