We’ve found the next exotic rave location that you’ll want to attend this summer. Occurring on June 8th of this year, the Palace of Versailles will be hosting a rave open to the public. Can you take a guess where exactly in the palace the party will go down? That’s right: the famous Hall of Mirrors has been the chosen spot for the music.
(also, sorry to all those hoping they’d finally have a chance to party in the massive fountains surrounding the palace.)
As you may know, the palace is home to dozens of antique rooms, filled with beautiful artwork and furniture. The palace is currently open to the public for tours but it’s safe to say that this will be the first time in history it will be hosting a rave. Obviously, it’s not the first time the establishment has seen a party considering its previous owner, Louis XVI, was keen to elegant parties in his time.
“This timeless evening is part of the Versailles tradition of the first festivals of the Sun King’s time and also echoes Versailles, cradle of French electro”
According to Lonely Planet, the Palace of Versailles is working with Ed Banger Records to bring the rave to the Hall of Mirrors. The event, officially named The Versailles Electro, will offer attendees pulsating music in a historic setting. As of now, the lineup includes a group of popular French DJs including Breakbot x Irfane, Myd, and So Me. We can only imagine how the lighting and lasers will look reflecting in the Hall of Mirrors!
As far as tickets go, you don’t have to be a royal to pick up some for you and your friends. General admission starts between €22 to €30 ($25 to $34). If VIP is more your type, these tickets go for €60 (or about $68). VIP will include private parking, seating, a glass of champagne, and a designated VIP bar area. If that’s not lavish enough for you, a Gold ticket is available for €160 (or about $180). The Gold ticket will include even closer reserved parking, its own bar/lounge, a buffet, and two glasses of champagne.
The choice is yours, but you won’t want to miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime experience. We just hope no one accidentally bumps into an expensive statue or spills wine on a priceless painting.
