It doesn't take long into your first party to realise that ravers are a completely different breed. While the city sleeps we pound the dance floor and we keep going as long as there's music playing. Today we're going to have a look at the fundamental differences between ravers and normal people.
Normal People: Get 8 Hours A Night
Normal people have their sleep apps and their memory foam mattresses.
Ravers: Don't Sleep
Ravers 'rest their eyes' while the boss isn't looking.
Normal People: Listen To The Worst Music
Cookie-cutter pop, X-Factor runners up, Country & Western... there's some truly bad stuff out there.
Ravers: Listen To The Best Music
If it's not categorisable by a BMP then we're not interested.
Normal People: Talk About People
A few drinks down the pub turns into bitching about colleagues and work gossip.
Ravers: Talk About Music
Have you heard the new Denis Sulta track? No? Then let me talk about it for five hours.
Normal People: Shake Hands With Strangers
"Hello nice to meet you"
Ravers: Hug Strangers
"I love you, you're a unicorn person"
Normal People: Dance For An Hour
Normal people are always looking for an excuse to get of the dancefloor - smoke break, go to the bar, toilet, call the ex...
Ravers: Dance For Days
Ravers are chanting "one more tune" after 17 straight hours
Normal People: End The Night With A Kebab
Lights up, kebab, uber, bed. Rinse. Repeat. It's like the hours between 5am and midday don't even exist for these people.
Ravers: End The Night With An After Party
Ravers have nothing against kebabs, we love them, just not when it's time for a party.
