The U.K. enacts the Entertainments Act of 1990 in an attempt to curb the rave scene in the country. This came after large gatherings started to be organized, based on a model brought from Ibiza (where ecstasy use had become prevalent in the late 1980s). Parliament introduced the 1990 bill to try and stop these events by allowing for a fine of up to £20'000 and up to 6 months of imprisonment for the organizers.
