Future Music Festival 2008

Having never previously attended a Future Music Festival in Sydney, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. A nice intimate festival below a sunny sky? A few lazy mares wandering around Randwick Racecourse chewing grass? Soothing sounds from some of the finer electronic DJ’s and artists from across the world? Imagine my shock, then, when I entered the gates and was welcomed by what surely must have been about 50,000 people, what seemed an endless amount of stages and not a single horse in sight.

Before we begin with the review, though, an appeal: Would it be legal for festival promoters to ban the removal of shirts (for beefy men in particular)? I mean surely I’m not the only one who doesn’t like the look of a sweaty, shirtless roided-up Muscle Mary giving it the ‘Look at me, I spend 16 hours at the gym every day and aren’t I a he-man?’ (Thankfully, I’m not a good looking 19 year-old female that probably bore the brunt of the egos of these battlers.)

In any case, there are things that Future could control. Set times and arena choice. In both respects, I have to criticize the organizers. Why did Sven Väth and John Digweed have to clash? Why not put Väth after Digweed and move Roger Sanchez? Why was Sven Väth in the Fanklub arena playing in between Datarock and Who Made Who? Why is Fanklub spelt with a k? And who the hell booked Tenzin?

Datarock. Not a fan. Who are they and what is their purpose? I think I counted four blokes on stage, all in matching tracksuits. It looked like a theatre production of The Royal Tenenbaums. I wished it was to be honest. Instead, they came off like a bunch of drunken bogans having a singalong.
