sean - i agree with you

but those reasons are out of the control of the promoter arent they....the showrides however arent, and i really dont think they would have been added to the list just to "get ppl there"

but i got the impression that she thinks delirium was being deceptive to "get ppl there"

my point is that im sure the rides werent used to convince ppl to come and im sure there is a good reason as to why they werent operating

The point by Maiden is a valid one. We did apologise for that after Sci-Fi last year. No it wasn't deliberately deceptive but we did fail to deliver the promised rides. I believe I also e-mailed Maiden personally about that at the time.
Ultimately Maiden it is your decision whether you choose to take our word for what is advertised for this years event and either go or don't go accordingly.

Okay i was just saying it as a joke i know that people don't go out just for show rides apart from the fact my ticket was free last year i was just excitted at the fact there would be rides because in the middle of the day when it's hot and you're just sitting outside it would of been fun.

SC- lots of summer carnivals/events have had rides it's a way of keeping people entertained who aren't there to gurn or perhaps don't like some of the dj's playing but since they are all day events people usually go ALL day...

u know what the best thing is about living in perth with this poltical climate in this day and age? you don't have to go to something if you don't want to. you don't have to listen to something if you don't want to. hell you don't even have to look at something ( like gurners throwing up on show rides) if you don't want to.

personally there wasn't any time during last sci fi that i couldn't find an act that was going off.

from rhibosome (sp?) to troy/puff (can't remember whom) and digby to infusion to derrick may / sasha / and shadow. all goodness.

will be great to see how that can be topped.

i know the guy who did that wrote him off for it when met him and everyone didnt really get why i did it
was not impressed
by then was too up for sasha though and on the way out so he didnt manage to fek up my ending.. pity about the rest of yas

if its at claremont again MUST block out the light in the 4 and 5 arenas (cant remember anything about 3rd ), apart from the better crowd, way better visuals, drinks available and generally betterness of the ADD arena compared to BDOs boiler room the blocking out of the sun at scifi was MUCH appreciated.

i didnt even know there were gonna be rides... yeah BDO would be pretty fun to run around gurnin at, there was too much good shit goin on at scifi to be bothered with even more places and things to be split between

sux to the trance and dnb fans. their arenas as sci fi last year really were hot.
but lucky for me it didnt interfere with derrick may

i really loved sci fi at the showgrounds last year,
but (and i may be totally wrong and confused) didnt the council people make the music shut off early?? so sasha and May didnt get to finish their sets properly. amen to that never happening again

i have never been to belmont before. so i cant comment on whats better, but im sure the lineups and the actual music will make for a fantastic day anyway

(omg can u feel me feeling the PLUR?? im in such a disgustingly good mood)
all i want is an umbrella in my drink

The DnB arena was pretty shocking. Although it got cooler when it started raining sweat from the ceiling.

Some excellent acts though.

Agree with nosoup, belmont is a tops venue, so many different areas to be in and a really good atmosphere (almost like a rave with the whole warehouse feel) I've not been to claremont but belmont didn't seem to have any of the sound probs that most of you are saying claremont did. Yay GO BELMONT

Showgrounds sucked because of the noise restrictions. Don't think that will ever change because of the vocal silver-spoon-up-the-arse residents.
Belvoir is always great but the dust and setting the grass on fire factor is a problem. Also dancing to hard music during the day just doesn't feel right. Night time for techno! The amphitheatre in the evening is fucking fantastic for acts like Endorphin, Laurent Garnier etc... more of that.
For multiroom parties though Belmont takes the cake... apart from when daylight starts streaming in...

I don't know if the high roofs at belmont make much of a difference... a few years ago when they had an event there i think it was MOS 2000 or possibly new years ever that year but they didn't turn the air con on they forgot.. it was a fucking sweat box it was revolting.. that was one night oyu didn't care if the moron in front of you was swirling their water botlle around with no lid...
