The magic. The mystery. The music. There's nothing quite like raving. Every time you walk in the door, you're transported to a timeless land of peace, love, unity and respect; a place where the beat never stops and the wonders never cease; home away from home. You know how amazing it feels.

So do we.

We remember our first glimpse into the magical world that is raving. We remember the bracelets, the smiles, the hugs, the lasers, the music. And even though we've grown older, so long as we have raving in our lives, we never have to grow up.

On May 9th, join Nocturnal Commissions as we celebrate the wonder and magic of all things rave. Get out your brightest bracelets and your fun fur pants; bring along your old half-filled PLUR book; buy a new Vicks inhaler and a pair of glowsticks.

We are bright.

We are happy.

We are loving.

We are Toronto's Happy Hardcore ravers, and we are...
