“Over the past 15 years Hardstyle has been more than just a music genre for me. It’s been there for me in good and bad times.

It cheered me up when I felt down and it made me euphoric when I felt good. Hardstyle has always been a way of life for me, way more than just a music genre.

Let’s show the world Hardstyle is much more than a music genre and why it’s our passion in life!

During the years I’ve received many letters, telling unique stories of what Hardstyle has meant to you in special moments in your lives. This is something that hasn’t left me untouched, and feel now it’s time to use this energy and give something back to the scene.”




Formerly known as the West Melbourne Stadium (shortened to The Stadium), the Festival Hall was originally built in 1915 as a multi-function venue for boxing and wrestling. It quickly became known to locals as “the House of Stoush”, as over the years some of the greatest names in boxing have duked it out. Since it being rebuilt in ’56, Festival Hall’s versatile set-up has been used by many legendary artists like The Beatles, Oasis and Frank Sinatra.ed.



He´s the godfather of I AM HARDSTYLE. He implements what most artist trying to achieve – spreading hard dance music across the globe. Brennan Heart is a true fable, a master in melodies and represents Hardstyle for more than a decade in his own vision. Hardstyle is the passion of his life. He is the mastermind behind WE R and is ready to bring I AM HARDSTYLE to Australia!


Code Black has played events such as Defqon.1, Qlimax, Mysteryland, Tomorrowland, HardBass and Decibel, being estimated as one of the greatest talents Hardstyle has to offer. Lately, tracks like ‘Can’t Hold Me Back’ and ‘Brighter Day’ have confirmed the outstanding skills of Code Black as one of the top Hardstyle producers. His stage presence and fresh musical ideas are contributing to his status, being well respected among colleagues and supported by a fast growing worldwide fan base.


When you randomly ask some Technoboy fans to describe their idol in one sentence, you can be sure the line “he is the King of hardstyle” will be spoken. That’s quite something, being compared to one of the biggest legends in the music industry. But the ones that have heard and seen Technoboy perform during the ten years of his still-going-on-strong career will understand why.


Recently Darren’s music has caught the attention of some of the biggest artists the EDM scene has to offer including Porter Robinson, Gareth Emery & Krewella. The Concrete Angel remix for Gareth Emery & Lights & Thunder / We Go Down remix for Krewella have been causing mayhem in 2014 at festivals such as Ultra & Coachella.In 2013 Darren was the first UK Hardcore artist to play EDC Las Vegas on the Basscon Stage, coining it as possibly the most pivotal DJ set of his career to date. Darren is returning to headline the Basscon stage in 2014.


Toneshifterz has become the heavy weight and true ambassador of the Australian Hard Dance scene, confirming his status on mainstages both down under (Defqon.1 Festival Australia, IQON) as all over Europe (Decibel Outdoor Festival, Hardbass).  2013 Was the year in which Elie and Olcay decided to split up as a musical duo and Elie will now continue the act alone.  Based in the Netherlands he will continue to incorporate Australia’s best’ into the Hardstyle scene: energy to jump higher and higher.


Blademasterz, Brennan Heart’s second alias and live act from back in the days! He is still here and will take you back to the golden era: Gated kicks and epic melodies will take you back in time, awake old memories and lift you into another dimension. Blademasterz will strike with sharpened blades!


This young Sydney produer’s passion for music has blossomed drastically in many ways. His love for beautiful melodies and raw kicks have lead him to his new beginning. From a young age he has taken a large interest in music and has since then advanced in many ways.


From humble beginnings in the heart of Melbourne, Synthsoldier has grown to become one of Australia’s most promising hardstyle artists. When he started producing at the age of 15 in 2009, little did he know that just 5 years later, he would be collaborating with his idol: Frontliner on their track “The New Age”. This huge release catapulted Synthy to the forefront of the Australian scene and from that moment he hasn’t looked back.

Hosted by: MC D

Cutting across genres whether it be Hardstyle, Hardcore, UK Hardcore, Trap, Breaks or House, D prides himself on the fact that no matter what the style of music is, he’s able to step up and command the microphone like no other. One look at D on stage, it’s obvious that it’s more than just emceeing, it’s a release. What sets D apart from any other emcee is his ethic, “all I want to do is just jump up there and treat the crowd to something special.” D does that and more as many will attest to, here and abroad.
