Science Fiction 2003
There are laot of roumours flying around that SciFi this year is being held at Belmont Racecourse.

4 People have asked me if this is true or not and i told em that i have no idea.

Does anyone else know anything about this?
What if your Fears and Dreams existed in the same place?

What if to get to Heaven you had to Brave Hell?

What if everything you've ever wanted,
cost you everything you've ever Achieved?

Would you still go there?

I heard that Belmont won't be holding another event cos they basically chucked a poopy cos they don't wont another of these events held there.

They basically want to keep it just for racing and 'civilised' functions! they've even changed the sign on the roof to make it look more posh if you want to put it that way!

There's a nasty rumour going around that MRW might be playing a supporting role in the lineup, sure you can afford him?

mmm sci fi was the shiznit. could only dance for 10 minute periods until later on when it started coolin down tho. the way they had it in the different sheds made it seem as if there was nowhere near the 10k plus people that were there...

hang on, thats what i think it was, how many ppl were there?

mm, anyway had quite a mad little time.. looking forward to the next one

new years, well tiesto is a possibility, he said in the chat here the other day he'd be trying to make NY in oz, and given perth is favourable as far as travelling in time zones and whatever.. maybe NYD? not that the resident tek heads round hear would be very keen for his showing...

Where else in Perth are you going to get a venue that caters for as many genres and as many people as Claremont Showgrounds?

It's tailor-made for events like this!

I thought last year's Sci Fi was superb...just imagine what Delirium could do this year now that they've given it a go once, and can refine and tinker with last year's plans!

Belmont is a hell-hole compared to the showgrounds!

Yeah, but if the acts you want to see are put in an outside arena at claremont, there's absolutely no reason to turn up.

I really rated Shadow, but I was about 2 metres from the speakers and it still sounded pretty quiet.

But that's stuff that can be changed...Delirium will take comments like that on board and deal with it for the next event.

The showgrounds has so much potential...Belmont had reached its limits!

There are more sheds at claremont that can be used if they open it up more towards sideshow alley area... depends howmuch security you want around cos there is lots more areas to use just means you'd need a friggin taxi to get the gurners from one end to the other.. As far as the heat goes maybe since they know how hot it gets they can do something about installing some big arse fans even if they are portable ones or blacking out the roofs a little.

It wont be held at belmont heard a couple of rumours why but basically the two parties dont see eye to eye on arrangements or some shit...

Either way i want show rides this year you promised them last year and there were none so they better be there this year...

All in good time children. The combinations and permutations are endless.

seriously maiden, why are you going?

rides, albiet they're fun value adds for an event, are hardly the determining factor if you want to go to a music event.

i think we should back off maiden, she's pointing out that in the past an advertised part of the event hasnt been provided. i know exactly how she feels. last week i went to nandos and got a quarter chicken and peri peri sauce. now the chicken is joy and the reason i go there but the peri peri sauce makes it that much nicer. so imagine my dismay when i got home and discovered i didnt get my peri peri sauce!@! i felt jipped. in the same way maiden must have. lets face it last year it was a summer festival. supposedly we were meant to run around having a good time outdoors with good music, and rides would have added to the atmosphere.

yeah but is the only reason you bought the chicken sean was cause it came with the sauce????

that is what i was asking maiden cause she said that it was advertised to "get ppl there"

i know it had no impact on my decision to go or not...woul dhave been fun if they had of been there but it wasnt a deciding factor

I loved SF last year ... i thought that INFUSION way by far the best act there ... they blew me away.

Took me three or four days to get back to reality

sure and i understand that

but Maiden said that it was said there would be show rides there to "GET PPL THERE", im pretty sure the lineup was the reason ppl went....

i doubt there would be one person who went solely for the showrides

i mean really

that was my point

yeah i see your point but we cant be so naive to think that everyone went "for the music" people go so they can gurn, or so they can be cool, or so they can just chill out in a nice environment, or to try something different. its the little things that make the biggest difference. show rides arent cheap to hire, and if you go to shows and fairs you'd know they arent cheap to ride either so if someone thinks they can get in say 4 rides during a day, thats already $20 value added to the ticket....
