AFTER PARTY: 2 Days of Freedom @ A'Famosa Resort, Melaka (29/5/2009)

The Story Begins...

*Correction as on June 10th 2009*
A little bird told me something about the Friday Freedom, "Markus played a 2 hour set from 9-11pm...ferry at 11 and there was more than 150 peeps la"

Sorry for the wrong info... I guess my informer had trouble with his maths! hahaha

2 Days of Freedom was a blast with improved stage set up, activities and parking space (duh!)
I did not attend for both nights because I had to attend another event but let me enlighten you on what went down at the first night of 2 Days of Freedom.

The stage production looks good! I love the Expression Stage because it look like the Daft Punk's Alive 2007 Tour staging. When we got there, DJ Kurt of Clash the Disko Kids spun there with numbers of cool electro tunes. If you were not in a good state of mind, his set can spin you around. Unfortunately, less than ten souls were seen at the section.

We spotted few cool activities as we walked towards the Freedom Stage (the main arena). The Ferris Wheel ride located at the opposite of Expression Stage can let the patrons to enjoy the bird's eye view of the whole arena. The swing ride or also known as Sky Rider was kinda cool too. Not a good choice if you're drunk, though! Other signature Freedom activities such as Freedom Trampoline, Freedom Cheer and Freedom Tattoo can be found scattered around the arena too.
You can also find the Blue Man, MetalRob and also BlueEye harrassing people to take photos with them! Hahahah!

The Freedom Stage is the main attraction for most party animals that night with big acts headlining the night, Markus Schulz and Ferry Corsten.

As what I was told by a friend, not many people were there when Markus Schulz spun because it was too early. Well, the crowd started to fill the arena as Ferry Corsten began to play. His appearance in this installment of 2 Days of Freedom is very special to everyone because Malaysia is the first location for his Twice in a Blue Moon: The Experience tour. His first ever album tour in Malaysia!

Betsie Larkin joined him as the guest vocal. The last time we had guest vocal was JES during Tiesto's PitParty: In Search of Sunrise 5 Tour back in 2006.

I was amazed by Betsie's vocal on Made of Love. It sounded exactly like in the album. I don't think she was lip-synching because I was there at the front row! hahah!

Ferry Corsten played lots of his famous singles in his 4 hours set and it includes almost all tracks from the Twice in a Blue Moon album. It was a very euphoric moment when he played We Belong. The track was so good and made some of the crowd singing along with the lyrics looping on the screen. Fire and The Race were also played in his set.

The party had to end by 2am. I don't know why...

Above all else, Scenique has prove to us in organizing big raves like 2 Days of Freedom and Freedom Elite. I'm looking forward for more Freedom events.

Even though it ended early, it did not disappoint me.

Thanks to Fuzz, Dhaima, Edmund and Khoo for letting me join you guys :)

Now watch the live performance of Betsie Larkin with Ferry Corsten.

The End
