Toronto is home to many talented DJs, many fine promoters, and many excellent producers. But the one thing that truly sets Toronto's rave community apart as one of the world's best is YOU - the enthusiastic, passionate, PLURry, and downright amazing ravers who come together each event to build something special. We at NC and Embedded recognize how lucky we are to have such an incredible group of people around us, and that's why every year, we give you an event to truly call your own, putting YOU in charge of the music just like YOU are always in charge of the vibe.
Ravers... it's that time again!
On Saturday, November 8th, Nocturnal Commissions joins forces once again with Embedded Entertainment and YOU to put on the world's only fully-interactive rave experience - TOTAL REQUEST RAVE!!
