The 2012 Defqon.1 line-up is here!

Ever since the last firework went off above Defqon.1 2011, hard dance fanatics have been counting down the days to its return. On Saturday 15 September 2012, Q-dance will bring the festival back to Sydney under the banner of True Rebel Freedom. As past experiences have proven, there’ll be colossal production, sound and staging – and fourth time round, you can expect it to be more spectacular than ever.

All which brings us to the next piece in the Defqon.1 puzzle: the 2012 line-up. The Red Mainstage will again come alive with next-level theming and the likes of Headhunterz, Frontliner, Zany and Wildstylez while a host of coloured stages cover a range of different sounds. Scroll through each stage below, and head to the new Defqon.1 website to find out more. Tickets go on sale 1 June via Q-dance.com.au.

If you’re planning to really make a weekend of it, Q-dance is once again offering the ‘Extended Camping Experience’. The Silent Disco has been scrapped from the camping pre-party and replaced with an Open-Air Stage complete with powerful sound-system. Some of the line-up’s big stars will be headlining the pre-party, so head to the Defqon.1 website to find out the details.
