Same lineup as last year's online version of course, wouldn't be fair otherwise. They got booked for a Qlimax spot, not for a stream.

Q did the same for all other cancelled events so this shouldnt be surprising. The surprise acts could be different though.

Yeah, fair enough. I jumped directly on my frustration without giving it any second thought :dunno: xD

Yeah well, but this is Qlimax. Imagine being at the point of your career where you get to play at Qlimax, the event gets canceled, 'your' Qlimax experience as an artist is limited to playing at a livestream with people watching from their living rooms and next year they book other artists. I think it's good that they keep the lineup. Maybe they will add some more surprises, but don't remove people from the lineup.

I highly disagree, qlimax should be about what's most hype on the moment, and this horrific lineup wouldn't represent that. What about the ones in 2020 who also did a track/movie without getting any benefit?

Also both the artists at qlimax and q-dance didn't say anything about lineup staying the same, they actually aren't aware of it... Honestly it would be devastating.. Act of rage, the guy has had 1 song in the past 4 years and the only difference in his sets compared to pre 2019 is closing with 10 mins of ear rape uptempo at the end... Not to mention sound rush, keltek, frequencerz, qreator, ran-d, the only man in the history to have the 2 worst anthems ever of the same event... Would be a horrible lineup, one of the worst ever imo. So really putting some prayers it changes

Imagine not changing too, a big middle finger to people who have been working hard last years and are doing amazing... Look at b-front, the guy has enough material for a solo album(I count 9 unreleased songs) and a b-frontliner one too, how is it fair to him that people with 0 hype/creatitivty/effort put in the past 2-3 years play at the biggest q-dance indoor over him?

I don't like sefa at all for example but I can't deny he is hyped , and worked hard to earn that spot AND keep it(with an album too), act of rage, keltek, frequencerz, sound rush, even d-sturb who is getting quite stale had their chance to confirm with quality music/sets their spot in 2022 too, but they didn't musically speaking. Meanwhile rebelion, different story, I really doubt they're "worried" they won't be booked again in case lineup changes as they know they have been on fire.

At qlimax i want the best, and what fits the theme of the party, not have the same outdated boring and horrible lineup.

Also from a personal point of view would be a shame , my group in 30 people 25 would end up not going if this lineup stays the same, which sucks even more lol but can't blame them

I agree with your point that except Rebelion and a few others most of the lineup is not the current hype, but I still think it's fair to let them play an actual real Qlimax.

At least I know if I was an artist I would be pissed as hell if I got a call that I'm gonna be playing at Qlimax and due to reasons we all know Qlimax gets reduced to a stream and next year they book others.

it's a business at the end of the day, only an immature child wouldn't accept it. You want the best people performing. Or most hype, not some outdated crap. It's qlimax after all not some random small indoor

So how are those names outdated crap? Sure, most of the names aren't peak hype at the moment but they're still all very active. I don't think it's the best lineup they could do either but it's not illogical imo.

Also 'best' is still subjective and Qlimax is also, and has been for years, about big names. And big is exactly what they are.

Swap SR for Devin Wild and Ran-D for Vertile or something and it would be a pretty awesome lineup imo.

I am taking into account we have Keltek, frequencerz, devin wild and vertile too. Which are in fact PART of last year's qlimax edition. And keltek and frequencerz are acts that wouldn't even be able to pack half blue stage nowadays(at defqon1). IT was confusing to have them to begin with in 2021, but now it's even worse. Qreator, not needed either, although I do think his sets can be quite fun.. But rather just have another big name who's worked his ass off.

With sound rush we fully agree, I have no idea what q-dance sees in them but apparently they have a contract where they share most sound rush brand earnings with Q, which makes sense on why they're the most pushed act and also get every endshow song.

Act of rage... there are no words left for this man and how boring/repetitive his sets are + lack of new stuff.

I think old lineup with 4-5 changes adding in people who gained hype+ are working hardest/removing ones getting stale+boring would make it fair.

I do get your point. I also forgot about KELTEK, Freqz, DW & Vertile being on last year's edition aswell (although Vertile was surprise act iirc)?

Well then maybe this is not the correct or at least not the full lineup. I got it from the hardstyle.com website, and since it had the date (26/11) aswell as the edition title (The Reawakening) I assumed it would be the correct lineup. Maybe things will change, we will see when Q starts posting about Qlimax.

I hope at least Rebelion is correct, and Zany, D-Block & S-te-Fan, Qreator (because good tracklists) + D-Sturb & SZP as well. Although SZP have been a bit stale imo. But I wanna hear those juicy kick edits in the dome.

Vertile would be really cool too. And I think it's time for Rooler / Sickmode / The Gang. I've seen people argumenting that The Gang wouldn't fit the 'dark, mysterious Qlimax vibe' but Qlimax hasn't been about dark & mysterious for years imo. I mean, Da Tweekaz / Tweekacore aren't exactly dark or mysterious and they were there too. Same goes for SR, D-Block & S-te-Fan etc.. you get it.

It would be a crime to not book The Gang or any of the 2 solo, they are peak hype, everything they do turns into gold, from music to live shows. They already are legends in my eyes for the fun, diversity, party vibe and good mixing (especially Rooler) brings. They're packing areas to the point of people having to stand outside of the tents because it's too full inside. Give it to them Q!

I'd guess they are going to change the lineup, if not they probably would've said so in their FAQ.
They might do what they did with the surprise artists on the stream, give the artist that should've gotten a spot last year a 10-15 minute set.
Willem loves a good chant
