Dousk and Kasey Taylor's monday arvo rainbow by a mile
Been out of Melb's the rest of the Year, Best party o/s Fusion Festival Germany, best gigs would be anything at the Berghain or Bar25 Berlin, but it's all too blurry to put a finger on what and when, just where...
oh and Slam at watergate, and Schaffhauser in some dodgey brewery cellar. all very very top notch.

Arcade Fire at BDO (yes, I know the forum would have been better)
Kid Koala at FMF
Paul Weller at the Forum
Goldfrapp @ Parklife
Soulwax @ Parklife
Phil K @ Sterosonic
Giuseppe @ Sterosonic
DJ Hell @ Stereosonic

Been pretty frustrated at the lack of smaller gigs on my list - I'd have loved to get to Digweed or some of the stuff in Brown Alley but life is all about compromises....

Stevie Wonder @ Rod Laver/ Bne Ent.Centre - fucking genius.

Vath @ QBH - Hadn't had a night like that for @ least 10 years and everything after has paled in comparison.

Tejada @ Brown Alley after Hot BBQ.

Supermayer indeed

Tanzmann was pretty damn good, besides the chicks glassing each other on the dancefloor.

Anja, this will have some old-school sounds involved and some old school artists ... not necessarily old-school tracks though

Enjoyed almost every event i went to but the stand outs were:

Digweed @ Fabric (but i think most was due to the experience rather than his set)
Tiesto @ Festival Hall (Saturday & Friday...such and energetic crowd!)
Ferry @ Cavo Paradiso (awesome set, crowd was lacking but everyone that turned up was going nuts)
17/01 - Mark Norman@Miss Libs
08/03 - FMF@Flem
10/04 - Trance Energy@CPTD
??/05 - ??/09 - Europe??

Big call, I know, but not only this was this the gig of the year for me, but infact the best dance party I have been to - Moonpark - Buenos Aires, amongst 7,000 punters...Danny Howells from 12-3am, then John Digweed from 3am to 6am...to make it even more perfect, Diggers closes on Heaven Scent!

Lee Burridge @ Darkbeat deserves a mention as well

Just reading some history and found this . Up until last week I would have said a Moonpark was my best ever!! August 2010 but Hernan Cattanneo rather than Digweed . Then last week I went to Stereo Montreal to see Hernan and that was definitely best ever .

Hey you can still post

hey everyone. I've decided to revive the ozclubbers forums, with the idea that it will fill the vacuum with the loss of the ITM forums. I'm welcoming all ITM members to the new forums, and hoping you will make the switch and start posting! Check it out and let me know what you think. www.ozclubbers.com.au
I've revived the Ozclubbers forums now. Go here
