    I went to Junction 2 last year, which is great for dad raving. Decent techno, in a park and under the M4 flyover. Last tune at 10pm, home and wrapped up in bed by midnight :D Going again this year. Come!

    my last proper night out, a lifetime ago ( but it's still going strong) , was Horsemeat Disco @ Vauxhall Tavern, lots of big old bears, older non bears, youngsters,fashionistas, randoms, amazing music (Luca Baldelli, founding father of Italo Disco, alongside superb ressies ) - age was deffo not a factor, cldnt recommend it more.

    I’m talking Milton Keynes not the Vegas one.

    Example of a lineup:


    Apart from featuring Avicii (and his Country & Western fusion bullshit) that year was awesome.

    Enviro Make your assessment

    I would cautiously suggest Bangface weekender. May be a little full on, but ticks a lot of your boxes.

    For what looks like a big event over a couple of days that looks pretty bland to be honest

    If it’s not been coined by the media, we heard it here first.

    That was a 1 day event.
    15 acts on there that I love.

    They haven’t yet done a two day despite wanting to.

    Qualify that statement because all I’m assuming at the moment is that you live in Milton Keynes and are upset that it took you longer to get to the shops that day because people had the cheek to enjoy themselves on your doorstep.

    no, i was in the front of house tower from doors till about an hour after it finished. i wouldn't wish that shit on my worst enemy.

    So you were working. Not a relevant opinion then.
    If you were a punter with a pint in your hand and no work to do you’d have loved it.

    It says 12th and 13th July? Or was that a Sat day/night into Sunday morning.

    I might have enjoyed My Nu leng. Marco Carola and Fatboy Slim might have been OK (not sure what either are doing these days). The others that I've heard of would put me to sleep or have me running from the field and I quickly checked a couple I'd not heard of and they were fucking awful.

    Everyone has their own taste and I guess that party ain't for me. Glad you enjoyed it though

    Once again your opinion isn’t valid.
    I hate Country and Western and so my opinion on whether Garth Brooks gave a good concert or not hold no weight

    The Sunday was cancelled.

    Stupid location to be honest.
    Last train to London leaves before the music finishes.
    Hardly any hotel rooms available for both crew and punters.
    Car parking not great.

    I like the bowl itself just not where the bowl is.

    I keep forgetting Urban is a hive of people who hate those at the top of their game and churn out perfectly produced tracks.
    Instead it’s all about the underground, those bitter not to have made it and pretending that their less than perfect stuff is somehow purer because only 26 people at a time want to listen to it.

    sojourner Where's me readers?

  29. ska invita

    ska invita back on the other side

    ddraig dros ben llestri

    you're a joke :D
    urban is full of people who have a clue and have been involved for many years directly not a bandwagon (and queue) jumping johnny come lately dick who thinks because someone is popular they must be good
