I think this is a great move. FWD has been a unique night and a Sunday night crowd & vibes is 100% progressing in the right direction.

And for the small element whingeing...I used to come from MANCHESTER at every opportunity when it was on a thursday because I loved it so, and got mates who did the same for Co-op on Sundays. So if you're not bothered enough to get there on a Sunday, don't even complain about it!! Just go to something else dubstep on a Fri/Sat - at least there's loads of options nowadays and you can!!

I have mixed feelings about the move!

Cons:
1. You were never stuck for something to do on a Friday night
2. My mates won't come to FWD on a sunday night if they can't get back or rinsed out from friday / saturday night
3. Travel links are always worse on Sunday nights

Pros
1. Gives them a chance to experiment
2. Likely to be full of more music lovers
3. Could be a cool thing to end the weekend
4. Metalheadz is also on a sunday and I sometimes head to that

I'll be OK with it if they start early. 7-12 would be good for me!

I am one of the lucky few who can travel home 24/7 living next to Gatwick but it still takes 1.5 hours if your lucky at that time of night.

i get up at 6:30 and am on my feet, constantly busy at work for usually 11 to 12 hours a day, no break. sure it's doable for lots of you, just completely not at all for me.

Loved Fwd on a Thursday - real music lovers

Will love Fwd on a Sunday - real music lovers

It might not suit everyone, but it's a good move, which means punters will have to plan their night out to Fwd.

wicked news, i'll certainly be making it down to a few more fwds again then..

used to rep on Thursday once or twice a month but stopped going on fridays cos of stupid ques and different vibes... Plus after making the 2 hour trip down and not getting into the Fwd warehouse party I just gave up on Fridays @ fwd...

Mondays are always hard at work so a few less hours sleep won't hurt.. :P

I ain't complaining because I don't have shit to do on Mondays at the moment, and I won't this summer. But I can understand why some people are pissed.

Big up FWD>>. Sunday Roast tings.

Would it be wrong to assume that fwd has been moved to a Sunday not for the good of the fans - but instead so that Geenius can keep a closer eye on his new weekly Friday Funky night at Club E3?

lol

i doubt most of your typical fwd crowd would even have shoes n no denim in their wardrobe for incognito. Hark back 2 champagne garage days :D

i see where you're coming from but I don't think it a marketing/clash of rinse events thing.

Not just for the fans but also the artists- dubstep is so big now that most fwd residents will have bookings on fridays in far off places, which is a less likely occurence on sundays

LOL @ this.

Who do you think your typical FWD raver is?

I thought FWD>> was for sound heads and nothing else.
