Q-dance celebrates 20th anniversary with new event: DEDIQATED
After two decades of dedication and countless successful events, Q-dance will be celebrating their 20th birthday next year.

With a personal message via e-mail, Q-dance invites all harder styles fans to their 20th birthday party: “If you are part of our harder styles family, if you visited more than 50 events or just experienced your first, forged friendships or met the love of your life during one of our many festivals. If you drove your parents insane with the penetrating sound of the reverse bass, hit the dirt during POWER HOUR, watched our endshows with tears in your eyes or spend endless hours in touring cars just to be in time for the opening show. Then you’re one with us and we are one with you. Then you’re a Q-dancer in heart and mind. Then…you are DEDIQATED.”
In 2010, Q-dance celebrated their 10th anniversary with the event De Feestfabriek (dutch, ‘the party factory’) in the Amsterdam ArenA. Big names, like D-Block & S-te-Fan, Endymion and Headhunterz were playing that night. DEDIQATED – 20 Years of Q-dance is a day time event and will be just as big as the 10th anniversary, since the party takes place in the infamous GelreDome.

This message is for you.
If you are part of our harder styles family, if you visited more than 50 events or just experienced your first, forged friendships or met the love of your life during one of our many festivals. If you drove your parents insane with the penetrating sound of the reverse bass, hit the dirt during POWER HOUR, watched our endshows with tears in your eyes or spend endless hours in touring cars just to be in time for the opening show. If you worked your ass off the entire year just to be reunited with our tribe once more.
But also if you survived the rainy first edition of Q-BASE, or stood beside us when we said farewell during the final mission. If you’re the one who to steps on a plane and travels to the other side of the world just to celebrate the beginning of a new year with us. If you loudly chant hardstyle hymns like F.T.S. and Lose My Mind side by side with true believers from all over the world, made it through circle-pits, sit-downs, left-right stampedes and stage dives while taking the bite marks and bruises for granted.
If you were one of the first to be crowned a Weekend Warrior, gave strong feedback when we fucked up, or gave us the ‘thumbs up’ when we nailed it.
If you just turned 18 but have been craving to experience The Gathering for years, if you eternalized our logos on your skin, if you were always the outcast, but are now aligned with thousands of likeminded souls. If you celebrated the 15th edition of Defqon.1 together the Legends or discovered your true self during the ceremonies and rituals of Qlimax.
If the rhythm of your life starts at 150 BPM, if you have been supporting us from the beginning or if you have just been welcomed into our world, if you bang the shit out of every harder styles release and are pushing your friends to do the same. If you’re always the first one in and last one out.
You can be anyone. It doesn’t matter if you work in an office, or come home covered in paint or dust, if you just turned 50, or aren’t even 21 yet. If you’re from a country where freedom is a sacred right, or if you are born in a place that still has long way to go. If you can feel the harder styles flowing through your veins, now and forever, knowing that your heart colours orange till the day you die.
Then you’re one with us and we are one with you.
Then you’re a Q-dancer in heart and mind.
Then…you are DEDIQATED.
One for all, all for the harder styles.
