This was the 5th year The Rave Cave crew attended Westfest at The Royal Bath West and Showground, in Somerset, for Halloween's most legendary rave in the South West. The frosty wind definitely gave everyone a chill but didn't stop the ravers from heading out in their masses with some legendary costumes, to dance the night away to some amazing tunes. Read more about how Westfest returns with another sensational rave in this blog.
Amazing rave lights & a tasty lineup
To treat this year's ravers the lineup included a host of electronic music acts ranging from Subfocus, Darren Styles, SASASAS, Majistrate, Congo Natty, Kutski and Cally. The event runs from 6pm - 6am, but with the clocks turning back, and the event starting slightly later than expected, meant that everyone had slightly less time to skank out. Ravers came from far and wide to see some legendary DJs performing, one group we met even coming from as far as the U.S. for the rave.
Sensational Halloween Costumes
As always, the costumes were on point this year. Between the classic raver looks, 90's outfits, balaclavas, eye lenses and a range of outfits from Steampunk to escaped convicts. Some people really go all out with their costumes at Westfest. The theme for this year was clowns, but only a few clown outfits were spotted. A vibrant mix of facepaints and glitter covered the lady's faces, and for the more concealed raver, our Outline LED Sound Reactive Masks went down a treat!
