The beauty of a rave is it knows no bounds. A nightclub? Built for a rave. A desert? Nothing stops a rave out there. An abandoned prison? Why not? However, no one expected Chernobyl of all places to hold a rave. Well, this is 2018, and this weird year ain’t over yet.
Turns out a rave can really go anywhere, as Chernobyl hosted its first-ever rave, called ARTEFACT. OK, ARTEFACT isn’t officially a rave per-say. The website calls it a “contemporary art and media object” to spread awareness of Chernobyl’s struggles. For those who don’t know, the world’s worst nuclear accident occurred at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in 1986. It ruined the neighboring Ukrainian town Pripyat, and resulted in the direct deaths of 31 people.
