Coming Up is a fast-paced, authentic drama about the rave scene in London in 1990, as a pirate radio station tries to survive against the turbulent backdrop of Thatcher's Britain. Old friends Rob (Aaron Fontaine, Mark (Taser Hassan) and Ash (Jade Davidson) started up pirate station Meltdown through a shared love of the music.
But when the Department of Trade and Industry, rival station Ruff and Rob's affair with DJ Sugar (Helen Russell-Clark) threatens everything they've built they have to find a way to pull together and save Meltdown.
Also starring Tamer Hassan, Mr Nice, Brian Bovell, Gillian Taylforth and iconic rave acts like Rebel MC, Shut Up And Dance, Ratpack, Slipmatt and The Ragga Twins, this will be the first film to really capture the illegal parties phenomenon - which occurred at a time which was incredibly important in British social history.
The rave scene in the late 80s/early 90s was an an exciting era, where the explosion of underground parties became rebellion through music... and it spawned raving as we know it today.
