Dystopia Festival attracts a lot of attention in France with the biggest artists from hardstyle, hardcore and hard techno. The two-day harder styles event ensures that the French scene finally has a major party in their area: with artists and even stage builders for an event “according to Dutch standards”.

The ambitious Dystopia Festival welcomes 8,000 visitors this month and the organization strives to create a production as we know it in the Netherlands. That’s why it has (in addition to the best artists) engaged the designers responsible for the largest stages in our genre, such as Intents Festival, REBiRTH and many others.

“The new hard music/techno sensation,” Dystopia proudly announces. With two areas on both days, the mainstage is all about the harder styles. The first day is all about hardcore, with Angerfist, Deadly Guns and F.Noize, among others. The second day is for hardstyle and RAW, where Rooler, Vertile, D-Sturb and Hard Driver take the center stage. Big hard techno names such as Shlømo, Basswell and Alignment can also be found in the second area.
