Review of HotMess vs Orderly Conduct! Lockdown Halloween Special The Purge

Overall rating: 2.5 Verified review

I attended the Halloween event at Deansgate Locks on Thursday 31st October. Myself and four friends paid 22.50 to get into the event which was Revolution entry with access to Ark and Popworld. We were really looking forward to it.

We arrived at 10:30 as it said “last entry at 11pm” on the ticket and we saw that the queue was snaking round to a club two doors down. We explained we had paid for the tickets and were directed by a man who sent us to the back of the queue. Immediately behind us were a couple who explained they had not even bought tickets.

I tried to explain to a bouncer that we had paid a lot of money for these tickets and we just wanted to gauge how long it would take. He told me to “get back in the queue and wait”. We stood outside for two hours before we got let into the club and the people behind us, who didn’t pay for tickets, got let in at the same time.

Between us, we spent over 100 on tickets alone. The way we were spoken to, by Revolution staff, was absolutely appalling. I understand it was a stressful time with 3000+ people but the way the event was managed was completely unacceptable. Our 22.50 tickets held absolutely no value against others who walked in off the street. Any follow up you can give me on this would be greatly appreciated.

No point in purchasing tickets online, you still have to join the extremely long queue with non ticket holders

Paid 22.50 to stand in the pouring rain for 2 hours despite arriving at 10.30pm (final entry supposedly 11pm). People behind us in the queue paid for tickets online as we were stood in it for 7 (despite the event supposedly being sold out online). People with no ticket at all got in faster. Bouncers were extremely rude and aggressive.

The whole concept of splitting it between two bars is great, but really didn’t work. It’s hard to manoeuvre between the clubs, and the staff started shutting off doorways without any real explanation. The music was good though.
