PRESS RELEASE: The Sound Of Q-dance Welcomed Thousands for Seven Hour Hardstyle Marathon in Los Angeles March 7
Q-dance, the world’s premier hard dance brand, hosted its second ever North American standalone event, The Sound Of Q-dance, at the Los Angeles Shrine Expo Hall on Saturday. Thousands from across California, and from as far as New York, Amsterdam and Canada attended the event.
The Sound of Q-dance took over LA’s Shrine Expo Hall for seven hours, bringing together some of the world’s biggest artists from across the harder styles of dance music including Wildstylez, The Prophet, Frontliner, Brennan Heart, Sylence, Villain and Angelenos Lady Faith and Mr. Skeleton.
From the opening set by LA’s Mr. Skeleton, to the closing rumble of hardcore played by The Prophet, the fervor and passion that Q-dance inspires in its fans was apparent. Flags were waved, banners held aloft, but most of all there was dancing; thousands and thousands of fans, for hours and hours, united by their love for the music.
Renowned for its pioneering production across the globe, The Sound Of Q-dance was no different, as Q-dance created the biggest stage set-up that the famed Shrine Expo Hall has ever hosted. A 50 ft petalled structure, flanked by pryro cannons, and two hexagonal light rigs, made this one of the most spectacular shows the Shrine Expo Hall has ever held.
Q-dance will return to North America at Mysteryland May 23-26.
