I am Nicole Petriw, some may know me as Nicole Elizabeth and others may call me Raver Barbie. I’ve been raving for about 7 years now and it’s pretty obvious I’ve fallen in love with the music… Going to shows and festivals was nothing new to me; my first real concert was an Aerosmith concert at age 4. As quite literally 1 of my earliest vivid memories in life, you could say the lights, performance, and music had a lasting effect on me. From when I was little when I couldn’t wait for the summer and the Warped Tour, to not being able to wait for the yearly debauchery and celebration of life at EDC Las Vegas, not much has changed besides the music genres. 18 years later, I’ve graduated with a B.S. in management/marketing, planning to get my Masters in Journalism, and now I am more sure than ever I’ll be working in the music industry for the rest of my life.
