HTID: Hardstyle, Happy Hardcore and More!

HTID (Hardcore Til I Die), an internationally known two-day Hardcore music festival, will be here in Phoenix next weekend (October 9-10). Unlike the name suggests, hardcore isn’t the only genre that is played at this weekender. The event will feature two stages in two different rooms. On both nights, the main stage (HTID Arena) will feature Hardcore artists from the UK, Australia, Japan, Sweden and Canada. The other stage, which is the focus of this article, will be different on Friday and Saturday night.

On Friday night, the secondary stage’s theme is “Old Skool Til I Die” and will feature 90s hardcore and early rave music. These artists are pretty much all legends to be sure to check them out and figure out which sets are must-sees before you head to the show.
