festival

download_48Want to enjoy your next dance music event – then follow these tips and make the most of it.

Make Sure To Wear Comfortable Shoes (non open toed ones)

One of the major determining factors of whether you will be able to enjoy yourself at one of these events is being dressed comfortably. Make sure to wear shoes that you will be able to dance in (it should also be a pair that you don’t care too much if they end up getting destroyed) – it could be one of the worst decisions you ever made to wear flip flops since people will be trampling all over your feet. Invest in cute flats or converse shoes. Heels are a definite no.

Have Enough Cash On Hand To Buy Water

If you are planning to go to a rave that is going to last a while, you will need to have plenty of water. A regular set will typically last 4 to 5 hours, and marathon sets may go as long as 10 to 11 hours. So make sure you and your friends stay hydrated to survive the night. There are going to be lots of sweaty people around.

What To Wear

Don’t overdress and make sure you are comfortable. You can wear shorts and a cute crop top that has a bandeau. Here is a good site.

Find out who the DJ is going to be and the songs that they will be playing.

Are you going to wear an Armin Only t-shirt to a Markus Schulz set? Do you know who is going to be performing and the kind of music they will be playing? Do you understand what the difference is between house, techno and trance? Before you go, make sure you have these things figured out, otherwise you could end up looking like a fool.

Take A Fanny Pack To Put Your Phone In

Fanny packs have made a comeback and they are very useful to have if you would like to carry things with you without needing to lug around a purse or backpack. The amount of phone thieves is increasing, and you don’t want to be forced to replace your new phone.

Accessorize

Dance music is a colourful genre and as such you should accessorise before you go to any event. Our advice is to ensure you have your sun glasses, glow stick and whatever else before you get there as it will be a lot cheaper than purchasing them there.

Go With Your Significant Other Or Good Friends

If you haven’t ever been to a rave, the most fun part of all is enjoying it with your significant other or good friends. It can be okay to go with people that you don’t really know very well, however better to stay with those you know unless you are really sure about them.

Plan For How You Will Be Getting Home

Make sure you are prepared. Know who will be driving and all the details about that. Plan on how you will be getting home, and have a place to crash (in case the designated driver isn’t okay to drive). The last thing you want is to end up in the headlines of the news tomorrow.

Take Earplugs With You

If you don’t want to develop tinnitus (ringing in the ears), then make sure to take high-quality earplugs with you. On Amazon they are just $15. If there isn’t time for you to order a set online, just go to Walmart and buy a cheap disposable pair for $3.

Take Sunglasses With You

The lights are extremely bright, and you might not like staring directly into the sun whenever you are in a crowded, dark place. So take some sunglasses with you.

Take Scrunchies Or A Hair Tie With You

If is going to get very hot, so by the time that the night is over you will most likely be dripping sweat (particularly if it is indoor). So take hair tie with you just in case you need it so that you don’t have to suffer from all of the humidity.

Be Ready To Be Pushed, Squished And Touched

Depending on which event you attend, most likely there will be lots of people who are jammed into one room. The action always occurs close to the stage, so be prepared for people trampling, squishing and pushing you.

Enjoy, Relax And Have Lots Of Fun

Despite all of the potential downfalls, most likely your rave will end up being the most memorable for you. So keep the above tips in mind, relax, enjoy it and have lots of fun!

Interview: Caddy Pack

nikkisiixx interviews caddy pack

After Caddy Pack’s GOOD mixtape release and her music video entitled KANYE, I decided to get to know Caddy Pack a little bit better. We discuss her collaboration with Waka Flocka Flame, being a female rapper in Germany, her cat obsession, and what’s in store for her in 2016.

caddy-pack-kanyeNIKKISIIXX: What inspired your stage name Caddy Pack?
CADDY PACK: I came up with the name Caddy Pack when I first started rapping at the age of 14. Back then everyone was mentioning Cadillac cars in their songs and I thought Cadillac were so cool! So I changed the spelling a bit and kept Pack because that’s my last name and my stage name was set! Ever since that, I just stuck to it and never changed it.

NIKKISIIXX: What was the experience like working with Waka Flocka Flame on “I BET SHE GO” track?
CADDY PACK: A great experience! I have been able to open up for two of his shows in Germany and he’s such a cool guy. Opportunities like this mean a lot to me, they make me really thankful and motivate me to keep going.

