Dude, if youre asking that question, all hope is already fuckin lost. Jesus. go to a rave, pick up some glowsticks, eat triple stack genie, and watch the magic happen. Peace.

I'm gonna have to stick with Candy Kid with this one. Never ask how to be something.....just be yourself and everything will fall into place. As far as getting advice from someone else....wrong move, it's different for everyone. To each his own. Hope these words fall on a mind capable of understanding them. (no disrespect intended) Everyone here on this site....if I'm right let him know...I'f I'm wrong tell me. PLUR and safe Raving Everyone.

PS- Hope to see some of you up in DC, just come up to me and say hi if you do see me.

hey dogg don't sweat it. people are most of the time too high to notice that u aren't a raver. plus no one really will judge u. they will be psyched that u are a virgin to the rave scene. if u are too nervous to go to a huge rave, go to a samll party at someones house. peace out and enjoy yourself. u have nuttin to lose.

What up? If you go to the raves, you enjoy the music, and you wish you could spend the rest of your days on earth there liveing off nothing but pills and Evian, and dancing till your heart stops and you pass over dead, then....naturally you are a raver.

I mean actually you can make an ass of yourself, i do all the time, but it doesn't really matter. If you go to a rave there will always be at least 5 people who suck more than you. It helps if you're a girl becaus ei a girl can suck at dancing and everyone's still amazed (or pretends to be because she has tits) guys on the other hand if we suck we hear about it. Aha.

OMG , YOU GUYS ARE PATHETIC, sorry for the insult but come on, OK, Partys or "raves" are so becoming the new thing, yea it pulls you in, but let in pull you in fo the right reasons like the music, the enviroment and the culture, Not to get eat beans and fit in, eat pills cause ya want to, dont do light shows cause you seen peeps do it and you want to impress peeps, and if ya like them then do something someone else hasint done at a party like twirlin poodles on fire or dildos or sumptin beside fuckin glowsticks that 12 year olds wave at britney spears concerts and the skating rink anyway well peace all you followers and leeaders, mad propts to tha leaders, fuck plur , we arent neo hippis

hey. i won't knock you for asking. if you're interested , you should dive into the scene full force but for the right reasons. check out a website like carolinaspins or pick up a flyer at a music store or something. see if you can find a pill before going and just go, even if you have to go by yourself. good luck and have fun. plurr, a :)

The Kid Asked A VALID qestion you funkin posers! I read this and you run chills down my spine. You think your such hot shit cause you go to parties and end all you messages with PLUR. I being a raver means PEACE LOVE UNITY AND RESPESPECT!! Not just for other ravers but for people in generale! THATS PLUR. Where the fuck is your Peace Love Your RESPECT? You fukin hypocrytes!!! YOUR NOT RAVER ENLESS PLUR IS WHAT YOU STAND FOR. It's haters like you that keep people from the scene and it's haters like you who further contribute to the death of the scene. Chris find some raver kids at school and hang out with them. Consider your self a raver rather or not you have been to a rave. (Try to aviod talking about being a raver though.)Im sure you'll find many common intrests and delvop vibe filed relationships. If they can't find any raves either then at least you will have someone to share your frusteration. But if you put your minds together I'm sure you'll come up with somthing. Yes you do have to start some where!

And when I say PLUR I meant IT

PPP L U U RRR P P L U U R R PPPP L U U RRR P L U U R R P . LLLL. UUUU. R R for ever and for all!

Okay Im VERY Sorry. Im sure I was a bit harsh, okay very harsh.I lost my temper and It's just a got a vibe of no understanding from some of the posted messages. After posting & reading mine I realize I must have come off as a bit of a hypocryte myself. But harsh or not I do think there was some validity to what I said. BTW the string of P's,L's,U's, & R's at the bottom was meant to be a big "PLUR" Text art and came out wrong. But Once again Im VERY SORRY! I meant NO disrespect! So next time there's a rainbow look up you'll feel better.

