1999 Prognosis evolved after a night out at Plexus, Newcastle University. From then on, the love and passion for Psy trance led them to organise the first Psy trance parties outside of the University . With his best Mate Greame Farrer set about educating the North East into the sounds of Psy trance. It was not long before they had their first party at the Riverside at Newcastle .They went on to play around the North East until finally finding a home at Thimbleberry Music Festival .
