What a summer!
Since revealing our first documentary and album at the end of 2012, the support from our fans has been nothing short of unbelievable. Your immeasurable levels of dedication drove us to host stages at two massive parties, and continue spreading our message to the world.
In August we visited The Qontinent, a 3-day hard dance festival in Belgium, where thousands of hardcore maniacs partied with us for hours. A month later we touched down at Airport Weeze (Germany) for a sold out edition of Q-BASE. Again, our army of fans marched upon the abandoned air force base in huge numbers, and didn’t stop going crazy until the very last second.
There was no doubt in our minds that these would be days and nights for the history books, so our camera crew came along for the ride. We wanted to show you everything, from the energetic crowds to the backstage madness, and also give you a little sneak peek at our plans for the future.
This is Hardcore is not possible without you, the fans, and we will never forget it. We hope you enjoy this movie, and join us in declaring our devotion to hardcore.
Hardcore lunatics, we are calling upon you to become a part of our movement this summer.
Our goal is simple; show others the hardcore way of life. On Saturday the 10th of August we will host the “Valley of the Lost” area at this year’s edition of The Qontinent, but we’ve also got something else up our sleeve. Moving on to September, we will join Q-dance on Saturday the 7th at Airport Weeze (Germany) for Q-BASE!
We need you to get as many people involved in these parties as possible, so The Viper has prepared a special mix for This is Hardcore. We’ve added some great footage showing thousands of dedicated fans and artists going insane at a variety of parties. Use this video to spark a passion for hardcore in someone you know and we’ll do the rest at The Qontinent & Q-BASE!
This video will show the world what we are really about. This is Hardcore.