Rave party, at least there are parties where you guys live. I'm currently living is a small dead "white-people" town and the people here don't even know what rave is. i'm the only raver at my college and it really suck, but also cool because all the girls love the funcky glow-sticks. It's like magic for them, but enough BS! to answer the question, you can never be a true raver. just swing your glow-sticks around and that's raver enough!

raving is something that comes from within. just wanting the rave experience shows the raver already in you begging to be unleashed. i'm sure you'll be a great raver. go to to look for raves in your area. don't worry about becoming a raver or fitting in. the whole concept of PLUR and raving is that EVERYONE has potential to fit in. Ravers are sweet open minded people that will be excited to teach you tricks of the trade about raving, not laugh you right of the warehouse. Just go have a good time and BE YOURSELF...its hard to keep up a false image on E. *pLuR*

Well i consider myself a hardcore raver kinda bloke, never done pills tho, i like just to get somewhere and let loose, the whole thing is an escape and i can just go absolutely wobbly. No other moron looks any more stupid than me when iím wavin my arms around screamin for it to go faster!.. jeeze iím sat here thinking y the hell iím not out ravin right now..

All i can say is, find that 'place' where ya know everything is abso- frikin-lutely wonderful... i tell you guys a natural high is like 300% better than poppin pills and frying my head.

I think that if you feel your self as a raver then thats whattruely matters. Is anyone really what they say they are. Being a raver is all about PLUR. Think about it. So if you want to experince a rave look for one in your and go there is nothing to it. And if you feel that people will know your new at the scene don't be shy about it. Ask the old schoolerz questions they all like to help. Its all about the love.

Peace, love, unity and respect, man. thats what its all about. go into a party and spread it. fucking dance like no ones watching. and have a jolly good time. its just u and ur sticks.

I believe that "raving" is just something extra thrown in. Its all about PLUR...and going to parties to express your love for the MUSIC. As far as Raving and Candy......X is just an xtra thing that comes with the Parties. Love the music......feel the music....and dance till you die!!! And remember to PLUR Love you all dance safe

Okay, I am a freshman in high school right now. At the begining of this year, I didnt know what it was, untill I dated a guy who introduced me to it at the begging of the year.After we broke up, I got MORE into it, and all it really takes is, alot of practice and to feel the music. I havent ever done drugs and I wouldnt suggest it either, but its your decision. Get some light sticks, and just feel the music. there are a numerous amount of web sites you can go to, try going to a search engine such as, and typing in rave or whatever, and it will find you some good sites. laterz! (I dont do the whole plur thing ) sorry. *~Blair~*

I went to my first rave a couple of days ago and had the time of my life...I realized that it doesn't matter what you do because if people are true ravers they respect you and the way you are so there is no need to impress anyone. I can't really dance but I had a ton of people showing me moves, teaching me how to do lightshows, and offering hugs. It was just a wonderful glowing night and I am sure I will be going back again and just go for it! I even got extra hugs and such because people were so excited to hear I was a rave virgin!! :)

hmm...I don't want to be a raver, but I want to go to a rave, because I like the music (mostly gabber, speedcore, you understand, but I'm a big hater on other styles like gabbas). There are 0 raves in this area, unless I want to go dance to some Reggae, but reggae offers me nothing. Its just not in demand here. As for things like PLUR, I don't believe in PLUR, because well...its stupid and overused. So for now, I'll just stick with going to local metal concerts whenever friends get a gig, or just make music myself. A newbs tip: Don't do drugs if you haven't started yet, because the people who do them won't care because they're fucked up, and see halos around lights.

The best way to brake on the rave zone is to network some one and take it from for the drugs...never do them on the first rave unless you have no cares for your health...most raves have no real need for narcotics but some one always seems to supply the"happy stuff"....oh ya...dress light becuse thoughs lights get hot

keep it burning bright flint~AKA gunshot
