After Diskopantera, we headed back to Chilling Square Stage and Bondax was playing. The duo really spiced the night with entire set. Zimmer came next. His set was beast. Played some dark track with heavy bass kicks in. Near of his set, Bondax and FKJ joined Zimmer on stage. Even Bondax decided to have quick B2B performance with Zimmer.
Day 1 at Chiiling Square Stage closed with Indra7 and Apsara performance. This duo delivered dark tracks from Techno and Progressive genres. Their performance made everybody couldn’t stop dancing. What a perfect performance to close the night.
Roni Joni and Attila Syah came up next. They delivered tracks that really set the mood of the crowd to go party hard. LTN and Marquee took over the deck and didn’t hold back. They continued to keep the mood of the crowd in high level.
Khomha perform next and delivered high energy set. Not once he slowed down the tempo. When Gareth Emery came on stage after Khomha, we were impressed his diverse set. Such a surprise he played new remix of “God Is A Girl” from Groove Coverage. Brought some nostalgic feeling.
Will Atkinson and Standerwick first time perform together in Indonesia and we anticipated strong Tech Trance performance. They didn’t disappoint us and delivered high energy track after track. The night closed by Fadi of Aly & Fila.
HYPE Music Asia and HYPE Festival stepped up their game by making the festival into 2 days and 3 stages. We took a glimpse at other stage. The main stage, Frozen Galaxy, was a huge construction and the DJ booth decorated with astronaut figure. Arctic Diamond stage served as transit stage for crowd walking from Chilling Square to Frozen Galaxy.
While waiting for the performing artists, people can spend their time with various games in numerous booth by sponsors. Crowd also can write down their wish list DJ they want to see next year.
For the venue itself, well our only problem with Allianz Ecopark is the contour of the land. At Arctic Diamond, for example, the contour not smooth and made people hard to dance and jump around, in case they will fall or even injured.
Rita Ora is quite refreshing lineup this year. Regardless of the majority of wish list that asked for another performance from Martin Garrix next year, we do hope organizer can gives us new and diverse artists from any genres.
See you next year at another edition of SHVR Ground Festival!
