    Better than not going at all - I've met a few people who have been at raves alone and now they're mates. Worst case scenario is you get a bit bored, might as well go for it if you like the music :icon13:

    Only done it a couple of times, but it has been sweet. You can do what you want, when you want. Plus you get to meet people outside for a cig, and randoms on the dancefloor. Do it.

    my favorite events have all been when I've gone alone. it definitely helps you up your socializing game, and the best part is that you always meet/become friends with people that like that same music. win win

    I started going out clubbing by myself when I was at university. Still do the same today 20 years on and would have missed out on many great nights and meeting some good people if I hadn't.

    see I've been split from my group at a few events and it was sound on my own but its the initial first hour alone, i don't normally start meeting people until all their shit has kicked in and everyone gives no fucks and from then on its great but might be awkward at the start

    Did it once after flaky mates couldn't be arsed going to something I wanted to. Ended up not bothering to invite people after that because it was long and I usually bumped into people anyway.

    About to pull the trigger on a 3 day dub festival, going solo.

    Turn up a bit later so you're not awkwardly milling about as it's warming up then.

    I have literally zero interest in talking to other pie eye spengaloids, I rarely ever meet/talk to other people when I'm out on my own. It's a relief not to be bothered talking to other people. Girls included. I've got that married daddy vibe going so I get approached waaay more than I ever used to, which is a shame because I couldn't give a shit. Nice for the ego, but it's hard to get them to fuck off when I just want to groove in the corner

  30. I don't actively try to talk to strangers but sometimes it happens; Last time I got chatting to some dude and he offered me out for a joint then gave me some crap beak. #thatsinterestingsheriff
