EXPRESS YOURSELF: HOOPS AREN’T JUST FOR KIDS [VIDEO]

EXPRESS YOURSELF: HOOPS AREN’T JUST FOR KIDS [VIDEO]

Flow arts have always been a huge part of the festival scene. People practice all kinds of different flow arts from swinging poi around and those crazy LED hula hoops to gloving and orbiting. Despite the stigma that surrounds gloving, it is such an incredible form of self-expression and a true art. I had always loved watching glovers at festivals, but I never really understood how much joy they brought to people, and never thought about actually becoming a flow artist myself.

20 AMAZING FACES FROM NOCTURNAL’S 20TH ANNIVERSARY

20 AMAZING FACES FROM NOCTURNAL’S 20TH ANNIVERSARY

What makes Insomniac one of the best would be their emphasis on the importance of its headliners: YOU! By attending their festivals, we make it possible for them to exist and allow for them to put on some of the best productions to date. Without us, who would they make the insane fireworks display for? Who would the performers dance for? Who would the DJ’s play for? Without the people of Insomniac, nothing would be possible.

NO RAVER LEFT BEHIND, WELCOME THE RAVE BABIES

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?

TAKING OFF THE GLOVES: THE NEGATIVITY ATTACHED TO GLOVING

TAKING OFF THE GLOVES: THE NEGATIVITY ATTACHED TO GLOVING

Nowadays LED lights aren’t limited to just the stages. Festivals and art seem to not only walk hand and hand but to blend together seamlessly. So it’s no surprise that one of the more widely practiced and appreciated parts of rave culture is flow arts. However where as some like hooping, or orbiting are accepted, some like gloving are being picked apart for carrying a negative connotation.

WHY 2015 IS THE YEAR OF DILLON FRANCIS

By the end of 2015, there will be one name everyone in the electronic community will be talking about saying it was “his/her year”. 2015 thus far has been incredible for the scene in terms of new music and its ever-changing landscape of artists and sounds, and so many names have continued to build off of their previous success with others leapfrogging high into the spotlight.

THE ULTIMATE RAVE CHALLENGE: CAN YOU DO IT?

THE ULTIMATE RAVE CHALLENGE: CAN YOU DO IT?

Whether or not your smartphone has its place in a rave has been the subject of debate. We all shake our heads at photos of people who are fixated on their phones at a concert, but most of us are guilty of doing it at some point. After all, there’s nothing better than a video to remind you months or years after the event of the feels you experienced at the moment (that is, if you could hold your phone still and keep from dancing!)

HEALTH AND SAFETY: IS AN EDM TASK FORCE A GOOD ANSWER?

HEALTH AND SAFETY: IS AN EDM TASK FORCE A GOOD ANSWER?

Following the deaths of two Hard Summer attendees, LA county created an “electronic music task force” with the intent to create guidelines on how festivals can keep attendees safe. While it is still unclear what exactly this will entail, it can be assumed from their regulation of HARD Day of The Dead (limiting capacity, restricting festival hours and raising the age limit) that their methods will be similar to those used all across the scene.

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.

5 REASONS WHY EDM BECOMING MAINSTREAM ISN’T ALL BAD

5 REASONS WHY EDM BECOMING MAINSTREAM ISN’T ALL BAD

We’ve all heard the phrase, if not uttered the words ourselves.  This is one argument or statement that we can’t seem to get enough of in our scene.  Whether it’s judging fellow ravers for their choice in artists, or us protesting the mainstream culture and asking everyone if they’ve heard of “so and so” because they’re the “best group ever” right now.

SELLING OUT: FROM COUNTER TO POP CULTURE

SELLING OUT: FROM COUNTER TO POP CULTURE

“I haven’t listened to him since he became ‘main stage cheese’. Ever since he sold out to produce ‘festival bangers’ none of his tracks have been true [insert genre here] or has he put any of [insert genre here] into his sets.” How many times have we heard a friend or fellow EDM enthusiast say something similar? Selling out is something you can almost guarantee every producer may get accused of especially when they start experimenting with new sounds and styles.
