What Do You Think About DAYTIME PARTIES???

promoters all over are now considering daytime events. due to unrelenting pressure from authorities (politicians, police, media), it seems that no matter what people do to make electronic music parties legitimate in the eyes of the powers that be, as soon as they overcome one hurdle, new ones pop up almost immediately.

if they can find a venue, then all of a sudden excessive pdo costs make the event impossible. if they can work out those expenses, then all of a sudden they have to deal with permit issues, union fees, threats of getting shut down for noise complaints, surprise injunctions, etc.

no matter how much progress the scene makes, there will ALWAYS be a stigma attached to all-night parties that will make certain events - especially large-scale events at one-shot venues - extremely difficult to pull off successfully.

enter the daytime party.

this is happening more and more often now. check this site out for an upcoming party in NYC - running from 12 noon to 12 midnight on a saturday: http://www.stuckonearth.com/

my question is: do you think events like this would work in toronto?

do you think people would go? do you think it would attract a different crowd? is this the way of the future or are high profile events like this better off extinct?

would you attend WEMF or OM if the music ran from 12 noon to 12 midnight?

i'm totally down with daytime parties.

Does anyone remember the street party that happened a few summers ago on Temperance? One of the best days of the summer, and it was free too!
UP festivals - RnB daytime parties at Sunnyside on sundays....but that would only work in the summer.

The UP Festival runs during the day.
I went last year and it was great to be outside in the sun, chillin with friends enjoying the music.
I think it could work.

Daytime parties are great if they're outdoors, but only if they're outdoors. I can't see too many people getting excited to be inside a dark club all day. And I also can't see daytime parties replacing our precious all-nighters.

I'm down with the daytime party, there'd booze flowing all afternoon long.

Sometime I wish that parties were during the day so that it wouldn't mess up your next day.

let's leave the UP festival and other FREE events out of this because obviously we'll all attend free parties. :)

would you go to a party like the NYC 'stuckonearth' party (see above link) if it was held at, say, toronto island? let's say you would buy a ticket if it was at night ... would you STILL buy one for the same price if it was held from 12 noon to 12 midnite?

what about a daytime 3-day? (i.e. music in the day, campfires, etc. at night)

daytime parties rock!

i love being able party outside under the sun. never mind no last call, no sleeping at weird hours, no fucking up your circadian rhythms.

hell, if i had my choice, there'd be way more daytime "festivals" than parties at night.

nope, too sketchy without beats @ night!

I would rather party untill 11 then go home and hit the decks!

I remember when I first started partying.. I kept asking people why they didn't have them during the day. people would look at me strangly but offer no reasons against the idea.

party all day, go home and sleep.. not fuck up your sleeping patterns! sounds good to me!

Pete you made a sweet point about not wanting to be held up in a dark room all day.. well you usually end up there after partying all night yes? lol

another problem would be if it got shut down - hundreds of sketchy people forced out into public. damn.. that'd be something to see!

I think it's a an idea worth trying. It'd be a new experience and I'm down wit dat.

funny you should mention that...

daytime parties (outdoors) would be wikkid! i can see people finding it awkward at first but i can also see people getting sold on that idea.. i mean hey people are just itchin' for sumtin new.

hmmm, some ideas that we were throwing around was a day time/ sleep over party at centre island.. not quite sure how that would work but it does sound neat..

summer will be an interesting time as the way we party (time wise anyhoo) is changing and it will be interesting to find out which company does this first..

hmmm, another idea would be to start the party early instead of the traditional 10:00 pm till whenever..


luv and laffs,

More daytime cruise events would be sweet! I love beats on a boat. My only problem with a cruise is that if it sucks you're kinda stuck.

probably not.. outside parties either seem too sketchy or I end up getting sunburned by the end. hmm.. mayby I just haven't been to a good one yet. or maybe it's the junglist in my that loves dark grungy basements.

what about a daytime 3-day? (i.e. music in the day, campfires, etc. at night)

anyone that went to WEMF knows that wouldn't work. it was 36 FUCKING DEGREES and humid as a mother fuck during the day, making it imposible to move.

couldn't work. mother nature is a bitch

i don't understand how having a party in daylight hours vs nighttime hours gives it any additional credibility in the eyes of the authorities (city/police etc)...but it is a good idea (look at the number of successful festivals in the uk), but many of the issues which apply at night (noise complaints) would also be problematic for daytime events...

the stuckonearth festival is an awesome lineup of talent, but there is no guarantee of its success...if you explore the evolution of the canadian party scene to the uk, we always seem to mirror everything a few years later...so i think festivals will be a huge part of our future...but what the promoters need to do is stop offering us one stop affairs like edgefest, but something more similar to homelands...

if i could go to an event which had several different areas...featuring live acts like jamiroquai, new order, radiohead, beastie boys etc alongside dj tents similar to stuckonearth i would definitely attend...(i think we had a thread like this last fall where loblaws, guv, koolhaus, were all turned into a party venue)...

a great idea, but it needs to offer something different & more diverse than simply a daytime rave/party...
