Now that 2018 comes to an end, we look back on a legendary year from the biggest organisation in the harder styles: Q-dance. Counting down in New Year’s Eve style, these are the 11 most memorable Q-dance moments from this year.

11. Let’s get wack with the wolfpack

The year started for Q-dance with a sold out AFAS Live, where Frequencerz had their very own X-Qlusive. Some visitors might still find the confetti in places they didn’t even know existed, because the Wolfpack duo threw one giant party in the first month of the year.

10. The QAPITAL anthem show by Phuture Noize

Right before the beginning of the festival season, we witnessed the raw hardstyle event with the rotating DJ-booth: QAPITAL. Where Phuture Noize presented his ‘Anthem of Freedom’ in front of a packed Ziggo Dome, of course with lots of fireworks and amazing light show.

9. Total madness during Power Hour at Defqon.1

So many others have tried, but no one has succeeded like the hardstyle crowd this year: thousands of people jumped from left to right during Defqon.1’s Power Hour. “Yes, yes, here we go!”

8. ’25 Years of Neophyte Hardcore’ show at Dominator

Closing down this year’s edition of Dominator, Neophyte celebrated his 25th anniversary with a spectacular endshow. ”Start the war, cause we are on the floor, it’s never seen before, army of hardcore… HARD CORE!”

7. Q-dance at the magical Tomorrowland

For two weekends long, you were able to enjoy the Q-dance hosting at the world biggest festival: Tomorrowland. This is how hardstyle was represented to the rest of the entire globe!

6. Enjoying the Belgian sun during The Qontinent

Another Q-dance edition in Belgium: because also the biggest harder styles festival of the country The Qontinent took place. Relive the wonderful summer weekend down below.

5. Saturday Endshow with Q-dance x Mysteryland

As king of the hill, the iconic endshows from Q-dance and Mysteryland never disappoint. This was also the case for the Saturday, which was an absolute joy to watch.

4. The Midnight Salute Show at Q-BASE

Precisely at 12 o’clock, it was time for the Midnight Salute Show at Q-BASE. But this was the very last edition of the event, and so we had so say farewell in style. This was The Final Mission.

3. Pre-party for the return of X-Qlusive Holland XXL

Total madness in a typical Dutch setting. X-Qlusive Holland XXL returned in 2018 to the Ziggo Dome and towards the event, Q-dance organized a pre-party at their office for the enthusiasts. On one condition though: you had to bring your grandfather or -mother!

2. The opening of Qlimax – The Game Changer

It’s always a magical moment when the curtain of the Qlimax stage fall down. So this year, another huge stage got revealed in front of the crowd in the GelreDome, where Sound Rush opened with ‘Take It All’.

1. WOW WOW: the brand new Q-dance event

”WOW WOW”‘ is the sound we are all familiar with because that’s the soundbite which closes down every Q-dance event. This very element has is very own New Year’s Extravaganza in the Ziggo Dome and you’ll definitely experience all of the moments mentioned above one more time.

Tickets for Q-dance presents: WOW WOW on Monday 31st of December are available. Get them now for New Year’s Eve at the official website of the event.
