YEsss Yess Yesssss!! I will be living in Las Vegas by this time baby!! I am so excited. I don't know which day Markus is playing although I know its not the 6th because he is in NYC by then. I am so upset about possibily having to miss the Zoo in NYC- However this mostly makes up for it.

Additionally, my boyfriend (http://www.MikeyMcNulty.com) will be photographing this event too so i will be SURE to post his pics up (of course right) :) :)

I went to Fabulous Fest last year (it was on Nov 1) in Vegas with Armin van Buuren headlining. It was the first year of the event and held at the Orleans Arena. I went in not expecting much. We got there near midnight and the place was actually pretty empty. If it was some club, I wouldn't be worried yet...but this was an ARENA!!!

But leave it to Vegas to be the city where it didn't matter where the party was, people are gonna show up late in style. I would say the place got full around 2am (the event went until 6am) right as Armin was coming on (and Deadmau5 was after him).

Anyhow, I thought the way the production does and all was GREAT! Basically, they started qwith using few lights and effects. Then as the night went along and the place filled up , more of the lighting system was used, lasers were turned on, etc. It was a great way to build up the night.

In the end, we left aftering having a great time. The crowd was surprising good and alive....

...this all said, now that I know this I hope we can find a way to Vegas that weekend. It's Labor Day Weekend, so it'll make it harder to afford.

A difference in this year is that it's at the Palms Casino...or Rain Nightclub. It's where Paul Oakenfold has his Perfecto nights on the weekends, which is why he's prob a part of this! Last year it was at the Orleans Arena and 18+ or All Ages, I forget....this year will prob be of the Vegas club crowd (not a good thing!). Also, the team behind the event in the Netherlands is literally the same people handle everything last year from what I remember. This year, I see GoVentures as a co-organizer...GV is behind events in LA like Monster Massive and Together As One (and did Armin Only last NYE)...and do The Love Festival in a few cities. Anyhow, should be a good setup.

Hey Dave!- Thats cool you went last year, I heard it was fun. I am def psyched for this year, Rain is a good sized venue too.. I mean I bet it will be PACKED tho with all these DJs.. Where are you from? You should totally come if you can!!!... My boyfriend is photographing this event so we are both definitely going, and i would be there regardless of him anyways lolol.

Well-- I looked at the updated schedule and apparantly it is going to be on the 6th- So Markus is going to be playing in NYC and Vegas on the same day, but if his NYC set is afternoon/evening and his Vegas set is later in the night im sure itlll work out fine with the time difference- However i am going to be so nervous that day LOL. Typical me.

Rain is a really cool club imo- except for the whole fire thing ( God I miss Ice)
When I was there for the Love Fest in May they had a really beautiful stage set up and flowers on the side where the girls danced.

When I was there for the weekend of Markus there was aerial artist. It was awesome.

Wish I could join you guys but got a flight to Catch to Ibiza early Monday ;)

looks like 3 openers and felix & markus to close, starts at 9, openers end at 12, felix for 2 hrs..markus for 2 hrs?

:(

after seeing markus for 4.5hrs at ruby skye, i'm spoiled and a 2hr gig will seem too short.

Bummer, but who knows. He may play longer. I agree, 2 hours is way too short, espically after his 4 hour set at Moon. We shall see

Remember, even though it's at a club, overall it's a part of a "festival" ... so 2 hours is typical. Hell, 2 hours is pretty much standard for most clubs/cities around the world.

modthispny, most of the big headliners play for 4 hours when playing for Spundae in San Francisco. Not all, but most. SF and NYC are known for being lucky to get 4 hour gigs on a regular basis if it's with the right promoter (note, in tons of the cases it's really the DJ who plays 4+ hours...their contract might only call for 2 or 3.)

Anyhow, if I get set times for FabFest, I'll psot them.

he is definitely closing so he might just bang it right out of the gates, but his buildups are awesome, i've really grown an appreciation for darker and melodic trance.

if i wasn't already going to electric zoo i would be skeming to go to this markus and steve angello, i'd die. imo angello played the best set i've heard in new york all year (damn business trip made me miss markus' set in january which i heard was THE set of the year from a lot of people).

anyhow if markus is closing out in vegas that means he probably won't open out at electric zoo which i'm happy about. i don't want him to be first because would love to save the best for last :).

So anyone know set times for Markus for these two events?

From my understanding they won't be releasing the Electric Zoo festival set times until that day. I'm honestly thinking about flying into NY early that day, catching the festival then catching a flight back home....Or I think I'm a little crazy :P

I will be in Vegas for this event, I cant wait!

Also, I will see Markus spin at Cream stereo lounge here in AZ on 9-2-09 then go out and see him at Rain. Going to be a kick ass week!
