Old Raver

According to a new study, over 3.7 million British adults over 45 go clubbing at least once weekly. While this represents an enormous shift from earlier when clubbing was seen as solely the domain of youths, doesn’t mean you need to stop dancing or get off your high horse – far from it!

Electronic dance music was an entirely different beast than rock music, offering a freedom that often terrified those on the outside. Dancing to it was like breaking free of convention and breaking boundaries; those who looked in were often left feeling intimidated.

1. Know Yourself

Learning to know yourself better is a lifelong quest and the more deeply you understand yourself, the easier it will be for you to lead an authentic and meaningful life. However, this journey can also be challenging as we often hesitate to take risks or alter our habits for fear of judgment or rejection.

We live in a society that has taught us to mask our true selves and act according to what the world expects of us. As such, many of us have become prisoners of our own illusionary shadows.

Gaining insight into who you are can be difficult, particularly if you are dealing with depression or anxiety. But beginning to get to know yourself better can be done through meditation, talking to a therapist or taking personality tests.

You can also reflect on your past and discover which experiences have molded who you are today. Be kind to yourself; remember that human life is often complex and contradictory.

Discovering yourself requires taking stock of your values and what matters to you. Doing this will enable you to make decisions that will be more fulfilling for your soul, leading to happier decisions in the long run.

Being aware of your values will make selecting a career much simpler. For instance, if you are concerned about climate change, perhaps consider taking on environmental activism or working towards creating a sustainable lifestyle.

2. Be Safe

Rave culture is founded on a sense of community and mutual respect. This means that raver friends should uphold each other’s boundaries, be mindful of their environment, and take each other’s safety seriously.

However, it is also essential to be aware of the potential dangers that raves may present. These could include drug use, sexual assault, bullying and gang activity.

If your friends are worried about their health, it’s essential to listen and work towards a resolution quickly. If the issue persists, it may be time for new connections or cancel the event altogether.

Although there are a few OGs who have been around the block, raves today are much different from when they began. Back then, tickets to events were usually low cost or free and often held in abandoned buildings that didn’t have toilets, heat or security systems installed.

People were able to get to and from parties using pagers, hotlines and answering machines. These communication methods made organizing a party much simpler as well as informing attendees about the location and time of their next one.

In addition to protecting ravers, this type of communication can create a safe and supportive scene for ravers of all ages. This kind of respect and cooperation can foster friendships that will last far beyond the dancefloor.

3. Be Respectful

Raving can be an exhilarating experience, but it’s essential to show respect towards other revelers. Otherwise, you may end up disliking the scene altogether.

Many older ravers are passionate about the rave scene and should be treated with respect. Many have managed to enjoy it despite being older, despite age shaming from friends or family members.

However, some people have a negative attitude towards raver culture and have even attempted to undermine it by spreading false information and spreading rumors. For instance, the PLUR ideology is often associated with drug dealing but according to LA Weekly it began as friendship bracelets.

Contrary to popular belief, PLUR ravers do not intend to give up their love of dance music. They believe that in order to fully comprehend and appreciate its culture and atmosphere, they must experience as much of it as possible.

Take advantage of OG raver culture and continue to have an incredible experience. You never know when you might meet your next partner or make new friends – the possibilities are endless! No matter your age, if you want to have some fun, the rave scene is the place for it! Just remember these tips so you have a blast!

4. Know Your Limits

When attending a major music festival, knowing your limits can make the difference between an enjoyable experience and a disaster. You need to determine how long you can stand in the crowd, how much alcohol you can handle, and even what kind of food is suitable for consumption. If traveling as part of a group, rotating designated drivers is recommended so everyone gets home safely while having a chance at remaining sober.

One of the best ways to stay healthy while enjoying life is having a regular work-out routine. That could be something as easy as taking daily walks, or going on weekend hikes. Staying active not only increases energy levels and improves mental clarity, but it releases feel-good chemicals like endorphins too! Plus, it’s an opportunity for socializing with others – you might even enjoy it! So even if finding time and motivation is difficult at first, give it a shot – trust me; the results will be worth all the effort!

5. Wear Comfortable Clothing

No matter what you choose to wear, make sure it is comfortable. After all, you will be wearing it for an extended period of time and comfort will help ensure that you feel your best.

Comfortable clothing can make working easier, as it allows you to breathe easily and prevents any stomach issues or illnesses from arising.

Additionally, it can aid in getting a better night’s sleep. This is because it makes you more comfortable during the day and encourages relaxation when resting at night.

Fabrics such as 100% cotton, silk and merino wool can all be used to craft comfortable clothing that keeps you cool in warm weather. These materials are all soft, breathable and ideal for summertime wear.

However, it’s essential to select the appropriate fabric for you. This will depend on how frequently you plan on wearing the clothing – whether dancing for extended periods of time or not.

Another factor to consider is the weather, particularly if you plan on attending an indoor venue where it could be cold. In such cases, consider investing in a warmer dress or light top that will allow your body to stay cool while you dance.

It is especially essential when attending a rave, as you will likely be dancing for extended periods of time and it can be uncomfortable to have to take off your clothes frequently in order to cool down.

6. Be Yourself

Though the rave scene may have evolved over the years, it still offers a safe space to be yourself. That doesn’t mean you need to act like an idiot or shimmy around, but rather that you should be proud of who you are and what you stand for.

If you’re new to raves, starting with a local party and working your way up from there is wise. This will give you an understanding of the scene and how to stay safe while having fun.

To have an enjoyable evening, it is essential that you remain true to yourself and take advantage of what the night has to offer. If you don’t feel comfortable with yourself, having fun will be impossible – which is precisely what we are striving to avoid!

Being yourself in a crowd, especially one that doesn’t share your viewpoint, can be challenging. This could lead to uncomfortable interactions that could ultimately ruin your night.

Being yourself is easy when you find a rave community that fits your lifestyle and personality. There are various types of raver, so there should be someone out there for everyone – from pranksters to artists who appreciate good laughs or music enthusiasts alike!
