How to dance at a rave for girls

How to dance/interact with girls at raves or concerts? : aves

Hey y’all hope everyone is doing great! This question has kinda been burning inside me after these last few festivals/concerts I’ve been to. I do want to preface this all by saying that I truly go to these things for the music and the atmosphere especially if I can be there with some friends. Whenever I go I always have a schedule that I follow for djs I need to see because I am first and foremost there to get lost in the music to some of my favorite DJs. And yes very likely am under the influence of something lol. Usually there hyping up with friends or even some people around me. And honestly having a blast with it. Some of the most enjoyable memories I’ve had are at these.

However, there’s something that I’ve taken notice to the last few I’ve been to one. It’ll be in the middle of whatever set I am at, I’m probably rolling, dancing (if you can call it that), and having a good time all while facing the stage. But I’ll notice a group of girls in front of me. One will kinda be standing directly in front of me while the others stand to her sides. Now I usually try to keep my space as much as I can in a crowd cause I’m doing my thing there and I want others to be able to do theirs too. But with this situation I’ll notice the girl kind of get closer to me (won’t look at me) and her friends will give glances at me. I’ll do nothing cause I just assume maybe they think I’m acting silly or creeping so I’ll try calm down and back up a bit. But sometimes either she’ll keep backing up or the friends will switch spots and the same thing will happen with the new girl. Eventually nothing ends up happening, they’ll go somewhere else and give me looks while leaving. It’s usually around then that I realize I may have dropped the ball and they may have wanted to dance.

Now I know this is partially (or mostly) a self confidence problem. I use to be obese but in the last year I’ve got that in check and I’m maybe average looking at best. But some of these girls are waaaaaay out of my league so I kinda just assume they don’t wanna dance to begin with. Shocked they’d park themselves in front of me instead of other objectively better looking people around me. And I know there’s the possibilities that maybe they were just there and left for a better spot or maybe they did think I was weird but I’m almost positive some wanted to dance with me.

I just don’t even know what to do cause I would love to dance with one of them. I’ve never approached cause I don’t wanna feel like a creep. But if a girl is giving off those signs that I’m so clearly missing I don’t want her to then think I don’t wanna be around her (cause I do if she’s interested) or that I think something is wrong with her.

This usually happens in the middle of a set too so it wouldn’t be great to talk. How do I initiate? I don’t know what I would say. I don’t even know how I would dance with her. Would I dance next to her? Grind? (which seems aggressive to initiate on my end to start) And then even what happens after that?

I know this is mostly just a personal hurdle that I need to get over myself and figure it out but some general guidance with the questions in the last section would be amazing. And I guess just knowing any general signs of interest too? I’d hate if I initiated and it ruined someone else’s time or was creepy for them. And on top of that if she was interested would love to vibe with a pretty girl. I know this was long but anything helps and thank you!

Use These Tips To Approach A Girl At A Music Festival

A lot of guys out there find it very hard to figure out when a girl (who might be dancing near them) wants to dance with them. In a vibrant, energetic and positive setting like an EDM festival, things might get confusing and as a guy, you might mix a few signals and end up with quite the unwanted negative response.

Approaching a girl you want to dance with could be quite easy if you take it slow, work your way step by step to smoothly get to know her without actually having this only goal in mind.

Approach a girl like you would a friend, by genuinely having a good time, moving, dancing & inviting her into that “vibe”. Don’t be a staring creep, don’t touch her at first, and keep your wild side under control.

Your initial attitude should always be friendly, fun and should always make the girl feel safe. You should never take advantage of any “opening” you might get. So it is important to not be all touchy-feely unless the girl has clearly consented to it, in addition to having her want to dance with you in the first place.

Simply Ask!

As it is well known in the EDM scene, the spirit of positivity and unity are important factors in the culture and the way people interact together whether they are on the dance floor of a festival or at home in a small neighborhood club. A major reason people go to these large gatherings is the fact that EDM festivals unite like-minded attendees, and give them a chance to bond and make new friends.

A good activity people enjoy doing during these events is talking to other people and getting to know them, no matter their gender. That works the exact same way when you’d like to approach a girl to eventually dance with her. The main goal here is to have fun and get to know her and how this music is important to her. So simply start by small talk and a lighthearted chat every now and then.

