    Default At what age are you too old to be at a rave?

    As someone whose 30th birthday darkly approaches, I figured it'd be fun to get people's opinions on a very important and serious matter:

    At what age is it time to hang up the glowsticks?

    A: If you have to ask, you're already too old. Loser.
    B: When you start to feel noticeably older than everyone else.
    C: You're never too old!

    While I was rocking at concerts years ago, raves were a big thing out here in the desert...way out in the desert! Whether it was secret and invitation only, or word of mouth, I wish I'd known back then what I know now about the music cuz I would have probably been there! Just imagine the wide open desert with 100's of people dancing under the stars with the music pumping, and no one there to stop or put limits on them...

    life is way too short to set such limits on oneself!!.. my rule of thumb is as long as you can rave safely then by all means live it up..

    that being said, i dont think kids younger than 18 should be taking ecstacy/acid/ketamine because 1- that's probably the most formable time in one's life in terms of physical/mental capacity (i.e. not a good time to do hard drugs) and 2- they should be concentrating on school, not raving..

    lulz. My friends and I watched that guy for like five minutes. He was all about it.

    Last year I saw some fat, old business man wearing a suit dancing his ass off all night at The Labyrinth in Detroit.
    I say as long as you're doing it right and not mackin' on young girls, being weird, etc., you're never too old.

    I'm sorry, but you are never too old to rave. When you put a limit on it, that's when you are just limiting yourself. You may not LIKE the raves when you are old, but I know I will be venturing back to taste it again every new decade. Whenever I am at the raves, and see the old ones coming back with a vengeance, I always give them some love, share a dance, let them know they are awesome and welcome. Keep the spirit of freedom of expression alive as long as you can.

    I will never stop raving. They will find a fossilized glowstick next to the PLURasaurus bones.

    The late 1950s in London saw the term "rave" used to describe the "wild bohemian parties" of the Soho beatnik underground.[4] The word was later used in the burgeoning mod youth culture of the early 1960s as the way to describe any wild party in general. A variation of the term was "rave-up" (chiefly British) - a term popularized by the band The Yardbirds.[5] People who were gregarious party animals were described as "ravers". Pop musicians such as Keith Moon of The Who and Steve Marriott of The Small Faces and Clare Willans were self-described "ravers".
    The music may change, but the principle is the same.


    You're never too old to be at a rave if you're into music. Wearing that candy shit-well that's just a different question.

    Well being as my first time was at age 36 I think I may have a few more good years in me. At first I felt a little out of place considering there were girls younger then my daughter wearing their underwear. But after a few drugs I forgot that part.

    After seeing pictures of TallGuy, I'd say whatever age he is is the cutoff point.

    What a welcome relief! This means we only have to put up with Randy avoiding meetups in less than 3 more years! Woo-hoo!
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    As someone whose 30th birthday darkly approaches ??????????
    WTF??? Darkly approaches @30??? Age is but a number,TallGuy! Granted, as the number gets higher, shit begins to lower, but as long as your attitude is still up and your mind is still open, the lights turning dark only means the show is about to begin!

    Ironically, the show doesn't end until the music stops...

    Another question to start asking yourself is at what fat are you too fat to be at a rave.
