I’ve always said that going to raves is like running a marathon. We don’t realize it because we’re always having so much fun, but it’s actually pretty tiring. To reach the finish line—which, in rave terms, would be the headliner—you need to make sure you’re looking after yourself.
To help you, here are our top tips for how to stay comfortable at raves so you can party safer and for longer.
When you’re in the crowd and in direct sunlight you end up getting dehydrated much faster. To combat this, make sure you’re drinking plenty of water. Even if you’re not feeling thirsty, just consciously take a few sips every now and again.
Get your hands on a rave hydration backpack so you can fill up on water and not need to leave the crowd to refresh yourself. Look out for free water booths scattered around the rave!
My rave friends and I call them ‘Boogie Breaks’! When we start to feel a little tired we like to exit the crowd, find a place to lay down, have a catch up on what we’ve seen so far and maybe even meet some new rave friends.
Rave responsibly and always listen to your body, don’t push it beyond its limits or you might run into the risk of needing to visit the medic tent or leave early. If you need a break to recharge, don't be afraid to say so!
Remember to Eat
Would you go to the gym on an empty stomach? Well, the same goes for raves. Dancing is as much a sport, it burns so much of your energy!
Fueling your body will assure you can stay at your peak levels of fun. Even if you’re not feeling hungry, on your next break just pass by a food vendor and grab a snack or smoothie, your body will thank you.
Opt for Comfortable Rave Wear
Wear light, comfortable and breathable rave wear. The secret is to stay away from anything itchy, that’s distracting or would prevent you from having fun.

The Same Goes for Footwear
Your choice of footwear is just as important as your outfit. Be sure to wear a pair that are the right size for your feet so you don’t get blisters and also wear closed-toed shoes to protect your feet from something that may fall or stomp on them.
