You're telling me, not to mention the venue is a little sketch.

But then how late did Farrina spin for? Hearing that he was only on until 2 maybe 4 didn't make me to disapointed that I couldn't get a ticket. 30$ for 2 hours isn't really a "deal".

I refuse to accept that this city closes at 2 ... there has got to be a demand for something that stays open even a bit later.

On weekends and holidays, select clubs open till 3 and sometimes 4.

Afterhours abound but you really have to dig to find out about the more underground ones. Gorgomish and the World are the only 2 legal afterhours venues in town and they go well into the morning (close at 6 or something) - hope you like prog house tho cause that's pretty much all they play.

The reason that Tiesto is an early show is that it's a stadium "concert" and not a club/rave event.

July 1st - Lotus Long Weekend @ Lotus w/ Llorca, Male Model Machine and (cough) Wood n Soo headlining each of the 3 rooms.

Clearly we need more festivals.

Where are the Canadian Gate Crashers or Glastonbury?

WEMF and Ohm just aren't enough!

The Tiesto show would be much better in an out door venue where you could rotate to another stage if he got into a bad/ch33se y / or over sentimental groove. Not to mention the ticket price would be more reasonable if you could catch some other DJ's spin earlier in the day.

apex is sometime in early august - it's just the one night but you can camp out there and there are plenty of stages to go check out. It's also located in this really cool valley out in chilliwack.

edit: duh should have read the first post!

there are a bunch scattered throughout BC every summer - i can't even name most of them offhand. A lot on the sunshine coast (although more of the hippie psytrance variety) - i recommend checking out the Diversity Festival just for the location - a ton throughout the interior too...

There are many 1-night parties within a couple of hours of downtown, apex being one of the biggest (and raviest) and Summer Break which has a ton of big-name acts headlining (Snoop Dogg for one). Both are located at Popkum field in Chiliwack.

There are a few more parties like Festivus or Girl Meets Boy that are usually smaller and chiller and free to boot.

Of course there are also the big ones like Shambhala and Soundwave...
