[TIPS] How To Enjoy You’re First Music Dance Festival

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!

Survey: Lines That You Can’t Stand

linesyoucantstand

I asked via my twitter account NikkiSixx an open question that I really wanted to hear my viewers opinion.



Has there been a time when you listen to a song, but you expected more from it? Say a line was just too simple to come up with or they shouldn’t have used it at all. If you’re an artist or songwriter you should check out what the audience is saying. You don’t want to land on lines that make you urk. Lines I can’t stand our I’ll take your girl. Its like no you’re not and why would any guy want to hear you think you can take his girlfriend. Below are a couple of tweets from my followers and LINES THAT YOU CAN’T STAND.


Feel free to comment and let us know which lines you can’t stand, we’ll might add it to this post if it’s not mentioned above. Don’t forget to mention NikkiSiixx to be able to view the tweet.

Lists: 10 Sultry R&B and Soul Slow Jams

satin_sheets

Allow us to take you on a brief time-traveling journey for some of the most sensuous soul jams to ever pump out of the speakers. Those in the know are already well aware of the importance of the right music for making love and these are some of the jams that you should be making sure are in your Spotify playlist next time you’re with someone special. Over half of those who enjoy music while making love agree that the rights sounds make a big difference in setting the mood and the scene for a sensual evening, according to this infographic on the relationship between sex and music. The same study found that 40 percent of those same people found the right music even more arousing than their partner’s touch. Here are ten great tracks that definitely have the right touch.

01. The Isley Brothers – Between the Sheets

The grandaddy of all smooth slow jams. “Between the Sheets” has been sampled so many times it’s probably playing in someone’s bedroom right now. Notably Notorious B.I.G.’s “Big Poppa” sampled the track, and so did Da Brat’s “Funkdafied,” “Nika” by Lil Vicious, Keith Murray’s “Most Beautifullest Thing the World,” Gwen Stefani’s “Luxurious,” and like a hundred other songs. “Between the Sheets” is the truth and you can’t beat the Isley Brothers when it comes to baby-making music.

02. Ready for the World – Love You Down

You can already hear it in your head can’t you? That hook echoing in your brain crooning “let me love you down.” Not only is the beat smoother than silk but Melvin Riley’s vocals practically melt your clothes off. Then, that guitar solo comes in and just blows your mind and now we’re going to take a second and cool off before moving to number three.

03. Sade – No Ordinary Love

Anyone that claims they’re into romantic mood music that isn’t down with Sade doesn’t know what they’re talking about. The opening of this song immediately lets you know what the deal with slow, smoky keys giving way to Sade’s demure vocal line that gets undercut with an epic ’90s guitar riff that makes every time feel like the love scene at the end of an action movie. Game recognizes game with Twin Shadow covering the song on Jimmy Fallon with video of the performance here.

04. Mariah Carey – Always Be My Baby

Mariah may have fallen a bit from her pedestal today, but no one can ever deny the power of Ms. Carey in the ’90s and this was one of her best. Uplifting chords with Mariah’s voice at its best “Always Be My Baby” is a sweet, romantic, and heartbreaking ode to lost love and those who refuse to let go. It works on so many different levels and Carey’s voice is so powerful the song transcends the trappings of time and has become one of the immortal love ballads of our age.

05. Usher – Nice and Slow

They call him U-S-H-E-R R-A-Y-M-O-N-D and “Nice and Slow” is still one of the best songs in the R&B legend’s long repertoire. One of the sexiest singles from 1998’s My Way, the record made Usher a household name and cemented his position as one of the gatekeepers of pop and R&B long before his momentary lapse in judgment led to the signing of Justin Bieber. When it’s seven o’clock on the dot and you’re in the drop top cruising the streets, there’s only one song that will lead you where you want to go.

06. D’Angelo – Untitled (How Does It Feel?)

Truthfully you could easily put just about any D’Angelo song or record on and you’d be ready to roll. Even New York Magazine has applied science to what makes the man’s music so sexy. Soulful guitars combine with a slow-and-steady rhythm section while D’Angelo’s syrupy vocals coat the track like honey for one of the hottest songs that ever hit the charts. But we know all you really remember is the iconic video that also perfectly wraps up everything the song is about into one shot.

07. Frank Ocean – Thinkin’ Bout You

This song, yo. Frank Ocean, the only redeeming figure of the OFWGKTA family (except for Earl, we love you, Earl), he was always just too good to be hanging with a bunch of foul-mouthed chuckleheads spending their time swearing and skating. But 2012’s “Thinkin’ Bout You” from his Channel Orange LP put the soulful singer on a completely different level than his compatriots. Frank was too busy making beautifully crafted love songs with irresistible hooks that made him the perfect R&B star for a new generation.

08. Miguel – Adorn

2012 was a terrific year for slow jams and Miguel’s “Adorn” was one of the best. The dated synthesizers and chords felt more like Lionel Richie than Trey Songz and Miguel ended up falling backwards into a new classic. Miguel is still at the whole bedroom music game with “Coffee,” but he’ll be hard pressed to ever top this one.

09. Ciara – Body Party feat. Future

The ex-Mrs. Future recently dropped her latest record, Jackie, to positive feedback, but it was 2013’s “Body Party” that rebuilt Ciara’s brand and made her a staple of the sexy stereo. Unstoppable producer-du-jour Mike Will Made It flipped the sample from the classic romantic ’90s club jam “My Boo” by the Ghost Town DJs and turned it into a slowed down sexual tour de force bringing that inescapable hook back to life for another summer of love. She may not be with Future anymore but she seems to be doing well after trading up for Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, according to the Washington Post.

10. Jeremih – Planes feat. J. Cole

Jeremih has matured a lot since his “Birthday Sex” days and is currently controlling the airwave since 2015 with this outstanding ode to the mile-high club. By all accounts, airplane sex is decidedly not as fun or practical as birthday sex. You have to deal with cramped spaces, passengers, air marshals, turbulence, and a bunch of other hassles. The act is more fun in theory than in practice. But we suppose if you’re Jeremih and have a private G6 then you could probably make it work and J. Cole has a nice verse and name-drops Akinyele. Complex reports that the track was to originally feature a verse from Chance the Rapper but ultimately went with the North Carolina-bred J. Cole.
