Electronic Dance Music Festivals or EDM music festivals as they are more popularly known, are a great place to go if you are looking to party hard in the daylight. However, EDM does not stop in the daylight, and if you want to take part in an exciting night time event then there is no better place to do so than at a rave in one of the many club venues that exist in the US. If you have never gone to a rave then this article will give you some insight into what is involved and how you can make it all happen in your home town.
In case you are unsure of what a rave is, then let me describe it. First of all, you may well be asking “What does a rave look like?”. Well, if you have never attended one, then I am afraid to tell you that they look a little different from most events you might have seen in the past. For starters, the dance floor has been covered in a huge number of LED (light emitting diodes) lights which create the effect of dancing around.
When it comes to EDM clubs, there are usually a few DJs who are playing songs in the background which will be spinning all night long. What these DJs are doing is mixing tracks which are often used in rave music and then playing them in a variety of different ways. This can include playing them with synthesizers, using them in combination with the beat and creating some totally unique songs.
In terms of the EDM music festivals themselves, they tend to have an eclectic mix of both traditional club music and more modern tracks. As the name implies, they are often held at clubs and are held every weekend of the month. The clubs that have EDM music festivals usually have several stages, and some nights they even have a dance floor.
In order to attend one of these events you will need to be aged over 21, although some clubs do allow under-age parties to take part in the festivities. Most of the major clubs that have EDM music festivals will have a minimum age requirement, however, and you are more than likely going to find that children are allowed to go to the events if they are accompanied by adults. However, there are some clubs that do have their own requirements.
In terms of where to find a club that is holding one of these festivals, they are all over the place. Some are held on weekends only, others on a Saturday only, while some have them on either Friday or Saturday and one may even have them on Sunday. Generally speaking though, the venues that host these parties will have a large sign in the window stating “EDM Music Festival” in large letters, but some will also have small signs saying “Rave” and “EDM House Party” beside each other.
Most clubs will have both club events and EDM music festivals on the same weekend. The reason for this is that clubs that are holding such events tend to attract more people than clubs that are holding club events on weekends, which is why it’s a good idea to take advantage of this fact. It’s important however, not to overlook the clubs that are holding these events on a Saturday or Sunday.
As with all club events, it is best to be prepared for the size of the crowd attending these events, which is a definite possibility when attending this type of party. In order to ensure that you are well organised, you will need to bring along a suitable amount of alcohol and plenty of cash.
