This is an Alcohol and Drug Free event.
"What! A new years eve without alcohol?" Before you cry "foul!", think about the intense scrutiny our culture has gone through in the past four months. We can use this opportunity to positively effect the public image of raves by gathering peacefully in mass like always and dancing the night away. Let's show the world once and for all...It's About the Music!'s a Tradition!