When you get to know the other person, you will get more comfortable and you will open up to them more. That’s exactly what your goal at this point should be. Get her to talk back, tell you stories and keep a conversation going. The chance will present itself at one point after that and you can simply ask her to dance with you. Simply done, as you have already talked for a while and gotten to know a little more about her, which clearly shows that you have not been red flagged.

Number One Goal is to have fun

We cannot stress on this more. The main point of the whole EDM festival experience is unity and fun in a positive environment. Then why take the fun out of it by obsessing about some girl you see there? Just have an absolute blast and everything else will fall in place. People get interested and attracted to positive, fun people who don’t look like they’re hungry to get physical with someone. Instead keep things light and fun, joke around with your friends and get to know others around you in a friendly way. The more fun you have, the more girls will be attracted to you.

Keep It Smooth, and Controlled

One of the major red flags for women everywhere is someone who comes up to them and instantly acts like they’ve known them for a long time. That’s a recipe for disaster. On another hand, nobody’s there to meet someone and hook up. People are there to have fun and enjoy the music, so don’t go there with that intention in mind. If it happens, that’s great, if not that’s not a problem either. Keeping that wild side of you under control will make you more appealing to the ladies who might end up approaching you themselves.

Don’t be the guy that just walks around sliding in behind girls and grinding up on them.

Don’t Be All Touchy

How would it feel if someone, out of nowhere, came at you and started grinding while you were out having a good time with your close friends? You’ll feel like a cheap piece of meat, like you’ve done something to look so cheap and accessible to anyone. Which is exactly the way you’d make a girl feel. Instead, how about finding any common point during your festival experience that might add some fun, a couple of laughs and some excitement to your day? A joke here, a fun comment there will do wonders. And it might actually become the basis of a great new friendship that might even grow beyond the festival itself.

They’re With Their Friends

All the girls at these festivals are attending the event with friends. There are very strong social agreements already in place to keep the group they came with together. Even if you see a girl alone that just means she’s temporarily separated from her friends and will be trying very hard to get back together with them. So at this initial stage you’re just some random guy at the festival. Note that her loyalty will be to her group and her friends. These friends came together and are planning to leave together, they’re sharing rides and probably a tent…etc.

So in order to actually initiate something with the girl you have in mind you have to make her feel comfortable around you. You might probably need to have the approval and trust of her group of friends; everyone needs to know you’re a cool guy and not a sick psychopath.

It also will depend on your confidence. Girls notice when you’re reciting lame pickup lines and when you’re actually approaching having one thing on your mind. It will instantly be a red flag and she will not reciprocate, leaving you with the unwanted rejection.

Give her something to work with.

Don’t just stand there, give her something to work with and move around, dance and enjoy doing what feels good to you in that moment. Nothing can put someone else off like a person standing there like a brick wall, not engaged with all that’s happening around them. It can be stupid playful fun, a quick jokey kind of move, or simply you can dance on your own close to her. Anything works at this stage, just initiate and the rest will come to fall in place as things progress. You’ll easily read the signals and go along.

How can you tell that she wants to dance with you?

Read their body language. Do you sense them trying to get closer to you? Are they reciprocating with the small talk? The dance moves? The eye contact? If you see their body at times pointing towards you, then you’re on the right track and the message should be clear.

On the other hand, if she’s pushing away, constantly trying to get back to her other friends then this is your cue to let her go. But don’t just pick a random person and start loitering around them and silently getting closer. This is the first creep signal the other person will get. And never assume after a random chat that the girl has gotten to know you and that you can move, grab and dance as you please. If you’ve given a girl a try and get denied, it’s best to avoid going around trying all the time. A few tries are fine, but don’t waste your night, she already rejected your offer, so you might as well enjoy the event by dancing by yourself or with your friends, which will be awesome and fun.

There will always be girls who will dance with anyone and will welcome any stranger. Some girls may seek you out. But you must come from the angle that the girl you want to dance with is not one of these girls. Yes it is about the physical and sometimes confidence.

Do Not Take Advantage

We all know that people are drinking during an EDM festival, and well, some might get under the influence of alcohol quite fast. So it is best to always assume that the girl you’re talking to or want to talk to will have been drinking for a while. Which brings me to my point: Never take advantage of someone’s ability to consent if they are under the influence.

Always make sure the girl you’re approaching is ok with what you’re saying or doing, and always make sure you’re not violating any personal boundaries. In addition to making you look like a creep, such acts will project this negative image of you to a larger group of people around, from the girl’s friends to the surrounding attendees.

