      Hi everyone,
        I've been hard at it again over the past few months, and as you may have noticed, the site is not only becoming a one-stop-shop for everything about clubbing, but even running smoother and faster!  As part of it becoming a one-stop-shop, here's some new things that have been added   News and Reviews
      The News and Reviews section has launched!  Not only are we getting syndicated feeds from a number of reputable sources in the electronic music industry, but we have our own writers posting news and reviews!  This makes Ozclubbers.com.au a single place that you can go to get all the news, rather than jumping to multiple different websites across your day.
      Of course, we are always on the lookout for more writers, so if you think you can contribute, head over to https://ozclubbers.com.au/application and send us through an application! 
      Events
      Firstly, we have opened up Event Adding so that you no longer need to be a member to add your event.  If you aren't a member, you will need to wait for your event to be approved by a moderator before it appears on the site.  If you are a member, not only is your event is automatically approved, but you can respond to comments and view the RSVP list.  To add an event, go to https://ozclubbers.com.au/calendar/submit.  Remember, adding events is completely free!
      Secondly, we have linked up with a number of venues to have their Facebook events now appear on our Calendar. So not only will you see events that various event promoters post up, you'll also get to see the events from venues as well.
      If you are a venue, and would like to get your Facebook events linked up to appear on Ozclubbers, get in touch with @AdamMadd and we can arrange it - it costs you absolutely nothing!
      And lastly, for those in Brisbane, any events added to the Brisbane calendar will automatically appear on the Brisbane Social and The Valley facebook pages.  Great way to get free promotion!
      If you are the owner/manager of a Facebook page in your city dedicated to the clubbing and electronic music scene, get in touch with @AdamMadd and we can get events appearing on your page automatically too!
      Newsletters We now have weekly newsletters which give you all the news, events, forum topics, blogs, photos, etc all in one email!  You can subscribe and unsubscribe to these by visiting https://ozclubbers.com.au/settings/?area=newsletters and selecting the newsletters relevant to you from there. Music Wiki
      Our brand new feature is a Music Wiki.  This is a community-driven place to define the various different styles of electronic music.  You can also search through it if you don't know what a particular genre or style is.  This wiki is completely community driven, so we need your input to add and update the information on it.  You can find this under the Music menu, or by jumping to https://ozclubbers.com.au/musicwiki/ New Brisbane Photographer
      We want to take a moment to welcome our new photographer in Brisbane, @harry_jwhite. Harry has a vast array of experience in photography and is keen to help out the scene as much as possible.
      We are still looking for volunteer photographers in other cities as well, so if you are a bit of a socialite, have a decent camera, and like getting free entry to events, get in touch with us at https://ozclubbers.com.au/application
      Forums
      The forums have had a bit of an update.  You can now view the Forums in a "stream" view, which lets you filter all the active threads by forum topic using options on the right hand side of the page.  This gives you the chance to see all the topics that interest you, but without the need to jump back and forth around the site. 
       
       
      Thats about it for now.  Thanks again for being part of our community, and if you like what we are doing, please share the site around!
      Cheers
      Adam Madd

      AND HERE for the first time the Trance Zone.

      A gasper, I tell you. Awe inspiring. Like reaching Mount Aoraki's summit, the unhindered horizon, its sheer scale terrific. Set into a natural amphitheatre the size of a football field, it was collared on three sides by the same set of slick, tangled trees that towered.
      Inside, creating a ring, I counted ten sideways blue funnels - each at least twenty feet high, half again as deep - and each overflowing with enough speakers to be worthy of their own sound systems.
      Ten of these.
      Deep at the back was a raised DJ platform, a blue headstone arch flanked on either side by wall-sized screens, and in the zone itself, clusters of green and blue columns, some taller than the speaker funnels, crowned by closed multi-coloured flowers or stacked pink planets.
      And all above a gleaming green field that looked in severe need of several thousand people jumping on it.
      It was beyond all expectation, and in happy admiration we stood on its edge awhile, boisterously discussing which DJs we championed and where the best speaker crossfire points were - those sound oases of the dance floor - and generally just soaking in the atmosphere,
      until, just as we were about to leave, had just started to turn away, were wet and dripping and intent on hot beverages - coffee? Yeah, yeah, coffee - we were stunned still and silent by a sudden sonic boom that came crashing out of the zone, boiling and crashing, flailing towards us, cacophonous arms, huge, a tsunami of sound, a thunderclap collapsing.
      It roared around us, vibrated through us, shook us up for a good half minute or so.
      It was an impossiblity.
      A dragon. A giant.
      The sound faded, running away and down like an expiring earthquake, as I exclaimed, "What . . . the hell . . . was that?"
      "That, my boy," answered Darius with a grin, "is what they call a sound check for the Trance Zone."
      I’m sure I was slack-jawed as I heard someone mutter, "Fuck me."
      It was probably me.

