Helter Skelter (best rave ever)

Don't expect anyone on here to know what this is (except JC) but by any chance is anyone going to the last one at Bowlers in Trafford in Manchester on August 4th. Don't worry I don't expect many replies to this? Well not reasonable ones anyhow!

    I'm not going because i've heard very bad things about Bowlers.

    And I don't like hardcore either.

    How much is the fish?

    Hey Ive heard of Helter Skelter, its a legend! I was meant to go one year but never did...some of my mates used to go though.
    I certainly wont be going all the way to Manchester though, even if it is meant to be the bollox <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif"&gt;

    Agree with you about both. Bowlers is a bit dodge and It's not just hardcore thank fuck!

    Problem I always find with Bowlers is the daft shutting times, ever since Demand took over Asylum with these Compulsion events they've been shutting the place at like 2/4am which isn't very bloody useful if you don't drive and wanna catch a train...

    I've been to compulsion a few times in the past, not a bad event, last time I went the techno-arena stage vibrated too much when people danced on it (I know I got told off.. heh)

    Helter Skelter is legendary, always meant to go but always just picked up the tapes instead. Won't be travelling to Manc just for that, if I was going all the way up there I'd go to VooDoo in Liverpool instead, assuming it's still running.

    I've been to Helter a few times when it was at the skank-tuary (nicknamed for obvious reasons), pretty mental really, pie-eyed on the dodgems... lol

    One of my favourite raves is Raindance and the gone but not forgotten Pleasuredome... quality! <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif"&gt;

    Me...I love United Dance, went to one a year or so ago at Bagleys it was fantastic <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif"&gt;
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru

    I went to one about a year ago at Bagleys too.. just wondering if it was the same one...

    *thinks*

    It was about the time of addicted to dance, I'll look for the dates...

    Been to Helter at the Santuary a few times myself. I went to Raindance for the first time a couple of weeks ago. Was quality apart from the heat from which a couple of people died.

    I don't go raving as much nowadays coz the musics all changing but there's still a few events I'll go to. Bring back the Old Skool breaks! Problem is we're all growing up and it's scary.

    Ive no idea, I cant even remeber what day of the week it is so I aint got much hope in remebering that lol. It must have been at least two years ago though coz this time last year I was pregnant and stuff, and it was also when I worked at my old coffee shop. Im guessing two years ago but Im not really sure at all lmfao!

    what about gatecrasher? in my mind that still remains the top spot for UK clubbing

    Playing with fire will ultimately see you burnt <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.stopstart.fsnet.co.uk/smilie/ukliam2.gif"&gt;

    There's quite a bit of difference. Without a doubt Gatecrasher would be quality but for me it would be a bit different than Helter. What I class as raving is alittle different than clubbing. I see Helter as the best rave ever and I see Gatecrsher as the being a wicked night clubbing.

    Gatecrasher definatly is a top venue and everyone is always friendly in my view...

    Saying that tho, Gatecrashers routes come from Fantasia, and thats where all the gatecrasher kid theme came from, so its not as unique as people make out... candy ravers.. <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    Gatecrasher used to be a group which where signed by Fantasia, they later went on to club and most of the themes were Fantasia orientated...

    Can't fault the club tho, I do love it, its my favourite club north of birmingham.. <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif"&gt;

    They will do. Helter's now split into two seperate events.
    1. (vs sidewinder)D&B, Jungle and Garage
    2.(vs Compulsion) Hardcore, Old Skool Hardhouse and Techno.

    It's a shame coz I like all of it.

    Talking about raves.... (I haven't really read the whole thread, btw...) did anyone happen to go to the Pickle rave in north west London on saturday night?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru

    Gone to Passion recently, just calmed down abit since then.
