    Just wondering how many of you guys would actually be into events like this:
    Nocturnal Festival If no, give your reasons why. I love to hear opinions... most of the time.:D
    Note: Not trying to advertise.

    It looks like a rave. Actually, my cousin used to go a lot and he spun at them from time to time. It's nocturnal wonderland isn't it? One of the largest raves ever.

    Yep. Although they changed the title to Nocturnal Festival thanks to copyright infringement. It's not really a rave.. but like half of the people take it as a rave.

    It's a cultural thing really. I just know it's something that people thrive on.

    Now I am a big big fan of the Glitch Mob, I also love Rabbit in the Moon and a few others. I am not in or near Cali, so it is out of the question. Honestly I am rather particular with my music, so usually big events like this don't speak to me. There is only so much 4 on the floor a guy can take.

    It seems like an okay thing. If a friend invited me I'd go.

    Agreed. This just doesn't seem like any fun to me.

    Day to day I wouldn't listen to that sort of music, but I really like these sort of events. I would definitely go.

    It looks like a typical club, but without a marquee-name DJ. Instead of paying for good jockey they're adding flames and weird costumes.

    I like that kind of music, and I wouldn't go. That's just me.

    The DJ's aren't the ones that usually play in clubs. They might've started out in clubs and worked there way up. But the line up is filled with big name artists, Rank 1, Laidback Luke, Pendulum, Ferry Corsten, etc. etc.

    Not my thing.
    I also had no idea America went for this kind of thing. I thought us Europeans were the only ones who bothered with dance raves and that kinda thing. :eek:

    I heard of this a few weeks ago and thought it looked like the awesomest thing ever. I've never been to a rave :( I'd go if I didn't have school and had to travel across country.

    Lol!

    They're not marquee-name DJ's because they're good enough, and popular enough, to charge more than the average club can afford to pay them.

    Um, dude..

    Nocturnal Festival is a pretty huge event. A ton of people, ecstasy (no pun intended), and dancing.

    I wouldn't even hesitate. Go.

    :D

    Due to the fact I don't plan to ever go to any nightclubs or anything (and the ones I've been to in the past are my definition of hell), I wouldn't go if you paid me.

    Ok, I lie, I'd probably go if you paid me enough, but I certainly wouldn't enjoy it.

    Why not?

    You make the experience. But I guess that's not your type of atmosphere.

    Just not my thing I guess. IMO, it's all pointless. You go in a dark room at night with loud music blazing everywhere and lights that flash in weird ways so you can't see properly, then you have drinks which screw with your head (at the very least) and you wake up the next morning with a headache and sometimes not even knowing where you are... Not my definition of fun at all, the whole concept and why people actually enjoy it confuses me.

    But, hey, each to their own I guess.

    Totally understandable.

    You have a Maybach, though. If I had one, I wouldn't waste time at raves, either.

    Rave is SO over. It should have died in the early 90's. The only way to have any sort of fun at these things is to do drugs like Ecstasy and K- both extremely boring. I lost one of my roommates to this BS. He can no longer speak properly and is a complete mess. I broke up with a boyfriend over this too. I am no fan of rave culture at all. Rave is over 20 years old. When is something new going to happen?

    I definitely would not go unless well paid and with friends.

    Being jammed in a giant room with thousands of sweaty people. Many of whom are loaded up on various drugs. Music blaring at deafening levels where conversation is impossible even by screaming in someones ear. Absurdly high prices for drinks. Having to use port-a-potties of unspeakable filth were enough were brought in for 1/10th of the crowd turnout. Is not my idea of fun.

    To me a quite bar on a weekday playing pool and chatting with a few friends is fun.

    Though I could understand how people would like to pop a bunch of E. Then party all night.

    I just skimmed through the list (and let it be known henceforth my speedreading sucks). I stand somewhat corrected; Rank 1 and Ferry Corsten aren't small names.

    I'd pay more to see Armin, Tri State or Tiësto, yes I would.

    Once again, it's not a rave. But if you're into events like these and never have been to one. My suggestion is to start out at the Electric Daisy Carnival. It was my first and I'm hooked on all these dance events now.

    Alright. Honestly if you need to take drugs to have fun at an event like this. Then you have no passion for the music. I've been to about 5 dance massives completely sober an had a blast a each one.
