When you think of a warehouse party, you’re probably thinking of something that isn’t quite legal. A disused building, a hastily rigged DJ setup and some blinking lights, these types of raves might sound fun on paper, but it definitely doesn’t make good business sense! Yet if your local area has an opening for exactly this type of party, there’s no reason why you can’t be the one to organise it in a 100% legal, fun, and profitable way.
Before you start organising any type of party, you’ll have to come up with a working budget. While there are many venues that you can hire on a minimum spend basis, for larger warehouses, this might not be the case, so you need a budget that breaks down estimates of all the costs that you’re going to incur. Think about everything you are going to need, including DJ fees and security on the night. Remember that you are trying to host a safe, legal rave, so there will be costs involved. Yet if you promote your event to the right crowd of people, they will be happy to pay a ticket price that will not only cover your costs, but provide you with a profit as well.
What type of a party are you trying to host exactly? Is it going to be themed? Having throwback parties to a certain decade are always popular and people love to be able to dress up and party the night away. At the same time, there aren’t that many venues that play modern EDM or trance music, and so this is a market that you might be able to tap into by hosting a modern rave. Deciding on your theme early and sticking to it will help you through all the next decisions. It also means that you’ll be able to start promoting as soon as you have the date and venue set – even before this with a ‘coming soon’ teaser. Knowing what the goals of the event are will help guide you throughout the planning process.
Find the Venue
If you are looking to host an old school style rave, then you’re going to need an old school style venue. Luckily, if you are trying to hire a venue, the range that London has to offer will have you covered. Warehouse and industrial locations are increasingly popular, and the owners of these building have done them up in such a way that they are perfect to hire for a range of different events, raves included. If this is the type of party that you want to throw, then check out one of the warehouses for hire in London and you won’t be left disappointed. Think about the size that you need for the amount of people you are expecting as well as the layout of the venue. Are there any major health and safety concerns? Are there enough amenities for everyone? These are the types of questions that you’ll have to ask yourself when searching for the perfect venue.
Hire a DJ
What’s a rave without a good DJ blasting out the tunes? This is when you really need to do your research and hire someone that not only has a good reputation but is well enough known to draw the crowds as well. Get a contract signed with them as soon as you are able to and make sure that you ask them what they require for the night. Show them around the venue and where they will be set up and don’t be afraid to ask their advice of lights and other aspects of the night. Most DJs will be only too happy to share their opinions on what makes a rave a night to remember.
Insurance and Security
Make sure that your venue, DJ, and you as a business all have the right licences to be able to host a rave like this. Know the capacity of the venue and hire security to check IDs and bags before people enter – as well as keeping an eye on the numbers. Having the correct insurance is crucial. It’s unlikely that you’ll ever need to use it, but going without is illegal and can get your rave shut down before it even starts. Everyone working in the building needs to be fully briefed on health and safety and of course there needs to be a few trained in first aid as well. Making sure that you are hosting a well organised and safe event for both customers and staff should be your first priority.
If you don’t get the word out in time, you’re not going to have a paying crowd. Set up a website to tease interested customers about your upcoming night and encourage them to sign up to your mailing list. Once you have a list, these are the first people you’ll contact when tickets for your event go on sale. Offer these early subscribers a discount and word will soon spread about what you’re trying to do. Having good graphics will also help your marketing to take off. When you have good branding, you immediately gain a certain about of trust and respect from potential customers, and it will show that you mean business and are serious about putting on the best rave of the year.
Gone are the days of dingy dockside raves, but a warehouse venue doesn’t need to be dismissed! It’s easy to bring back that old school feel in a way that’s authentic, yet above board. This is a market that has a lot of potential to it, all you need to do it get planning and soon you’ll have a queue of people outside a warehouse door all looking to be a part of your party.
