    Looks like a 250 capacity boat from 8pm -2 am will cost £2120 plus hire of sound system

    so minium will be 15 quid assuming only 200 people turn up..this is centrsal london..not through a mate..though a mate will have to check...and will also look at around Reading area, as then can get a free party set up on same night possibly ....will check into that

    So a boat party won't be cheap especially if your looking to book a top name or 2 ...but it will be PHAT

    Blurr isd right in London there will be sound restrictions..whereas near reading tehre are areas with no houses for miles which boat could cruise up and down.

    Agree that we don't need a big name DJ, but would be nice to have 1 or 2 ..depends on rates last time I checked you could get Ray Keith, Nikki Balck Market, Break, peaople liek that for 400 quid or so....I would have thought somelie liek Spinback form total science would be fuken good, or break, or calibre, but hell what do i know.

    I do know that is a lot of money to put up front, and I know I would not expect anyone to pay up front to someone they didi not trust so we would need to find someone everyone is cofortable with paying some sort of advance feee to , so the deposits are covered... anyway back to work]#

    if its a party for the forum, then forum dj's should play,

    if you wanna open the doors and make some monies then you'll need a name.

    like everyone has said, i'd pay up front, to get this off the ground, but i reckon it would be near impossible to get all the money up front. so we'd need some one with deep pockets who was willing to pay what we can't get up front.

    definately forum deejays only. could make having a set a prize on one of chloe's comps maybe. or have massive b2b sessions all night so we could get all forum regular deejays playing.

    when you say bristol is the home of dnb, you're obviously forgetting about wolverhampton. don't worry though, easy mistake to make

    If Stu would let us use the forum name to promote (I'm sure he would), you could have a mix comp on here and the top 3 winners will get a set to play. Enough places online to promote it, and if it goes well, maybe Stu would be interested in a collab and doing it on the reg, maybe even pick up a few sponsors. Worth a thought.
