It is amazing how many are springing back to life... I wonder if they are all with the original team of people?

No doubt for predominantly the same reason as back in the day.... Money! ;)

Few promoters were in it just to have a good time, that was what the Free Parties were for.... @-)

Call me a cynic.... :))

Not sure you can say that so much about Dreamscape. They did the reunion for charity...

Jim Tang the DS promoter is also one of the nicest guys ever! Always got loads of time for anyone ;)

Been to Fantazia in Stoke last year, and Dreamscape in November! Great nights, especially Dreamscape! :ymparty:

Will be going to Dreamscape again in May and Fantazia Donnington, not sure about others yet as it costs a fair bit to get over from Jersey.

Other promoters doing events this year are Club Kinetic and Quest (that i can remember off the top of my head), and there is a big 2 day Old Skool festival Retro Trax in Bath in early May :)

Dreamscape are the OG crew Jim Tang and Mark "Staf" Stafford

Fantazia is promoted by Alex "MC Energy", he is the Illusion promoter but Fantazia contract out their events to him

To be fair there's been a steady flow of 'Old Skool' Raves for the past 12 years or so.... Fantazia have been promoting events every so often... now we have Dreamscpae back again... Promoters like Desire, Raveology, Hysteria, United Dance, AWOL and Raindance have been putting on regular events... Some more succussful than others!

Like to think the promoters are doing it for the right reasons but £20+ for Fantazia in the Opera House in Bournemouth!!! :-o

Things such as music, fashion, toys and attitude go round in about 20-25year cycles... Which is about right. But it won't be the exact same cos it's a different generation. :| thats not a bad thing! ... I just wish that 20 years ago had a camera phone... No, just a neat small camera would do. :D
