    Me and some other people are starting up a group and we are going to put events on in the south east.

    We can't think of a name....any ideas?

    Please let me know your ideas which we could use.

    cheers

    Well the other people I am doing this with are going down the 'dark' route with some name ideas, but we just want something really good as a name.

    well

    Fusion,Digital and Prototype are already used as artist or label names.

    I always sorta think "it's your band surely you should come up with the name"... :whipem:

    well how about i give you some names that you cant use first

    Repercussion
    Alchemy
    Breakneck
    Phaze 2
    Vurt
    errrrrm..........

    anyway man, as long as its not a stooopid name, it dosnt really matter, cos the name becomes associated with the event, music policy etc etc after the first few events

    my advice would be to keep it kinda neutral, so not too focussed on anyone thing imparticular if u know what i mean

    Fusion was actually the name of 1 of the biggest raves in the country throughout the early-mid 90's.
    So you may get some negative feedback from any veteran ravers on that one

    Apart from that i think alot of names for events sound way to serious, so perhaps try something the complete opposite ! ??

    too long / hard to remember

    it's gotta be something that sticks in the mind... something simple with not too many syllables

    i reckon 2 or 3 syllables at the most

    final destination ?

    that kinda has a ring to it and uses your dj name.

    You could have a slogan like ... "you know where your final destination is this friday...."

    Well the other people like Maximum Velocity....It has been the only one that well all agree on. So we can start sorting things out for our first event, which is planned for June sometime.
