- I don't usually reprint what promoters say about their own clubs/events,
but in this instance I think the Flashback people tell
it as it is.
"Our ethos was to capture and recreate all that made partying
in the early 90's so completely wicked. (If you weren't there
yourself, you've probably heard people moaning how "it isn't like
it used to be."). By using totally authentic old skool dj's and
mc's, Flashback gained a reputation as a night where you
weren't just going to hear all the old tunes, but also feel the
awesome atmosphere of what attitude-free clubbing was all about.
Flashback has grown into a fantastic night out with a true
family atmosphere, uniting people from all over the country, into
all sorts of different music.
Now, Flashback is more about capturing the moment than
desperately trying to recreate the past. Flashback's commitment
to looking after its' punters is paramount: All line-ups are 100%
confirmed so you know you're going to get what has been promised,
and we're not going to turn you away because your shirt has the
wrong label in it! Flashback clubbers are young and old,
rich and poor.
| Many used to go raving
and gave it up when things got moody and the music split into its
various forms. Many knew nothing about the underground dance scene
which gripped the nation but love the rave vibe anyway. Flashback
is a night where you can bumble around meeting friendly and like-minded
souls, where it doesn't matter how you dance 'cos everyone is more
concerned with having fun than being cooler than the next guy and
most importantly, where you know you're going to be gutted when the
dj spins that last record and it's time to go home.
So, 5 1/2 years old, Flashback is now a nationally recognised
rave (sometimes I still can't believe it!) and every event for well
over a year has sold out. We have 4 rooms of music that span virtually
every genre of underground hard dance music including the ambient
chill out experience upstairs - yep, we even decorate and theme the
chill-out arena! "
