Prepare yourself with the ultimate Dominator survival-guide for 2019
The countdown to the world’s biggest hardcore festival has officially started. To make sure you’re absolutely prepared we assembled the ultimate Dominator Festival survival guide, which contains 11 essential tips for visiting this grand hardcore festival.
Tip 1: Take your earplugs with you
When you visit Dominator, there’s no doubt about it someone’s going to yell “DOMINATOOOOOOR!” in your face (or the cameraman’s face) about 40 times a day. Therefore it might be time to dive into your closet and to find your earplugs, since your vulnerable ears definitely have a lot coming their way.
Tip 2: Don’t forget your Air Max
Besides Dominator being the world’s biggest hardcore event, there is probably no other place on this globe where you’ll find so many Air Max. Dominator offers no less than 7 stages, so you’ll definitely want to make this day a personal record of doing laps. In order to achieve this, of course you reach out for help from your good old Air Max.
Tip 3: Bring your swimming clothes
One of the best tips is to put on your swimsuit underneath your party outfit. Dominator often has extremely high temperatures, which means taking a swim will make you a very happy raver.
Tip 4: Take a look at the motorcross riders
Even though a festival ticket for Dominator Festival is very expensive, you get loads of entertainment in return. Each year Dominator has a different theme, but the motocross riders are always there to provide you with a beautiful show. ‘A quick rest’ when you have to catch your breath has never had such a great view, since you get to enjoy the motocross riders jump ramps with backflips everywhere.
Tip 5: Work on your language skills at Dominator
If you want to make some new friends at Dominator, you will definitely have to work on your languages. Every single year, countless of foreigners visit the hardcore festival: from the Italian to Spaniards and from Germans to the Australian. Of course you’ll have to be able to ask them politely if they want to take down all of those flags, so you can actually see the mainstage. ¿Por qué?
Tip 6: You can’t be too careful for the sun
Even though it will look like you’re getting a tan, don’t fall for it: this is the E3-Beach and you will definitely lose this golden tint in the shower. Since Dominator takes place in the midst of summer and you want your body to last all day long, it is very important to have sunscreen. Especially when tons of flames are flying around in front of the mainstage!
Tip 7: Don’t wear your most expensive clothes
Besides a good amount of hardcore music, you’ll also get to enjoy a lot of sand at Dominator.
If you don’t want to throw all of your best clothes away, you might want to leave these clothes at home. Of course you can also just do exactly the opposite, since Dominator is the hardcore event of the year and you want to go there in style no matter the costs.
Tip 8: Make sure you eat and drink enough
Eat a pizza, order a coke: just make sure you eat enough salty food and you stay nice and hydrated. You will please absolutely no one when you feel sick and have to sit down, since you could also use this precious time to enjoy a set. Take care of yourself and your friends and enjoy the day.
Tip 9: Fuck the fireworks stage
Dominator is known for its gigantic endshow with lots of fireworks, many people will look forward to this. But not terror DJ’s Drokz and Akira, for many years they have there own closing show at the terror stage: ‘Fuck the Fireworks’. You can only find the real die hards here who wants a hard closing.
Tip 10: Take Monday off
Dominator is the world’s greatest hardcore festival. Countless of your favorite DJs, beautiful weather and grand stages will make this one of the best (if not the absolute very best) days of the year. So, take Monday off and make sure you find yourself in front of the gates of Dominator at 11:00 on the 20th of July!
Tip 11: Close the event in style and book one of the Hotel Packages
When you have been partying non-stop for 12 hours, and you’re leaving the festival with heavy legs and especially a heavy heart, it’s time for the tiring journey home. To make this as comfortable as possible, Dominator offers Hotel Packages to all people: within minutes, you’ll be able to reminisce about this beautiful day in a hotel bed.
