Return of the Harder Style: First Headliners for the Zombie Stage • BigCityBeats WORLD CLUB DOME Frankfurt 2019
Who doesn’t know the classic Cranberrie “zombie” in year 1993 ? – This was a rethorical question! The smoky-itchy vocal-line by singer Dolore O’Riordan, rocking smash-elements, mixed with crunch. This world wide success celebrated its comeback last year – as hardstyle-act. The covertrack by dutch DJ Ran-D reached nearly 50 million views on YouTube. Surely, the hardest sounds’ international flagship is a must on the Zombie Stage at the BigCityBeats WORLD CLUB DOME in Frankfurt.
The Zombie Stage – this year, on June 8th and 9th, the zombie stage will reappear at the open aired Commerzbank-Arena in Frankfurt. It will be even bigger, better and louder than the successfull premier in 2018. Hardcore-, Hardstyle-, Hard-Techno- and Psytrance-Fans are amazed when they take a look at the Line-Up (Phase 1), which has been published by now. There’s no need to talk around the bushes: here are the first ten acts, who will be shooting their tracks with fireworks, flame-jets, special effects, co2 shootings towards the crowd.

As well as his fellow countryman Wildstylez who fills the big halls. He is DJ, label-manager and Out-of-Control-Generator. Trademark: you can say the stage’s demolition and the unrestrained-wild rage by the dancefloor-community.
