After a spectacular farewell to Knockout Circuz in 2017, Harder Styles United (HSU) is returning to Sydney this December to present an entirely new Knockout concept. Since its first edition in 2012, Knockout has been putting Australia on the map with the biggest indoor harder styles music festival in the Southern Hemisphere! The one-day event has attracted thousands of ravers from all over the world with its consistently impressive international lineups and world-class productions to match. HSU recently announced their new Knockout concept: Games of Destiny, and promises to deliver their biggest production to date!
HSU has an impressive history of bringing the biggest and best names down under and this year’s edition of Knockout is already living up to the hype. Here are the top five artists I’m excited to see at this year’s edition of Knockout.
D-BLOCK & S-TE-FAN
The first warriors to enter the Games of Destiny are none other than Dutch duo D-Block & S-te-Fan. The duo will be returning down under this December to make yet another unforgettable appearance at Knockout. Their unmistakable melodic sound has brought them great success with a large, dedicated fan base all over the world. Check out their most popular track below.
