Having done it solo, met up with a few boardies and a ton of amazing strangers, Demf feels like something that will be a part of me for as long as I'm in this country. I love celebrating electronic music in this fashion; it's perfect for me.

    Pilgrim, man I am tempted.. and if everyone else is cool I'm for it. I've ben looking at the hyatt and the casinos, but I believe that could easily be a waste of money considering the options available and the time you spend in your room. Plus I hear the place is safe.
    I think pretty much everyone wants to go to DEMF. But some of us have other priorities and can't afford to do it all. No doubt DEMF is a great party and Detroit has an unparalleled music history. No doubt its a party with some class, soul, and generally fucking awesome music. I want to go. We want to go. We just have other shit going on. But the way you keep coming off about it really makes it seem like you are on your high horse because you have been to DEMF and everyone who hasn't been are just know-nothings listening to soulless music and attending classless events.

    We know, Forza. DEMF is awesome. I don't think anyone (except Ronnie's blind loyalty to Miami) is going to dispute that. If I had the ability to spend the $1000 to do DEMF, I would. But I don't.

    There is more out there beyond music festivals, buddy.

    YES! Yesyesyesfuckingyes.

    All trivializing overexuberence aside; Decibel Festival showed me that a mix of original Detroit Techo, throwback Chicago House, along with a smattering of global minimalists and progressives like his hootenanny offers is second to none. To be blunt, it made 3/4 of the edm on offer at major music festivals seem really lame.

    Circumstances permitting I'm making every effort to attend. The biggest hurdle is definitely that goddamn airfare, shit's like half the trip budget.

    I'm fairly certain I'll have to put this off until at least next year.
    But in the mean time I'm going to attempt to save and see what happens.

    Its $40 for a reason. The reason being its the same rehashed lineup every other year. Go to 2 or 3 & you've been to all of them.

    Seems like you want to go so you can compare to Ultra, not just to experience something new.

    That's cool, I'm glad that's not the reasoning you want to go. In response to your question, it would be bad because they are 2 completely different types of events. While both are electronic music festivals they are both great for different reasons. When you go into something looking to compare it to something else instead of just looking to have an amazing time you don't exactly get the same experience. Or at least that's how I see it.

    I can understand DEMF not being on the top of people's list of priorities, but if you can get a round trip flight or bus ticket for a hundred bucks or so (that's the limit I'd put, it only cost me like $20 round trip >.< ), it's hands down the best bang for your buck you can get at an outdoor fest, and the atmosphere is so fucking fantastic. everyone from detroit, even the POLICE, are just happy to be out with lots of other happy people partying and having a good time. seriously- cops decked out in mardi gras beads and DETROIT=REAL TECHNO pins, dancing to the beat as they direct traffic outside the gates. and drink vendors inside that don't bat an eyelash when you ask for five shots of vodka in one cup, and a can of red bull.

    I really really want anyone that can do it to come down this year. I promise you won't regret it. it's not coachella, but it's not meant to be. it's a straight-up, balls-to-the-wall PARTY of the finest degree.
    well put

    You have no idea how much there is 'out there' beyond music festivals, pal.

    Go explore some and tell me what you find.

    Zimm, Ryan, little matt- i was a bit overzealous last year, I admit it. I am not taking that approach any longer and would appreciate it if you could just drop it. thanks.

    Acid Didj-->Recloose-->DJ Pierre-->Larry Heard-->Anthony Shake Shakir-->Cassy--->a lil Kraak & Smaak-->Richie Hawtin for an hour (Ricardos slot)-->Rob Hood--Derrick May-->Inner City

    I have zero complaints about my day.. i already had to skip hudmo, pscatron, Orlando Vorn and ghostland. Ricardo's presence would have elimanted rob hood and derrick may.. glad i saw them.

    Inner City was fucking awesome... when they dropped "blackwater" by Octave One the place went nuts

    i hear ya man... He had a visa issue. You know it was one of those things that when I heard about it I was truly bummed but I just buried those feelings until you reminded me here... now I'm hoping they invite him back this year and give him an even longer set (he was scheduled for 3 hours)

    The best thing about Villalobos is his dedication to spinning vynal. Not many people do that anymore and it's good to see some still do.

    Damnit I always spell vinyl wrong haha, but yeah I didn't know that about him either until I read RA's top 100 DJ's of 2010 and it said he almost purely plays vinyl. When you see someone spinn strictly wax it's a true showcase of mixing ability. No traktor helping you match beats, no ableton helping you out here and there, just pure talent. I've seen Andy C do the "3 deck vinyl assault" as it was called when I saw it, such an amazing showcase of talent.

    here's the link just in case you hadn't seen the list. http://www.residentadvisor.net/feature.aspx?1221

    Amon did a 4-deck Vinyl only set in Seattle @ Neumo's (sp?) in 2009. That one seems to be a pretty popular recording floating around the interweb. It's amazing too.

    DJ godfather. I'd never enjoyed booty house and ghetto tech for longer than 3 minutes before. I had no idea the guy was such an intense turntablist. and the cheesiness just felt totally okay because everyone (and I mean EVERYONE) was hammered and dancing and happy. a perfect example of how demf makes stuff even better than it'd normally be.

    he wasn't the BEST, but he was the biggest surprise for me.

    best was plastikman. the location, the personal touches he brought to the set (and it was longer than an hour), the unbelievable sound (best sound I've heard anywhere outside coachella [or one of my soundsystems! teehee!]) and the crowd. and drinking a camelback full of OJ and vodka and smoking a couple grams of kif with awesome coachella board company during his set didn't hurt either
