In its original 1960s incarnation the word "raver" was a synonym for the American slang term “party animal” - a gregarious fun-loving individual. In its second incarnation (from the 1980s onwards) the word has come to mean anyone who attends extended night-time music events known as “raves”. In the post-1980s meaning, the essence of the word relates primarily to the type of events the person attends rather than to the personality of the individual.
