The majority of people of the senior generation don’t
like subcultures. They think that teenagers join this or
that subculture under the influence of the bad
companies or thus try to make the protest against
society. They suppose that the subculture is connected
with such concepts as disrespect, callousness,
immorality. In society people think that animations are
people who are either children or adults, their life is not
folded. Animations are alike gotts, emoes and punks.

The ravers — youth subculture of
constant participants of raves — the
parties of the electronic dance music
which has received mass popularity in
1988 in Great Britain.
The rave – from an English word, rave –
delirium to rave, incoherent speech. Also
– to roar, rage, storm, howl.
The word “rave”
• In the late 1980s, the word "rave" was adopted to
describe the subculture that grew out of the acid
house movement. Activities were related to the party
atmosphere of Ibiza, a Mediterranean island in
Spain, frequented by British, Italians, and German
youth on vacation. The fear that a certain number
of rave party attendees used "club drugs" such as
MDMA, cocaine, amphetamines and, more recently,
ketamine, was taken by authorities as a pretext to
ban those parties altogether.
• By 1991, organisations such
as Fantazia, Universe,
Raindance and Amnesia
House were holding massive
legal raves in fields and
warehouses around the
country. Vision at Pophams
airfield in August 1992,
attracted 40,000 people.
Another notable event was
Universe's Tribal Gathering
•The illegal free party scene also reached its zenith for
that time after a particularly large festival, when many
individual sound systems such as Bedlam, Circus
Warp, DIY, and Spiral Tribe set up near Castlemorton
In the late 80s, rave culture began to filter
through from English ex-pats and DJs who
would visit Europe. However, rave culture's
major expansion in North America is often
credited to Frankie Bones, who after
spinning a party in an aircraft hangar in
England helped organize some of the
earliest known American raves in New
York City that maintained a consistent core
audience. After this, hundreds of smaller
promotional groups sprung up across the
east coast, and later the west coast, causing
a true "scene" to develop.
•Raves were also represented in mainstream culture, even this
early in their existence. The film Party Monster (2003) shared
aspects of the rave scene via anachronism, since it was set
during the "Club Kid" era of the late 1980s and early 1990s.
Los Angeles had Raves early as 1988. The early rave scene thrived in Los Angeles
due to the fact that the city had such a large, multi-cultural population, a
dry/temperate climate, and vast amounts of space which made locations plentiful.
Warehouses were often broken into or hired (often through deceptive means to
unsuspecting owners), a sound system and lighting was set up on the day of the
event, and people would phone the info lines on the backs of flyers on the evening of
the party to find out the location. This would often involve first going to a map point,
which would be a predetermined location where people would get tickets and
directions to the actual event, or directions to another map point. The map points
would often be used to create excitement and anticipation for the rave, but also to
allude police and large numbers of people loitering outside of the venue. Raves
would often range from smaller, more intimate low-budget events, to large, full scale
productions with multiple international DJ's and acts, expensive lasers and visual
effects, and props often in theme with the event. Some of the better known early
events were Alice's House, Under The Paw Paw Patch, Love. Sex. Dance, Grape
Ape, Gilligan's, Truth, and Double Hit Mickey.
San Francisco has long been a
Mecca for ravers from all over
the world and true to form a
lot of the early promoters and
DJs were from the UK and
Europe. For almost ten years
after the initial raves took
place, one could find up to 2 to
4 parties happening a weekend
and sometimes on the same
There was no curfew in place, which allowed the SF scene to
explode by the late 90's when venues would have up to
20,000 people every weekend;
Peace Love Unity Respect
Some cultural tenets associated with rave culture are:
•The word "Responsibility" was added to the
acronym PLUR during the mid to late 90s to
promote awareness of increased drug overdoses
• Love Parade
Rave dance (sometimes referred to
as hard dance) refers to the street
dance styles that evolved alongside
rave culture. Such dances are street
dances since they evolved alongside
the underground rave movements,
thus without the intervention of
dance studios. Sometimes cluboriented dances would be
dancetecktonik is sometimes danced
to fast-paced electro house.
Depending on the rave, raver and the
type of music played, specific dances
that are danced by ravers to
accompany the music may vary. For
example the melbourne shuffle is
often danced to hardstyle and hard
trance and stepping often done to
drum and bass.
