The Gathering 2011 - Partly Cloudy opening show

At 8PM we hit the lightswitch and start creating the magical atmosphere that is The Gathering. Watch out for the occational lightning bolt, or sudden outbursts of clouds that shouldn't be where they just popped up. Start heading for the stage to receive a touch of crucial information, not to mention tons of heavy, pumping and awesome music!


Da Tweekaz @ The Gathering 2011

This year's TG will kick off with a heavy harstyle set, performed by two of Norway's finest at this sound. Accompanied by a mindblowing lasershow, the dudes of Da Tweekaz will pump out a fuming, heavy and hard set of raw hardstyle. Well known for their passion for the 8bit-sound - we feel theese guys will hit the average TG-participants right where they'll feel it. Their music has been played by some of the world's most famous hardstyle DJ's, such as Coone, Tatanka, Brennan Heart, Isaac etc. Beeing the only signed Norwegian hardstyle act, and having produced this years Hardstyle DNA anthem, we're sure they'll be a success.

Check out Da Tweekaz on Spotify and Youtube while waiting for easter ;)

We're also proud of supporting "our own" on their way to world domination. With 5 years as participants at TG behind them, we feel it's time to move their sounds from the floor and up to the mainstage.



OVRPWR is a promising up and coming electronic/pop-rock act which started their career at The Gathering, when they won the High Quality Music compo at The Gathering 2010. The band was started by Alexander Odden, aka Flipside, and Andreas Groth. At The Gathering 2011 they'll be accompanied by a full band. Their music may remind you of Pendulum and other world famous DnB-, Dubstep-, Trance- and House bands.
