Important: weather forecast & precautions

The Dominator build up is in full progression and we’re getting close to the kick-off this Saturday! As usual, temperatures will rise high during Dominator, but this year we also expect some rain. Below you’ll find more information about the weather forecast and our advised precautions. Please read it carefully and forward it to your Dominator crew.

Weather forecast

Like we’re used to, temperatures will rise high during Dominator. Unfortunately, unlike we’re used to, we also expect changeable weather this year. Sun might shine, some rain might drop. Make sure you’re prepared for both types of weather.

Clothing advice

Got your summery Dominator outfit ready for weeks already and been looking forward to wear it since then? Good news: no need to change it! Just make sure to bring a rain coat as well, and something warm for the evening hours and your way back home.

There will be enough lockers available to store your belongings.

Sun protection

Make sure to protect yourself against the sun. Bring your sunglasses, get out of the sun every now and then and make sure to wear sunscreen. Visit the (free) Dominator sunscreen bar by the The Dutch Cancer Society or bring your own unopened sunscreen. Opened sunscreen bottles or tubes aren’t allowed.

Indoor areas and shelters

5 out of 7 areas at Dominator are indoor. The two outdoor stages are the Dominator mainstage and the raw hardstyle stage. Use the floorplan in the Dominator app, or the one handed out at the entrance, to locate all areas.

Next to the indoor areas, you’ll find multiple shelters all over the Dominator terrain.

LED info screens

Please keep a close eye on our LED info screens during the day. Important updates about the upcoming weather will be displayed on this screens.

Say ‘YES, I do’ at Dominator

Each year we get tons of requests from true hardcore lovebirds about marriage proposals and weddings during Dominator. This year, we can finally say “YES WE DO!”. Our brand-new wedding chapel will be waiting for you on the beach of Domination…

You can bring all your hardcore friends as your witnesses! But don’t worry, you don’t have to get a Dominator ticket for your parents because you won’t get officially married. That’s why you can ‘marry’ with your lover, party mate, a DJ or the toilet lady (we don’t care who!). You also don’t need to get yourself a wedding dress or suit, because we will take care of that. At the chapel you gather with your friends, or just random hardcore strangers, put on wedding gear and our master of ceremony will get you “married”. Afterwards you may, or may not, kiss each other and slip on the rings. You will get your own Dominator wedding certificate AND.. you just got married at Dominator!

Who will be your life long hardcore soulmate?
