Loud music could be heard still blaring out across the countryside at 9am this morning as police were called to the illegal rave close to Lower Heyford, near Bicester.

Footage from the rave shows crowds of people partying throughout the night and into this morning, with huge sound systems, balloons, and strobe lights inside the barn.

Police did not say if the barn was derelict or not but video footage appeared to show a number of logs being stored inside the barn with ravers partying around them.

Oxford Mail:

Thames Valley roads policing officers were on the scene shortly after 9am where the rave could still be heard blaring across the countryside.

Residents in nearby villages such as Upper Heyford commented online that they could hear the music despite being more than a mile away.

A video posted by police shows crowds of people leaving the barn this morning as officers were forced to close off a section of the B4030 road between Caulcott and Lower Heyford, near Bicester.

The video posted on Twitter by TVP Roads Policing also shows a number of cars backed up along the rural road.

The force said the section of the road had to be closed off 'to ensure public safety' around the 'unlicensed music event'.
