bRave 2.0!

 

Scrumpy, Under the Radar, & 95bFM present bRave 2.0, The Mothership - Saturday March 2nd 

95bFM returned to the rave last year after a decade-long hiatus from the days of OONST. To everyone’s delight and no one's surprise it was a raging success, so we thought, lets do it again! 

bRave is fast becoming our favourite annual dance party, where we can celebrate of our diverse community of excellent DJ’s as well the new generation of 95bFM Rave fans! So we have, yet again, curated the sickest line up for one heaven of a night! 
It’s big beats, sweat and hearts filled on the dance floor. It’s a damn good time!  Expect anything from weird hyperpop to deep house, fiery techno to whatever else your little rave heart desires.
