Why You Need to Attend a Pittsburgh Rave
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is not only deemed one of the nicest cities to visit in America – but we also have a pretty epic rave scene thanks to the dedication of local event coordinators and hosts, DJ’s, and producers.
After 10 years of perfecting the art of coordinating rave events and bringing some of the hottest names to the local scene, 1337, Pittsburgh’s biggest rave event host never fails to throw a show that leaves attendees in awe.
Once experiencing raves in Toronto in the early 2000’s, Justin Doverspike, the founder of 1337 said he was inspired by their rave scene and he wanted to bring that same epicness to his hometown of Pittsburgh.
“I’ve been to events up there that just put so much time and effort into decoration and lighting. We really try to bring that atmosphere to our events,” Doverspike said.
Their latest event was a New Years Eve rave. With almost 1,000 people at the event appropriately named Era, complete with three separate stages, one of which was a silent disco, a huge array of different EDM genre DJs, and even a fire pit on the outside patio, it’s no doubt 1337 doesn’t leave much to be desired.
1337’s main goal is to bring the best shows to ravers for the lowest possible price, often times breaking even on the event and taking polls to make sure ravers are getting the experience they want.
“We want to treat people the same way we would want to be treated if we were attending an event.”
Although 1337 books big names producers like Bassnecter, Andy C, Rusko, and so many more, they really try to focus on booking new and upcoming talent – which keeps the DJ sets original to the Pittsburgh area.
If you haven’t had the pleasure of attending a 1337 rave, you can rest assured there will be more to come in 2017.
Every year 1337 hosts “Wheres My Money,” a rave specifically dedicated to bringing ravers the best show possible for the cost.
If you’re still not convinced, you can rest assured knowing our PLUR is unmatched. Due to the tight knit community in Pittsburgh, you’re guaranteed to experience good vibes and a welcoming environment since we treat everyone like family.
If you want to get the best value for your money while still having the time of your life, make sure to hit up a Pittsburgh rave hosted by 1337.
