Best Rave Music Artists

This rave music artists list ranks the best rave DJs and groups by votes. This list of good rave bands and artists let’s you see who ravers think are the best best in rave music. Rave music is exactly what you'd expect it to be: music played at raves. Beyond the obvious definition, rave music refers generally to the late 1980s and early 1990s implementation of house, techno, and acid house played at clubs and dance parties. This was one of the first booms of electronic dance music which started in Europe and expanded to North America shortly thereafter. Rave music is generally considered happy and synthesizer-heavy. It's sound would later develop into drum and bass and jazzstep among other genres.

So, what is considered the best rave music? When you think of rave music, names like The Prodigy, Die Antwoord, Fatboy Slim, Liquid, Orbital, and Portishead. These groups represent the best that rave music has to offer and with good reason. These dance music artists are closely associated with rave music and are thus considered top pioneers in the expansion of electronic dance music.

That said, it's up to you consider who are the best rave music artists. If you know rave music and notice that someone is missing, feel free to add them. This list answers the questions "who are the best rave music bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest rave DJ ever? If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's songs instead of just voting for the most popular rave music bands that you might've heard of.
