© GatecrasherWhat was once a clubbing meca with a reputation every other club night could only wish for is now just a debt ridden shadow of its former self run by a team of incompetent, untrustworthy and skint business folk sailing a sinking ship. The step back to Ibiza may well be the final nail in the coffin...

There was a very interesting article up on Beatsmedia today collecting together an archive of just what has been going off at Gatecrasher over the past two years. The Gatecrasher brand is not what it was back when the Sheffield venue was selling out week after week and every DJ felt a special atmosphere when they stepped behind the decks to hundreds of passionate clubbers. There was time when an new gatecrasher album meant something and I’m sure every trance fan brought up in the 90’s will have a fair few of their early albums in the CD collection.

When I heard the Ibiza project earlier this year I had a feeling things may well be looking up for the brand, especially with the list of names they were announcing to play at the club over the summer. It’s a just a shame the names they announced didn’t have a clue they were playing at the event! If you have had the chance to browse the social media pages you will find some very unhappy campers let down by the lack of advertised talent and having to pay 25 euro for two beers. Its not just the clubbers that are pissed off, it’s the staff, artists, booking agents and fans like me who have lost all respect for this once iconic brand.

Its worth having a read of the article over on Beatsmedia just to get a time log of the massive amounts of debt Gatecrasher has racked up over the past few years, don’t forget they entered administration back in August 2013 owing 2 million pounds and closing their Leeds venue.

Several people who we will keep anonymous have contacted Beatsmedia to share their stories. The stories took a common tone “I am owed [large amount of money], I still haven’t been paid“, before starting to go in to more detail. Our sources are not doing it just for themselves but have become the voice of several others who are afraid to speak up - by doing so they have been slapped with defamations, open threats, and even legal action.

I don’t know who the owner of Gatecrasher is these days but he’s going to need more than just the change in his piggy bank to pay what he owes to people. If you have followed their YouTube channel you catch watch a video blog of the Gatecrasher team’s trip to Ibiza for the opening night of this season.

:: Gatecrasher head to Ibiza for opening night!

It’s safe to say that there has not been a follow to that blog, which is not surprising if you’ve read all the unrest about the Ibiza project. Where did all the money go? Who is behind this shambles of a brand trying to live on its former reputation? Just how much was the insurance premium on the Sheffield club? There are just a few questions to think about.

Maybe the brand will get back to where it once was, who knows, but quite frankly who cares when you have the likes of OTR (Off The Rails) and The Digital Society running amazing club nights which will only get nigger and better over the next few years.
