Palace of versailles

The Palace of Versailles is organizing a rave in its Hall of Mirrors

We’ve found the next exotic rave spot you’ll want to hit up this summer. Occurred on June 8 of this year, the Castle of Versailles will host a rave open to the public. Can you guess where exactly in the palace the party will take place? It’s true: the famous Hall of Mirrors was the place chosen for the music.

(Also, sorry to anyone hoping to finally get a chance to party in the massive fountains surrounding the palace.)

As you may know, the palace is home to dozens of ancient rooms, filled with beautiful works of art and furnishings. The palace is currently open to the public for tours, but it’s safe to say this will be the first time in history that it’s hosted a rave. Obviously, this is not the first time that the establishment has seen a party given that its former owner, Louis XVI, was fond of elegant evenings in his time.

“This timeless evening is part of the Versailles tradition of the first festivals of the time of the Sun King and also echoes Versailles, the cradle of French electro”

According to planet alone, the Palace of Versailles is working with Ed Banger Records to bring rave into the Hall of Mirrors. The event, officially named Versailles electro, will provide attendees with heart-pounding music in a historic setting. From now on, the lineup includes a group of popular French DJs, including Breakbot x Irfane, Myd, and Some. We can only imagine what the lighting and lasers reflecting off the Hall of Mirrors will look like!

When it comes to tickets, you don’t have to be royal to buy some for yourself and your friends. General admission starts between €22 and €30 ($25 to $34). If VIP is more your type, these tickets are €60 (or around $68). The VIP will include private parking, seating, a glass of champagne and a bar reserved for VIPs. If that’s not lavish enough for you, a Gold ticket is available for €160 (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 this unique experience. We just hope no one accidentally bumps into an expensive statue or spills wine on a priceless painting.
