REDDIT POST: Really bummed that big EDM acts don't ever come to this city.

This thread makes some interesting comments. Hopefully, TriangleBeats can be part of the solution. I've got to collect my thoughts and get something out today so that everyone knows what's happening to the site.

Big acts now a days are costing 10k+ for a two hour set. I don't see large promotion groups out there working with venues like some other cities. I also do not seeing a huge electronic following in Raleigh that would even sell out a venue to support a big name. I remember I saw Kill The Noise and Treasure Fingers played in Five Star and there wasn't even a big showing, lol. 5 Star is a Chinese Restaurant. Names like that even sell out venues in NYC.

With that being said a producer named "Kastra" pretty talented dude from NJ will be at Alchemy this Friday. He is backed up by Ultra, Brooklyn Fire, Hussle Recordings, One Love, Vicious Recordings and Liftoff Recordings.

... yet 2 days before the event, they don't have anything on their Facebook talking about it - other than an obscure Events entry. And the Web site special events page is broken - at least on my browsers. Is that the way to build? Weirdness.

Also, we need more techno. Everyone's playing the same shit.

Ok, I'll stop now.

Techno Amen! Just downloaded a bunch of Joey Beltram tracks today and feeling good.

Saw a really big "EDM" act last night Laidback Luke, proud to say he even played about 25mins of techno in his set. In between some Jungle Terror and Biggy Smalls. Some of these "superstar" DJs to scared to change things up now a days.
