Raving At Labour Of Love 2006 At The Guvernment Nightclub In Toronto
Attending one of the best annual raves in Toronto, Labour of Love does it up large every year with famous DJ's like Armin van Buuren, Benny Benassi, Ferry Corsten and Andy C.
Labour of Love is an annual event at the Guvernment and Koolhaus nightclub complex in downtown Toronto.
It is the biggest event of the year. Lots of DJ's from all over the world are playing the craziest tracks till the early morning.
My friends and I decided to check out the jam and ended up completely destroyed. Notable DJ's this year: Benny Benassi, Andy C, Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, Junkie XL, John Digweed.
Prior to the commercialization of the rave scene, where large legal venues became the norm for these events, the location of the rave was kept secret until the night of the event, usually being communicated through mobile messaging, secret flyers, and websites.
This level of secrecy was necessary for avoiding any interference by the police, on account of the illicit drug use, enabled the ravers a location they can stay for 10 hours at a time, and it also promoted the sense of deviance and removal from social control.
Raving in itself is a syllabus free dance, whereby the movements are not predefined and the dance is performed randomly, harmonised with beats from music.
