The great debut of Q-dance in Madrid

With the help of Fabrik, Q-dance finally debuted in the Spanish capital with the largest Take Over seen in Spanish territory.

Q-dance, in collaboration with Fabrik, finally landed in Spain in what was a historic night for hardstyle in our country. An absolutely sensational edition that left us wanting more. With the participation of dozens of international artists and headliners, as well as five different areas, The event became the epicenter where hardstyle music lovers from Spain and its surroundings gathered to live an unforgettable experience.

We start the night in style with the debut of 'This Is Sefa' in Spain. Accompanied by his traditional orchestra (even more so than in some of his concerts), Sefa He gave us more than an hour and a half of pure Frenchcore, fusing his most characteristic style with the magic of Nina Zuure on violin or Laurens Huttinga on guitar, among other musicians. The premiere of his new track 'Justify', a nod to dubstep with its edit to 'Kyoto' and many of his classics were the highlights. In addition, he announced that it would not be the last 'This Is Sefa' in Spain.

Later, we continued with the twins Sound Rush, who exclusively presented, for their visit to the city, a remix (hopefully official) to Ana Mena's 'Madrid City'. Special mention also at the closing with that collaboration with Warface that made all attendees vibrate. After his set, finally the main protagonist of this event. Headhunterz entered the scene with the first of their 3 sets on this special day. A set full of classics and some IDs like 'How Far Can You Go', to which he has given a harder touch than we are used to.

We left the main for finally see Doris in Spain. After his recent visit to Bilbao, debuted for the first time at Fabrik. An absolutely energetic session, in which it did not hurt at all to coincide in schedules with Wildstylez, D-Block & S-te-Fan or Rejecta. With a quite full Satelite, he presented several IDs that may lead to an album next year, in addition to that 'Mountains Out Of Molehills' so acclaimed by his fans this year.

Finally, from our point of view, the most special performances together with This Is Sefa: Headhunterz b2b Wildstylez and Headhunterz b2b D-Block & S-te-Fan. Why fool ourselves, every time we see Headhunterz and Wildstylez together they remind us how much we miss Project One. Even more so with that moment they give us every time they play 'The Art of Creation'. Next to D-Block & S-te-Fan They played both 'Keepers Of Our Legacy', as well as every remix they made for each other, added to that new 'Abracadabra' that will break the slopes in 2024.

With a perfect capacity for the situation, we enjoyed two of the biggest names of the year in the hardstyle scene. Both Rebelion and D-Sturb showed why they are two of the favorites to be considered the biggest artists of the year. Both presented several of their upcoming releases and made everyone enjoy a great end to the night.

Undoubtedly, a historic edition for both Fabrik, as for the Spanish scene. Even for Q-dance, with the biggest Take Over currently. As the genre grows by leaps and bounds (right now at the pinnacle along with techno), Spain draws a little more from it. We trust that it will not be the last time that Q-dance in the Spanish capital and we encourage everyone who reads this chronicle to give this genre that we love so much a chance. Long live hardstyle!

One summer of 2014 I wondered what an electronic music festival would be like and 5 years later, I wonder what would become of me without such a festival regularly..
