The event took place at the city's Bramley-Moore Dock venue last night (Friday 30 April), with the second of the two-day trial taking place tonight.
It means 6,000 clubbers will attend the first legal raves since March 2020 across the two nights, starting at 2pm and ending at 11pm.
But one lad had made sure he was getting right back into the spirit, and was spotted in the background of a BBC news report holding on to the barriers.
He then gives his head a wobble and carries on walking, after his momentary lapse in balance.
The pilot events don't require social distancing or face coverings - the only condition is that clubbers need to get a negative Covid test result before they're allowed in.
With promoter Circus at the helm, The First Dance hosted Sven Väth, the Blessed Madonna and Jayda G last night. Tonight Fatboy Slim will headline.
The website reads: "This show is the first club event to NOT be socially distanced since restrictions began. Masks will be optional."
It adds: "You will need to be from the Liverpool City Region in order to qualify for a ticket.
"Please note for clarity there will be no requirement for vaccine passports for this event.
"We will only require LFT Covid tests which are standard for aviation and other industries."
Sam Newson, the event producer, said the pilot was 'vital' after the events industry had been 'decimated' over the last year.
He said: "For the last 12 months, it has been a disaster.
"People have moved on, I've got colleagues who have lost houses, it has been incredibly hard and so to try and get this back up and running is incredibly important."
He added: "I stood on stage early on and I had a little bit of a teary eye, I'm not going to lie, it is very emotional.
"Any event is special but with the amount of work that has gone into this and to be the first in the country in over 12 months, it is very special."
Student Elliott Cause, 20, who attended, told the PA news agency: "I feel like this is a big moment for the UK.
"I feel like uni students have been struggling without this, I feel like this will do a lot.
"You can already see people are so up for it, the energy's great."
While 18-year-old Leah Lawless added: "We are very excited. It's been hard, it's been boring, a bit sad, depressing and not the best."
Although it's a chance for people to let their hair down after a very long few months, it's also being used by scientists to look into Covid transmission.
