    this was the first big rave I'd been to, the dnb arena killed it. such a variety of tunes and had a good vibe in there all night

    devize was good as was friction and nicky b. sly destroyed the speakers nearly. dispointed that hazard didn't show. raveology done well though couldn't knock the sound. was pissed that i had to wait 4 hours for atrain and my mates got a lift at half 4 bastards.

    got dragged up there instead of goin inno, didn't think too much of it, system was alrite tho but friction on at 5am!!! surely not! and i no it was raveology but it was all sdc after andy till like 4am with juiceman bassman and biggie on stage throughout prime time which killed the vibes for me, but nicky b and friction saved the night in the end , good sets from andy and sly too

    They didnt sell enough tickets so the arenas were massively reduced in size. DnB room was tiny compared to previous years and the hardcore main arena was halved in size. Sound system died after Andy C due to sound restrictions.

    So, what bout the 'all new lg arena and rooms'?? Well load of shit to bed honest. The old dnb room was a vast warehouse, now its been built in and things added so its alot more narrow and coz of turnstiles are the bottom, i cant see it gettin much bigger.

    Good night tho but i agree, SDC spoilt the prime time

    Went to this last year, wicked nite only prob was the sound system was too bassy, very hard to make out a lot of tunes. Was planning on hitting it again but decided on detonate instead, sounds like made the rite choice.

    M8 i was speaking to the sound engineer bout turning it back up and he said he cant coz it was being monitored.

    There is sound restrictions in the NEC. If you look on the NEC website under the terms of hire PDF it clearly states this. Theres sound restrictions where ever people intend to 'rest' ie: the hotels around the NEC.

    SDC did kill the vibe, i dont understand why they get booked. Im not a fan.

    And Hazard n Devize swapped sets.

    The 2 big NYE events both flopped anyhow, Pleasuredome pulled a small crowd as well and the promoter lost bout £50k
