Inside Moves @ S13

I've been lucky to work with the folks at Inside Moves, who host DJ nights or dance music events.. whatever the correct term, it's always a good old fashioned rave.

Their latest event was taking place at a new venue in Belfast; S13. It was formally a hardware superstore, within enough square footage to house a small city. It is the new location for the crew of T13, who formally held events in the docks area of Belfast, most notably the hugely popular AVA Festival.

The venue has a ridiculously huge main hall, but also features smaller rooms which allowed Inside Moves to host this particular night, as filling that main hall would probably require thousands of people!

The room that hosted the DJ's held a couple hundred, so it was perfect to keep the atmosphere confined which is what you need for a sweaty and energetic crowd. The lighting was supplied by Guerilla Shout, who alway go above and beyond your average lighting setup, which I love, because it makes a good DJ set look so much better visually.

Kornél Kovács was the headline act, he played a good set, but what peaked my attention were some 2000's classic including Mylo. The crowd were lively as ever, with t-shirts getting hurled off and plenty of people up on others shoulders which allowed me to shoot some decent silhouettes when I moved into the crowd, as my flash was setup behind the DJ.

It's the first event I'd witnessed at the new S13 venue, but it's good to see a new location for Belfast to host new and diverse events. The old T13 site had some great nights and I got some great photos, but the new location is bigger and better in every sense.
