Hey kidz, the end of the year is now charging towards us full steam ahead. The options of where to spent the Millennium have been narrowed down, with there really being only two options for the lovers of repetitive beats who want to flee the cities. In the North Island, there's 2000AD the event, which looks to be coming together nicely at East Pier in Napier. A band zone and dance zone are promised during this 24 hour party, featuring some of the finest DJs and bands from Ak and Welly. Check www.2000ad.co.nz for more information and details.
And of course, as you probably know, The Gathering is returning for its last and what is promised to be its best year. The limited 6000 tickets pretty much sold out and it looks as though the rest of the preparations have come together nicely. It will once again feature zones showcasing Trance, Techno, Drum and Bass, Hip Hop, Dub, House, Ambient, Hardcore and Jazz, with the beats provided by a wide selecton of DJs and electronic artists representing every part of New Zealand. As an added bonus, there are a couple of confirmed international acts, as well as more to be finalised. Check www.gathering.co.nz for info.