Should you have the green light from the girl, always make clear non-creepy moves. Don’t try to do anything without the other person’s acknowledgement. In some way make sure they understand that you are getting closer, smile at them or make eye contact as you are moving closer to them or behind them. Try as much as possible to understand what their face and body are saying.

Girls Love A Guy Who Can Dance

But let’s answer the important question: why? Is it because a guy who can dance shows her a preview of his skills in bed? Is it a woman’s way of screening guys? Or maybe they don’t want to be embarrassed if they’re seen dancing with someone who has no clue about what he’s doing? Well, the truth is, it’s all of these and a little bit more.

In the eyes of girls and women, any skill is better than having no skill at all, let’s just start with that. You may think that dance is useless, but when you need to go at it, having a little know-how and showing that you know what you’re doing is a big plus.

As a social being, dance will show the girl more about you, your behavior, discomfort, and insecurities all will be easy for her to spot. As mentioned above, confidence is a key factor in this social game and if you show the girl that you can dance, you can easily get the confidence stamp. For example, if you start talking to this girl at the festival and things end up moving positively, you’ll be a better trophy on her arm if you end up being one of those guys who can dance! That’s just a huge plus.

There’s this unspoken rule in the social interactions world: you’ll know more about a person after a few minutes of dancing than after a few minutes of conversation. A good dancer might probably be a good sport, free-spirited and fun. He might be better at expressing his emotions non-verbally, a dancer might be more in control of his body, might be one of those people who move better, it might also suggest that if you’re dancing well in public, then you’re probably good in bed.

Another point we should mention as well is that dancing with a partner by default will put a guy in a leading position. As a guy, you can initiate, but she will always want to be respected. But it also gives women permission to get up close, physical and personal with a guy, a stranger at a festival with no commitment. The body contact, the sweating and breathing is all sexy and attractive and puts the attention on her.

Women love the attention, and a guy who knows how to dance can give her that attention. Add to that the love for the music and the artists and you’ve got a winning formula. If the dancing goes well, it makes her look good, and she feels beautiful. To everyone around, from her friends to other strangers, she looks like fun.

Dancing plays on a woman’s strength: it’s emotional, artistic and collaborative. If you dance well, then you’ve got an edge. On another hand, guys who can’t dance but who are playful and positive about it also seem to get the attention they need from the ladies.

To sum it all up, it’s important to be genuine, and fun and to simply ask for the chance to dance with the girl. Be approachable and friendly in all cases, and don’t focus on scoring a dance with the girl, this will always backfire. Know how to small talk and get a conversation going you’ve got many common points to start with. Should things go well, you can move on with the dancing by enjoying yourself, and not being all touchy feely and acting in an unwanted creepy way. Girls really like a guy who can dance but it is not a major requirement as long as you can make the experience fun and lighthearted. Always work with what you got, don’t overdo it and exaggerate if you feel like your moves are pushing your partner away. But never stand still, it’s an instant turn off.

How rave dances in a stopped world — Snob

The creators of the Moscow project Pole may seem absurd optimists: launching a fashion space with electronic music in the midst of a pandemic and in a country where relations between rave and the state are, to put it mildly, not easy. At the moment when music and dancing stopped for an indefinite time, they reinvented their brainchild, giving it the name "Social Club", where people have the opportunity not to lose their horizontal connections in a world that has lost them. Dmitry A. Bykov, on the instructions of "Snob", went to study a new point of attraction

It's not easy to enter Polje. The Yamskie Polye district in Moscow is traditionally industrial. It is easy to get lost among construction sites, identical buildings and fences. During the day you can still figure it out, but at night it is very difficult. And yet there is a sure-fire landmark—the gleaming gold tooth of the former Golden Palace Casino, which now exists in the form of the Golden Girls strip club (“121 girls for sophisticated guests,” the ad promises) and a string of equally dubious karaoke and restaurants.

You need to go through the 3rd Yamskoye Pole without being tempted by the cheerful hustle and bustle at the basement club BiziBar (girls in colored silk blouses are drunk - from 22 to 23 they get a drink for free; boys, not much more sober - white top, black bottom - arrange playful brawls ). You go further, further, to the barrier in the arch opposite the golden columns of the former casino. It is dark and quiet here, and a gloomy guard walks around the drooping validator. Don't pay any attention to him, just go ahead. As if you have been working in one of the hundreds of local offices for a long time.

