The Family that Raves Together

Dance Music unites us…

Since the 80's - when True Underground & Rave Culture was born - our Elektrik Eventz Founders (Gen Xers of course) have been a part of it. Now with kids (and grandkids) of their own who grew up immersed in the Underground sounds and who they've taken to music festivals all their lives, it's only natural that the concept of a Family Rave be the next step. The initial idea occurred in 2013 when they were launching Elektrik Eventz (and Elektrik Fantasy Festival), but at the time venues weren't too keen on the idea, so they put it on the back burner, silently perfecting the concept over the next few years. It wasn't until 2016 that they noticed family raves had started across the pond in the UK and seemed to be gaining in popularity, and it was right then that they knew they had been on the right side of history the whole time; America just "wasn't ready."

 

BUT IT IS NOW.

And Elektrik Eventz is ready to deliver it, as only O.G. Ravers can!

 

But it won't just be a "family rave," it'll be a conscious and sustainable one.

Because we're PLURveyors of Conscious Dance Culture which means our events will always be about living more mindfully:

  • SUSTAINABLE / ECO-FRIENDLY (SINGLE-USE PLASTIC-FREE!) & HEALTH-CONSCIOUS (ORGANIC/VEGAN FOODS & SNACKS) – INSPIRING THE YOUNGER GENERATIONS TO MAKE BETTER CHOICES FOR OUR PLANET HOME (EARTH) AND THEMSELVES (AND THEIR FUTURE FAMILIES)

  • AN OPPORTUNITY TO TEACH THE YOUNGER GENERATIONS ABOUT OUR DANCE MUSIC LEGACY, TRULY EXPERIENCE ITS ENORMOUS PRESENCE AND HOW IT CONTINUES TO “SHAPE” THEIR MUSIC TODAY, AS WELL AS TEACH THEM ABOUT RESPECTING THE HISTORY & FALL IN LOVE WITH THE ORIGINALS

  • BONDING AND HEALING AS A FAMILY THROUGH MUSIC AND DANCE. YOUR KIDS AND GRANDKIDS WILL SEE YOUR AUTHENTIC, FREE SPIRIT (THE SPIRIT THAT WAS ON FULL DISPLAY WHEN YOU WENT TO RAVES AS A "KID").

 

Another thing that will set our family raves apart from the others is the fact that we'll be hosting exclusive Gen-X Grandparents & Grandkids-specific events!

SO....

IF YOU'RE READY TO EXPERIENCE THE U.S.'S FIRST SUSTAINABLE 'FAMILY RAVE'

WE'RE LAUNCHING IT AT ELEKTRIK FANTASY MASQUERAVE FESTIVAL!

(and you're gonna love what we named it)

 

We work hard to make sure each event is unique – different DJs, creative themes and guest artists running everything from hula-hoop demonstrations to synthesiser workshops to interactive light installations.

Our parties are held in interesting and quirky venues; clubs, arts spaces, festivals, woods and pubs, which help create the ambience of being at a real rave.
