I was talking to an acquaintance this weekend and somehow the subject turned to legal raves. He is worried about her because of her age and all the drug problems in her family. When I was in high school raves were underground and held in random warehouses. These types of raves are still around in addition to raves that are legal, advertised and heavily promoted. Ravers will tell you it is not about the drugs, but about the music and the positive vibe.
There were people by the door throwing up. The ages range from but most are probably It is about P. Mostly 16 and up but some may be younger. Would you want one of your younger siblings to go to one of these raves? I guess I would have a little bit of a problem with her seeing some of the weird people who are drugged out.
It is a good thing if your kids ask your permission to go to a rave as many kids sneak out. Though these events may be safer than underground raves, I believe the same concerns of overdose and assault still exist. Parenting a teenager is about giving them some freedoms to make mistakes and some boundaries to protect them from not reaching their full potential.
However, this is a time you may want to say no. Resources: Raves: Definition and History. Ecstasy and Brain Damage. FocusOnGreat — Great points. Many of the youth we work with that go to the raves are having issues with substance abuse so it definately is a problem that needs to be looked at.
Thanks for your insight.Speaking at the family home in Croydon, Daniel's father Tim described him as "a lovely mercurial kid". He was up for adventure. He was a really normal kid. He spent a bunch of his spare time with his girlfriend and played a lot on his Xbox. This was the first time he'd taken anything and if it could happen to him it could happen to anyone. We very much want to get that message across.
Mr Spargo-Mabbs added that Daniel's girlfriend, who had gone to the same school as him, was "traumatised" by his death.
Police believe Daniel Spargo-Mabbs may have taken ecstasy before he fell unconscious and died. Drugs charity, DrugScope, says some young people are still taking too many risks, without understanding the consequences. It certainly underlines the risks that young people are continuing to take after all these years with ecstasy and club drugs, maybe from people they don't know.
Buying drugs and not having a clue what's in them. It also underlines the randomness of this. Many people will experiment with ecstasy. A 16 year old boy has died after apparently taking ecstasy at an illegal rave in Hayes at the weekend.
He died later in hospital. Two men from Croydon have been arrested in connection with student's death. Police were called on Saturday, 18 January, at approximately The year-old boy was taken by ambulance to a west London hospital believed to be suffering from the effects of a drugs overdose.

The word also means excellent, great, or brilliant, and can be used to describe any genre of music and entertainment. At its broadest definition, "rave" can be used to describe many forms of music, not limited to just rave music- which is why fusion genres exist, even within rave music itself.
DJs at rave events play electronic dance music on vinyl, CDs and digital audio from a wide range of genres, including techno hardcorehouse  basslinedubstep New Beat and post-industrial.
Occasionally live musicians have been known to perform at raves, in addition to other types of performance artists such as go-go dancers and fire dancers. The music is amplified with a large, powerful sound reinforcement systemtypically with large subwoofers to produce a deep bass sound.
The music is often accompanied by laser light showsprojected coloured imagesvisual effects and fog machines. While some raves may be small parties held at nightclubs or private homes, some raves have grown to immense size, such as the large festivals and events featuring multiple DJs and dance areas e.
Some electronic dance music festivals have features of raves, but on a larger, often commercial scale. Raves may last for a long time, with some events continuing for twenty-four hours, and lasting all through the night. Law enforcement raids and anti-rave laws have presented a challenge to the rave scene in many countries. In the late s in LondonEngland the term "rave" was used to describe the "wild bohemian parties" of the Soho beatnik set.
People who were gregarious party animals were described as "ravers". Presaging the word's subsequent s association with electronic musicthe word "rave" was a common term used regarding the music of mids garage rock and psychedelia bands most notably The Yardbirdswho released an album in the United States called Having a Rave Up.
Along with being an alternative term for partying at such garage events in general, the "rave-up" referred to a specific crescendo moment near the end of a song where the music was played faster, more heavily and with intense soloing or elements of controlled feedback. It was later part of the title of an electronic music performance event held on 28 January at London's Roundhouse titled the "Million Volt Light and Sound Rave".
The event featured the only known public airing of an experimental sound collage created for the occasion by Paul McCartney of The Beatles — the legendary Carnival of Light recording.
With the rapid change of British pop culture from the mod era of — to the hippie era of and beyond, the term fell out of popular usage. The Northern soul movement is cited by many as being a significant step towards the creation of contemporary club culture and of the superstar DJ culture of the s.
Many argue that Northern soul was instrumental in creating a network of clubs, DJs, record collectors and dealers in the UK, and was the first music scene to provide the British charts with records that sold entirely on the strength of club play. DJ, Laurence 'Larry' Proxton being known for this method. DJ personalities and their followers involved in the original Northern soul movement went on to become important figures in the house and dance music scenes.
The perception of the word "rave" changed again in the late s when the term was revived and adopted by a new youth culture, possibly inspired by the use of the term in Jamaica. In the mid to late s, a wave of psychedelic and other electronic dance musicmost notably acid house music, emerged from acid house music parties in the mid-to-late s in the Chicago area in the United States.
In the late s, the word "rave" was adopted to describe the subculture that grew out of the acid house movement.

