When up to 48.000 party people pilgrimage to the Olga Park, which is covered in the wildest colors and when the kicks are shattering through the place, it can only mean the “Ruhr in Love” is back again. On July 2nd the fourteenth edition will once again offer up to 40 stages with more than 400 artists to mark its aspiration as the family festival of the electronic music scene. But this year will have a little premier for all Hardstyle Mag and Hardstyle lovers readers.

The floor

Under the slogan “it’s all about love” the gates to the Olga Park will open at 12 o´clock at noon and stay open until the watch hand hits the 10pm.

Including the MixeryStage, 39 floors around will be hosted and designed by the creators and supporters of the electronical music scene which means not just supporters across Germany but also from Austria, Swiss or the Netherlands. Beside floors already known from prior editions like “Affenkäfig” or “RauteMusik meets TOMORROW Club” visitors of the Ruhr in Love will also have the chance to discover new floors like “Extra Bunt” or floor our “Infinity” stage!

With up to 400 artists all various types of the electronical music will be present and won´t leave anyone’s’ music preferences unsatisfied. Covering minmal up to hardtrance, or House up to Hardcore requires again a massive line up like “Disco Boys”, “Gestört aber geil”, “Pappenheimer”, “Rotterdam Terror Corps” or “DJ Thera”.

By staying true to their concept – the Ruhr in Love itself will be once again followed by more than 20 afterparties scattered around NRW. As in the past clubs like the Mikroport Club in Krefeld or even the Turbinhalle in Oberhausen will try to keep the party people awake till the next is dawning. But this year, we already mentioned, that something is different.

While the Ruhr in Love´s variety of sounds and styles has always been substantial, we always missed a dedicated floor only providing harder styles. Luckily the guys from Massive-Dynamic seemed to have the same feelings. Still boosted by their big success with the Radical Redemption World tour in Hamburg, these guys developed an impressive floor concept with a fine lineup, and confronted Hardstyle Mag for a collaboration at the very beginning of 2016.

The same type of passion and dedication lead to a successful application for a dedicated Hardstyle floor – named “Infinity” including an even more sophisticated lineup.

Therefore, in cooperation with Massive-Dynamic – HardstyleMag is proud to announce its first participation at the Ruhr in Love with an own stage – named “INFINITY” including an own afterparty at the Tentorium Duisburg on three floors.

The attentive readers among you, might already noticed a names from our huge line up! There is no reason to hold it back from you any longer.
