A short time ago, raving was an adventure. Whether it was secret warehouse locations, cryptic flyers or ten different people you had to call to find the location, raving was not an activity for the impatient. Now that the culture has gone mainstream, Hot Since 82 is working to bring back the journey that used to accompany underground parties.

Last year, the UK-based artist gathered fans, blindfolded them and had them transported to an unknown location for an all-night event. Now, on May 23, 2015, Hot Since 82 is bringing his Taken event to Los Angeles. He described this event as “rave meets secret cinema.” Watch the trailer below!

“This is one of the most exciting and interesting experiences I’ve had as a DJ! TAKEN is about pushing the boundaries and giving something back to my fans, a bespoke event that’ll be remembered for years to come. It’s also a little nod to the old illegal rave days, where people didn’t know where the party was being held.” - Hot Since 82.

For those who are telling themselves this event doesn't sound so secret, the rave is private and closed off to the public. There will be no tickets, but you can register here.
