Are you looking to throw an awesome private rave party but are worried it might not be as fun as you’d hope? Keep reading. This guide will keep your mind at ease regarding throwing the perfect party.


Create Your Guest List

Your guest list will make or break your party. Don’t just invite anyone and everyone. You want to attract the right type of people. 

While it’s true that you want the party to be exclusive and invite only those who you know will be interested, it’s also important that you invite more people than you need. This is to ensure that you’ll have enough people at the party in case guests cancel.


Choose Your Venue Wisely

Parties are more fun when they’re held in unique and exciting locations. This is especially true for rave parties. If you want your party to stand out, you’re going to have to find an interesting venue.

An interesting venue could be a warehouse, a large hall, the beach, an abandoned building or any other place you can think of. The possibilities are endless. Just be sure that the place you choose has enough room for your guests.


Decorate the Space

Decorating the space is the final step before the party. This is the last chance you have to get people excited, especially if you choose a bizarre or exciting location.

Have a theme for your party so that everything makes sense. For example, if you choose a warehouse, you can turn it into a mosh pit. This will leave your guests wondering just how you pulled it off.


Have a Good Playlist

Music is the most important thing at any party. This is especially true for rave parties, where the music is a vital part of the experience.

If you’re going to throw a successful rave party, you’re going to have to have a good playlist prepared. Try to have at least 3 hours worth of music. This ensures that you won’t run out of music during the party.

Your playlist should be fun, loud and high energy. Make sure to add a good mix of old and new songs. Also, be sure you have a good balance of fast, slow and midtempo songs.


Set Up a Drink Table

In addition to having great music, you’re going to need a drink table at your party. What’s more, you’re going to want to make sure your drink table has high-quality drinks on it.

Don’t buy cheap drinks, but also don’t go crazy and buy the most expensive drinks you can find. Your guests will appreciate a drink table with a good selection of drinks on it, especially if they’re of good quality.

This is especially true if you invite people who don’t drink much. You want to ensure that they have no reason to turn down your party.
