    What actually is a Rave? I think the school disco may have been the closest thing to a rave I've been too :D :pac: unless you count outdoor concerts!

    I know everyone "hates" Maniac but that's what they played. I don't mind it :)

    That's fake rave.


  • Registered Users Posts: 401 ✭✭soiseztomabel


    It very much depends who they're run by, I've been to some amazing ones over the years and met some really great friends as a result. It's not all gurning and glow sticks.... although that is part and parcel

    Go find yourself one in a valley below a mountain and report back.

    The OED suggests
    An all-night dance party, especially one at which techno, house, or other electronically synthesized music is played.

    Events at which yokes are consumed in large quantities.

    I know! I said the closest thing! Is this real rave? :D :P

    Spiral Tribe were great back in the day. English new age traveller types, did some good 'raves' up at the Hellfire club. Great music, best outdoors, feeling of unity, full on dancing, not posing but real dancing and seeing the sun come up.

    I'll not ever hear a bad word utterd against Buddy Holly. Can't decide myself if he was punk or rave. Amazing music. Still play his albums regularly.

    A rave is like power-washing a slatted house or pulling dead lambs from an ewe, only silly useless cnuts yoked out of their heads think it's fun.

    There hasn't been a rave in Ireland since the early 90s

    Sorta like the ballroom of romance, only more drugs.

    Mid 90's at the earliest. They were still going strong in out in Galway fields into 96/97.

    While getting incoherent from drink and posting claptrap here is the height of fun, I suppose?

    A place where hippies gather to listen to the loading music for random 80s Spectrum games played at eardrum shattering levels.

    Disgraceful carry on at them, We managed to get the raves near Thurles stopped they called them the flog on the bog. Scum from miles around used to converge on Thurles looking for directions to it till the residents and guards had enough.

    Anybody that comes here for fun would need their head examined.

    I went to some great ones in late 90s and early 00s. Anyone go to the Creation ones in Devils Glen? Fantastic. Everyone on pills and happy. No smart phones or selfies. I remember once the Garda drove up and turned back because it just wasn’t worth the hassle. A lot of us stayed back to clean up after too. Good times.

    The world was a happier place when that scene was happening


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,522 ✭✭✭✭Tell me how


    A place where a couple hundred people get to feel the music as well as hear it, the standard greeting is "Got any yokes", nobody gives a crap about getting the shift yet you love everyone there, minding your clothes or makeup is forgotten about, there's more water consumed than leaks from Irish water pipes in 24 hrs and never any fighting amongst the "ravers".

    When people say they regret not having fun when they were younger I think, not me. Some of the best times of my life were at night's like those. And I never had any yokes. Just didn't go that route.

    We actually used to call it The Looney Line. Twas unreal. Like Mad Max but far happier! There was no residents living near the place- if it's the same place, it was totally in the middle of nowhere.

    Metroland in Waterford in the 90's were pure class and have many memories good and bad for me.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 4,360 ✭✭✭Lorelli!


    So what is an example of the music played?

    A few miles past littleton towards Ballynonty On a quiet night the music travelled and lots of residents could hear it
    People were afraid of the unsavoury characters floating around trying to find the place.

    They used to be all the rave back in the 90’s

    Coming down was the worst thing


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,745 ✭✭✭✭Charlie19


    I loved nights out in clubs like the Olympic, Sides and the Asylum.

    I was never at any of the outdoor events.

    With others I may have helped organised a couple of "happenings" in my time way back in the day™ and M's take hits a bit close to the bone. :D Oh yeah and yippers for all. Dance/chew/hug/grind.

    Naughty, naughty.

    Rejoice in the awareness of feeling stupid, for that’s how you end up learning new things. If you’re not aware you’re stupid, you probably are.
