I am new to the rave scene, my Boyfriend is a raver, he likes the scene, music, and has gone to some rave events himself over the years. He wants to take me to a rave event, but I am a bit scared to go. I have heard bad things about rave concerts from news reports. Such as it’s an event where teens and adults are asking you for drugs every 5 minutes, girls and guys dressed in awkward clothing, and people doing weird things like sex, taking drugs, drinking, and smoking.
Me, I have always been a fan of other styles of music, particularly metal, rock, and punk. I love going to concerts, headbanging, mosh pits, crowd surfing, etc. I have heard rave style music, and it is not my thing. So my question here, is what is the scene really like? What about the music? I have heard stuff on YouTube but not sure if it is the right style or not.
You should weigh out the big parties with the small parties. People usually gets attached to their first experience. Those huge event prices seem to keep going up. It’s more sensible to start with a 1 night event (which is actually the preferred events). You don’t want to get attached to expensive events.
We don’t encourage you to take stuff, its up to you. At least in small events, the people you meet won’t disappear for the rest of your life. You can actually bump into them several times a night (or avoid them). Once you get the hang of it you can join the ‘trend’ and go to the larger events! Keep in mind if you want to meet everyone at a party you can only do that at small events. So its up to you guys really.
ALSO…..please share your experience when you go! I want to know if I make sense (lol).
