What is a Rave?

Mon, Jan 14, 2013 at 9:58 PM

A rave is a type of all night dance party, popular in many parts of the world. The term is taken from the Jamaican word for party, rave, but true rave parties really didn’t begin until the 1980s. A rave may be legal or not depending upon where the event is held. Partying all night is not illegal, but activities associated with raves may be.

For example, for a time, some were held in abandoned warehouses or places not zoned for a large number of people or party activities. These were often semi-spontaneous events, with announcement circulated by word of mouth. It should be noted that many raves are legally held, though activities at a rave definitely cross into illegality when underage kids are served alcohol or when drug use is rampant.
