What are raves?
Raves can be such an exciting time as well as a place to bond with your best friends or “rave, family,” as that is the nickname that it is called. Raves are fun because it is nothing but good vibes, and everyone there is just there for the same reason, to have a good time. For us ravers, a rave is a place where you can let go of all your worries and troubles and just have a good time and vibe out to the music and the atmosphere. Raves are supposed to be pure fun. It’s like the build-up to them is so exciting too. You are counting down the days until you are under the rave lights with your friends to hear your favorite DJ perform. In the rave community, we believe in “P.L.U.R,” which stands for Peace Love Unity Respect. It’s just saying, let’s all love and respect one another and let us all unite and live in peace. We genuinely believe that if the world practiced this more, then the world would be a much better place. Raves came from 80’s dance parties, and when Techno emerged from Europe and House music emerged from America, you put the two together, and you have yourself a pretty fun party that you most likely are going to want to dance all night long. In the late 1980s, raves started to emerge in Los Angeles and San Francisco. Today, there are raves all over the world, with a majority being in the United States.
