Everytime I go to EDC, I realize how much better Coachella is. Coachella is just so far above anything else. I say that not trying to diss the other dance events of the year, because I think those are great, but they do not match the intensity and enthusiasm of the Sahara Tent.

for real during the day time i was sober so i wasnt in the mood to dance. but at coachella you get to be seeing other bands from different genres and just totally different great crowds and energy. and the sahara tent does get popping but the kinetic field at edc was also popping as well but coachella goes harder longer stronger

EDC is a lot of fun but after going to both EDC and Coachella for my first time, i think i enjoyed the Sahara tent more then EDC....that said i agree that there is no way i would stay in the sahara tent the whole time if there was other good musical options to break it up haha

Definitely Coachella is better in my opinion, the vibe is so much friendlier. EDC was to many douchebags for my taste. Friday at EDC was one of the better nights of my life but that was probably cause I was front and center for the last 4 sets and the all the people in our area had become acquainted in between set-breaks and had each others backs.

Maybe because this is a Coachella board and the thread is about EDC?

These events you choose to go to aren't raves feather. Raves stopped happening in Cali before you ever went to one.

Jesus, not another "They were only raves when *I* was going to them, none of you will ever know my rave awesomeness"...

GuyInTucson
07-27-2010, 12:18 PM
When people start tossing around phrases that someone "will always have rave in his heart" it's fucking vomit-inducing.

it's not about "Oh I went to raves over ten years ago so i am cooler than you." It's about people floating phrases like that, that have no clue what they are talking about. You get on my case yet people who constantly talk about PLUR, and "rave" like it boosts their fucking status as a partier are ok...

For the record - the notion of PLUR did NOT originate in the rave scene. The idea of Peace, Love, Unity, Respect is something that has been around long before raves and it was popularized in the 70's and 80's by Afrika Bambaataa and the Zulu Nation.

That's why when I hear any "raver" under the age of 30 talk about "PLUR" and "rave" it instantly makes me roll my fucking eyes.

Today's events are NOT raves. You don't throw a "rave" at a football stadium and draw over 100,000 people. It's no more of a rave than when Paul Oakenfold spins a three-hour set at House of Blues.

The last real rave I went to was in Phoenix in 1999. The last one I went to in Cali was in 96 or 97. After that they were nothing more than giant electronic mainstream concerts or a bunch of drug addicts throwing desert parties to make money.

how were the events back in the day any different? weren't they always just an excuse for people to get together in bacchian revelry, dance to music, and ingest certain chemicals if one chooses?

People have been parroting the same thing you just said for longer than you have probably been raving. I remember the cool kids disdainfully writing off the rave scene as "dead" in 1992.
And all the parties in 1996 had all the same plurtards and problems that today's massives do.

The moral is, no one gives a shit. Let them call it a rave, it has absolutely no effect on you, the "scene", "real raves", the size of Fatburger hamburgers, or anything at all whatsoever.

GuyInTucson
07-27-2010, 02:05 PM
Well for one, I was one of the youngest people going to them back then. It didn't cost any money to put together and the DJ's played for nothing.

Everything was donated and it was held in a remote location. There were no fliers or public advertising for the event. You met someone at a certain spot, got a map to another spot where someone directed you where to go.

There also werent a bunch of 15 year olds dominating the event. Most of the folks were already legal adults. I only went to a handful of raves in my life and they were nothing like EDC, HARD or Ultra.

I am not saying I didn't enjoy the parties after those events. My all-time favorite events are massives, but I never called them raves. Anyone who went to a legit underground rave (which were considered to be the only real raves) back then knows exactly what I am talking about.

To an extent, they still exist on a smaller scale, but I highly doubt the majority of people here under 30 have been to many authentic raves. i'm 28 and I think I've only been to four or five and none within the past decade.

I am not trying to trash fans of electronic music or people who go to parties at all. But when people start saying they live to "rave" and are all about "PLUR" it gets on my nerves. Especially when it's what they constantly talk/post about over and over.

When someone calls EDC a rave, it strikes the same nerve as when someone classifies all electronic music as "techno" because that's not what it is.

Go talk to an old school punk rocker that used to go to shows at CBGB's in the 70's and tell them Warped Tour with Blink 182 and The Offspring is a "punk show" and see what they say to you.

07-27-2010, 02:18 PM
that is legitimate reasoning. but you cant knock the people going to events today for the same reasons that people went to events of yesteryear; to dance and get amongst it and blow off some steam. it's the money-hungry promoters who took what was popular in underground rave communities and produced it writ large. if i had the choice to go to a chill underground party as explained or a modern day massive i would certainly choose the former.

I dunno, I went to plenty of parties that were considered raves in every sense and they had big productions, big $$ DJs, and fliers galore.

Oh, I am not knocking anyone for going at all. They are a blast. I personally don't care about who wants to make money and who doesn't.

It just strikes a huge nerve when people label things incorretly. I have no idea why at all; it just drives me up the wall to no end.

I get the same way when people categorize all electronic dance music as "techno" or when a station that plays strictly R&B says their station is where "Hip Hop lives".

An absolute definition of the word "rave" as designated as a signifier for some type of event with electronic based music is impossible. The context of its various historical situations and casual usage as a colloquialism by a wide variety of disconnected parties supersede any possibility of a fixed understanding of the term.

Oh everyday.
But I really see "That's not a rave! This is a rave!" arguments as especially asinine, considering it's all been said for decades now, and the end result is always the same.

It really doesn't matter what a party is called, if you're having a good time that's all that matters. Raves never were about causes, movements and so on. Granted the early days had more of a subversive feel to it, but the bottom line is the #1 reason raves exist is because people (especially younger people) need release.

Most people who were ravers "back in the day" couldn't care less about what goes on at them today, they've mostly moved on to things that suit them better now. I still like to go out raving once in a blue moon, but my old ass doesn't care too much for the clusterfucks anymore. And I wouldn't rip on anyone in their teens for wanting to go to them. Fuck, when I was in high school, we had to drive all around socal to find shitty DeMolay dances. Don't ask.

Sorry if this is all over the place, I hit the vape in the middle of typing it.

Rave on.

who gives a fuck what the actual definition of "rave" is or when they stopped or started existing. none of that has any bearing on the fact that people who used the word all the time, from 1992 until present day, are fucking brainless tools.

I hear you and I am not ripping on teens for wanting to go; that would make me a hypocrite. I preferred them in my teen years to house parties and school dances. I just refuse to call them raves (at least on purpose lol).

And I honestly usually don't share these opinions outloud, but after reading certain people's posts since I joined these boards, it just became gut-wrenching and I felt the need to vent.

Nothing personal against anyone really.....shit, I would go to EDC, Ultra, Nocturnal consistentlyif I could afford it and didn't have a family.

Coachella > EDC. I remember walking back to the car after Saturday night at Coachella. Everyone was walking through the dirt parking lot kicking up dust and there were huge generator lights,, and all the moths were flying around. people sitting on top of their campers drinking beers sharing good vibes. And I stopped and turned to my friends and just said, "This is the coolest thing ever."

EDC is cool, but I think it is designed around drugs. Coachella is designed around music.

There is nothing like watching an act on the outdoor stage during sunset and looking back over the palm trees towards the mountains.

Coachella is just on a whole other level. It is a festival, not a massive.

After leaving EDC this year, I felt dirty and ready to sleep. After coachella, I felt amazing and ready to party
