Review of FF16 ( FEAR FEST )
Would you recommended: Yes
ABSOLOUTE disgrace!!! after getting attacked in a corridoor and defending ourselves, i was then lifted and dragged by around 7 bouncers to the main entrance to then be lifted by my hair by one of the male bouncers, i am covered in bruises my forehead is swollen and my lip is bust... and they never even stopped to ask what happened or if we were ok. ill be taking legal action.
and the music was just as rubbish! absoloute dive i wouldnt go back if someone payed me.
Would you recommended: No
Banging night !!
Wasnt allowed in so ticket went to waste
Wouldn't that recommend to anyone because of not being aloud in to the stages because it was full!
Yet again another event at magna that is way over hyped. Although was fairly well managed. Never had to que for a drink. 8000 people far from it. I don't think we'll be attending next year. I do think I need to stop wasting my money on events there as they make a big deal over them and always end up been a let down.
One of the best Halloween night outs I've been on
Brilliant night, security managed the event very well, we're friendly and non threatening. Great size venue, prices were good, could do with more drink choices but quick, prompt service.
wristbands to pay made getting a drink easier but was a rip off in terms of cost to add money to them and then drinks not been priced so you could use all the money that was on your card
FF16 was an amazing night with amazing atmosphere... something needs to be done about the toilets though. They were disgusting n the cues were ridiculous... overall though had the best night out in ages.
Really love this event, great atmosphere and music and I thought the new wristbands were a great idea, faster and more convenient. The only complaint I have is there is no food available.
Brill halloween at magna defo going again nxt year
the night was amazing, i have been FF twice and SF once and i love it! i just can't believe how unorganised the coaches are, our coach to leeds came and picked us up half an hour late. then didnt have a clue where he was going we had to tell him it was magma! then at 4 we left and waited where we got dropped off as we was getting picked up at half 4 and the coach wasn't there, we ended up waiting for an hour till half 5 and then had to get a taxi home which cost 60 i am absolutely fuming and i think the organisation is appalling!

Of the chain!!! Couldn't asked for a better venue! Loved the artists!
Don't get me wrong these events are like no other however I think there really needs to be a cap on the amount of tickets you release for these events from 6 to around 11:30 - 12.00 the event was amazing could get round the 3 arenas freely space at the bars and the atmospher was really good however after that the venue was grossly over filled could not move at all which lead to a lot of pushing shoving and ultimately a Real Change in the mood of the whole venue people turned away from the main stage due to capacity issues at 40 pound a ticket it's a joke that you stop people seeing the head lining acts not sure wether it's the music getting more popular but I attended them all year 2014/2015 and the attendees were a lot nicer crowd at this particular event was completely different to what I was used to but you can't control who buys a ticket.
Was my third time going I love the place!!but I ordered a coach ticket first of all the coach was late picking us up,didn't even check tickets and didn't even know where he was taking us???anyone could of got on the coach.. then afterwards I was on time waiting outside for the coach walking up and down checking different coaches me and my friend could not find the Leeds one so don't know if it didn't turn up or left but I've never known something so unorganised in my life??? This nearly had put me off not coming again but I do have a good time next time organise a coach car park with signs directing you and signs of your coach!!and tell the drivers before so they actually know where there dropping us off. I spent 50 pound getting home it's absolutely ridiculous I couldn't got a hotel with that price why do you think I got a return coach ticket?? I'd like further action/compensation for this.
Fear Fest was on my birthday and you smashed it. Had a fantastic time, maybe the reduce the drink prices ever so slightly.
Music was banging!
Please limit the tickets it took the piss, also loads of under ages got in, that is illegal, also stop letting *****es push in the lines rather than focusing all ur sercurity on drugs (that are gonna be taken anyway despite all their efforts) but other than that *****ing sick night out 🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘 996;

Absolutly rubbish. Sold way too many tickets couldnt even move it was that rammed. Queing for the smoking area? Ridiculous! especially for all that you pay for it!
Ellie Marie Renshaw
Great night too many people for the venue though!
Would you recommended: ?
Decent music, wasn't aloud my money back that I didn't spend on my wristband because they were closing even though people were still queuing to get it back, they sent me away and said to message them on facebook but there is nowhere to do so
Was amazing!!! Best night ever see you next year FF17 xo
Amazing night with all Great performances, Drinks weren't too expensive and all in all a great time
Had a mint night would definitely go again that's why I'm booking for New Year's Eve!!
Excellent event will definitely be coming again bring on spring fest 🎵🎶🔥
10/10 just sort the busses out, sick night tho
Absolutely amazing!! Best Halloween I've experienced! Wired events are so so good!
Wicked night loved every minute of it! Will defiantly be going again!
Had the best time. Literally only downer was they only had blue vks and not the others colours.
Was ok, wasn't as busy as I would of thought
Great atmosphere and great musice. Venue a little to big, lost all my friends. :(
Left after a hour couldn't get a drink probably 1000 to many people in there there couldn't move . Music was probably sound just too crammed in

