A rave party is an all-night dance party to electronic music amid pulsating strobe lights, a barrage of neon colors at a nightclub, outdoor festival, warehouse or other private property or even in public spaces popular in many parts of the world since the 1980's. It's typically a wild, wacky, no-holds-barred affair and goes double for the clothing, featuring performances by DJ's. Rave also means excellent, great, or brilliant, and can be used to describe any genre similar to art performance. Here you can do and express yourself without limit.
