This has been posted in the forum for a while, but thought it worth putting here for those of you who aren't members. The Gathering was a special outdoor New Years Eve festival held on the amazing Canaan Downs site for about 7 years. It's now gone, but its spirit lives on in almost every pocket of dance music culture in New Zealand. For those of you that were there or that missed out, make sure you check the documentary of the 97/98 Gathering at the gathering archives.
