After a 10 year anniversary event last year, Rampage organisers have been working hard to make sure the 2020 edition, from 13-14 March in 2020, will be ‘bigger and better’.

Returning to the Belgian city of Antwerp, where it takes place at indoor venue Sportpaleis, the line-up this year features a headline show from Pendulum Trinity, which will be the first time the band have performed outside of the UK, and will be the only time they do so before summer.

In addition, Black Sun Empire, DJ Marky, a world-wide debut AV show from Virtual Riot, AC13 b2b Ben Snow b2b IndiKa, Eptic, SASASAS (Macky Gee, Phantasy, Skibadee, Shabba D, Harry Shotta), Camo&Krooked b2b Mefjus, Modestep Live, Kasra b2b Randall, Dirtyphonics live, Mvrda Infekt Samplifire, Koven and Matrix & Futurebound will all line up with more to come.

Rampage 2020’s production will feature animations, lights, visuals, and lasers so that the five acts who are bringing custom audio-visual shows have a platform to achieve ‘multi-sensory delights’.

This year for the first time, there will be an uninterrupted, unbroken back screen onto which visuals are displayed, making it the biggest ever for the venue, and the biggest of any screen ever used anywhere in the world.

Around 30,000 people attended the event this year from 55 countries. The man behind the event is Belgium’s DJ Murdock aka Hans Machiels, who has released on V Recordings, Hospital Records and whose latest album on Viper saw Mistajam select ‘Double Dutch’ as his self-certified dance anthem, while Annie Mac plucked ‘Different Way’ for her BBC show.

The Pendulum Trinity show, meanwhile, is billed as a ‘historic moment’ for drum & bass lovers. It finds the Australian outfit’s original trio of Rob Swire, Gareth McGrillen and El Hornet together on stage for only the second time in the last 10 years after their SW4 show.

Joining these legends will be another pioneer in the form of Brazilian boss man DJ Marky, who has long been a champion of the genre, with a Radio 1 residency, cult compilations for BBE, headline sets at the world’s biggest clubs and festivals and his own distinctive take on the genre.
