    TOTALLY 'ARDCORE The Prehistoric Rave

    Sat 31 May at 10:00pm until Sun 01 June 2014 at 06:00am

    TOTALLY ‘ARDCORE is back for the first time in 2014 with a ‘Prehistoric Rave’ themed event. Following the massive success of our previous ‘Ravin Eye Fundraiser’ event, we are returning for the FINAL time to Motion Nightclub in Bristol (voted 31st best nightclub in the world). Some quotes from previous events include... “The best hardcore event I’ve been to this year.” Billy Daniel Bunter “The atmosphere was amazing!” MC Storm “A genuine, quality, raver-friendly party and it was an honour to be part of it.” Vibes “The crowd were off the scale!” Marc Smith “The best smaller event I’ve been to in years.” MC Obie Over the past 9 years Totally ‘Ardcore has built up the reputation of being Bristol’s longest regular running hardcore event and has received outstanding reviews in the Ravin Eye and Evening Post’s ‘Weekend’ magazine. The event takes pride in promoting a fun, friendly and safe atmosphere, which sees ravers from across the country returning again and again. As with all past events, the ‘Prehistoric Rave’ will be a themed party. On this occasion we are inviting you to come dressed as cave men, cave girls, or even dinosaurs if you are feeling whacky enough! (As always there will be a prize for the best dressed.) The ‘Flintstones’ inspired décor will be provided by our resident artist Trip, whose creations never fail to impress and really do set the scene! You can expect only the best in sound systems, and there will be state of the art lighting, lasers and smoke machines across both rooms. Inside the venue will be a stall selling a range of glow gadgets, noise makers and all the latest Totally ‘Ardcore merchandise (as featured on our website). The venue also has a terraced smoking area overlooking the river and another large smoking area at the front of the venue. Once again we shall be giving away FREE noisemakers to those who purchase advance tickets and 100 FREE vodka jellies to those who arrive at the club early. Our line up below is a mix of genres, with upfront hardcore featuring in one room, and a selection of old skool rave, happy hardcore, gabba and frenchcore featuring in the other. We pride ourselves on bringing you the best line up we can at the cheapest price possible. These events are put on purely out of love for the scene. :) ***LINE UP*** Hardcore Room Gammer (World’s Number 1 Hardcore DJ) Kurt (The Master of Powerstomp) Squad-e (Twista Records) Chaos (Lethal Theory) DJC b2b Miss Special K (Totally ‘Ardcore Residents Special) Hoodzie (Tryed and Tested) Technical Difficulties Showcase Nizzle b2b Shux Defective b2b Shax Old Skool / Gabba Room Vinylgroover (Classic 94 – 96 happy hardcore set) Kurt (Classics set) CLSM (Classic anthems set) Druid (Old skool set) Criminal (Frenchcore) Fade & Bananaman (Classic happy hardcore set) Pikey (Bouncy techno set) Vapour b2b Outburst (Classic 94 – 96 happy hardcore set) Magpie b2b Arf (Gabba set) MCs Across Both Rooms Whizzkid (World’s Number 1 Hardcore MC) Wotsee (Welsh Number 1) Skatty (Breakthough Award Winner) Rude (Uproar) NRG 3Man b2b Reconize Offside Unity b2b Energized Age-O Rainah Messiah Phoenix Mytee Nemesis Skyz Wilmzy Dream-e ***TICKETS AND PRICES*** Limited Early Bird tickets available at £8+bf from Standard tickets available at £12+bf each from… ONLINE ★The Ticket Sellers - Skiddle - ★Bristol Ticket Shop - ( Direct Link - ★Motion nightclub - SHOPS ★Bristol Ticket Shop - 26 Union St, Broadmead, Bristol, Avon BS1 2DP - (0117) 929 9008 ★Catapult Records - 3-7 Duke St, Cardiff, Glamorgan CF10 1AZ - (02921) 660633 ★Acorn Records - 3 Glovers Walk, Town Centre, Yeovil BA20 - 1LH (01935) 425503 And also from the ticket sellers listed below with no BF… ★Craig - Bristol - 07791912070 ★Kelly - Bristol - 07786108651 ★Chris - Bath/Melksham - 07730597013 ★Karen - Bristol / Bath / Chippenahm - 07872446057 Tickets will be more OTD!!
