Where to Experience Q-Dance's Wild Festival Parties This Summer

Founded in 1999 as Qlass Elite by a group of friends in the northern suburbs of Amsterdam, Q-Dance has gone onto to become the beacon brand of hardstyle, hardcore and hard trance music.

Nowadays the brand hosts events and festivals around the world (Qlimax, Dominator and Defqon.1), as well as curating stages at a number of major dance festivals, including Tomorrowland and Mysteryland.

Showcasing a mix of major and underground names, Q-Dance has gained a reputation as the go-to place for hardstyle fans to discover the latest trends in the genre. Add in its dramatic production and striking visuals, and you've got some of the most memorable parties in dance music.

Here's a rundown of where you can catch the Q-Dance party this summer. 

World Club Dome

Q-Dance Headliners: Brennan Heart, Coone, Noisecontrollers, Wildstylez

Mixing hardstyle with EDM, house and techno is Germany's World Club Dome. Transforming Frankfurt's Commerzbank Arena (which doubles up a football stadium) into "the world's biggest club", expect huge names from across the genres and one heck of a light show. 

When & Where: 2-4 June 2017, Frankfurt, Germany

Defqon.1 Weekend Festival

Headliners: Angerfist, Wildstylez, Brennan Heart, Radical Redemption

Boasting 14 stages, over 250 artists and attracting over 100,000 hard dance fans, Defqon.1 is now the biggest festival of its kind anywhere in the world. 2017's theme is 'Victory Forever' to mark the festival's fifteenth anniversary, and will be read into the festival's stages and artistic curation. It's also the name of its anthem, recorded by Frequencerz. 

What's more, Defqon.1's spectacular closing shows have become a thing of legend, with its already-vibrant staging coming alive with synchronised lights, lasers and pyrotechnic displays.  

When & Where: 23-26 June 2017, Biddinghuizen, Netherlands

New Horizons

Spectacular, flamboyant and incredibly imaginative are probably the best three ways to describe Mysteryland. Oozing creativity – innovative stages, vibrant art installations, sculptures and theatrical performers – the Amsterdam festival's grandiosity doesn't betray a lack of cutting-edge music, with the likes of Cocoon, elrow, Hospitality and more accompanying Q-Dance this August.

When & Where: 26-27 August 2017, Amsterdam, Netherlands
