First, it was the unannounced Swedish House Mafia reunion down at Ultra Music Festival Miami, and now it’s Showtek returning to their hardstyle roots. 2018 us jampacked with surprises, and it’s only April!
In front of 20,000 screaming Aussies at the iconic Sydney Showgrounds, Dutch legends Showtek returned to their hardstyle roots. After a hiatus from the genre of over six years, it was a jaw-dropping coup as leading Australian promoters Harder Styles United bought the curtain down on their last ever edition of Knockout Circuz.
News of the 100-minute set caught the attention of global media weeks before Sjoerd and Wouter Jannsen even stepped out onto the stage. From the opening strains of ‘Cannonball’ to the dying beats of ‘FTS’, the brothers rained down an absolute cannon of their most classic tracks on the crowd, including ‘Black’, ‘Party Lover’, ‘Early Sounds’, ‘Defqon 1’, ‘Get Loose’, ‘Raver’ and ‘Green Stuff’, taking full advantage of the enormous stage boasting one of the biggest light and sound systems ever to grace Australian soil.
In a move sure to delight fans of hardstyle and of Showtek similarly, Harder Styles United dropped a stunning film of the entire set today via YouTube and their social media channels. A piece of pure dancefloor destruction, be sure to indulge yourselves in the harder side of life…
