Abstract

Nightlife, the night-time economy and ‘alternative’ culture has been a source of academic contestation over recent years, with differing views as to the direction and meaning of the contemporary drift of law and policy that serves to regulate this area of social and cultural life. Further, there have so far been few attempts to theorise the nature of change. This article aims to highlight some key theoretical underpinnings that can facilitate an understanding of the kinds of regulatory innovation that pervades nightlife and alternative cultural forms. Using two case studies – free or alternative festivals and Form 696 – it will specifically draw on the concepts of disciplinary power and juridification as a way of theorising both the acceleration of regulatory forms and its impact on the production of alternative culture.
