  Rave party - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Raves began to expand into a global phenomenon around 1989-1992, mostly on a grassroots basis: people who had travelled to attend the first raves in each region began setting up promotion companies, often informally, to organize their own parties.
In the early 2000s illegal parties still exist, albeit on smaller scales, and the number of sanctioned events seemed to be on the rise.
Raves and ravers continued to be vilified by government authorities.

 Rave party   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-07-20)
Opponents of rave parties have sought to outlaw them in numerous jurisdictions, citing illegal drug consumption and trafficking, as well as the consumption of alcoholic beverages by minors.
The spread of raves was initially grassroots only; people who had traveled to attend the first raves in each region began setting up promotion companies, often informally, in order to organize their own parties -- mirroring, in rural areas and smaller, less cosmopolitan cities, the relatively urban scene with which they had become enamored.
Rave subculture is lauded by its champions for its openness, welcoming tolerance for individual expression and for some a sense of oneness with similar-thinking ravers to avoid negativity and physical confrontation.

 OLDSKOOL HISTORY: Elitism in the Rave Culture
It is a party, a gathering, a sensory event; the rave scene is one of the newest and increasingly popular music cultures for young adults around the world.
A "rave," in the vernacular, "refers to a party, usually all night long, open to the general public, where loud 'techno' music is. played and many people partake in a number of different chemicals" (Hilker, 1994).
With continued publicity of certain rave subcultures (for example the "candy kids"), the "true" ravers see an influx of kids that have no idea what the scene is. The flashy newcomers have made the scene "trendy," about the drugs and escape from "the real world," rather than the music.
