Sherdley Park, St Helens A review from inside the tent
11 hours of dance, showcasing the best of house and trance, with a slice of cheesy pop.
Starting in 2014, the festival has gone from strength to strength year on year, serving up a big a slice of rave which the North West loves so much. It's fair to say that this year the festival had some teething problems mostly due to their WiFi connection going down before opening. However, as I didn't suffer any of the inconvenience caused by long queues I can only review the experience I saw by all in the tents.
Consisting of six arena and a VIP tent, Reminisce delivers a 11 hour non stop party, no pause, no break, wall to wall dance tracks served up by a brilliant selection of DJ's keeping all participants moving all day and night. For the early arrivers, they enjoyed the additional space to throw some shapes with their mates. As the crowds grew, the tents started bouncing, track after track none stop energy flowing across all the arena, allowing revellers to release the frustrations and energy stored from the past 18 months on the grass formed dance floor. From full on raving to singalong with mates, Reminisce delivered a great experience too many.
The Fezzy Pop Arena catered the likes of 5ive, Atomic Kitten, East 17, S Club, Fatman Scoop, and more pop delights throughout the day. Nick the Lunatic absolutely delivered, keeping the revellers entertained throughout his sets, from mass singalongs to the largest conga St Helens has seen, and a pinch of YMCA, Nick made sure anyone who visited Fezzy Pop had a day to remember. Top class from start to finish.
Reminisce, BounceBack, Lovehouse, and Quadrant in the Park arenas delivered a perfect blend of DJ and live acts throughout the day, showcasing the likes of Rozalla, Livin' Joy, N-Trance, Basshunter, Vengaboys, Angie Brown, Dave Pearce, Seb Fontaine, Tall Paul, and many more. These arenas burst with energy, DJs and acts hammering out crowd pleaser after crowd pleaser, a full on hedonist sweat fest bringing back the very best of clubs nights.
I first visited Reminisce in 2019 and it was a pleasure to see that the energy within the arenas was just the same, and as i remembered from two years previous.
Hopefully those who didn't have the best experience due to the issues on site, will give this festival another chance, and I hope the team involved are putting maximum effort into resolving those issues for 2022. It's an absolute blast from the past event, and a true let it all out gathering for all to enjoy.
