THE STRUGGLES OF AN ADULTING RAVER

Raving brings all people of different ages together for the music, culture, and lifestyle. There isn’t a ‘right’ age to experience your first rave and that’s the beauty of it, but once you start there’s no going back. The rush to attend as many events as possible becomes addicting and sometimes real life takes the back burner.

RAVER SPOTLIGHT: PLUR RABBIT

Instagram is a powerful social media platform that connects ravers from all over the world through beautifully presented photos. I love going through event hashtags to reconnect with ravers I had met and traded with when I forget to exchange contact information. Sometimes you’re meant to only cross paths with a person once, but sometimes those small interactions blossom into friendship.

RAVER SPOTLIGHT: MAMA MELISSA

After deciding to spend the night in with her husband, Melissa DeAngeles put on the Matrix expecting to just enjoy the movie, but instead fell in love with something completely different. “There was a scene in a cave and there was a big rave. I looked at that and said, ‘That’s me. I want that!’ and Mark (her husband) looks at me and goes, ‘What?!’ I just love it!” Already falling in love with what raving is all about, the craziness, the lasers, the people, Melissa wanted to experience it all for herself. “It’s like when you walk into the Regency Ballroom,” Melissa looks back on, “It’s smokey, loud, and the floor bounces, it’s one of my favorite things to walk into that!”

GHASTLY: A GHOST WITH MORE IN MIND THAN MOST

We know Ghastly as the edgy character with eyes behind his shades that pierce harder than the knife tattooed on his forearm, but despite his image of an inexplicable ghost- he’s just as human, if not more than anyone else.

You would think that after your first rave every event after that will go smoothly, but there is no escaping some of the problems that are destined to happen. The thing with raver problems…IT JUST NEVER ENDS! After my last article ‘ Raver Problems ‘, there are actually way more problems that we all experience and are pretty common amongst us.

SHOWING YOUR NON RAVER FRIENDS THE JOYS OF RAVE LIFE

It’s no secret ravers have a bad reputation in the “real world”. People often paint a negative picture of what a raver is, and because they don’t like who they think we are, they automatically don’t want to give it a chance. I have seen people who have said they hated EDM and would never go to a rave, but all it took was one event and they were hooked! We all have that one friend who still hasn’t taken the plunge into the rave world.

A RAVER’S THANKFUL LIST FOR THIS THANKSGIVING

Thanksgiving is the time of year that we focus and appreciate the people and memories that we have in our lives that not everyone has. With my busy schedule it’s hard to stop and think about how much I’ve changed this year not only as a raver, but as a person. This year has brought so many wonderful friends into my life, beautiful memories, and many new lessons.

NO RAVER LEFT BEHIND, WELCOME THE RAVE BABIES

I personally love seeing a new to the scene rave baby’s eyes light up as they walk into their first massive festival. It’s almost like experiencing it yourself a for the first time again. The massive crowds, the positive energy flowing around and the craziness and beauty that many stages are known for; it can be an amazing experience exposing someone new to this culture, but what about the people who simply don’t want to welcome the newbies?

KANDI DILEMMA: WHEN IS IT ACCEPTABLE TO SELL?

I love everything about EDM, the EDM community, and its culture…the music, the events, the dancing, the poi spinning, the outfit planning, the people I meet…and I love neon and fluffies and things that light up…and I love kandi.

IT’S TIME TO BE REALISTIC ABOUT THE LA COUNTY RAVE BAN

After the recent deaths of two young ladies at Hard Summer, Los Angeles is moving to ban music festivals from the county. The ban headed by causing uproar between Los Angeles officials and the rave community all over again. The interesting thing is both sides are arguing for the same thing: safer festivals and less tragedies. The only difference is their approach. LA County Board of Supervisors are for a ban on raves at county facilities while festival enthusiasts are calling for a different solution – one that addresses the problem in a more realistic way. So how exactly can we prevent drug related deaths and injuries from occurring?
