Mosh pits at ‘raves’??


TRIBE Member
it has been a long time since I’ve been on here, and I’m sorry if this has already been posted... but..
I was talking to my little cousin, and telling him about my experiences in the 90’s /early 2000’s scene, as he is into some of the newer electronic flavours.
he went on to ask me what the mosh pits were like at the races back then...
I was thrown for a loop!!!
He explained to me that all the ‘raves’ he’s been to, the “mosh pit etiquette “ is ‘really friendly! Lmao!!

anyways.. the rest off the conversation is irrelevant, I suppose.

my question is this.. in a scene that (to me) should be all about dancing... is there actually mosh pits at parties now?

There weren't really 'mosh pits', in the punk sense at raves back in the day, but there was some crowd surfing.

There was always a lot of crowd compression around the front by the DJs which might have given a mosh pit feeling, i guess.

In my days of parties in the 90’s and 2000’s, I couldn’t have ever imagined a ‘mosh pit’ taking place!
It was all about dancing!
I am very happy that I’m too old for today’s scene! Lol!
