To put it plainly, Neophyte’s energetic and rough productions, as well as insane antics on stage allowed this unique act to spark interest in the Gabber community. Rising to stardom at lightning speed, by the end of the 90’s the trio had countless bookings under their belt. Performing at the most illustrious event concepts of that time, Neophyte sent crowds into a frenzy at Thunderdome, Mysteryland, A Nightmare in Rotterdam, Megarave, Masters of Hardcore and several other popular events of that era.
Hardcore was growing at lightning speed and so was Neophyte, who was awarded with a schedule that exploded with back-to-back bookings. With his name on the bill for prestigious events such as Masters of Hardcore, Defqon.1, Hardcore4Life, Mindcontroller, Decibel Outdoor Festival, Back2school, Q-BASE, Bassrulers and many more, the most significant booking arrived in 2007, which saw Neophyte having the honour to perform at Q-dance’s emblematic event Qlimax, which was held in the colossal GelreDome in Arnhem. For a Hardcore artist, performing in front of over 20,000 visitors at the mysterious Qlimax.