At first it will seem that you are definitely going in the wrong direction. It is deserted here and only some incomprehensible electric buzz is heard. You are not at ease, you are looking for at least some signs in the semi-darkness - and then on one of the identical buildings you see a saving rhombus, in each corner of which there are letters, which add up to the word "field". You go further, see another rhombus, another - and finally you hear creaking and hooting, the sounds of piles being driven, as if one of the buildings suddenly remembered its industrial past. Here there is an exit to the "Field" - after a couple of guards, who will ask about "stabbing-cutting-forbidden", they applaud in a friendly way and let you into a small courtyard.

The Pole club was launched at the end of 2021. At that time, the Stereotactic team, which had long since found itself in the raver gentrification of industrial urban spaces, was full of hope. She already had successful launches of pop-up clubs like "Ema" and "Krugozor", about which it was customary to say: "like in Berlin." The same people took part in the creation of the legendary festival Outline (which was loudly canceled in 2016, not without the participation of officials), and also made parties in the already disappeared "Arma" and somehow still existing "Mutabor".

In an interview that was published shortly after the opening on the Afisha Daily website, the creators of the Field said that after wandering they found a more or less permanent home - the building of the former Nauka research and production association, where they once made spare parts for space industry (and communication with space is extremely important for every rave). And that the space, when stationary, does not lose mobility, because it remains modular: if you wish, you can arrange a cozy party in a small room, or you can open all three floors, add a yard - and throw a whole festival.

At the same time, the "Field" was not called exclusively a club or a concert venue - the creators spoke of it as a "cultural center" and "experimental and creative association." And the "Field" really united: at the opening, freeriders rode here (there is a small ramp in one of the rooms), they planned to open a whole floor for a media laboratory from the Sila Sveta studio (lectures, master classes, grants for young artists), attract Moscow restaurateurs and chefs cooks (there is a whole buffet here), call foreign artists, and not only electronic ones, but also just relax and have fun ...

As early as February 23, Polya's telegram announced a party with the participation of an Italian trans deconstructor. And then the channel went silent for a few days. And already on March 17, he announced the test launch of the "Social Club" - "a new place for peaceful meetings to give Muscovites a chance to breathe a little and gather strength, put their thoughts in order and get to know each other again." Music, of course, also remains a part of the new project, but not as an end in itself, but only as an occasion and background for communication.

I'm going to Joy's party at the Social Club. Confused, wandering, but still discovering the entrance. A friend of mine is sitting on the face, who used to sit at the gates of all techno frenzy like "Rabitsa", which was violently dispersed by the police a couple of years ago. We have a conversation with him: I notice how his look has changed, how he himself stooped - this was not the case with him even after the dispersal of the Chain-link. He does not bother to smile, if only out of social politeness, and at my stupidest question “How are you?” replies with the most serious look: "The world has stopped. " Probably not the best start to a party.

However, inside, not everyone seems to know about the stopped world. Smokers are chatting merrily in the courtyard, inside the bar is besieged by the public, above which fan-like lamps are lit in red neon. Concrete, old bricks in the walls, some kind of curtains, narrow aisles, an empty room by the toilets for an incomprehensible purpose. Two techno-cobras are dancing in a small opening - they have their own party here. Around chairs, armchairs, stools, benches, sofas, seats from the assembly halls. People really sit and talk. In a small hall with a ramp, there is another bar, DJs and a dance floor. Sounds industrial-techno, but not fast and not deafening.

I meet another acquaintance: swaying to the beat, we find out who and where. A friend asks if I was already on the second floor. "And what's in there?" - "Never mind. And a wardrobe. I go up to the second floor - a spacious hall intended for a media laboratory. It's completely empty here. Only there are some old screens, a pair of dwarf gilded lions, light is streaming from a small wardrobe, and next to it is an electronic scoreboard with a running line: “Well, nothing ... nothing ... Well, nothing ... nothing ...”

Another friend of mine is calling - he has already arrived and, unlike me, has not gotten lost. In the buffet/dining room with an open kitchen next to the dance floor, we have kebabs and french fries with cheese sauce. There's also rum baba with custard, but actually we're at a rave, what kind of custard are you out of your mind? In the bar we drink tinctures with wild names (apple - apple with rowan).

