21/06/11 Worst DJ ever, Windows Media Player on a generic indie playlist would be better. No mixing at all! Songs from start to finish. Dead turn out. I'm sorry I paid money for this, I really am.
Drinks are expensive. Consider predrinking
Good view from the top balcony but it's pretty high so avoid if you're scared of heights!
Don't be late if you're in the balcony as you won't get a seat and you'll be lucky if you can see a thing!
Come in late to miss the support acts!!! White lies support acts are dire!! Pub bands are sooo much better!!!
drinks are way too expensive!
Feet sticking to the floor are the utter beauty of raves. Prices are a bit steep though.
Don't buy drinks on saturday night, £4 for a spirit and mixer
Don't expect to dance. Your feet will stick to the floor within minutes.
