After 16 years of reaching for the lasers, dancing on podiums, everything from hardcore to DnB to RnB in the pod, warm water taps and crammed cuddles in the furry egg, Family finally ended its reign as one of Brisbane’s prolific clubs and has been reincarnated as Ei8ht. Having spent so much time dancing and photographing there it wasn’t an easy task to trawl through the mountain of photo archives… so I didn’t :p Instead, just cherry picking a handful of the biggest most memorable events that have photographic evidence.

2003 – DJ Craze
2004 – UNKLE
2006 – Bass Australia
2007 – Gatecrasher
2008 – 7th Birthday w/ Nick Skitz
2009 – Ferry Corsten and Giuseppe Ottaviani
2009 – Trance Nation w/ TyDi

Farewell Family, gone but not forgotten! …well except on those nights where we can’t remember what happened.

Big Sound engulfed the valley once again and as always delivered everything from RnB and soul to indie rock and metal. With such a huge lineup over the three days its impossible to catch everyone but we managed to get to OKbadlands, Maribelle, Tia Gostelow and The Beautiful Monument.
