    We in the US are facing the same bullshit. They are going to cripple the Rave/Club scene in the name of the drug war...

    And like the (UK) Crimianl Justice Bill (To shut down Raves and Dance Music Events), you know they'll apply it as widely as possible, like including DJ sets as Live music performances.

    Watch yo' Self, cos they are!

    Also, (too obvious to mention,) any Techno / DnB act / DJs who use Drum Machines / Samplers / Keyboards/ Programmed stuff of any kind, (quite a lot of experimental people outside mainstream DnB DJs can be classed as live acts).

    But if they'll close 'IT' down, they'll just make the underground stronger, they can't shut it down.

    The Illegal 'Squat' Parties are alive and well in London, and are my true inspiration...

    They are mainly Techno, but a lot of ruffneck DnB droppin also.

    bigups stu, thanks for that. it's not just live music, you'll have to have a license to play any kinda music (even pre-recorded) to an audience (even yo mates round your house). so if they want to fuck you they can with no reason. happy days...

    the most unfair aspect of this new legislation is the fact that its the smaller promoters and performers who will end up suffering the most because of it. i think that those organizers who promote the larger events will inevitably find ways round the new laws, wheras smaller, local promoters will find that the cost of setting up nights becomes too high to make it worthwhile.
