    Not sure you know what your talking about?
    It wasnt a scam, it was a mistake/accident - these things happen.
    What promoter in their right mind would want to evacuate a club!

    Its understandable you were pissed off with the turnout, most peeps in the club were, but theres no need to start a conspiracy....

    I bet when a dj doesnt turn up you think the promoters cancelled them to save money and not that they may be lost or given wrong directions for the venue!!

    Dont mean to rant but you needed telling.

    What the fuck!

    Constructive critism always gratefully received...

    I didn't see or hear any disappointed faces or complaints inside the venue.

    So much for claiming your support for the up and coming local Djs

    First of all - i unfortunatley didnt make it to this one an cant comment on the mistake/accident, but almost every Breakneck ive been to - arriving promptly to check SDM & Triple M, we have been kept waiting outside the front so it aint a one-off thing.

    The event is billed as 9 til 2, an when peeps make the effort to be there early (regardless whether there is 2 people of 200 queueing), its fustrating being kept waiting.

    There is a million-an-one things that could go wrong with a rinsin’ event, and pretty much everything has been taken into account making Breakneck an almost flawless night imo.

    Ive always had wicked nights regardless - but if before Ive even got in, Ive had to stand in a queue for ages, my energy supply an high spirits have diminished a little!

    Still - that said, I definitley couldnt do better, even if I had an army of mo-fos to help, Breakneck Rules!!

    Ok.

    On Friday at 9pm as we were just about to open, as we were switching everything on, there was a fault with a smoke machine which poured out heavy clouds of smoke, triggering a smoke alarm, causing the entire building to be evacuated, and the fire brigade to be called.

    (Great scam! Ruining our own first hour and M-Code's set!).

    We always try to open as close to 9pm as poss, but there are often delays, usually caused by last minute security checks, etc.

    We do not deliberately hold up or delay the queue for any reason.

    As I've said, constructive critism is always gratefully received...

    The week before (jarred-hard trance night) the fire alarm went off half way through the night and everybody had to get out for at least half an hour!!!! These things cannot be helped, and why would anyone want it to happen anyway, as it just ruins things for all involved.
    Personally all things consider I still think it was a wicked night- Bryan gee rinsing heavy dubplate after dubplate, ed rush... is ed rush.

    Not as rammed as normal, but then if a line up and legendary production like that doesnt pack a venue out then how the f**k can you expect to do more regular nights with up and coming dj's. Lets be serious can we please! Not just live in dream world!

    Sorry man, but i reckon your slating was totally outa place as im sure most peeps on here would agree.

    You should always check that out in advance. :weirdo:

    Heh.... if it was a club or warehouse you wouldn't have to worry about those things. What sort of venue was it anyway?

    I once set up my lights at a classmates parents house. The place had some sort of ADT style security/fire alarm system which would call the police by itself if there was a break in or fire. So we had to physicaly remove all of the smoke detectors from the walls so they wouldn't go off from my fog machine.

    I'll second that.




    I wasnt there so I dont know all the ins and outs of it, but from what Ive heard, I dont see why they would want to 'scam' everyone in that way? How would they have benefited from it in any way possible?

    That BreakNeck wasn't all that bad - although did arrive later than planned - what I saw was still quality. :nurr_nur:

    Big shouts out to SMD & Tripple M for jumping onto the last set of the night. Lovin some of them tunes.

    Something sounded bit dodgy with the sound system later on tho. Heard some 'Bang' go off at bout 1.00. Sounded like gun shot :sniper: ...... or a speaker stack fallin over!

    So your saying it was an established night club which probably has the smoke machine going all the time anyway. It probably was more involved then that, I doubt a smoke machine in a real nightclub would set a fire alarm off.... I'll guess someone pulled the fire alarm thinking the building was on fire. o_O

    I don't know, I wasn't there. But whatever the cause I'm sorry to hear that it happened.

    i didnt go to breakneck as i have become a bit demoralised with it all,
    i feel scammed (not by the promoters but by the djs) when the residents play far better sets than supposedly elite djs (not because the residents are good but because the 'big names' should really in theory be better) and i end up spending about the same amount of money as when i go out in london but for only half the raving time...another thing (n again this isnt the fault of the promoters) but the crowd just aint what it was :|...finally im all for a no mc policy, but if it is that then it shud b that and not just mediocre mcs on the mic...im sure they used to just be in the background which was fine, but when i last went they seemed to be taking over
    sorry for the rant coz i have had some good nights at breakneck...but these are the reasons that we dont go down no more

    but on the up side the production has always been high class and sdm n triple m always rinse it :)
