Notes

This is a special limited edition of the Megarave III compilation, which comes with an extra third CD. It's housed in a double jewel case with green opaque disc trays and fliptray.
The extra CD is not mentioned on back cover, the only sign of difference with the regular edition on the outside packaging is a small yellow sticker on front stating "3CDs for the price of 2 - Limited edition".
There are two pages of the booklet that differ with the regular edition:
* The 4th page contains information about the bonus CD, whereas in the regular edition this page only contains artwork;
* The 9th page (the second page of the "historie of Megarave" quoted below) is correctly printed in this edition, while in the regular edition it erroneously contains exactly the same text as the previous page.

Artists listed on front cover:
"Ilsa Gold - Frankie Jones & Bountyhunter - Hardsequences
Lenny Dee - P.C.P. - Genlog - Acrid Abeyance - Boscaland

"THE HISTORIE OF MEGARAVE"

July 1990, George went to the club Nighttown in Rotterdam, where he was confronted with house music for the first time. A new experience in a new atmosphere. An atmosphere where everybody seemed to be having fun.
For his first big party, The Ultimate House Party (21-12-90) at the AHOY in Rotterdam, he used Nighttown as an example. Ronald Molendijk (Nighttown), Paul Elstak (Holy Noise) & Dano were the D.J.'s that night. Live on stage were Fierce Ruling Diva, Turntable Hype and lots of dancers. This was the first succesfull big rave in Holland.

In july 1991 George organised a party at a mysterious location, the Maasvlakte!!! (a beach with a very industrial skyline). About 750 people attented this small try-out party with unknown D.J.'s like D.J. Hardcore and D.J. Mellow Lover1. Nobody would have believed that this party would be the foundation for the biggest house event ever.

EURORAVE 92, location: Maasvlakte. A small fluorescent flyer was used to draw the attention of lots of ravers and invite them to come to the beach and party in the sand. D.J.'s were Abraxas, Paul, Roos, Remo, Zoeff and Jeroen. Live acts: Fierce Ruling Diva, M.N.O., 80 Aum, Meng Syndicate and Holy Noise. Thousands of people came to the party and had a wonderful time.

After this huge succes (EURORAVE II) there had to be a sequel, which took place on the fifth of September. Again thousands of people showed up to listen to Paul, Per, Gizmo, Roos, Mac de Hey, Holy Noise, V-Room and the 80 Aum Experience.

Due to the cold and the demand for another Eurorave, George tried to find another location. The only location possible in Rotterdam was the Energiehal. The EURORAVE III (19-12-92) just had to be a succes with D.J.'s like Westbam, Paul, Mac de Hey, Roos and acts like Rotterdam Nation (R.A.W.) and 80 Aum.

(6-3-92) The EURORAVE IV at the Energiehal-Rotterdam. A new dimension in the house scene. Astonishing light effects, full-colour lasers, a gigantic videoscreen and an 'earthquake' noise system to provide a 140dB sound. D.J.'s Rob, Gizmo, Paul, Hooligan, Dark Raver, Roos, T-Base and Mac de Hey. Live: D.J. Rob & M.C. Joe and Human Resource.

The demand for bigger raves was growing, so George was thinking of something new. The plan he had for this rave would make it the biggest one in the world. The MEGARAVE was born!!!. At this rave (3-7 1993) over 20.000 people showed up to party at the beach (Maasvlakte). D.J.'s Dark Raver, Lenny Dee, Gizmo, Dano, Paul, Rob, Gijs, Franky Jones, Buzz Fuzz, Roos, Remo, Remi, Mental Theo, Dimitri, Piwi, Mac De Hey, The Prophet, Marcello, Coen and T-Base. Live acts: Ruffneck Alliance, Speed City, Dyewitness, TFX, V-room, Fierce Ruling Diva, Holy Noise, D.J. Rob, M.C. Joe, Euromasters, 80 Aum and the Dark Raver.

The MEGARAVE PART II was given the subtitle "RADIOACTIVE ZONE", the location for this rave was the Energiehal in Rotterdam. The promotion for this flyer was a small booklet and a small poster with only the logo, the location and the date on it. It worked probably, because about 12.000 people came to the party. The Radioactive zone was, and still is, a combination of good D.J.'s. great live performances, extreme lightshows and ofcourse a good sound.

For The MEGARAVE PART III, George decided to visit our German friends. This rave was organised in cooperation with Raveline, the German house magazine. A power station in Duisburg would be the perfect location for this rave. D.J.'s were: Tanith, Steve Mason, Moguai, Plank, Pascal F.E.O.S., Dark Raver, Franky Jones, Paul, Gizmo, Prophet, Buzz Fuzz, Qiu, Petrov, Rob, Distortion, Hooligan and Lenny Dee. Live acts: Genlog, Resistance D., Acrid Abeyance, Hardsequencer, Randy, Frankfurt Terror Corp, Rotterdam Terror Corps and Reanimator. A lot of special light effects were shown at this rave and the sound was enormous. Again the MEGARAVE - RADIOACTIVE ZONE proves to be one of the best raves.
