Welcome to the Warehouse was sick
The people of Cardiff got their dose of Splott Sauce
It is no secret that a tension exists between the people of Cardiff and the city’s students. In fact, you could probably substitute ‘Wales’ in for ‘Cardiff’ in that sentence, and it would still be true.
On Saturday in Splott Warehouse that tension was washed away in a demographic-crossing tsunami, as 5,000 people made peace based out of a mutual affection for getting tanked up on the back of government handouts.
There’s something quite endearing about watching that many people lavish themselves in the fruits of the ol’ electric soup, all under one roof.
Below are some choice snaps of the day’s frivolities, self-censored in a futile attempt to avoid jeopardising anyone’s employability thanks to an errant set of pupils.
Charlie Wedd, of Eton Messy notoriety, said: “It’s different to [Manchester Warehouse Project], but in a good way… it is much more raw.”
It would be unfair to not mention the house MC, who did a sterling job. Mini-series below.
Dimension, who prefers to be called Rob, said: “It is really great to see so many people out dancing to Drum and Bass in Cardiff.”
“Its a great scene, a great young audience who know their music – a group of people who really like to fucking party.”
And finally if you, like I, got a little too full on Jersey lightning and come Sunday morning couldn’t lie down without holding onto something, here is a video of Welcome to the Jungle at Splott Warehouse’s final moments – at least up until a crowd surfer hits me in the face.
