New Years Eve Rave
There’s no better way to welcome in the New Year than with a party! With festivals in full swing this year, there are plenty of amazing options for you to choose from.
One of the largest and most popular festivals in Berlin is Salon zur Wilden Renate. This 61-hour party features 30 acts, starting 25 hours before New Year’s Eve itself and costing between 35-70 euros.
This chic new year’s eve rave was held in Kreuzberg, Berlin’s hipster haven. Conceived by four of Berlin’s most progressive collectives and featuring two floors full of artists, it was the ideal way to welcome 2021 with style!
For some time now, new years eve has been marked by an age divide between traditionalists and some of today’s youth. While it has been a challenging time for all involved with this event, there can be no denying its return. With more time to focus on their favorite artists and a new venue to call home, 2019 promises to be an exciting year – we hope to see you there and let the good times roll!
The year 2022 is almost over and it’s time to wrap up this incredible year in style. To help you celebrate, here are a few amazing events taking place across America from west to east that can help you commemorate this remarkable year in grand style.
Decadence has long been America’s premiere electronic New Years celebration, boasting an impressive lineup and lavish production. Held over two nights, this two-night affair brings some of the world’s greatest talent to Denver each year.

Oxi is the newest cocaine derivative to hit Brazil’s urban and rural communities, and it’s killing addicts in alarmingly high numbers. At about R$2 (75p) per rock, it can be purchased and smoked using pipes made from cans, pieces of pipe or metal taps – an affordable alternative to crack.
Addictive drug that attacks internal organs and causes extreme weight loss, this highly addictive medication can be deadly within 12 months. Side effects include yellow skin tone, an expanding waistline, liver damage and respiratory difficulties.
Oxi can cause severe stomachaches, frequent vomiting and cognitive difficulties. As a powerful stimulant, users often report feeling euphoric with an overwhelming sense of nothingness.
On the border between Brazil and Bolivia, oxi can be found in small settlements where hippies once sought out ayahuasca to lift their spirits. It has since spread across the Amazonian border into Acre state, where it’s now sold through bocadas–street-corner drug dens where users can purchase it at low prices.

Rolfe Kanefsky’s film attempts to recreate the low budget and B-movie aesthetic of horror movies from the 90’s, but it often falls short due to poor acting and ineffective dialogue.
Cleopatra Films has done an admirable job distributing the movie on Blu-ray. While video quality is average for a new HD release, with some dark gradients and mild banding but good detail, audio is lossy but features some pleasant active sound design and decent separation. It’s worth listening to Natasha Henstridge’s commentary as she and other members of the cast discuss the storyline in depth.
