“If the cops wouldn't have shut us down we would have an amazing night ... Officially fuck the police ... Ohh sorry fire marshal. Fuck,” he added.

But hard work! They shut me down 5.15 . Over capacity so its a good thing.. It was rammed.”

Additional requirements promoters will be expected to introduce include ‘cool-off’ breaks during the shows, and regular public service announcements warning about the dangers of ecstasy and other drugs, the Board revealed.
