Don’t you just wish you could attend every festival? I swear every year more new events get announced that give me the worst FOMO if I’m not able to go. However, all of this has definitely taught me how to prioritize which events mean the most to me, and do what I can to get myself to those festivals above everything else. There are a lot of factors that I take into account when choosing which festivals to attend each year, as I’m sure there are for most people. However, if we’re being totally honest, I usually know right when I hear a festival/lineup announcement is made whether or not I’ll be in attendance.
So was the case for Lights All Night this year. I’d been hearing about Lights All Night since I started raving three years ago, but had always ended up somewhere else come New Year’s weekend. However, this year I decided that I’m going to make the trip out to Dallas Market Hall on December 28th-29th to finally experience this festival. Here are the three main reasons why I made the decision, and why you should too!
1. The Lineup Is Incredible
2. The Festival Is Over the Weekend

3. It's a Texas Festival that Has Stood the Test of Time
It’s no secret that Texas has been in a drought, in terms of festivals, these last couple of years. Multiple major Texas festivals have shut down recently, and there weren't very many options in Texas this year. This is such a shame because I know Texas has a strong and diverse electronic music community, and they definitely deserve some larger and better events. Lights All Night is one of the festivals that has remained a solid part of the Texas rave scene for several years now, so that has to mean it’s successful and worth checking out!
Trying out new festivals and experiencing incredible music in new places are a few of my favorite things to do, and I can’t wait to spend my last weekend of the year doing exactly that!
Halloween is fast approaching, and we all know the best part of this holiday is choosing the ultimate costumes! As ravers, we are no strangers to dressing up, and Halloween is an awesome time to show off our style skills. There are so many directions you can go in when deciding what to be for Halloween, so we’re giving you some suggestions to make your decision a little easier.
Out Of This World
Extraterrestrial themes are huge in the rave world, and Halloween is the best excuse to dress up as a sexy alien or a house-loving astronaut. There are also a ton of opportunities for couples and group costumes that fit this theme! Build an alien squad with your friends in the Cosmic Chaos Alien Costume and the Solstice Kiss Holo Set, or explore the unknown in matching astronaut suits. Add some glitter, and you will surely have an out-of-this-world Halloween experience!
Embrace Your Wild Side
Feeling wild this spooky season? Cowgirl costumes are super cute and perfect for any Halloween event. Embrace your wild side and let loose with a cowboy hat and your best chaps, or make it glam!
Certain costumes will never go out of style. Classic costumes come back every year because they are timeless. If you’re feeling scary this Halloween, try a holographic skeleton or a seductive devil costume. If you’re going for a flirtier vibe, you can never go wrong with the Team Techno Cheerleader outfit. This fit is a fun take on the basic cheerleader costume! You can make any of the classics your own with glitter, accessories, and other modern twists.
Have a legendary Halloween dressed as your favorite mythical creature! Fairies, elves and unicorns are not only charming characters, but they are also very trendy right now. These Fractal Fantasy Fairy Wings will transform any outfit into an enchanting fairy ensemble. You could also pair this Rainbow Unicorn Costume with some sparkly fishnets for a dazzling festival look!
Ravers love to dress up year-round. But if there's one thing that we don't get to do often, it's bring the spooky vibes with scary costumes around Halloween! This time of year is the perfect time to show off your spooky side, with costumes that are gory, creepy, or all around terrifying.
No matter what you decide to be this year, you can’t go wrong. As long as you’re feeling like your best self, you’re going to slay this Halloween!
