6 Types of People You Meet At Raves

Raves are pretty common over in the Western countries but over here, we’re just getting warmed up. Or, maybe it’s just me because I just went to my first rave.

Raves are events of massive proportion and usually associated with club/EDM/trance/dubstep/you know what I mean music, booze, recreational use of drugs and scantily clad humans.

As a first-time raver (is that even a word), here are a few observations I made on the people I saw.

1. White People


You don’t usually see a congregation of white people in an Asian country unless you’re at rave. And they always seem to be having tons of fun.

2. Tall People


I am seriously wondering why people at concerts and raves aren’t arranged according to height. Isn’t that such a wonderful idea?

3. Drunk People


No better time to get wasted than with a bunch of strangers surrounding you, bouncing away to some heart-thumping beat.

4. High As F*** People


They are either the life of the party or the ones stepping all over your toes. Whichever one they are, one thing is for sure, they don’t give a damn if they are intruding your space in a place where space is already very scarce. If you’ve been to one, you’ll get what I mean.

5. Bored People


You find them standing or sitting at the back nursing their glass of alcohol and they make you wonder what motivates them to spend a few hundred on tickets just to come in and do that?

6. Ballin’ People


‘Nuff said.
