First rave was out in a little camping ground called Starlings Gap out in the yarra valley. Hoffman 2000s for my first acid experience when I was 17. Think Solaar at lounge was my first club night. Ahh the good ol' days!

Belfast in '96 @ the Docks

I don't remember too much other than I had acid for the first time and everyone sounded like they where a jockey with a high pitched voice.

Was lucky enough to attend Global Village, inlcuding Global Village shut down. Went to my first party at Dome around the same time. Must have been 1995 summer of 96? Around the same time started going to Filter, Pervayors and Big Bamboo once.

Wow....

Can't recall...

I think the first "rave" I went to was Welcome NYE with Loxy and Ink on the Docks.

Although I'd been to a few 33 1/3 parties @ POW (Freestylers etc) and BW shows prior.

i remember the many muzzas very very well (i didnt even have a name for them back then :1 just knew they were disgusting), breaks 'room' in a hallway and drum n bass, was good.
a girl was bending over to do up her shoes on the dancefloor, i thought she was a stool and sat on her, crushing her into the floor whilst pinging really really hard. vivid memory.

I honestly can't recall (bad sign I guess). May have been Aphrodite and Mikey Finn at Capsule. Found out much later that my future ex boyfriend Paranoid Edge was sitting about four feet from me the whole time. First time I saw OneLc live after hearing him on Future Unknown for so long.

1999?

First proper party was Earthcore 1997. Attempted to go to one at Mercat hotel in 1996, but the guy I went with was taking his first acid trip and wigged out in the line to get in. They said he couldn't go in, so we had to leave.

First clubbing....hmmm...totally commercial, but I used to hit Redhead in Albert Park and Silvers in 1998. I even used to drink vodka with a raspberry mixer. WTF!

I just turned 18, gimme a friggin' break. Also went to Every Picture Tells a Story 1999, can't really remember a lot of it though! Fell out of clubbing around 2000-2003, but still listened to dance/electronic. Then frequented Arkitekture at Lounge after that a little bit whenever that was still around (pre-Out Of Order) days. Wow, my memory banks are really being tested!

Gatecrasher was my first rave - But it was the Wet (blue) tour in '99. Still think that album is one of the bestest ever cause it just brings back memories of first time out and proper wasted.

The Gatecrasher with Bukem and Roni etc was absolutely smashing - The vibe with 3000 people going nuts inside that tent was fuckin amazin'

First dnb gig was a Tekstep party with Fierce @ POD on Lil Bourke St. Smashing gig, I remember meeting some randoms and going back to their house, never saw them again - but one of the girls there was stupid hot I rememeber that much ;-)