It's still difficult to get on the dance floor, not because you're shy, but because it's hard to explain to yourself - why dance now? Is this normal? After all, “the world has stopped”, and we are with it, right? There are more and more people, it is no longer a crowd, but a single organism. And then something familiar emerges from the roar (the DJ has long ceased to be delicate) - a breakbeat remix for "They won't catch up with us. " And we become part of this organism. And when the track of rapper Alyona Alyona starts to sound, the audience roars furiously. And it becomes clear that dance is not entertainment, but a natural physiological need of a free person. And there is no better social therapy than to dance out of yourself all that has accumulated ...

Pole club reopened on May 20th. There was a big party, a lot of people, the longest lineup, several dance floors, it was loud and fun. But I didn't go. And he came the next day, on Saturday. It was very quiet, sleepy, there were very few people, and the party did not seem to want to start. My friends arrived, we were talking, sitting in the dining room, and I finally decided on a rum baba...

The creators of the "Field" tried for a couple of weeks, but could not get in touch with me. First they prepared for the restart, then they got tired of it. Well, nothing, nothing ... But they asked me to tell you that now their space will work at full capacity: finally, undeveloped spaces will be mastered, including the veranda in the courtyard, there will be film screenings, workshops and lectures from the Beat Film Festival, once a week the actors of the Workshop Brusnikina will arrange storytelling performances here, promise collaborations with gastropubs, jazz festivals, vinyl markets, and so on and so forth and so on.

Of course, we all know the attitude of the state to the club movement in Russia. Therefore, sometimes such plans give unjustified optimism. But while the "Field" works. The new space "Supermetal" thunders and sparkles with parties. In the WIP mansion on the Yauza, it can be crowded. And in the "Mutabora" the uplifting roar is heard more and more often. At this time, in these circumstances, it is simply important for people to be with each other, to synchronize and see that there are also people nearby. And it doesn't matter what it is: a field, an abandoned factory or a social club.

how I went to a rave for the first time and why I want to go there again evening. At the entrance to the former Tetra Pak factory in the capital, colorfully dressed youth crowd. Someone is drinking juice, someone is dancing to the rhythmic sounds coming from a portable speaker of a goth-dressed guy - everything seems to be a little on edge. At 23:00 inside one of the workshops, a rave will start from

Schemes and international project Boiler Room (BR). The BR team came to Kyiv for the first time to capture the country's most famous electronic party.

I heard about the Scheme from many friends who are fond of techno. They talked about the unique atmosphere of the rave, which allows you to fully immerse yourself in the music, the quality of the lineups, wild dancing and complete freedom of action at parties. I decided to check everything for myself. She took out an acid yellow jacket from the closet and went to a Kyiv rave for the first time.

∴ ∴ ∴ ∴ ∴ ∴ ∴ ∴ ∴ ∴ ∴ ∴ ∴ ∴

Boiler Room - a series of closed parties that take place around the world. You can get to them at the personal invitation of the DJ or the organizers. The venue of the event is not known in advance, admission is free. Parties are streamed online on YouTube channel BR for 1.8 million subscribers.

Scheme is the largest rave in Ukraine, where electronic musicians from all over the world perform. The Scheme was first organized in 2014 and since then the party has become more and more popular. Raves are visited by 3-4 thousand people, whose average age is 16-25 years.

Boiler Room x Scheme . In Ukraine, the venue of the party became known in advance. Entrance to it was by ticket. They decided to upload the broadcast of the rave the day after the event, making a cut of eight parts.

Path to the Scheme

The queue to the Scheme is also part of the rave. So said the guy standing next to me with a “pineapple” of light dreadlocks on his head. His name is Vlad, he is 21 and often sniffs. At 23:25, we are freezing on the street near the factory. At the entrance are railroad tracks and a parking lot where some ravers catch up with their alcohol. Bottles are traditionally hidden in the bushes in order to return for them in the middle of the night. Near the queue for the rave is a man who looks like an artist. He holds a palette stained with paints and asks for alms: "For painting, for art, for a brush."

A mobile coffee shop has stopped at the gate, to which I will return more than once in the middle of the night. The line inside the territory stretches for 100 meters and is buzzing with talk of past raves and expectations of "something special from the Boiler Room".

There are four signposted aisles ahead: the first is for wristband wearers, the second is for those with e-tickets, and the other two are for those who don't like to buy in advance. My turn reached the second sign in 40 minutes.

