    I know it's AGEEEES away, but i'm wondering if anyone has any advice on which location to head out to next year?

    Amsterdam would probably be the easiest/cheapest to get to at a guess.

    I would say amsterdam one has the best line up year to year and also one of the best atmosphere I have ever seen,

    My experience there this year.

    I would suggest look at staying in a nice hotel in amsterdam but if you are looking for the cheapest option you can fly there with KLM at around 12 midday to get there for one and make your way to the amsterdam arena (I would suggest public transport as Taxis are quite dodgy/expensive).

    We went for 4 days which tbh was very expensive.

    Next year we will be looking at going to the white and black event.

    Black was alot better music this year unless you like house, but thats just my opinion.

    thats funny, i thought black was crap this year, in terms of dj's, tune selection, and decor. plus the fact that non of the act's could beatmatch for ****, especially cristiano :( and i dont even bother listening to the white sets..not my cup'o tea at all

    This year at black I have heard

    Kai Tracid
    Darkraver
    Technoboy
    Catscan
    Zany
    The Prophet
    and Rob Gee

    The only one I havent full enjoyed is Rob Gee.

    As for beat matching etc I couldn't care less about the technical side to it the music they played imo was top notch.

    Sorry if you get too wound up in the technique to enjoy it.

    /also from white this yr listen to Tiesto, Corsten and Roog and Erick E all of those were very trancey and not housey like klienenberg and guetta

    agree 100% with the rob gee thing, however sex drugs en gabber house, which he started with is an awsome tune :) they just got carried away with the guitars.

    and the music at this years edition was dire imo and many people who attended who i know. zanys set was the only worthwile set of the night. technoboys set was more to apeal for the 'sensation' audiece but was'nt too bad all the same... unfortunately for someone who gets €4000-5000+ extra's for a 1hour performance, he should be ashamed with his so called 'mixing skills'

    showtek were ok, but i prefer the older showtek style.

    and RUFFIAN!! :eek: wtf? make way carlos and stop talking crap whilst you at it

    Have you actually listened to the sets yourself? Or are you going on other peoples opinions?

    Like I said I personally found this years Black very much to my taste of music, this will not be the case for all but from what i can tell of last years sets to this yr the black scene has became more hard trance than just plain hardcore and gabba, where as the white has became more house.

    White isn't what it used to be and neither is Black both are changing and I was trying to advise accordingly as I believe next year black will be even more trancey and white more housey going on the current styles of music around.

    But that is just me, I for one will be at both as I found white this year truely awesome.

    /edit: Also Darkraver dropping Yomanda - Synth and Strings in his set, that would of almost been as big as Tiesto dropping lethal industry during white.

    yes i watched the live stream and have for the last three years

    sensation is aimed at a wider audience than 'hardstyle' in general is and this year i think it refected it more so that ever before

    hardstyle isn't leaning towards hard trance at all, it partialy originated from hard trance and now the reverse bass is being replaced with a more 'jumpy' kick that next to no one, who has followed hardstyle from 2k, likes too much, including myself

    i think the reason you enjoyed it and i didn't is because your at one end of hardstyle and im at the other.
