Trance Promoters for WMC need to figure their shit out with the agents better. Dont have competing trance events. The one at the more known venue will get everyone - example Nocturnal losing to Space, The Kingdom location (forgot the name) losing to Space, Nikki losing to Ultra (day party), Tyas SVD pool party losing to ... well that was to itself for shit promotion and not releasing the talent all at once. Thats another thing. Trance isnt big during WMC. Dont do the stupid phases with your lineup. You want to sell as many as you can before other events are announced. Too bad promoters never learn.
I agree with you wholeheartedly. Trance for many of us is bleeding out, it's critical now that we do anything and everything possible to keep it going. Showing clubs and promoters that their are fans out there that are willing to spend money to see Trance artists. When events clash all it does it hurt us more, but then again I would imagine that trying to organize all trance events so that they don't overlap would be a logistical nightmare.
You can defend them all you want, in fact I admire you for doing so, but don't you find it a little suspect that whenever these characters change their style and sound - it's always a "coincidence" they select whatever sound happens to be "popular" that month? - John Askew
A lot of artists today are just victims, not having control, and they're not free. And that's pathetic. If you start being dependent on money, then money has to reach a point to fit your expenses. - Thomas Bangalter
