What ever happened to Gatecrasher?Watch
also its dead cause most places are cheaper (entry and drink) and have a 'guest list' (enter before 11 and its free).
Yes but he said that Gatecrasher departed from trance after the good old days of seeing deadmau5. Deadmau5 isn't trance.
It went down hill after it was shut for months after it suffered smoke damage from the fire at the restaurant next door.
Haha it does sound like Gatecrasher does have some money issues or maybe they're trying to cut costs as it clearly shows that they can't afford to have Armin van Buuren or Deadmau5 playing! Didn't they have the pigeon detectives doing a dj set a while back?!
Gatecrasher are having the same problem that has confounded anyone trying to start a 'big club' in Nottingham since the heyday of the dance music scene, Nottingham doesn't do big clubs. The most successful clubs in Nottingham have always been the smaller venues, its what the music scene in Nottingham was built upon, both dance music and rock etc.
The venue is too big for what many within the dance scene want and as a result they have to compromise their door policy in order to fill the place. Compromised door policy = townies. If folk want to go to a club full of townies they go to Oceana or some such trapping joint.
Another issue is that Gatecrasher (and all 'superclubs') relied upon 'die-hard' regulars when they were in Sheffield, the 'Crasher Kids'. The problem was those Crasher Kids felt an attachement to Gatecrasher Sheffield and when that burnt down and no replacement was offered (only now hae they decided to return to their roots) many of the regulars felt betrayed by Gatecrasher, especially so when the brand expanded into Nottingham and Birmingham. Gatecrasher should really have tried to foster this attachment in Nottingham but it seems that they were going for a clean slate and cutting with their past, something I believe was a big mistake.
An interesting thread to read guys. I'm starting a trance brand in Nottingham were the music policy is pure trance - I suppose like Gatecrasher used to be when it first took up residency at Media, Queens St. As a start up brand I won't attract big
