Children of the night. Originally reffered to an individual who participated in illegal all night gatherings as a form
of rebellion to authority
figures and authorities alike. Used as a form
of escapism from the norm with the aid of mind altering drugs
beats, ravers would "peak" to a euphoric frenzy at rave parties. Raver
fashion traditionally was very expressive and loud, utilising bright colours and a baggy look with "cute"/pop culture
characters incorporated in the outfit.
Always frowned upon by other urban cultures, being a raver
came with a "drug addict" label. Depending on which musical style you were most
into determined your "label" and "rave alias"... that's it 4 now. Things are different
nowadays, with the age of "ravers" falling and the amount of drugs
consumed rising, the original feeling of rebellion is somewhat lost, especially
with all the media publicity over the last few years.
