Ten things not to miss if you are into the harder styles

  • Ten things not to miss if you are into the harder styles

The harder styles in electronic music have been actively blended into the ADE program this year.

Following up on the recent updates about the return of ADE BeamLab and House of China, we focus on the Hard Dance Event integration within the ADE program. 

As hardstyle grows, the time has come for our beloved sound to become fully integrated into the event. Years ago, we set up the Hard Dance Event (HDE) with Q-dance because we wanted to give the harder styles a bigger role during ADE. As the years went by, we noticed that hardstyle finally got the attention it deserves. That’s why we have decided to make a change to this year’s program.

From this year on, the harder styles will become part of the ADE Pro, ADE BeamLab, ADE Sound Lab and the ADE University program. This means that Hard Dance Event will no longer be a stand-alone event, but that you can enjoy multiple panels at these four ADE events, and more! In need of some guidance? We've listed ten things to visit when you're into the harder styles:

  • Maurice Fransen will tell us all about his research into the hardstyle scene during his panel Researching the Hardstyle Scene at ADE University. In this research, new insights were discovered about the visitors of hardstyle events and what drives them to visit these events. Definitely a must-visit for hardstyle aficionados.
  • A panel about the art of stage design called The Creative Chain Revealed at ADE BeamLab. From the earliest concepts to the final product, the creatives of Q-dance discuss what it takes to create the ultimate stage.
  • From underground to mainstream, the status of hardstyle within the dance scene has evolved immensely throughout the years. But what’s the reason behind the success of this sound that has been underground for so long? Find out in the ADE Pro panel How Hardstyle Became One of the Dominant Genres 
  • Multigroove documentary screening at Vice HQ. More info coming soon.
  • Mosh pits, sit-downs, and high energy along with live acts are all the things you can expect at the FVCK GENRES by LNY TNZ event at Club NYX on ADE Sunday. Their cross-over sound of hardstyle, trap, and future bass have fans coming together from every genre. Tickets are available here.
  • A panel about the Team Behind Headhunterz at ADE UniversityHeadhunterz was the first international hardstyle superstar. He will be bringing his team of agents and managers, plus his PR and label representatives to explain how they make his hectic schedule work while protecting him from the stresses of being a globe-trotting superstar DJ.
