My mates live across the road from Oval Space and really like it as a venue, I’ve never been myself but I’ve only heard good things. 

Nice one cheers mate sounds good, had a few dodgy nights in london that have been way too packed and not my sort of crowds so very excited for this one!

also while i'm here anyone got any good glasto alternatives for this year? Last year was fantastic and i'm still yet to fill that gap

Really enjoyed secret garden party  and lost village this year and i've been eyeing up a few like Farr festival, gottwood which so far has some lovely line up announcements. Also only just found out about noisily which looks like quite nice vibes but a bit too much psytrance for me haha.

 

Oh and Houghton festival, gutted i gave that one a miss this year but finances restricted me...

Is there much old skool at Glastonbury? Acid house, rave, piano classic type stuff.

yep, plenty. you'll often find some of the names of that classic late 80s/90s era playing at Glastonbury too.

some acts that have played in the last few years: 808 State, Phuture, Kevin Saunderson, A Guy Called Gerald, Masters At Work, Felix Dickinson, Roger Sanchez, DJ Pierre and probably loads more i've forgotten.

they guy(s) who do lots of the booking for Oval Space and Pickle Factory had been up in Leeds for many years and know their stuff (can vouch for them personally) so expect many an interesting lineup in the years to come.

Nothing worse than an oversold night is there, I hate it when you spend half your night either getting bumped around or having to let people through the crowd. 

yeah its the worst, especially if you've paid a fair chunk of money to be there. Feels like you're being ripped off and the promoters are raking it in. I think its the price we have paid for everything becoming about who is on the lineup rather than to which club you're going to.

DJs and their agents obviously don't help with their at times insane fee demands. the scene is only going more commercial and its getting tiresome. Seek out your local smaller niche parties and you'll have a better night most of the time. Thankfully we still have cosmic slop and love muscle in leeds that are run for the right reasons by excellent people who care.

On the other hand i think I sometimes enjoy festivals that bit more as you can usually find yourself a bit more space to dance than in a club.

any of you lot been oval space recently I've heard so many mixed reviews but I'm going down on 22nd for Fengler and Vrilski and thought you guys might have a few comments on it? This year I haven't really gone anywhere apart from my local dingy sweaty basement that is  The Brickworks in Nottingham. Fantastic venue though, especially when the Wigflex events are on and they get the likes of Overmono, Call Super, Helena Hauff and Objekt.

Yeah go quite a lot, it's alright as a club venue (sound is fine), but if you can get to the Pickle Factory over the road, do so. Often they open both for big nights. Oval Space is a pretty cool venue itself, and attracts a half decent crowd. Prefer PF though.

that is a beauty. I want to go! any tips of where is best to stay from those that have been before?

You can camp onsite, or use one of the pre-erected jobs I think. We stayed at a place called the Westcord Fashion hotel which ended up being 'relatively' cheap, you can cycle into the site if you want to as well, just worth considering that the festival site is in the middle of nowhere and can end up costing a lot in cab fares. I would absolutely recommend the festival to anyone though, great site, great vibe and great crowds. 

I'm liking the look of Farr as a fairly cheap local festival this year, I have a friends stag do the weekend after Dekmantel this year so no chance I will be able to go sadly.

2 years ago we stayed in Amsterdam Zuid, halfway between the city centre, and the festival site. the shuttle buses go from beside Zuid train/metro station, so it worked out pretty good.

last year we stayed in one of the airport hotels about 5mins walk from the festival site, Tulip Inn Amsterdam Airport. very handy for the festival, although there's basically nothing around the area except a few hotels. if you wanted to head into the city after the festival you could get the shuttles. getting back at night was a bit of an issue, but the metro goes to the airport regularly, and there's a free shuttle bus from the airport to the hotels along that road (takes about 15mins), or a taxi from the airport to the hotel was about €20.

Barcelona for the week of Sonar and Dekmantel for me :)

Hope all are well 

I’m still toying with the idea of doing Sonar, some mates got their tickets and stuff sorted today and have said there’s a sofa bed in the apartment for me should I need it. The wise move would be to not go, but wise isn’t always the most fun.
