a combination of the venue/ artists/location and ambience. A great venue in a spectacular location is half the job done and then a good line up of internationals always does the trick. It’s been like this for the last 11 years. There are few exceptions and one would be WARPED. We have hosted parties in many different clubs most of them have not been very fancy and always run mostly with local talent and no entry fee. We have always wanted people to follow us for the music. We host these parties for the love of the genre and what I mean by this is that it isn’t a business – so the way we promote our parties is a lot different from the other promoters. We would like to take the experience a notch higher but we have to stay within our limits.

What’s been the biggest mistake you’ve made?
