On October 26, Thunderdome returns to Jaarbeurs in Utrecht. In 2017, the legendary Hardcore-concept made a huge comeback after an absence of five years. The event sold out in the pre-registration phase and welcomed over 40.000 ravers from 54 different nations. Ever since its first edition in the nineties, the concept grew out to become the number one Hardcore-brand in the world. Who thinks about Hardcore, thinks about Thunderdome.
This edition is dedicated to the ‘Gabber’. They are the ones that made Thunderdome legendary in all these years: “Together we are hardcore!”.
Hardcore has been one of the strongest youth/music-cultures in the Netherlands for the last 30 years and crossed the borders to other nations as well. It’s both hated and loved by the public. The subculture took on several forms and created different subgenres in the last three decades. From classics to industrial, Frenchcore to uptempo and terror to early. All these subgenres host a stage in Jaarbeurs in Utrecht and therefore this venue will become the Holy Grounds of Hardcore. Thunderdome is back!
The line-up will be revealed soon. The lucky ones that can claim their tickets from this moment on are the Die-Hards. They can redeem their personal voucher code until the 6th of February. Afterwards, the fans with a registered Thunderdome-tattoo get to grab theirs on the 27th of February. On March 27, the Early Raver pre-registration starts. The pre-registration will be open for a month, up until April 24. Tickets for the last edition sold out during the pre-registration sale, so signing up is highly recommended.
