dunno how old this one guy in the bay area scene is, but he must be pushin late 50's early 60's. He's been at a ton of parties I've been to and everyone seems to know him. I figure if he can be into it (dances the whole night away, exed out of his mind, he'll be dead in 10 years max) then there's no reason other people his age can't be.

I've been on holiday across Europe and danced my a$$ off next to hundreds of people over 50. It's amazing.

If you are into it for the right reasons (i.e. it makes you FEEL good and makes you wanna dance and move) then you can listen to it all you’re life. But if you listen cuz its trendy or its always playing at parties or whatever, then your age can determine how long you want to hear trance.

Old people aren't allowed to listen to young people music, and young people aren't allowed to listen to young people music, that's the way it is, it's the rule

just think .. if trance will be old people music, just how electronic sounding will future music be.. perhaps the new kind of music will be in binary, where people are singing stuff like "011010010001010101010" .. then again, maybe country & western will make a comeback and be the next big thing again, cuz almost anything you can do has already been done!! (although that was said by many before trance & dance, so I'm sure there's something new to come).

I know of this couple that would attend parties here in Hawaii. Around 50 or so I guess. They would dress up and everything! Not candy though, just weird costumes...

I for one will hopefully be listening to this music for the rest of my life. Maybe my love for it will die down as time passes by, but whats to stop me from listening to it? My mom still listens to her 50's and 60's music. Of course I won't be able to dance like I do now, but who knows, maybe I'll invent the next dance move that relates to an old man using his walker/cane

I think thast anybody can listen to the music that they are comfortable with, and it doesnt matter about age. If you feel young you are!!

Anyone who likes to get lost in trance can listen to it. If they are happy listening to trance, then by all means, listen to it. =) I've seen many age groups out there that listen to trance. The oldest I've seen is a 67 year old who sits in a scene and has a grand ole' time watching others dance as he bounced his head to the music. I never came across asking why he likes it so much, because I know that one of the inevitable answers that I will get would be in a rhetoric form. "Why do YOU like it so much?" =P
