Igneon System explains the Heresy area at Ground Zero Festival 2017!
Igneon System is the industrial ambassador for Ground Zero Festival 2017 & he can’t wait for the 26th of August! We asked him what it’s like to be a host for Ground Zero & what you can expect at the Heresy stage! Check it out!
How were you asked to host?
It was a cloudy Tuesday morning, woke up, grabbed my morning coffee & opened my inbox.
There I saw I got this email from my beloved manager of Concrete Agency regarding Ground Zero. Another Festival option I thought, but when I read the email I got the proposal of being the industrial ambassador for this year. I was excited after reading it all because I finally get the chance to push my vision on a festival. So I didn’t hesitate a second. After some emails and discussing the conditions it got confirmed. After that I got in touch with the board of Ground Zero and we discussed my vision and my ideal line-up. Shortly after that it became official: a Heresy Stage at Ground Zero 2017!
How does it feel to be a hosting-partner?
For me it’s an honor to represent my beloved style “industrial” on a Dutch festival. After pushing this genre for more then 10 years in Belgium and abroad with concepts as MuSick, Elements Festival & Heresy im really excited to be a partner on one of the festivals, that booked me for the very first time in Holland. If I remember correctly, I have been a guest on this festival almost every year. So it feels kinda special to be honest. Loyalty always get rewarded!
How do you feel about the concept of Ground Zero this year?
I’m a true underground artist that came out of a time, when hardcore wasn’t that commercial at all. A time where I started to play on parties with multiple genres for several years. An environment where styles like Breakcore, tekno, dnb, uk hardcore, speed core, jungle came together on free parties, underground parking lots, little dirty rooms where everything was based on 1 thing, the freedom of the artist. It was rough, raw, diverse, original, but the most important factor of it all, it had an open-minded vibe. So you could say I came out of The Underworld of Hardcore. So, I feel really connected with this years concept and I can’t wait to bring this feeling back towards the people. It will definitely be interesting!
What can people expect from your stage?
If you know Heresy you know for what it stands for … Quality! I selected a Heresy Alliance for this year, that will be offering you this. You will experience a wide rang of tempos and styles. Styles as DnB, Crossbreed, Breakcore, Industrial & UK Hardcore will be presented towards you in combination with interesting combos. It will be a night for the dedicated people, but also for people that want to discover something new & fresh. If you never heard of Heresy, please visit us and get baptized. Don’t be shocked, you will feel a difference.. So be open minded and go with our flow, because there is more to discover in hardcore that you don’t hear everywhere.
Come meet the Heresy Family and you will have a unforgettable night, because everything we do is connected to our love for the music and the people that support us in every way! Are you with us?
