Are you ready to witness Heaven and Hell all under one roof? Then enter the
Arena of Legends...

Raver Baby mastermind, Ian ‘Hixxy’ Hicks is the true architect of the UK hardcore scene. The mad scientist behind Raverbaby, the world’s largest Hardcore label, was a main influence in the development of early Happy Hardcore in the 90’s. These days he commandeers the Raver Baby and HTID imprints, as well as mixing huge compilations such as the Clubland Extreme Hardcor series. Armed with a crate full of Clubland exclusives, don’t miss your chance to see this living legend melt the dancefloor! www.myspace.com/djhixxyuk

The force behind ‘The Third Movement’ records, the sound of Promo is paradoxically described as ‘accessibly dark’. His rough and rugged sound is known worldwide with his remarkable hooks and characterizing kicks, to which he has worked on for years and is imitated and sampled globally. A regular player at the colossal European festivals such as Defqon, Mysteryland, & Sensation Black, have protection ready as you are in for possibly the hardest attack your ears will ever witness! www.myspace.com/djpromodotnl

With more than ten years on the mic and a regular at events such as Slammin’ Vinyl, Raverbaby, HTID and Hardcore Heaven, Storm truly is a master of ceremony. The main MC for fellow DJs such as Hixxy, Sy, Breeze and Styles, Storm provides turbo-charged rhymes to their respective sounds. The UK’s number one MC has his sight set on rocking Sydney once again, so prepare your ears to be mesmerized by the whirlwind that is Storm! www.myspace.com/mcstormuk

Godspeed 8th Bday brings together a wicked range of talent all under one roof!