Before checking tickets, guards with metal detectors look at the contents of bananas and ask them to take things out of the backpack. It is not possible to carry a bottle of 0.3 liters of mineral water - it pulls the pocket too noticeably. I had to leave it at the trash can.

After checking the items, the e-ticket is scanned and the "Scheme" stamp is put on the hand. They also hang a white ribbon of the same name on the wrist. Further down the course are more guards certifying the integrity of the bracelets. No one asks for my passport - and so it is clear that I am over 16.

After all the manipulations, you want to warm up faster in a warm room. The entrance to the large workshop is illuminated by lanterns. There is also a lounge area with outdoor heaters, which are filled with smoking ravers. At the entrance there is a wooden podium for sitting. To his left is a long corridor of dry closets.

Inside the Circuit

There is music playing in the room and not many people. To the left of the entrance is a bar, behind it is a large wardrobe. I offer the jacket to a smiling brunette in her twenties with glitter on her eyelids.

Hello. I noticed that the girls at the entrance were also wearing silver sequins. Is it today that you all have such a make-up?

— No, I shared this with everyone. Do you want me to give you glitter too? the cloakroom attendant asks seriously.

— No thanks. It just got interesting.

There is a square stage in the middle of the workshop. Around it are small podiums for dancing. The ceiling in the hall is very high, with windows, mesh and occasionally flashing glare of a strobe light. Behind the console is DJ Zolaa. The audience languidly dances, moving around the hall. Two 18-year-old guys in tracksuits from the 90s are playing cards.

— Are you going to film the whole game? their friend asks me amiably. He came up from behind, seeing that I was taking pictures. Glitter shimmers on his cheeks.

- Possibly. What are they playing?

— Yes, they just kill time before coming. Did you come by yourself? Let's go dance?

We are going to the stage, but we don't feel like dancing yet. There are few people, and it is more interesting to first look at the visitors. A blonde with high long ponytails in a red latex suit with white lenses walks by. Nearby, an anime girl in a black mask is dancing with a metal chain chained to the collar of a guy standing next to him.

It is customary to dress up at a rave as you like - here you can see a purple unicorn, a guy in a floor-length leather coat with a naked torso and a hipster dressed as a mechanic or a fireman. The local public is open to different manifestations of individuality and is not prone to discrimination. This gives a pleasant feeling of freedom, acceptance and security, which is rarely felt in Ukraine, being among people.

After the first performance, the host took the floor. He said that the BR team is now recording a rave and thanked the first DJ. The entertainer is a famous techno lover, husband of DJ Nastia and part-time MP of Ukraine Sergey Leshchenko. He delivered his speech twice: in Ukrainian for the public and in English for the camera. He pronounces words that he will then repeat in different variations between performances:

First of all, people go to Schema to listen to techno in the dark. People here like to dance not “beautifully”, but in the way the body wants.

12 Ukrainian electronic musicians performed during the night: Zolaa, John Object, Vladimir Gnatenko, Potreba, Wulfius, Konakov presents A-Body, Voin Oruwu, Stanislav Tolkachev, Nastya Muravyova, Recid, Sasha Zlykh, Tofudj.

Some played techno so hard that only the dead didn't dance to it. Some DJs concentrated more on experimental electronic music, designed more for listening, rather than for dancing.

To get a better view of the stage, I climbed onto the podium. A girl Christina was dancing near me, dressed and made like a secretary. She came to the Scheme for the first time and most of all wanted to hear a live from Nastya Muravyova.

I got the impression that it was during the performance of Nastya Muravyova that there was the highest density and activity on the dance floor. And also during the live Voin Oruvu. Tired of kneading their heels, the dancers sat in groups near the walls. The rest were jumping around in traditional rave sunglasses with bottles of water.

In the bars that were on both sides of the stage, water was sold for 40 UAH. The most expensive drink was Bushmills whiskey for a hundred, all classic cocktails with variations of cola / whiskey / rum / tonic went for 90 UAH

The bar also sold tea, which, unlike alcohol, did not run out after three in the morning. Around the same time, tickets ran out at the entrance. At the same time, not everyone who wanted to visit the rave got into the hall by that time. Demand exceeded supply.

A little tired of the smoke machine, I went outside. There were three ways to leave the hall, which led to two smoking rooms.

- This is the first Scheme where it is so cold, - the chilled girl said to her friend, - but Tolmachev, of course, warms.

Experienced ravers have complained about the unusual abundance of light, which makes it harder to switch off and fall into a dance trance.
