non-stop dancing to the backdrop of alternating mechanically reproduced songs, has been analysed from many points of view. Although perspectives have revolved mostly around the actors of the phenomenon, its locations also received attention by researchers. Parties were often located in brownfield areas – abandoned and run-down former industrial spaces. Those kinds of spaces provided isolation, not only of sound but also social, much welcomed by the hedonistic and transgressive character of parties, not unusual for situations of cathartic and non-structured dancing. Comparative analysis of two focal points of the phenomenon, New York in the 1970s and Manchester in the 1980s and 90s, as well as of contemporary Zagreb, where the author of this paper actively performs as DJ, a party's musical selector, all led to the conclusion that the frequency and specific nature of brownfield parties must be result of something more than just the practicality of the ruin. By reviewing theories that can be extended to cover both the party- and brownfieldphenomena, the concept of assemblage, as it was postulated by Deleuze and Guattari, offered most by way of explaining the party-brownfield connection, appearing worldwide and ending in many different ways.
