Ultra's ASOT lineup is more EDM than ever. Even Above and Beyond's thing (gotta admit that party does sound like it could be fun, if you can get past some of the cheesy tracks that A&B are bound to play) has people like 16BL whom are completely house and zero trance.
I think A&B put out a good lineup for that party, its a good mix with guys like 16BL and Lane 8 from the AnjunaDeep sector. I agree with your statement in thinking it could/will be pretty fun, but I really want to see that Paradise lineup before i decide anything.

Shit, yet another monkey wrench in for Thursday.
3/26 - SPACE EL ROW IBIZA presents DEEP DISH + PACO OSUNA (Terrace)
I'm doing 5 events and spent $150 give or take a few bucks for comparison's sake. Yeah it's all access but Trade, Story, Treehouse, Steam, Cafeina, SLS, etc are not part of the "all-access."
They used to include open bar with the F-U bands. NOW that is a good deal! The alcohol is what gets you. They figure you're gonna be using the shit out of the band (to get what you think is value for the $600 you spent on it) so you're bouncing around to these venues day and night for 5 straight days. That's 5 days of non-stop ordering drinks and shit from the bar. The $600 turns into $2600 real fast! These club operators know what the fuck they're doing when it comes to making money. Hook them with a "value-priced" F-U band and they're gonna be spending all their disposable WMC income on liquor at clubs/hotels that we own or have business dealings with.
Just the thought alone makes me feel like I'm in the middle of the worst post-WMC hangover mankind has ever known.

3 days is even too much for me. By Sunday im usually on another planet after lack of sleep, binge drinking, and other unhealthy habits

yeah those were the days with the open bar.
i still think $600 isn't bad for no-wait entry into Space and the Raleigh/Surfcomber parties.... but yeah no comparison to the old open bar bracelets.
