Techno music is synonymous with Rave parties ( also known as duf parties ). Basically where 100 or so people share ecstasy tablets with each other and play techno music out in a forest or deserted paddock.

What raves have you been to recently? Who was playing? Did you enjoy it or hate it?

A group of my friends are going to LA for Monster Massive to see Armin soon, but unfortunately I don't have the cash to go. I will be seeing Bassnectar and Infected Mushroom in November though, which is gonna be crazy!
#3
yeah - that'll be awesome.

How much is it to go to Monster Massive? Sure you couldn't raise some and go?

It's costing them $400 each, plus whatever they want for spending money/substances. They already bought tickets and everything so it's too late now, and I'm pretty broke. I owe my parents $9,000 abt (****in legal fees). It'll be sick I'm sure though, they're expecting around 100,000 people this year, and Armin Van Buuren, DJ Sasha, John O'Callaghan, and a lot more(whom I haven't heard of before).

The Infected Cocnert should be insane, especially because of my girl Lucy :P. I know they'll be playing a lot of the stuff off of their new album, Legend of the Black Shawarma, but I hope they play some older stuff as well. Bassnectar's new album drops Oct. 1st as well, so the concert will be crazy!

So what's everyone else going to?

Last freeparty I went to we had no drugs/drink, queued up for 4 hours to get in because of security problems, someone got chain whipped inside.


We left. The freeparty scene in London is pretty bad to be honest. Too much coke, skunk and ket not enough good MDMA maaaaaaaaaaan.
#9
that sucks, and yeah i agree that those aren't good substances for these kinds of scenes.I really wanna try K, but not when I'm out, just at my place. I think the only ones that actually work with it are like MDMA, MDA, alc, LSD, psilocybin, THC, etc. Whenever I'm at something like that and everyone's geeked out, it sucks, they are just obnoxious and crazy. Not enough love.

So Tiesto is coming to Chicago for halloween, and I know a lot of people who are going but tickets are $80. It sucks, I'd have to spend like $160 for me and my girl. Then I definitly couldn't see Bassnectar or Infected Mushroom, both of whome kick Tiesto's ass imo.

Kets not a bad drug, its just very antisocial and can rile up cokeheads and aggressive people because they tend to fall all over the place.

Cannabis, I mean obviously everyones on it, but then you get the rudeboys smoking in the corners with the screwface, a bit pranged out because they've smoked too much.

Coke is the main problem though, just far too many coked up cunts everywhere now days. Hopefully the coke fad will pass in a year or two because it really is huge at the moment.

I'm 14 lol, so I have no previous experience with drugs. I am the youngest person at all the raves I go to. I sneak in with my older cousin.

Sure, that's true.

Guy's, please keep on track. You can say you had fun with the drug WHILST enjoying so and so. But if you want to discuss drugs take it to the drug thread.

I am going to see stenchman next year.

Thats a long time away.

I thought this was about raves/freeparties as events, and drugs are pretty vital to the scene. They dictate what they're gonna be like normally. I didnt think it was about music in particular.

I agree with DavRev

I am sure you're OK with us talking about drugs in relation to raves? Just not exclusively.

this forum is for discussing bands/artists so if the thread/discussion is not focussed on the music then it doesn't belong here.

i don't mind if you mention drugs from time to time in context with your stories, but if you want to have a discussion about drugs, that's what the drug thread is for.

drugs do exist in the rave scene and have been a big part of it, i'm well aware of that, but they are definitely not required in order to enjoy electronic music or dance parties and i absolutely hate when people imply that. there is much more to a party than drugs - most importantly the music, but also production (sound, lighting etc), crowd, atmosphere, location... plenty of stuff to talk about in here, whilst saving the detailed drug talk for the drug thread.

^ I agree that drugs are not required in anyway, and are probably the least important of the aspects you mentioned. I have gone to several clubs (more house or "euro"[at least what stupid americans call euro] music) sober and had a blast. They can even take away from the party, if you get too f'd up, or around people who are.

What would be your guys dream lineup for a rave? Mine would be:

Infected Mushroom
Armin Van Buuren
1200 Micrograms
Bassnectar
Paul Van Dyk
ATB
STS9
Shpongle
Vibesquad
Breakbeatbuddha
Eliot Lipp

I'm going to one in November and Planet of the Drums, which is a tour with the biggest drum and bass names in america. It'll be less of a rave and more of a concert but whatever.
