Reported by HarderFaster
Submitted 15-03-17 13:11
It’s that time again and the results are in after HarderFaster asked you to look back and tell us who, what, when and where made the grade in 2016, whether that be for good or bad reasons
At your suggestion, we added a new poll category – Jaw Drop Thread – and the winner won’t come as any surprise.
Our free-text voting system means you can enter whatever you want and we always look forward to your wit and wisdom. In keeping with tradition, we were delighted to see Josie making a comeback for best festival.
As we’ve said in the past, the diverse votes continue to reveal your eclectic tastes so we’ll continue to award top honours to those who were clearly in the lead and honourable mentions to those who were near the top or where there are no clear winners.
HarderFaster Club Night of the Year 2016
Which was the best overall event of the year?
Winner: Zoology 15th Birthday
Zoology 15th Birthday was the clear winner for as your club night of 2016, and the writer can vouch for this.
Honourable mentions go to Lost Dawn, winners in 2014, and newcomer HDM.
HarderFaster After Party of the Year 2016
If the night is just not enough then this is where you'll be, and 2016 continues the trend - you’d rather be at a crack-on than a formal event when it comes to afters so we’re not going to award a winner in this category.
Honourable mention goes to Trance Sanctuary After Party who polled most votes of any formal after party.
HarderFaster Day Party of the Year 2016
Don't fancy a late night? This is the daytime party where it's all happening.
Joint Winners: Alumni and Lost Dawn
Alumni made a strong comeback in 2016, tying with our previous winner Lost Dawn.
HarderFaster New Party of the Year 2016
Joint Winners: HDM and TranceLUCID
It was neck and neck for these 2 newcomers, too hard to call for top spot so we’re awarding Joint Winners. Props to the jokers who voted for Zoology's "comeback".
HarderFaster Festival of the Year 2016
What was your favourite festival of 2016?
Winner: Chilled in a Field
Chilled in a Field was the clear winner, unsurprising with several of HarderFaster’s favourite promotions contributing over the weekend.
HarderFaster Venue of the Year 2016
What was your favourite clubbing venue in 2016?
Winner: Club 414.
Club 414 lifts the cup again, reflecting the massive support from far and wide after being threatened with closure by property developers.
HarderFaster New Venue of the Year 2016
What was your favourite new venue in 2016?
Whilst not strictly new, Tobacco Dock was the clear winner and has established itself as a venue of choice.
Choons 'n Labels
The trend continues with votes being divided in these categories so we’ll continue to award prizes where there’s a clear winner, and mentions to the cream of the crop.
HarderFaster Tune of the Year 2016
Everyone seemed to have their own favourite in 2016 so no clear winners but Mind Shift - Luke Warner and Latex Zebra receives an honourable mention.
Surprisingly there were no votes for BK – Revolution or Breather – Come On this year.
HarderFaster Remix of the Year 2016
Your pick of the tunes revamped and refreshed this year?
Another diverse vote with no clear winners.

Which album was the best of the year?
Without any consensus as to your stand out album of 2016 we can’t give any awards, but Tangled Audio Best of 2016 was very popular.
Another case of everyone having their own favourite, although continuing a theme we’re awarding Luke Warner an Honourable Mention after polling highly in our New Producer, Producer and Remixer categories.
