How To be a Raver: The Conversationalists

Back in 2016, I had a JUngLEkalender conversation with fellow junglist Sofus about our first many years at raves. And how we always always always had to be the last person standing on the dancefloor. How important that was. This is a bit of the conversation: Sofus: “Now, it’s a lot easier for me to […]

Blasts from the Past: The Well Dressed Raver

Dressing for the dance floor is not an easy task. You need to be comfortable, flexible AND possibly in for the (very) long haul at the same time. But you also need to entertain your fellow ravers.

Ravers are the Experts: Party Animals

How to be a Raver: The Mad Hatters

For obvious playful reasons, you will find ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and ‘Through the Looking-Glass’ references all over the rave-o-sphere, if you know what to look for.

So, we have established that ravers are always right and thus probably the most highly evolved species on this planet (along with dolphins, the ravers of the sea).
