I'm still curious about what clubs seitron has heard techno in that has led him to opine that massives are more suited for the genre.
Move over Menik. Guedita for board curmudgeon 2012.
Ah. You're right, I misread you earlier. You have more fun at massives than you do at clubs. Though if you think a parking lot with "big-ass speakers" is the same or better than a funktion sound system at PW then I'm just going to guess that you aren't really an audiophile.
I am an audiophile, but there are a fuckton of other things that impact how much fun I have besides audio quality, and I don't know why you think outside venues have shitty sound quality. I had no complaints about sound at EDC, which was also outside and put on by insomniac.
seitron aren't you in like fucking high school I seriously doubt you have a wide enough breadth of experience with clubbing to make such a generalized statement.
I found it particularly odd as well. I know zero people that prefer festival sets to club sets.
I enjoy myself at a set a lot more when I know that nearby there are other stages playing other music that I can't hear, too, though. So that one makes sense.
Well, sure, but the point has been made that San Francisco is not lacking in clubs or techno bookings. It's not as if Insomniac hosting a massive with a techno stage is replacing any void in that respect. Except I guess for the 18 and 19 and 20 year olds that can't get into the clubs in the city. But it would be silly to pretend that there's a sizeable group of techno-enthusiasts in that age range anyway.
Unless Nick's been techno trendsetting for all of his friends.
Guedita wants to go to this so that she can tell people she doesn't want to be there and that the venue/artists/crowd sucks.

And that was clearly not the best techno available that night in San Francisco, some dude with a foosball table threw down.
All you stupid fucks are laughing at me but I bet all of you prefer Chemical Brothers live over their dj sets. I don't particularly care for SMD dj sets either. Kaskade? Yeah I'd take the afterparty dj set.
Um. What? Plenty of artists, techno artists in particular, perform "live" in clubs. SMD and The Chemical Brothers have toured with their live show in non-festival settings.
You're doing an excellent job of making it patently clear that you've spent very little time in clubs.
For the record, I enjoy many forms of electronic music, I love the techno stages, Plastikman at Coachella was one of my favorite sets ever, but I also plan on going to and enjoying Tiesto in October. If you enjoy a sense of superiority over this, by all means go ahead and laugh/pleasure yourself to how hardcore you are. The idea that you not only listen to better music but you also listen to music better is laughable to me.
With the exception of a handful of artists such as those you previously mentioned, the difference between a festival set and a club set is not whether or not one is live and the other is a dj set. It's laughable that that's how you think things are.
But in 2003 Paul Van Dyk did a 3 hour set at Beyond LA, he only did 2.5 hours at Avalon 3 weeks prior.
