Hundreds of Gatecrash Airbnb House for illegal night rave

Families were horrified as more than a hundred revelers descended on an Airbnb in a sleepy village for an illegal all-night rave.

Police were called to a luxurious four-bed house in Bearsted, Kent on Saturday after a scuffle broke out during the party.

One group has reportedly rented the property for £ 800 a night, which has a jacuzzi and movie theater, for the wild party.

It is believed they made the reservation despite its Airbnb page stating that no parties or events are allowed.

The house is listed on the vacation rental website as having enough space to accommodate up to 10 people.

But neighbors reported that hundreds of revelers showed up at the house on May 29.

Residents said they heard muffled music from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. the next morning and said surrounding roads were blocked.

Officers were reportedly called three times, only arriving after hearing that a fight had broken out in the house.

A resident living on the road where the party took place said that such an event was “unheard of” in the village, located near Maidstone.

She told Kent Online: “People just got down there and kept coming all night.

“It was just muffled music all night long, screaming. It was just awful.

“There was a fight that started, there was blood. I don’t know what happened to the poor boy who was on the floor.”

Officers in five police cars accompanied by dogs showed up at the party after hearing about the brawl, according to the neighbor.
