When thousands of people are packed into one venue, you’re probably going to run into a few interesting characters. If you’d like to know a little bit more about the people you’re dancing next to at a festival, here’s a little crash course on a few types of people you’re likely to meet at a rave.

I’ve been to my fair share of festivals and though there are many more than seven different types of people, these are the seven who stand out in my mind. You have to admit, you probably won’t go to a rave or festival without running into at least one or two of them. And if you don’t run into any, you’re probably at the wrong event.
