Hey hello to all.Im been thinking on this for some time, a lot of people here in mexico call raves to all the psytrance parties, hmm the thing is that i dont know if that is the right way to call them, i think that just open parties or psytrance parties fits very well, what u think how do u call back home??? i would like to see some opinions

Cheers Mates!!

I know that there is a similar topic on the mexico section, but i want to know all the global opinion

Enlightenment Events ! :-P

We call them "parties" here.

Nice objective word, which doesnt put focus on things like lineups, but just the event as a whole.

When I think of "rave", I think mostly about huge events where it is more about masshysteria than anything else. A "rave atmosphere" is a big hall, with lots of people all putting their hands in the air to the sound of mentally very accessible and superficial music, intended for creating a superficial response from the listeners.

Open-air parties! Raves are big events with loads of E and cheesy music playing for a crowd that usually doesn't mind what they're listening to as long as it has massive breakdowns and cheesy melodies. Ohh wait.

Here in Chile, it's a bit more complicated.

The people who really like and enjoy psytrance, use the term "Party".

In the other hand, those who see the psy over the surface, call them "Raves".

I think it's because it sounds more "wild on"

The name Rave is bang on the money. Especially in all those of today's huge outdoor event's where the kilarghhh Megastar's stand on Big stages far away from the Dance Floor with their Megastar attitudes.

So yes it is appropriate to call many of the Big outdoor and indoor events for Raves. I even call them Megaraves. Now who's the first to book Scooter?

Party is the phrase used in these surroundings.. I think it's expresses a general activity with no need to classify it to genders. Parties that last for more then 24 hours should be refered to as Festivals and these are the only two expressions that should be use in our scene.           'I became tuned in on the network of neurological signals and cellular wisdoms that radiate at hundreds of millions per second.'

What comes to mind to me when i think of the word "rave" is a party that is thrown inside a warehouse or desolate building.....with all the kids playing with their glowsticks and passifiers.....i see at as more of a "juvenile" event.....i dont mean that in a negative connotation.....just more youthful and whatever comes with that youth.....

a "festival" for me is a party that lasts normally at least 2 days or more and is usually outdoor....that also consists of more than just music......maybe someworkshops, sales of unique items and arts and etc......

an "open air party" is a party that can be a festival but doesnt have to can last an evening a night and a morning......and of course it has to be outside.......

these are the way i view the differences between the two...

but here is wikipedia's view on the term Rave


Rave music consists of forms of electronic music for dancing that are associated with the rave scene. Most often, it is used to describe music that depends heavily on samples and is high energy.

"Rave music closely followed the acid house phenomenon. Initially "rave music" was considered a particular style that was a combination of fast breakbeat and more hardcore forms of techno. Early 1990s efforts by Nebula 2, Acen, The Prodigy (The Prodigy Experience), Utah Saints and The Shamen (En-Tact) were quintessential "rave music" at were being played at massive all night rave like [Fantazia], Raindance, Universe and others.

By the early 2000s, the term was used more generically to mean any one of a number of different styles (or combinations thereof) that might be played at a rave party. In this sense, rave music is more associated with an event than a particular genre, per se. At a rave there can be different "arenas" or areas which play different styles of rave music. Very large raves called massives may include ten or more separate arenas, each with their own music style.

Raver styles of music continue to grow and evolve."

this is what i found on festivals....

Psychedelic trance is often played at outdoor FESTIVALS . The FESTIVALS often take place over a few days with music being played through the night and well into the next day. These big events usually offer a lot of parallel activities, not just music.

The big trance festivals often form a small independent city, where some 10,000 people from different places of the world meet. During winter many parties take place in clubs in modern suburbia or on the many beaches in foreign climes frequented by travellers.

Some people at these festivals frequently consume psychedelic drugs like LSD and psychedelic mushrooms. The smoking of Cannabis is widespread within the global psy-trance scene.....

a FESTIVAL is an event or community gathering, usually staged by a local community, which centers on some theme, sometimes on some unique aspect of the community......

basically the word "party" i believe fits the description for all of the prior mentioned above....... so saying the word "party" i believe is just fine......
