How to Throw a Rave

Matt Newberg's recipe for


Twilio NumberRA ListingPartifulThemeLocationMusic


Curate a few selectors (DJs) and develop a theme for the event. Set up a unique Twilio phone number as a hotline with a voice response that can reply to SMS texts with an RSVP link to the Partiful page. Cross-promote by creating a post on Resident Advisor. For a location, select a venue with chill neighbors in an accessible location (think: metal shop, banquet hall, etc). Tell all your friends about the party, and get a few to commit to showing up early to get the dance floor going. Add finishing touches: fog machines, balloons, lighting, flowers, and pizza.
