Three hours is actually the perfect length for a club set, in my eyes. When I think back to the best sets I've ever heard, the absolute unforgettable classic performances, almost all of them turn out to be three hour headline slots. I always salivate when I see that a DJ is playing 6 hours, or all night long, but in practise most of those marathon sets tend to ramble a little bit, or lack the sustained explosion of a headline slot. Three hours is perfect to build a proper set, but still blow it up without any flab.
