The planning and preparation has been set to create one of the most spectacular & intense indoor rave arena HSU has ever created.

As you walk into the arena at sunset, be prepared to be taken on a visual & sensory overload with hours of lasers, spectacular lighting shows and crystal clear audio.
Angerfist is the world’s number 1 hardcore act, underlined by the fact that he received the prestigious 39th spot in DJ Mag's Top 100 DJ edition of 2011, dropping to 42nd on the following year and rising up again to the 34th place in 2013, being the first hardcore artist ever to hit the chart.
Angerfist was founded in 2001, when he dropped his first EP on Overload Records, the former sublabel of Masters of Hardcore Records. After that EP, he has produced an impressive continuous streak of hit records on Masters of Hardcore. Danny Masseling has produced three albums: “Pissin’ Razorbladez’”, “Mutilate” and “Retaliate” were released in 2006, 2008 and 2011. The albums had a huge impact on the scene and the development of hardcore music wise, especially in the last few years: Angerfist is the only artist to have four consecutive #1 hits on the annual MOH Hardcore Top 100 with "The Voice Of Mayhem (vs Outblast & MC Tha Watcher)" in 2010, "Incoming" in 2011, "Catastrophe (vs Outblast & MC Tha Watcher)" in 2012 and the destructive "Street Fighter" slammer in 2013. Next to the Angerfist project, Danny Masseling also produces records under the monikers of Kid Morbid, Bloodcage and Menace II Society.
Besides the music, Angerfist is known for the unique live-performances dressed in hooded sweater and wearing the infamous Jason-mask while performing all over the world. Bringin the grimy beats to every continent, Angerfist is selling out virtually every venue. With an unstoppable drive to spread the hardcore virus, he is destined for a long future of destructive beats.
Two words to describe Angerfist? Retaliate and devastate!
Passionate, dedicated, perfectionist
As an artist Ran-D represents his crowd in more that one way: he comes from their ranks. Starting as a visitor on the same events as where he now performs in front of them. And he shares their enthusiasm, knowing exactly what they need and to go beyond that, topping everyone’s expectations. Respect for his fans is something that grows from within; a deeper understanding what hardstyle truly is about. “I share the same passion for music as my audience, that is what drives me.”
That specific emotion Ran-D gives to tracks comes from his own voice and mind. Not only does he write every single line of text, he eventually sings every word. With love for edits, small details in a track, this guy takes great care of his productions.
Malthe Mehlskov, aka Adrenalize is the definition of being a rising star. Born in the outskirts of Copenhagen, Denmark in 1996 makes him the youngest artist in the Scantraxx roster. Malthe was only 10 when he began to play around with a few simple music-making programs, and his passion for music has grown ever since. When everybody else was playing computer games he was putting samples together.
His style of uplifting melodies and innovative thinking is a true match. His productions have already made it into several charts and he has received support from Headhunterz, Ran-D, Wildstylez and many other DJ’s in the scene. It is no secret that his talent has given him an opportunity like no other and his future in the hardstyle scene has only just begun.
World, get ready for Adrenalize!
