Two days after the party we’ve been all waiting for so long and all I can think of is anger! Everyone was so excited about it, we didn’t mind paying the 21 quid, after all it was an anniversary party from Twisted, so what the hell? Less organised people or people who just couldn’t buy ticketst in advance..had to pay much more on the door, but again.. no problemo.
But the thing is.. (and here the anger begins..), when the organisers -Twisted in this case, explain that it will be a limited tickets event and especially when the price is so high, you do expect the venue not to bet as packed! There’s rules about venue capacity mainly for health and safety reasons, I repeat.. SAFETY!
If let’s say there was a fire on or any other kind of emergency, we would all simply die in there like rats! The venue was more than just full and I’m sure everyone noticed.. When there’s such a big party happening, the least organisers can do is to at least try to find a more suitable venue, or sell less tickets! How greedy can they be? I mean common!! We had to wait for an hour on the cloak room when we got there, and then we had to wait for and hour and half when leaving. So, I was there from 12 till 8am, minus 2 hours and a half (cloackroom waiting time), which means that ‘quality time’ spent was only 5 hours and a half.. Nice hey???
When we finally managed to give our stuff on the cloackroom, the nightmare begun.. Couldn’t find any of our friends for hours, couldn’t get water or any kind of drinks without first waiting long ques (again!).. couldn’t enjoy Shpongle cos simply the room was bloody tiny.. I mean people.. how on earth did you expect the crowd to enjoy Shpongle in such a small room?? The minute Hallu’s set finished.. suddenly there was a wave of people heading towards the Retro room, none giving a toss about stepping on people’s foot, hands.. etc etc.. The room was simply not big enough, such a mayhem!
Then the tiny bottles of water.. Two pounds for that??? Rediculous.. Simply.
Security as lots of people pointed was another problem, but I won’t go into that. It has all been described perfectly well in previous posts..
So that’s it really.. I honestly can’t figure why Twisted decided to do the party at the specific venue. But even if that was their last and only choise.. they could simply sell less tickets. How greedy could they be? Cos the way it looked, the only thing that mattered to them was making some extra cash and not caring at all about Twisted’s fans. I feel sorry for people that flew from abroad just for this party.
P.S.1 Whenever there’s a big party from Twisted again.. won’t be on my list as a must go anymore and rather listen to their music indoors from the comfort of my living room and my personal sound system.
P.S.2 A huge applause to those who managed to keep calm, smile during most of the night and of course to those who dressed up and made the rooms look happier!
