Raves

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

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

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.

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

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

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.
