View Full Version : Fag Tag Has Landed
14th April 2008, 02:39 PM
I was interested in hearing from people who went to the first Fag Tag in Melbourne last night.
What did you think? Did you like the venue? The crowd? The music? Will you go the next one?

Yeah I went along for a bit. I thought the venue was alright, although maybe could've been a bit bigger? The outdoor space was really good, but it did fill up. Had quite a good feel about it.
Crowd seemed a good mix to me, music seemed alright too. Will definitely go to the next one, and will be curious to find out where it'll be!

Cheers to everyone who came along, was loads of fun.
We actually didn't expect that many people to turn up for the first one, so the venue only held 300. As a promoter, I hate hate hate queues. No one wants to queue to get into Sunday arvo drinks, so we're upsizing the venue capacity for the next Fag Tag.

Make sure you on the FT mailing list at www.fagtag.com.au and we'll let you know where and when the next one will be on. We've got some pretty wicked venues planned...

Signed up. Don't want to miss out on the next one for certain.

Oh gosh, it looks like every has-been in Melbourne has 'been there'! Lol.
Purlease. I would rather support a Melbourne-run and operated venture.
Please. Send them back to where they belong. They are only, afterall, CASHING IN on our scene.

I have to disagree with justgowithit and her parochial attitude. Apparently it's not enough hat we have to be segregated from the heterosexual community we now have to separate ourselves into which city we are from. I have nothing against the Melb run and operated venues, but they don't offer anything different. I'm interested to know which ones you go to though?
It's true that I don't need to go Fag Tag to go to a straight venue; I had been to Tryst before, but it was fun. From all accounts from friends that went that was their opinion too. Luckily for the organisers most complaints were about the venue and more specifically the queue for the toilets, but the nature of the party means it won't be the same venue again.
As far as the crowd went. It was a good mix of people whose idea of going out is to go clubbing all night and those that prefer a quieter night with a few drinks.
My opinion is that the Melbourne parties and clubs are stale, not much changes. So for a breath of fresh air I welcome Fag Tag. Particularly when Trough is now over and Witness is no more.
My only complaint would be that the selection of DJs was not inspired. They are the same ones that have been playing at all the Raw Hide Entertainment parties. Someone new playing a different style of music would have been great. Maybe next time.

Hey desousa - thanks your your comments mate, the aim with the DJs is to really change it up every time to suit the venue.
We particularly love pushing new, up and coming DJs, you got any good suggestions for who we should check out?

The only problem with Fagtag was that it took so long to start in Melbourne!! Going to the same venues constantly is boring. Congratulations Fagtag on your first successful event which certainly attracted a great diverse group of people.

I did intend to get to this, but a massive Saturday nigh witnessing SOS weave their magic meant I didn't really feel up for it!
Definitely heading to the next one!

Anyone doing round 2?
8th May 2008, 08:09 PM
I'm definitely coming along to the 2nd round of fag tag... its an interesting venue this time too, a nice little tucked-away bar right up the 'Paris' end of town.

If it wasn't mother's day!
I might be back in time to hit it later on in the evening.