I defo rate fear fest 10 had the best time of my life litulary .. Was amazing and defo going next year love love loved it thank you 💋
IT WAS AMAZING!
An amazing night which was good value for money and easy to get to. Would defiantly recommed if you like live dance music. I also thought the drinks band was an excellent idea no more loosing money !!! Will be going next year
Such a good night, everyone was very helpful and friendly, amazing atmosphere definitely going next year
I've been to Fear Fest and Spring Fest previously. Always happy with the night overall and never seems to disappoint when am there, would definitely recommend to anyone to go at least the once just to experience it!
It is the best night out I have had in a long time!! best music going, full non stop party....
Honestly the best night of my life!! The music was great and I liked that there were rides to go on and a place to get food available. Drinks prices were steep but then this is to be expected obviously. Thanks for the sick night
Was good but didn't like the one way system
The venue was one of the best I've been to but the line up could of been better I found at the end of the night it mainly turned in to drum and base even though the clocks have turned back I still would of thought they would keep it on till 5
Good night out, could of done with a slightly bigger venue or less of a turn out as was quite rammed with people. Music was good and attractions were decent
it was a really good event but drinks were too expensive
Oversold, over crowded and took me 15 mins to queue up for a bottle of water when I was feeling blah. Full of stupid girls smuggling a gram of cocaine in a condom up their **** (and trust me, this is all I heard in the queue to the bathroom). Boyfriend said no cubicles in the men's were free... wonder why. Maybe the security guards and drugs dogs were feeling a little bit off that night. Regardless, the music was ace and generally the event rooms and spaces were full of people having a good time. Just the select few that spoil it, and it really was spoilt. Also, we got told the main stage was full when we tried to get in to see Tom Zanetti. We just pushed past a security guard (sorry) but we wanted what we paid for and the main stage being "full" was a poor excuse. At least when we were in, there was no getting thrown out which was great. Ended up leaving just before Chase and Status' set as there were people pushing and shoving each other which is fine but not to the extent there were. Overall and for next year (though I won't be going) there needs to be stricter selling for the tickets to stop so much over crowding, and believe me when I say people will smuggle drugs in anyway they can. It's these people that ruin the atmosphere.
Music and atmosphere was good but the venue was confusing and the one way system made it too difficult to get out in crowds.

10000% would recommend
Great night good music, could have maybe been a few more big names.
10 out of 10 Brilliant event, a few fights but oh well.
Elliott Jordan Dudley
Absolutely amazing night, the best Event I've ever been to. The music was top notch, same goes for the atmosphere! The prices of drinks was as expected. The staff went above and beyond to help us find places within the venue. Thanks for such a memorable night FF!
Such an amazing night, definitely do it again!
Would go again
Really good but not a wide enough drink selection
By far the best music event ive been to
BEST FESTIVAL IVE BEEN TO SO FAR!
My first time at fear fest and I can honestly say I'd do it all over tomorrow! Absolutely amazing atmosphere and the drinks prices were reasonable so I was happy to pay the price, incredible.
loved the event however with the clocks changing there should have been more information about the times of the coaches
Really good night
Getting into the even could have been organised a lot better, as we was stood outside the complex for about half an hour (with security not really telling us anything).
The event inside was brilliant, no messing around at the bar etc, a lot of space to get out of the hustle and bustle.
The only bad thing for me was getting assaulted in the main room. Me and my friend was just stood next to the bar, near the stage. When we got 'jumped' by a group of lads for no apparent reason, this resulted with me having to go to the First Aid treatment area where I was given stitches to my eye.
I currently have one black eye, and a broken nose.. but apart from that point! It was a good night.
Really friendly staff, good night
Such a good night!!
Great venue with great acts, security and more. HOWEVER: the clocks went back on the night of FF16 and this meant that the set times along with coach pick up times were confused with what they would have been had the clocks not gone back. I think that this was very, very poor due to the fact that the team made no efforts to notify people of this. My coach was said to be picking us up at 4.30, however it ended up being 3.30. The coach was just about full on the way there and nearly empty on the way back. I find this appalling due to the fact that the venue was in the middle of nowhere and no effort was made to notify people of this. The people who got stranded 100% deserve a refund or at very least an apology.
