Pretty lights, thumping music, smiling faces, from the moment I walked into Planet Angel for the first time I felt an overwhelming sense of belonging.
It was my 18th birthday and my first Planet Angel. Following in the footsteps of my brother, a Hardcore Planeteer and crew member, I decided that from the get-go I wanted to volunteer to host at Planet Angel.
Over the past few years I’ve seen the crew blossom and group into a family. My Planet Angel family but what really makes the event for me, what keeps me coming back, putting in my time behind the scenes and during the party, is the sheer enjoyment on everyone’s faces from the moment they arrive.
There’s something magical about Planet Angel. When I arrive before doors open and the lights go down we see the venue transformed into our own space. Our UV art covers the walls and hangs from the ceilings, and you know that every piece has been hand-made with love from our very own (extremely talented) crew. The trademark writing wall is a blank canvas, ready to be covered in the thoughts and words of those who walk through our doors. At the end of the night, just take a moment to read it, I guarantee it will bring a smile to your face.
Before a party, it’s always a mad rush. From our technicians to riggers, crew to performers, everyone gets the venue ready by creating the atmosphere. For the most part crew work through the evening to bring you an event that will exceed your expectations. Why do I keep coming back? Well apart from getting to work with some of the best people I have EVER worked with, for me, honestly, it’s getting to meet so many great people. I have met some of my best friends through Planet Angel, people who have brightened my life up immensely. From the people I have spoken to I have gained an incredible amount of confidence and I spend the whole night smiling even when I’m working hard.
I’m by no means the longest-standing crew member but in my few short years being on the hosting team I’ve seen the party evolve. This upcoming event on Nov 10th 2017, signifies, not only, our 18th Birthday Party, but also the next stage in our journey. When I first joined, I never thought Planet Angel would be getting a mini-roller disco, bouncy castle and ball pit, though, it is a birthday party after all!
This couldn’t be possible without our dedicated crew who put in hours of their own time to bring you an event that is out-of-this-world and we are extremely lucky to have such lovely people join us time and time again to enjoy Planet Angel with us.
Now more than ever, we are keen to show our Hardcore Planeteers and Planet Angel Virgins what we are all about and I just know this party will blow you away!
