For two nights in March, Antwerps Sportpaleis unites thousands of drum&bass and dubstep fans for a tremendous party that has taken place annually since 2009. At first, Rampage was a one-night rave that lasted for 11-12 hours. Recently, the format has changed and the new editions now last an entire weekend. You may buy a ticket for both nights or for one night of your choice—Friday or Saturday. Additionally, for its 10th anniversary, the first Rampage Open Air Summer Festival was held in July 2019 in Kristalpark Lommel.
The lineup of the party does not seem to disappoint fans. Rampage has showcased DJ Murdock, Pendulum, Roni Size, Sigma, Sasasas, The Upbeats, Noisia, Chase & Status, Dirtyphonics, and plenty of other world-known DJs. They play non-stop in the Sportpaleis arena, a multipurpose hall that holds not only electro-music parties but also concerts, fairs, sports events, festivals, etc.
Rampage manages to gather around 30,000 people every year. The party is worth visiting not only because of its lineup and impressive scale but also because of the light show: the venue is full of screens that transmit visual effects.
