Great doc.
15 November 2019 | by wouterfrisoSee all my reviews

There are a few documentaries about the upcoming of house music (Pre EDM) in the Netherlands. It's quite amazing to see that so many Dutch dj's are currently playing the world's stage. This is Leading back to the first and only sub-culture founded in the Netherlands a decade ago: hardcore techno, or gabber as you wish.

The documentary "Thunderdome never dies" follows the story of the people behind the rise of a cult-status event: the Thunderdome raves. As a few young guys in 1992, only in their twenties starting organising parties, the scene grew and became more and more massive over time. Tens of thousands of ravers joined together in these eardrum pounding raves.

And it all stopped.

But being a subculture, Thunderdome lived on in the hearts and minds of its fans. Which (with the risk of writing a understatement) are in love with the brand, the scene and everything that comes with it. Even today people get the Thunderdome insignia tatoed to their bodies. No wonder the latest event hosting a massive 50.000 (!) bold headed ravers was sold out within a few hours.

So what is Thunderdome you say? It's the techno version of Punk: it's a cult, its endless dancing, and most of all it's not giving a **** about what everybody says.

And that's exactly what bonds all those gabbers together.
