Toronto has a long and rich history of incredible Hardcore raving, but this past year ranks right up there near the top.

Nocturnal Commissions stormed ever onward, bringing you Hardcore heroes like Gammer, Skywalker, Recon, Technikore, and Slipmatt. Between the two, 2011 proved to be one of the best years for Hardcore raving Toronto has ever seen.

Well, get ready ravers, because it’s not over yet!

Both Nocturnal Commissions and Daydream are rightly proud to be a part of our rave community. We are also proud to be a part of the larger community that we call home – our city, Toronto. And we believe very strongly in the ideals that hold both communities together. That’s why we’re giving back to our city and those who need it most with a full-fledged food drive, and like all our events, we need your help to make it a success. And so, we’re asking each of you to please bring a canned or non-perishable food item with you to donate to the Toronto food bank. It’ll make you feel good, it’ll make somebody’s holiday a little brighter – and to say thanks, we’ll knock a few dollars off the price of your admission!

Nocturnal Commissions and Daydream Productions are both widely regarded around the world for providing a complete rave experience, as you well know. That means you can expect all the trimmings of a proper rave, including:

- TRIP and Happy Rave booths!

- World-class décor from our own Dream Builders and Daydream Builders!


- Fresh fruit and candy giveaways to keep your energy up!

- Free CDs from some of the world’s top hardcore artists!

- The time-honoured Kandie Kontest, with fun prizes for the most ridiculously kandied out ravers!

- And most of all, that hard-to-the-core, double-intense, united-as-one, ultra-happy vibe that YOU bring with you to each and every Nocturnal Commissions and Daydream Productions event!
