Friday night JP headliner is the dream, but I think he'd be too expensive.

I think a dance headliner in there would work.

Oooosh, now you're talking, Fuzz. Not a bad way to start the evening's festivities. 

I think he'd be for up it as long as he got a prominent spot and could combine the weekend with some other one-off shows. He sells out large venues in minutes, plays high up (if not headlines) at most dance festivals, has a ridiculous back catalogue of tunes (most of em unreleased) yet he's probably deemed not on par with the likes of Deadmau5 or Major Lazer to headline the Other. The EPiC setup would be too big for a festival but the Holo show would light up that Other like never before. Would make the Chemical Brothers look like a local disco. 

And to think he played in 09 in the Dance Village at about 9pm. Pretty much went unnoticed.

Saturday night I think. I was going to watch Springsteen & stayed there.

  • 16bit dropping Pixies - Where is My Mind at Motion, 2011. Completely unexpected and the rest of the music that night was, quite frankly, horrible in retrospect, but them dropping that was just incredible. Will remember that for years to come. 
  • Numbers 10 birthday in Glasgow 2013. Jackmaster playing West End Girls and the place erupting. Hudson Mohawke playing a never to be released happy hardcore remix of TNGHT - Higher Ground, biblical. I loved the night because Glasgow felt like a million miles from Bristol, and was a proper good time.
  • Walking into this clearing at Bestival as someone (no idea who) dropped Lovebirds - Want You in My Soul. I was absolutely peak euphoria, the smoke machine was playing perfectly with the lights, and I'd found myself a festival romance to have an adventure with (that night was the first time she ever dabbled in any party favours so it felt like some mad and incredible film).
  • Accidentally going into the wrong tent as LNTG played his remix of Fleetwood Mac - Dreams and every single person belting it out. Safe to say the wrong tent became the right tent. Must have been about 10,000 people in there. The same Bestival as the Lovebirds moment. 
  • Glasto 2017. The Stranger Things set DJ Yoda played. The Cure, The Smiths, The Clash - Incredible! 
  • Jamie xx @ WHP 2017. He played some sort of remix (or reprise, or part of the original...?!) of Justin Timberlake - My Love and everything just came together.

I've heard this moment mentioned in countless places and from countless friends over the months, can only imagine how spectacular it must have been! 

You know it's special if a tune can make you forget its 6am and you're (possibly) flagging a bit.

A few of my top Clubbing moments ever....

2003 - Being 19 years old, still pretty new to serious clubbing and seeing Eddie Halliwell at the Republic in Sheffield. It blew me away. I'd never really experienced anything like it.

2005 - Space Ibiza - Erick Morillo. It was live on Radio one. 

My first trip to Gashouder in Amsterdam

Space Ibiza 2006 - Carl Cox playing this.....

Printworks just announced their first shows of the 2020 Spring/Summer season. Most exciting for me is Orbital (Live) + TBA guests. It's on the 14th of March, 12:00-23:00.

 

But one thing I find odd is the price: "from £22.50". Aren't Orbital shows usually more expensive than that? Seems too cheap and it's making worried theres some kind of catch

Well I'd assume that those £22 tickets are pretty limited. Unless you're quick you're most likely to pay one of the tiers as they sell usually 22/28/35/40 off the top of my head.

I don't know what Orbital usually costs, but the set wouldn't be more than 1.5h potentially just 1.

It'll be a full day of lineups which is very standard for Printworks. Also not sure what AVA has planned but visuals could be hit or miss.

Also you'd most likely have to get in the venue a few hours before the end, assuming you just want to see Orbital. Can also get pretty rammo at Printworks, especially by the front & middle (depending on their setup). Sound is good everywhere at least.

All the drawbacks I can think of. :)

Oh, I was so convinced about going; was going to be a nice little weekend away with some friends. But now I'm not sure anymore =\

I doubt you'll get the full Orbital AV show as the stage is to small at Printworks. Daniel Avery and Jon Hopkins did 2 hour sets there recently so I don't see why they wouldn't get their usual 2 hours.

Re the venue, the room is really long and narrow and sounds the best in the middle section IMO, so you may have to stand way back if it's rammo. They have funny rules about getting in before x time before they close the doors, which is kind of annoying.

Be careful what ticket you buy, some have times on them that you have to be in before (on top of a general doors close time). When I went to see Jon Hopkins I accidentally bought a ticket that said I had to be in before 9pm when general doors closed at 10.30pm.

I was just giving you all the drawbacks, if you manage to get the early bird tickets for £22 you'll have a grand old time. 

Main thing is you won't know the lineup so if you're only keen for Orbital may have to listen to some other sets you're not into, but curation should be good on their end. This is last year https://www.residentadvisor.net/events/1190468

Also regarding timings depending on what you're into, this year it's on Saturday looks like a day thing so 12:00 - 23:00, some enjoy that, if not could get to Fabric/Phonox/XOYO or some other venue for a few more hours. Saturday will have a night tube running (limited service on selected lines). 

If you've never been, go for it! Buying tickets at 22 guarantee you should be able to sell them off worst case. 

Wasn't trying to put you off, just my experience (and you did ask what the drawbacks were). Bicep at Printworks may have been the best show I've ever been to.

I've got Chase & Status at The Drumsheds tomorrow. Anyone been there before? It's owned by the same people as Printworks so I'm guessing it's a similar vibe?