      BY MID-MORNING we were sick of huddling at camp.
      Everyone was up, Charley had unfolded from the front seat of Darius's station wagon, and we could feel the pull of the Trance Zone, out there, in the rain, its detonation only two hours away. So we made our peace with the weather - said to ourselves, what's a little bit of water after all? - got ourselves organised and ventured forth.
      Almost immediately we gravitated to a camp a few sites down where true house-bus-owning hippies had parked up. Fifteen of them were out in the rain drumming up a storm. We knelt down to watch.
      At the front was a little boy with corkscrewing blond locks, huge smile splitting his face, banging bongos for all he was worth; at the back an elderly lady, sun beaten and leathery, eyes closed and ecstatic, drumming a doumbek also with wild abandon; others of both sexes and all ages running the gamut in-between.
      Water danced on the surface of their drums, flew from their flying hair; their frenetic multi-timbre beat intercut by woodstocks, tambourines, bells; their accompanying shouts emphasising their rhythm.
      I had never seen a hippy drum circle before, but whatever my prejudices - although who was a man wearing silver nail polish to judge? - they quickly melted away. Everything about it appealed to me: the aliveness and joyfulness, the playfulness, the pure-centred presentness.
      In the crisp cold air something ancestral stalked, some deep tribal consciousness uneffaced, and in the grey it called to the faithful, collected them, stitched them together so that by the time we left scores had congregated, knelt, pulsed with appreciation.
      "Fark that was cool," I said to Joseph as we moved away.
      "Fucken A,” he replied, his eyes bright. “You know if only you had enough hair for dreadlocks, Izz, you'd make a good hippy." He ne-ne-ne'ed in the murk.
      We pushed on, made for the slippery clay track that would take us through the trees and across the ridge line and down into where the dance zones, market stalls and hundreds of portaloos lived.
      Large pools of olive water, cold and reeking of loam, now had to be dodged, and when we reached the track, full of the soft sad chatter of rain on leaves, we used mincing steps to keep our feet. A few wobbles and frantic arm waving caused much mirth, but nobody went for a proper skate.
      Safely negotiated, we emerged on the other side of the ridge and into the wide-open spaces of the dance fields . . .

      I AWOKE to a pattering.

      Groggy with pot over I yawned and stretched, touched dim, damp canvas. Telltale droplets beaded its surface. I blinked, worked the cotton in my mouth.
      Tent . . .
      Camping . . .
      The Gathering . . .
      Then a flash of leaping connection - New Year's Eve. It all starts today! I sat up, unpeeled from my sleeping bag. It was cold. I pulled on an extra T-Shirt and jersey. Sam muttered in the corner and slept on. No matter, he would know soon enough. I crawled over him to exit.
      Outside was dislocating, depressingly bleak for the middle of summer.
      A flock of inky Merino crowded the sky. They pressed low over the oily trees in a foggy haze. A cold, steady rain fell, dead straight, hitting the ground in a rat-a-tat-tat of squishy splats. There was no wind, a small blessing, for vapour trails curled with my every exhalation.
      It was all very strange.
      I'd been primed on Gathering stories of magnificent sunshine, of bevies of brown beauties stomping through thick clouds of dust, of heat and light and skin and a beachtime vibe. But today . . . well today felt like a day you should be curled up inside with a good book.
      Muttering a prayer I ducked in under the tarpaulin we'd strung between cars. Joseph, dressed warm in a Swanndri, was already up and about.
      "KEYoraa. I'm making coffee. You want one?"
      "Yeah bro, cheers."
      Rubbing the sleep from my eyes I went to stand beside him. Jacob turned from the cook top, handed me one of two cups. We shuffled to the edge of the blue pastic, the edge of the wet and the gloom, and lit cigarettes.
      "Maybe it will all blow over?" I offered.
      "Maybe but Allan said he's tramped around these parts. When the weather’s like this, he reckons it'll hang around a while. A couple of days he said."
       I looked at Joe.
      "Fark."
      "Could be worse,” Joseph said cheerfully. “You could have brought a hammock like Charley.”
      We laughed and wondered where Charley had gone.
