Once you have purchased your tickets, you will get a confirmation code. This is what you need to show when you arrive at the venus to the ticket staff.

They said we wouldn’t last, and 36 years later here we are.

Raving went beyond the lies the mainstream media told about our culture and went beyond its ending that the commercial dance music press tried to predict and orchestrate. The further the police and the politicians tried to stop us, the harder we pushed back. No matter how many times the DTI shut down our radio stations, the more passionate we came back on air. No one stopped the music, the good times, the families that were started, the marriages, the friendships, the hugs, the memories, the fashion, the cultural shift we created, the hands in the air, the love, the art, the creativity, the energy. The rave scene from 1988 to 2024 has been a magical movement.

On March 2nd we return with our most inspiring Rave Story to date. We cannot wait to come together with you all once again.
