Are you sure you haven't dialed in any negative exposure compensation? And could you possibly post an example picture for us to see?

I'll add a bit of info. I've so far had a bit of experience shooting indoor festivals in my homecountry (Belgium). Especially the I Love Techno festival. I used my 7D, 17-55 2.8 IS. 50 1.4 and 70-200 2.8. And indeed, 2.8 is rather slow, most of the time. One has to be lucky. Primes are something I want to invest in, but later on. The reason I asked this question was mainly because, on a second hand site, I saw an offer of a 5DII+24-105F4L IS for 900 euros. (And some more ridiculous deals, such as 5DII + 70-200F4L IS + 50 F1.8 + backpack for 900 euros, even just a body for 900, which still seems very low.)
Not sure what you mean by f/2.8 is rather slow - do you mean that at f/2.8 the shutter speed is too slow? If so just up the ISO
- how much light is there?
- how far from the stage are you going to be?
- can you use flash?
- are they going to mind if you use a large white lens?
