I note that for my school, they only link to an old ERO Report from 2008, not the latest one from 2011. Seems to be the case for a few others I quickly checked too.
So if I read the article Ian linked, Lees quit BDO because he didn't like what the nasty people on Facebook said about the shitty sub-par lineup?
From Russell's Unlimited piece:
"just how have a group of young entrepreneurs so successfully tapped into a generation? And how do they do it when so many others have failed, none more spectacularly than last year’s Sweetwaters?"
Steep contrast to today, where they seem hopelessly disconnected from this generation.
2001 clearly had the best Boiler Room line up. In pretty much exactly this order: Adam Freeland, Pnau, Pitch Black, Greg Churchill, Darren Emerson, Roni Size & Reprazent full live band, Carl Cox. Mind, I didn't stay for Coxy, I wandered off to dance to Concord Dawn while shirtless at the little wee temp stage knocked up out of plywood WAY over the back of the Supertop. Good times.
