Trip To Ravers Paradise – Defqon.1 2012 AUS Event Review

Trip To Ravers Paradise – Defqon.1 2012 AUS Event Review

On the 15th of September 2012 I had the pleasure of attending Defqon.1’s Hardstlye festival boasting huge names like Headhunterz, Wildstylez, Zany and Evil Activities. If you enjoy your R'n'B or commercial dance and have never heard these names before? this may not be an event for you. Featuring seven stages of pumping bass lines at speeds up to 180 bpm, this is now the 4th year Q-dance has landed on Australian shores.

Hard Kandy & 3D Present Kidd Kaos Event Review

In true Melbourne rave style, 2 Friday night giants Hard Kandy and 3D Nightclub put on what proved to be another killer high energy Hard Dance party. Hard Kandy have always been one of my favorite event organisers. Now in their 13th year Hard Kandy shows that it's still up to speed with what ravers want.

It's not all that often I get to go back down to Melbourne — the city that originally got me into the rave scene — but back in March I was lucky enough to be there for Hard Kandy & 3D Present Kidd Kaos and man was I in for a treat.

There exists a magical island where for a single day a ravers dreams can come true.
