The search for Molly went cold as memories of her faded over the years. From undercover cops at events to our fellow ravers, everyone was looking for Molly. The news spread like wildfire, but no one ever found her. Flyers, shirts and even posts on social media were made in hopes of finding Molly, but no luck. Top DJs were also part of the search offering up resources in hopes of finding her. This tragic event has taught me a few things, that ravers will have each others back, this community does care and PLUR exists. The effort everyone put into this search gives me hope that this scene will never die.
Over the years I’ve met, made friends and have crossed paths with many souls at EDM festivals. I am one to definitely notice everything around me and have admired others and their styles along with the types of people I normally encounter at these music festivals. With that said these are the types of people I normally notice at EDM festivals
The aspiring social media model:
They can normally be found in groups with cell phone in hand and wearing the latest from IHeartRaves. They strive on attention and their bestie getting the best angled photos to upload on IG. Watch out for the 10% off promo codes.
These guys are known to be in groups and don’t care about your PLUR vibes. They´re mostly found at the main stage and at the trap/dubstep stage getting “bitches”. It´s believed these chads mosh to Trance music as well. They claim to be ravers, but have only know about the EDM scene for 6 or so months.
The undercover cop:
This one is dead obvious to spot. These type of people awkwardly stand alone or in a group that has no more than 3 people and generically dress the same with generic graphic tees, each wearing a pair of new $200 running shoes and oakley sunglasses. The bonus to the undercover cop outfit is either a pair of camo pants or jeans.
The friendliest and most accepting group of people you’ll come across. With words of experience and festival know how’s since all they’ve been doing for the past 3 years is traveling from fest to fest. Wooks are known for their matted hair and their obsession for pins and crystals. Dressed in the most laidback chilled outfits which is usually made by the homie.
The most positive and uplifting group of people you can find at a festival with their hand made bead bracelets, masks, cuffs and perlers. These are the creative ones that take their passion to an art form. Always down to trade with whoever and always looking for a great time.
The Crafty Ones:
Pretty much anyone with a real cool skill from shufflers, people who poi, orbiters, glovers, hoopers…. These people take their craft seriously and try to make a name for themselves with a growing influence on social media. You’ll find these type of people pretty much everywhere.
The Techno/House Snobs:
Their taste in music is god and no one can do better. These people will look at a lineup and shit on 90% of the artists. These are the people you’ll never see at a EDM festival unless you like house/techno because they’re never leaving the tent.
Known for guarding the rail at the front and giving the security a great workout for holding the rails while bass heads head gang. These bass heads will throw there necks at anything with a build up and bass drop.
Depending on what festivals you’ve been to the list may vary.
