    I wouldn't throw an EDC. It's a shameful display. It's just a big fucking rave cage. Most people who can handle their shit probably wouldn't go to that nonsense. And so yes, the proportion of candy ravers and bubble gummers is fucking high.

    And that becomes the face of the CA dance community.

    Here's a little not-so-secret about these kind of shows. It's always the promoters fault. It doesn't matter if it isn't. It always is.

    sometimes the truth is hard to swallow, BUT doesn't 18+ eliminate most of the candy ravers?

    Yes. If not most, then at least half. And it gives so much room to DANCE and breathe and not feeling obligated to PLUR everyone who thinks they just had a significant moment with you.

    You have NO IDEA how uncrowded Nocturnal was. At times Alice's House (the main tent w Steve Angello, Dada Life, and other house acts) seemed packed, but there was SOO much room to dance. At the end of the night, while everyone else was watching Halliwell and Pretty Lights, a very very very very VERY small crowd had Green Velvet all to themselves. I was SUPER stoked about the intimacy. (Except the part where I couldn't find any youtube videos to help relive the moment because there was hardly anyone there).

    And the crowd wasn't AS stupid as usual with the Insomniac NOS events.

    SO YES, 18+ REQUIREMENT DEFINITELY SAVES THE DAY!

    Remember when those kids drove off the side of the mountain on their way home from juju beats? I think it was in 00 ... Everyone said that would be the end of raves in Cali. They even forced Nocturnal to be held out at Havasu. And now ten years later kids are still doing stupid shit at even larger massives and raves are still not banned ... I think thats a good sign raves will be around for a long time

    A promoter died falling asleep at the wheel on their way back from Havasu's Nocturnal that year too, IIRC.
    I remember that being a very brutal 4 hour drive home.

    I always get a chuckle out of the anti candy ravers.
    Jesus people, you're going to huge ass trance event with music tailored for leprechauns. Don't go to McDonalds and complain that they sell fries.

    Havasu was Nocturnal Wonderland 2000, I think. It was on an airstrip.

    I think the Coachella Nocturnal Wonderland was labor day weekend 1999, but I'm a little foggy on that. That would have made it about 6 weeks before the first Coachella and that doesn't seem right. Could have been 98.

    The downside was on display at monster massive. Practically no production. The only reason the lineup had such big names is because they were booked before 18+ was in place. Next year nocturnal will have even less good names on the bill. How will they get people there with a worse lineup than this year?

    Not to mention even less 18+ people will be interested next year, imo.

    the Coachella Nocturnal Wonderland wasn't 2001, because I know it took place before the first Coachella Festival. I remember that because it was the first and only event there that went all night long.

    I don't remember how many stages the Havasu one was but it was probably 5, all lined up on the airstrip. I was working a vendor booth so I didn't get to see much. I remember it was the first time I heard Green Velvet "La La Land".

    Ya im pretty sure it was five stages. Nocturnal was at the polo fields cause goldenvoice could not afford coachella that year and Paul asked Pasqual to throw an event there so the owners of the fields could still make money that year without coachella ... I remember walking out of the polo fields at the end of Nocturnal at like six or seven in the morning and the entire crowd broke out in applause it was the perfect ending to a perfect night

    man what a shit storm that party was. I remember the wind kept blowing the needles off the records. Also remember the hip hop stage losing power for almost an hour. Oh and the checkpoint right outside the party with cops checking every car pretty much

    That was one of my favorite moments at any party. Even though it happens every coachella, that one was the first i got to witness it on the polo fields.
