You know that you love to go to raves and music festivals. But why do you love it so much? Is it the rave clothing, the culture, the music, the dancing, or something else altogether? What is it about raves and music festivals that we love so much? Well, we looked into the science of it and discovered exactly what it is that makes raves so appealing. Keep reading to learn the scientific reasons behind your love of raves.
When you attend a rave or music festival, you probably experience a euphoric feeling of total freedom of relaxation. While many factors contribute to that feeling, music is a key one. It has been scientifically tested and proven that music relieves stress. So, by attending events that are focused on and driven by music, you’re putting yourself into a stress-free, worry-free soon. Who wouldn’t enjoy that?
Whether you’re an introvert or extrovert, socialization of some kind is still considered a central need for human existence. We all need other people, and it certainly helps when those people share the same interests we do. When you’re at a rave or music festival, you’re surrounded by others who are enjoying the same music and activities as you. Socialization improves our mood and overall mental state, helping to ward off feelings of loneliness and depression. Raves are an enjoyable place to be, at least in part, because of other ravers!
Of course, you could listen to music with friends anytime, anywhere. And while you might enjoy that too, it’s just not the same as a rave, is it? So what makes raves and music festivals so much more appealing? The answer is in the element of escapism that is so prevalent at these kinds of events.
Just look around at the outfits at a rave, and you’ll easily see escapism at work. People dress as all kinds of characters like dragons, fairies, and unicorns. And even those who aren’t dressed like a specific character are still most likely adopting a totally different persona than the one they exude in everyday life. When you’re at a rave or music festival, you get to let go of everything and even become somebody else if you want to.
Contrary to what some people think about raves, they’re not only attended by teens and 20-somethings looking to shirk their everyday duties. Working professionals often attend these events too. You’ll find doctors in light-up rave boots, lawyers in bodysuits, and business executives in bikini tops and booty shorts. These events are a way to escape the stresses of everyday life and, at least for a moment, enter a world that is fun, exciting, and completely judgment-free.
So, there you have it—scientific reasoning behind your love for raves and a perfect excuse to buy yourself a new sexy rave costume. Be sure to check out our online catalog for a huge selection of outfits for your next rave. It’s for science, after all!
