Come October, Dortmund will host Europe's hardest-hitting party. The city is already synonymous with fervent football fans, so Dortmund's Westfalenhallen is a fitting location for a congregation of electronic music's harder styles.
The reason for Syndicate's reputation for holding the crown of hardstyle parties is that you can depend on their lineup consisting of the genre's royalty, seeing Angerfist, Miss K8, and Radical Redemption join the party this year.
To get you to grips with the face-melting music on display this October, we've put together a playlist made up of the featured artists.
Whilst we're aware that listening through your headphones won't quite do it justice, it'll still furiously start your heart pounding in anticipation.
