    Personally I'd go to Global Gathering as you'd get a wide range of other styles of music, but if it's just dnb you're after than I guess Sanctuary. But seriously dude, just go Glastonbury, it's the fucking bollocks.

    I went to Gatecrasher,Global,Sanctuary and dance Island this year.

    The best line up for dnb imo was global, but the system was shocking. Sanctuary had the best system in the dnb tent out of all of them but Global was the best overall festival.

    Dance Island in cambridge did well for its first year, raindance hosted the old skool/jungle tent.

    Westfest dont count as a festival imo

    As far as i know sanctuary is the place to be...pretty sure it has the most DnB DJ's and was SIK this year also its only like £40 if you buy in advance....compared to global which is like £100+
