These gatherings are notorious for their booming sound systems, powerful subwoofers, and music played at ear-splitting volumes. The visual aspect is equally electrifying, featuring laser displays, image projections, neon signs, and fog machines. Rave parties typically kick off after dark, often well past midnight, and keep going until the early hours of the morning. DJs curate a mix of musical genres, sometimes complemented by live musicians and dancers.

Many of these gatherings took place in unconventional venues like abandoned warehouses. It’s worth noting that the popular Bollywood song ‘Dum Maro Dum’ drew inspiration from the concept of a rave party.
