Szentek: The highlight of the St Andrews Party Scene

Sam reviews St Andrews’ waviest night out.

Following their fiery opening event, the Szentek team had a lot to live up to in their flag-ship fest. Their warmer offered a glimpse of the cacophony to come yet we were all eager to see whether Szentek would pull of their main event for another year running.

Listed on the Facebook page as a ‘night of moving and grooving in a barn by the sea, nestled in the bonnie Kingdom of Fife’, this seemed as accurate, although modest, description as any.  Part of the magic of Szentek is, of course, the feeling of complete incongruity, moving from the quiet streets of St Andrews, through country lanes to a ‘barn’, in the middle of a field. Yet you step in, and the world is transformed.

From the very outset you are hit by the groovy waves of the outdoor djs, Copper Coil, Wax Collective and Szentek residents, whom not even the intermittent rain could put off. Already guests were strutting their funky stuff on the dance floor, or else preparing for a night of heavy night of partying by fuelling up on the comfort food vendors outside.

A convenient cloakroom allowed guests to strip off their hot St Andrew’s winter layers to reveal various forms of garish and frequently less-than-modest garments, finally ready for the sweaty interior of the event.

Inside Kinkell lay exactly what was promised; an artistic homage to the underground bars and raves of Budapest, replete with trippy art-work and coloured rages for decoration, it was a feast for the eyes as well as the ears.

The main stage kicked off early and strong with Max Dupa b2b Neb, with Too This for That and Eclair Fifi until twelve, an awesome opener preceding Optimo, who rocked the floor from 00:00 till 02:00. From 11:00 onwards, there was never a time that the main stage wasn’t full of ardent dancers in a haze of sweat and music.

Across St Andrews’s favourite party venue lay the heavier D&B room, a crowded, claustrophobic box of sensation in which the rippling sound waves of the bass could be felt from metres away from the speakers. This room garnered many a fan amongst the party-goers, most splitting their time between the two, or else dipping out for a well-earned breath of fresh air.

When it was time for a sit-down, the organisers provided a room complete with sofas, giant cushions, and an array of vibrant digital artwork and wavy cinematic sequences that allowed the dancers to rest their weary feet whilst enjoying their surroundings, or a crepe from the indoor crepe bar.

The night was well organised and well stocked, genuinely providing, in my opinion, far more than the money’s worth of the ticket. St Andrews is often deplored for its lack of diverse events; Szentek proves year after year that the university has more to offer than black-tie events, and can go toe to toe with some of the best raves in university culture.

  11. Combined Newsletters For a free-to-play alternative, try Simply Chess. It’s not nearly as slick as Chess Ultra, and it crashed on me pretty quickly, but hey, it’s free. It supports online play with a separate account, and comes with a good computer opponent via the Stockfish engine (see the section below for an explanation on that). Regardless of online’s performance, Mario Tennis Aces is the best entry in the series since the GameCube era. The tried-and-true gameplay has a variety of legitimately intriguing additions and changes even if it stumbles a little as the challenge increases. And while the single-player content is on the lighter side, that’s not necessarily a terrible thing as it’s fun in its brevity. If you’re not interested in playing multiplayer, this could be hard to recommend, but if you’re ready to take to the courts locally or online, Mario Tennis Aces is assuredly an ace. Sorry – I had to.

Video games aren’t cheap – especially the hottest AAA titles – and while there are plenty of great indie titles available at reasonable prices, if cash is tight then there’s a decent assortment of free games to be had. Nowadays, few know the game Solitaire as it was originally played: with paper playing cards.

Once you have used up the no deposit bonus, you can make a deposit and claim their welcome bonus as well!

There’s also IGT, which provides much of the fun and entertainment at LeoVegas, with titles such as TreasureBox, a multi-level progressive jackpot with an adventurous theme that Indian players have really taken to.

  20. Customers can borrow $100 to $35,000 repaid over 3 to 24 months. The amount you can borrow will depend on your income, credit rating and current debt outstanding. This includes payday loans, personal and short term loans. Most people apply for an emergency loan in their time of need. An emergency loan means you get the money as quickly as possible so you can handle what’s happening. Much like any other loan product, an emergency loan has certain terms and conditions to follow, including interest rates and loan length. However, because personal loans for bad credit often come with extremely high interest rates and fees, the total cost of the loan rarely merits unnecessary purchases. As such, you may want to consider other options before you use a personal loan to purchase a car, remodel your home, or go on vacation.
