Defqon.1 is merely weeks away so we decided to take the next step in The Road to Victory and get in touch with some of Australia’s best Raw producers to give you an insight into the state of Raw Hardstyle in Australia.
“HSU, Nightvisions and ESI are all killing it but Defqon.1 is the pinnacle of all Australian Harder Styles events” – The Strangerz
With more and more Raw events being held each year it is undeniable that Raw Hardstyle is slowly but surely infecting Australia. Recently, some of the biggest names in the Raw scene have been called to Australian shores due to an overwhelming demand and it has made for some very impressive events to take place. But this year’s Defqon.1 lineup boasts not only a formidable pool of international artists but a hand picked group of only the very best of Australia’s Raw/Hardcore producers. With names like Delete, Outbreak, Vazard, Fanatics and The Strangerz playing on the Blue stage and Mistorion, Raw Machine and Archetypez playing on the UV stage there is no shortage of options if you need to fulfil your cravings for heavy kick drums and tantalising screeches.
Thankyou Masif Saturdays Wars! We came, we saw, we conquered! Lick your wounds, heal those bones and see you next year!🏆🎶: Fanatics & The Strangerz – Breakin Bones 💪🏼

“Diversity is a major part of our culture as Australians and it is evident in our music” – Fanatics
This year the Blue and Black stages have merged into one unholy stomping ground of Raw and Hardcore, and understandably fans of both genres were a little upset. But as Yusof and Michael from Archetypez poignantly states “you can’t please everyone”. Every year there has been a change to Defqon in some way, shape, or form, and Q-dance does its very best to cater to everyone’s tastes. With that being said, the decisions made to not only the merge the Blue and Black stages, but to create the Australian Hard Dance stage (UV) has prompted Australian Harder Styles fans to further embrace the diversity of their local scene and celebrate the producers who’ve been working tirelessly to build Australia’s reputation.
