Looking for parties?

I've been to both last Qlimax and Hard bass and I honestly have to say that Hard bass was at least 2 points better (on a 0-10 scale) compared to Qlimax.
Sets, stage and lasers show way superior. Sound quality I didn't notice any difference. Can't believe they barely sold 95% of the tickets.

The arena looked as packed to me, but still, I don't wanna believe that it sells so much less just due to marketing(vs Qlimax) when the event's quality is as good.. Clueless people :D .. But at least less stress to get tickets for future years :D .. And for next year if they actually wanna sell out they might have to get a crazy lineup with all the most "popular djs" if they don't wanna do much with marketing.

My short review

+++
- Team Red. Blow minding set! This sound simply forced me to come down from the bleachers and hit the dance floor until the end of the set. That's a real rave feeling _O_
- SOH. Noisecontrollers is undoubtedly one of the most talented HS producers. And together with other participants of SOH this is the real spirit of hardstyle. Very qualitative and emotional set (L)
- Adaro. Joker of the evening. Generally not a big fan of his sound. But this set has pleasantly surprised me. Strong, energetic and very danceable :dance:
- Powerful laser and especially light show. Huge transformer on stage suitable for the theme. B2S has succeeded in overtaking Q this year.
- Not so many people as at Qlimax. Recently at Qlimax was unbearable to wade through the crowd. At HB the dance floor was full of space. Even in the toilets was half empty :)
- As always a positive Dutch audience.

---
- Terrible sound in the stands :(
- Long queues at the entrance. Also in the premium area. People were let in when the first set of Deepack started. Maybe something was not ready in there, I do not know.
- The premium ticket didn't include the cost of the locker :dunno:

Actually it was a real Hard Bass this year. A unique combination of a huge arena, thick lighting effects, powerful sound and extra hard music. I didn't think that I would ever say this, but for me Hard Bass 2018 was better than my last Qlimax

The premium queue was an absolute joke! The fact they started deepack before anyone was in was another!

I got given a card for a free locker though?

Yep premium had free locker, cool key chainwe got aswell.
And the queue was a joke, they sold way to many premium tickets, last time i had vip/premium was Qlimax 15 and i basically was inside the gelredome within 5 minutes...
The stage, lights and lasers was top notch, an insane combination.

I saw many who had to pay. For some reason they didn't give everyone a voucher for the locker.

You have to ask. They don’t have enough lockers for every premium guest... Sneaky bastards

The sound at the VIP tribune was insanely bad, but the lightshow amazing from there.
I think we all know the answer.. Explosions!
