where it all began - and how it evolved
mixed feelings on this one, not sure if I want to see all of them today, Oakie got fat and lost his roots (prefers games and Hollywood now) and I lost track of AvH's work (my oh my) but the Chems, Prodigy and 808state are real live promises and sure to rock...

The Orb, L & B and of course the beautiful Roisin Murphy of Moloko fame would make me wanna go to this one but the rest is nu rave and brit stuff which doesn't really interest me. and actually the one's I want to see will show up elsewhere too this summer

their so far announced line-up is big but kinda weaker for me than last years (which took place in Leeds and London), too many days and what they have on acts that interest me are too far spread.

festival crammed weekend but I know which one it would be for me.
this one has written techno and mnml written all over it.
Carl Craig is worth the money alone but to see all ze Germans too (native or migrated like Hawtin) is the icing

what a line up, truly worthy to celebrate the anniversary of this institution, all sorts of EDM are catered for, DnB heavy weights as well as some Trance but the main focus here is prolly on electro, prog and some nu rave.