Acid house music parties were first re-branded "rave parties" in the media, during the summer of by Genesis P-Orridge Neil Andrew Megson during a television interview; however, the ambience of the rave was not fully formed until the early s. Inraves were held "underground" in several cities, such as BerlinMilan and Patrasin basements, warehouses and forests.
British politicians responded with hostility to the emerging rave party trend. Politicians spoke out against raves and began to fine promoters who held unauthorized parties.
Police crackdowns on these often unauthorized parties drove the rave scene into the countryside. The word "rave" somehow caught on in the UK to describe common semi-spontaneous weekend parties occurring at various locations linked by the brand new M25 London orbital motorway that ringed London and the Home Counties. It was this that gave the band Orbital their name.
These ranged from former warehouses and industrial sites in London, to fields and country clubs in the countryside. The genre "rave", also known as hardcore by early ravers, first appeared amongst the UK "acid" movement during the late s at warehouse parties and other underground venues, as well as on UK pirate radio stations.

Fri, Jun 5, A year-old girl died Tuesday of a suspected drug overdose after attending a rave over the weekend at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum that had a minimum age requirement of The girl, identified by family members as Sasha Rodriguez, was one of two rave attendees who were in critical condition at California Hospital Medical Center after the 14th annual Electric Daisy Carnival. Now I have to plan her funeral.
Sasha, who lived in the Atwater neighborhood, died shortly before p. Tuesday, according Katreena Salgado, a spokeswoman for the hospital. She and the other critically ill patient had been taken to the downtown Los Angeles hospital by ambulance directly from the venue, officials said. Both were treated for drug intoxication in the intensive care unit.
Outside California Hospital Tuesday night, friends and family said that when Sasha was found, she did not have identification. When they got the call that Sasha had been taken to the hospital, they had no idea how serious her condition was. A year old friend who was with Sasha at the rave said Sasha was dancing, got hot and began quickly drinking cold water. Sasha passed out, hitting her head on the floor. The friend who was with her tried to shield her body but told her family that the venue was so crowded, people stepped on them.
They throw it, they rent it, yet they fill it full of minors in a setting where everybody knows what a rave is about. On Monday, Dr. Caitlin Reed, a physician from the U. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on assignment with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, said she was at the rave on both days and did not see anyone checking identification.
There were many, many younger teenagers present. When asked how a year-old was able to get into the event when the minimum age for entry was 16 without a legal guardian, Lynch said he needed to investigate. Brian Johnston, the emergency room medical director at White Memorial Medical Center, called the death tragic.
Johnston is among doctors who have said that raves at the publicly owned facility put people at risk. He believes that such parties should no longer be permitted at the Coliseum, which was built on state land and is under the authority of a joint city, county and state commission.
Sanders said he plans to call a special meeting of the commission to review all criteria required for organizers using the venue.
