Putting on rave gloves can add some serious fun at rave festivals. As you dance the night away to the beat of the music, you can create some of the most awesome and stunning light shows with your very own hands that will dazzle both you and your friends. The problem with wearing rave gloves these days is that most of them are cheap and low quality and don’t last long, which is why it’s a good idea to invest in a decent pair that will last you for many rave festivals to come. The very best rave gloves come equipped with an in-built spectrum of colours and patterns in addition to their super exotic design, which is an added plus.
Creating your very own lightshows at the rave festival is about building a connection with your audience and expressing yourself through kinetic movement. Glovers have the ability to perform a hand-focused dance by creating streaks and patterns of lights to mesmerize the viewer. In those few moments your hands become an extension of your emotions and the instrument to tell your personal story. The illusion of the art is the mastery of manipulating light and turning darkness into your canvas. Your glove set represents your personality and the modes and colors you choose are just as important as the moves you string together. Great for all ages, gloving combines optical illusion and rhythm allowing the performer to create mind-blowing performances.
Here’s our list of the top 10 most stunning rave gloves designs that are fun to wear and are of outstanding quality – you definitely won’t want to miss out on these at the rave!

Furthermore, their furry-poofy design (whatever you call it) looks pretty amazing and unique too. You’ll definitely be complimented at the rave festival just by wearing these on the dance floor.
The only issue we hand with these gloves is that the fur (or pom poms) that are on the tip of the fingers come off after a night of raving. This means that you may lose pieces of yarn after each rave due to shedding. But if you are looking just to get a pair of unique gloves for a once in a lifetime use, these fluffy finger rave gloves would be unlike anything you have used before.

The batteries seem to last forever as long as you are not in color set mode too long, as they seem to drain power quicker when changing colours. The way that the gloves are set up, you use 1616 or 1620 batteries – although the 1620s’ last longer. If you need batteries, these 1620 batteries can be obtained from EmazingLights.
