blame the idiots then, i know a guys that paid $150 at the door of MLC for insomnia

anyway the pne has a 4500 person capacity i believe for raves if they could pack say 10,000 the pricing would be significantly cheaper, solid is planning on doing bigger shows next year, more concert-like with bigger capacity

the ticket pricing issue isnt going totally un-addressed
there were actually lots of $70 early bird tickets available to be picked up at dooms, just a lot of ppl never buy their tickets till last minute so promoters and scalpers have the excuse to jack them up, solid doesnt reap in those profits

well, yes, raves in vancouver are waaaay overpriced.
however, solid DID offer a $70 ticket for the NYE rave on Halloween... which i bought, even though i didnt know if i was going or not (i dont usually make plans 2 months ahead!)
and $70 is reasonable for a NYE party in vancouver. especially one that lasts for 10 hours. tickets for parties at clubs in downtown would probably cost $40-$60 anyways.
for all the other raves, especially dooms, we get totally screwed over. tickets are waaay too expensive, but people in vancouver have money and no where to go, which is why people pay $100+ for tickets. they still sell out, though, even though theyre overpriced, so any promoters would jack up the prices if people are still willing to pay for them... just like the tiesto tickets @ plush. crazy. but still sold out FAST.
its kinda sad though. in europe, or asia, or... pretty much anywhere else, the sound system, lighting, line up... EVERYTHING is better, but ppl pay half of what we do.

anyyyways, with all that being said, im still grateful to even have a rave scene in vancouver, coz it sucks living in a place where there isnt! (like in hawaii...)

so hyperfunk is still as phenomenal as he was a few years ago?

i'm taking my buddy to his 3rd rave. he only raved twice back in '01. missed our crews' raving career due to school so we takin him for nye.

and i remember hirshee being decent. but any other suggestions would be good. like what these guys in the 2nd and 3rd room actually spin.

kthxbye

Well lets make this thread constructive -
who would you like to see come to one of the Solid raves?
what price point do you think is fair?
I think -Spike- is right, at $70 earlybird its a good deal for a 12hr party.
As for the rave scene in vancouver, yes it has a character of its own that a lot of people dont vibe with, but thats just what happens to scenes- they change and evolve into new things. The 90s PLUR culture is gone now.
But that being said, it is nice that we actually still have raves here at all.
So let me know what you guys have in mind, im curious

Good to hear everyone had a good time =] I'm a little disappointed that attendance was down, but given the weather there was still a decent amount there!

they were @ gossip tonight with the solid crew!!!
anyway show went over well, shy brothers played a classic trance set... old old OLDschoool.. think birth of scot project melodic hard trance sound.. shit went off
I heard a lot more good feedback about Christopher lawrence's set than expected despite a lot of ppl not knowing who he is in vancity.. really distinct/unique sound, a lot of orignial songs, some psytrance in there too
the old nammer crowd loved shah's live pa set, although i think hes retarded for playing such a proggy track during the countdown that pretty much put ppl to sleep imo... dudes kinda weird LOL
showtek tore the roof off.. played SOOO HARD.. im suprised ppl lasted through their set till 630am... some ppl were just fuckin hcore givn'r! total class acts too stayed around to sign lots of autographs and take lots of pics, really nice guys

didnt get a chance to catch hyperfunk but heard good things
