The only negative thing for me atleast
Random b front appears to just play Anthem then off again, whyyyy? I don't rly see an issue that the Anthem is played later in a raw time slot than "euphoric prime time" same for qapital, did exactly the same

And what kind of anthem... damm boring if you heard Next Dimensional World and Fate or Fortune before it.
Not that those are the best anthems, but IMO B-Front just didn’t delivered the real Qlimax Anthem feeling.

BTW DBSTF were the best act by FAR this edition, great quality tracks epic vibe during the set (L) (L)

Great edition, best of both worlds musically. One of the hardest qlimaxs I can recall?

Stage was great, new ideas and that Sound Rush intro with the women behind the led wall was incredible!

Also have to say that to me, the sound on the floor (I didn't go up on the sides or back) was perfect. They have really nailed the system in my opinion. For a Gelredome event this was almost perfect. So so much new music, every artist pulled it out of the bag, the set lists felt special rather than a standard event.

Only downside to me was the anthem show, it really wasn't anything special.

and btw: i dont think that the Qreator was Issac, Tuneboy, Zany, Prophet etc.
The way he moved behind the decks did not fit to them.

It was my 5th Qlimax and the best one so far ! All the sets were incredible, quality of the sounds just mindblowing, stage pretty dope, a lot of special features by all artists, and Villain who take the space enough.. I join you on one point, this anthem doesn't give me anything... Great party !

when the courtain fell, i got no goosebumps. i was quite dissapointed. the stage was too small for me and the painted walls on the side were too easy done. i expect something on the sides like 2016/2018 and a bit more movement overall. the 2 small traverses were not enough - it looked to me just "not quite finished". the 2 half-rings over the floor were nearly the same like last year - "copy paste and change 1 or 2 things".

the fast changing of b-front with his anthem and dbstf were strange and i did not like it. the anthem should be played when b-front will also then perform.

sound on the side was ok, like every year with the "new system" with reduced bass because of the neighberhood (i can totally understand them) - heavy improvement is not really to be expected anymore at the current place at the gelredome because of this.

i liked dbstf and heady, the rest was ok. we leaved while ran-d because it was not our taste of music, so i can not say anything on the other ones. it was a bit too hard for my taste, but taste is different for everyone. Q will never make it right and good for everyone, they have to hit the middle.

villain was fine for me - not too much dumb claims. for my taste, he or any mc is not necessary for me.

lightshow and the show in gerneral was good and the lasers were placed very good this time - you had even on the sides in the back a good view on them. i agree, that the anthem show was a bit weak, but ok.

i wrote this with gone to the last 10 (now 11) qlimaxes in row. the point is, that i maybe saw already "everything" at qlimax and had the whole night maybe only 1 moment where i thought "wow, cool" (the 2 beamer walls behind each other was sth i did not really understand how they have done it, because you could sometimes not see through the first one and sometimes you could), so i think with 82€ ticket price (+ parking + high costs for drinks/food (really, 10€/l water without gas and you do not get the plug?! this costs like 0,15€/l in a discounter. yes i know its qlimax, but come on thats a rip off even when we got our water with the bottle on the toilets afterwards) + locker + car gas) in mind, i think it was now sadly my last qlimax...

back home, my 8th qlimax.
the show was amazing,dancer rotating in the air, singer appearing, mc's, chanting people, sia Evans in the air for orange heart(highlight of the night), lasershow flames and fireworks...dj's uniforms(finally!!), that was some true thing that represent the spirit of a qlimax,even the intro of dj's and the narration were really amazing.

negative points, the stage was very good togheter, but not original int he main part, the background was good but, why not illluminate well or doing it a bit more 3d?

the qreator, it's not possible that qlimax have lost one of his most beautiful weapon,the warmup, calling a masked man(probably isaac or prophet, even if he's moving arms were strange to recognize in them) and playing for almost 4 years now, "let the beat control your body" or tnt stuff overplayed in qlimax openings.
we have a thousands of famous classics, something forgotten etc, change the tfucking tracklist.
and he played 7/8 classic tracks till 2011 stuff? the rest was almost new stuff.
even sound rush do it better, playing Josh&Wesz - like thiz!!

and last, the way of mixing, but this in every party. 20 seconds of tracks and then they fucking cut it and restart with a intro of another track when someone is singing etc. this way of doing sets ruin the flow.

overhall 8/10, i really had fun and stayed almost the entire night front row _O_

@comfreak

i agree in some aspects, and i felt it really well. when you are a veteran of the party, it's clear that the feelings are a bit different except some few moments. but this is because even the scene is changed.
because this year i had more than one moment i were hyped as fuck, against the last 4/5 years, so i think that if qdance rebuild the column of this party (warmup,intros and narration, extra artist being part of scenography) i'm sure i will live new valid emotions that only qlimax gave me in the past, not as the same, but with the happiness and selfconfidence in it after being a veteran

i missed that point. yes, this fucked me really up this year. they are all very professional djs - why do they not mix more tracks one in each other?! as you said, it totally ruins the flow and i fell like they joke with us "hey now dance, now stop, now dance ...", wtf...

i won't say, that they should never do it, but they should do it at the right time, it should fit, like with an idea behind it and not just eeeevery track (i think to remember, that b-front stopped most of the time between the songs).

i totally agree as a veteran you have more feelings - but i had definitive a lot more feelings at the last qlimaxes (but it got less and less) than this year

In my opinion this was a very good edition! I've been going since 2011, and I'd say that 2015 and 2017 were definitely below expectations. This year, all the sets were fabulous, the show was amazing as usual, the stage was pretty good. It blended in very nicely with the arrangement of the lights and all, even if the construction itself was not as impressive as other times.

I do love qlimax for the diversity of the sound and the escalation from early to euphoric, raw and hardcore. But overall I enjoy rawstyle the most, and I had been hoping for a RR set since the beginning. And man, did he deliver! This was one of my most epic qlimax experiences and something to remember for a lifetime _O_ Pure epicness. We were going absolutely nuts. Then miss k8 closed with an another incedibly engergetic set and I felt very fulfilled in the end. Keltek, DBSTF, Headhunters & D-Sturb were amazing as well, and all the others were good. I hope very much that Q will now stick to the storytelling and costumes, it makes so much of the whole atmosphere. And the atmosphere at qlimax is what sets it apart from all the other events I've been.
I'd always like to see bigger & more transforming stages, like 2013 and 2016, and please just give us the curtain every time.
Also I think the intros in 2011 and 2012 were awesome, but I don't think we'll ever see them return, and maybe I just liked it a lot because it was my first experience of this kind.

For me very very likely not my last qlimax yet :) (H)

My 9th Qlimax in a row since 2011, and that was for sure the HARDEST Qlimax we ever had ! Even the more "euphoric" acts dropped some heavy kicks :fist:

Stage was great, loved the design and all the little details, I don't understand people complaining about the no-transformation stage, like if it has always been a rule for Qlimax stage (we only had 2 transformation stage in 9 years, 2013 and 2018). People act like spoiled children and can't even enjoy the amazing production Q-Dance delivers anymore.

Set of the night was probably DBSTF, but every sets were great (maybe except SR but I'm not really fan of them). And Miss K8 delivered a crazy hardcore finish, gave the last energy I had left _O_

6th Qlimax for me, and I am very pleased with this edition. DBSTF is doing such a great job keeping the euphoric scene interesting, and for me their set was jaw dropping!

Not happy with SR, at least 1/3 of their set felt like sing along lyrics.

The sound was really good this year, the stage was impressive and I didn't see any teargas this year (can someone confirm this?) even though I went through security without being checked at all, felt bad.

8/10 for me!
