I really love Hart Plaza as a venue despite its problems and would hate to ever see it change, but I do think it's time to start thinking about lowering capacity. I don't think it's quite hit the tipping point yet where it's just too overfilled with too many idiots, but it's moving in that way. I noticed way more stupidity this year than in years past and although most of the crowd was lovely, it only takes a couple of idiots to fuck things up for everyone. The last couple of sets each day were definitely pretty overcrowded, especially on Beatport and the main (the underground got a lot better after Saturday afternoon I thought, although I avoided it most all of Monday because I knew people hiding from the rain would dominate it and I had plenty of other shit I wanted to see). I couldn't get anywhere near Squarepusher and gave up and ended up at Dan Bell, which was perfect.
