I'm not getting any younger so i tend to save big club nights for when they have headline acts I like.  Fairly recently I was at Godskitchen to see Above & Beyond and a few weeks back saw Armin Van Buuren at the Ministry.  I'm also going to Southwest 4 later this year and am looking out for another Above & Beyond date in the UK soonish.  Other than that I'll be looking for big names as and when i can make it.  I'd be there like a shot for acts like Ferry Corsten, Menno de Jong (was on the list with Armin - awesome!), Andy Moor, Jaytech, Ronski Speed, Signalrunners etc.  Will let you know when i'm going next

My clubbing has been a bit lax this year, like you im not getting younger - 30 this year! I've been to see The Prodigy twice now and have been to Matter at the O2 to a True Players night. South West Four was on the cards but I think clashes with a wedding. In the past years I always try to get to at least one of, Global Gatheriing, Creamfeilds, SW4 etc. I've never been to the Ministry though.

I'm 30 next year so i tend to feel a little old at these events although i have a baby face so fit in just fine!  The Ministry is incredible.  The music is so loud but the sound system is so good that you can still talk to people despite the volume.  The clarity is superb.  The venue itself is pretty high spec too althoguh the main room is just that - a room with a massive DJ box and some huge speakers.  Well worth a visit

I think how they do that is through the use of lots of sound insulation material which stops reflections from bouncing all around the room.  Before my sister and her boyfreind moved into my dedicated cinema/music room (still p!ssed about that >Sad) i used to hang a couple of old duvet's on two of the walls and fitted curved curtain rails so the curtains wrap around onto the walls either side of the screen. The difference was amazing and cut out about 90% of sound leakage so i could still listen to it at a sensible volume without driving everyone else mad. In poorly sound conditioned rooms most of the racket you struggle to talk over is sound reflections.

Interesting - i wondered how they'd managed it.  Its a very impressive setup!
