Google Maps: http://goo.gl/maps/LK1kq

Description: Apocalypse and Armageddon were both put on by Tribal Productions for the Australia Day Long Weekend. It was 1 Ticket = 2 Parties. One of the most mind blowing raves I went to. There were a stack of speakers as tall as the roof in the shape of a pyramid when you first walked in. I can’t remember it being a huge venue. I don’t know who the first DJ was, but he forgot his headphones and as a result, his mixing was a wee bit dodgy. The DJs were not elevated for once, they were right there on the dance floor. I was a very keen DJ trainspotter and I just remember that I was able to stand directly in front of Carl Cox for his whole set on 3 decks and  watching him mix, it was incredible, not to

 

just hear him but too watch his every move was incredible. He was going crazy on 3 decks, scratching and cutting and he knocked the needle off the record and everyone cheered. He just smiled and got on with it. The lights and overall effort by the promoter was shit, but the fact the promoter couldn’t be bothered to elevate the DJ made it an unforgettable party. The fact that Carl Cox also performed live made it a fantastic party.

The cops came to close it but could not find anyone who was running it so they pulled the mains power to the whole warehouse. No one wanted to go and when they told us to leave someone pegged a water bottle a one of them on stage.

Description: Clip from the ABC documentary Growing Up Fast, this clip takes us to the ‘Carnival Ov Thee Mind’ inner city rave in a disused railway yard, Eveleigh Railyards in Sydney’s Redfern. Awesome party and location, but was shut down at around 2am. The promoters had signs at the entrances saying “Extras enter here” or something along that line, to make it look like the rave was a film set. The party was unbelievable; you had to walk through the maze of train carriages to get to the different rooms. The main room was huge, and Meat Beat Manifesto played that night. They entered with each member carrying a 40 gallon drum and beating it with a stick. They were all in balaclavas, and once out the front, they stood on their gallon drums and then proceeded to light a flare each. Their set was awesome. The chillout was called “The haunted fishtank” and had heaps of decorations attached to string hanging from the ceiling. Heaps of people in fluro were dancing in there whilst bouncing on exercise trampolines!