NIKKISIIXX: Who do you think will appreciate your music?
CADDY PACK: I think anyone who likes to have a good time and party will enjoy my music. People that like hearing unusual beats for a change will appreciate because over the time, I’ve noticed my music is everything other than mainstream and kind of drifts off the typical “club bangers” you hear in clubs and the radio. But also especially women or female rappers, because we have a lot in common!

NIKKISIIXX: How’s the music scene out there in Germany?
german-flag-germany-map-germany-flag-animationCADDY PACK: Music with German lyrics has been getting more and more popular the last couple of years. Before that songs in German would barely be played or even made at all and mainly just the focus on music in English. What is very popular here is Pop, EDM and House/ Dance type of music. The most popular rappers played on the German radio are Pitbull, Flo Rida and Macklemore and singers like Adele, Beyonce, Madonna, Rihanna, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift are played a lot! The Music scene in the clubs are totally different than what is played on the radio. Depending on the club and the area music varies! For instance in northern Germany they play a lot of RnB and Old school Hip Hop in the clubs but in southern Germany they play real Rap and Trap music.

Screen Shot 2015-12-30 at 1.41.42 PMNIKKISIIXX: According to your Instagram, you’re a cat lover! Lovely Persian! Why did you choose a cat over a dog?
CADDY PACK: Yes my Persian cat Chocolate! He’s 10 years old and I’ve had him ever since he was a baby kitten! I chose a cat over a dog because I was 16 when I decided to get a pet. My mom wouldn’t allow a dog back then… Now that l’m moved out though, I still wouldn’t be able to have a dog because I wouldn’t have the time to take care of him as I work every day from morning to evenings. It would be sad having a dog that basically stays in the house all day… they need to be taken on walks and have enough time outside, run and all those things. So I simply don’t have the time to keep a dog since it requires much more time than having a cat.

Caddy_Pack_Waka_Flocka_Flame_Mello_Charmillz_Yo-front-largeNIKKISIIXX: After the success of your GOOD Mixtape? What is Caddy Pack currently working on?
CADDY PACK: I’ve recently worked on a song with my old guitar teacher Jan Lindqvist. He was recording an Album and asked me to be on one of his songs. His song is called “Here We Go” and its a typical blues song that I’ve added some rap onto. Sounds pretty cool and I’m always happy to try out new things and not just be glued to one music genre. It´ll be available in January 2016!

NIKKISIIXX: Your three goals for 2016:
CADDY PACK: 1. Release A New Mixtape 2. Perform in California 3. Meet great people/ Have New Opportunities

NIKKISIIXX: What would you say from your experience being a female rapper to help motivate other upcoming female rappers?
CADDY PACK: Never give up or let other people influence you in a bad way. I have had people try to tell me who to work with and what songs to preform or what songs to make. Always stick to what you truly want because that way you’ll be able to give 100% to everything you do! Be confident and authentic! Set a goal and keep it in mind, that always helps motivate! You don’t have to reduce yourself to sex or a sexy image, Missy Elliott is one of my biggest influences and she is really the best example of a hard working female rapper that made it with talent, creativity, and her overall very individual music and videos.

NIKKISIIXX: I’m really into the comic/geek world. Say if you had a super power and became a super hero. What would be your super power and what would be your super hero name? And would you be a Marvel or DC Comics Character?
marvel-logoCADDY PACK: Interesting question I’ve never been asked before! Of course I’d like to have as many powers as possible and its hard to choose! but if I had one super power it would be the ability to control the elements fire, water, air, earth. Something like Storm from X-Men would be cool! So in that case definitely a Marvel character overall I’m more of a Marvel fan! Its hard for me to think of a good name but maybe “Raven Snow” would be cool!

NIKKISIIXX: LAST WORDS
CADDY PACK: I really had fun with this interview and thank you for your time and interest! Thanks so much and have a great start in 2016! Stay tuned for new music and projects by following the links below.

This concludes my interview with Caddy Pack! Don’t hesitate and check out her music, and be in store for new music for the new year. Don’t forget to follow Caddy Pack on all social media outlets.
