Here at DUBSTEP FBI, it's our mission to put on the underground. And that's exactly what this Storm Stage lineup does. Come early and stay late, the Storm Stage will run from 18:00-01:00 on Thursday.


Headliner Riot Ten is no stranger to raving in Belgium. He's played consecutive years and doesn't plan on slowing down any time soon.




"Playing in Europe is always so much fun," Riot Ten said. "The energy they bring is always on point. I am honored to have played Belgium every year for the past three years, now four."

What makes this festival so unique is that fans can catch never-before-seen sets. These are sets you just won't see in America, and sets that really solidify Rampage as one of the greatest dubstep and drum 'n bass brands in the world.


"Rampage prioritises putting together sets that make sense and are exciting musically, instead of pandering to a lot of the same political nonsense that plagues the American festival circuit," SweetTooth said.


The Madcore b2b SweetTooth set summarizes just that. It's a nod to the artists who keep their noses on the grindstone, the artists who bring their authentic selves into every single performance. Madcore and SweetTooth both said that fans can expect an obnoxious, stand-up comedy riddim set that may even feature someone shirtless.


"In summer 2023, during Sweettooth's Europe tour, he stayed over at my apartment for a week in between shows," Madcore said. "We spent the entire week in the gym and studio, and somehow managed to finish four original tunes... Aside from being an amazing collaborator, I also consider him one of my best friends in the scene, and finally we get to showcase our music and friendship on stage."

Both Madcore and SweetTooth are what we call "FBI alumni," artists who have been featured on guest mixes, interviews and countless other FBI content pieces. Madcore was featured on episode 089 of Riot Control Radio, while we have also interviewed SweetTooth on the Filthy Beat Inspectors Podcast, where he talked about dub plate culture and riddim history.


Another showcase artist is Nimda, who recently got his U.S. visa and has been touring around the states with Kai Wachi. This will be his sophomore year performance at Rampage Open Air.



"I am absolutely buzzin to be back at Rampage Open Air again, especially as this time I have more than 24 hours notice (lol)," Nimda said. "Last time was last minute, so I had pretty much zero preparation for that set. This time, I will ensure that my set is exactly what Rampage deserves."

On the flip side, a young artist who is making their Rampage debut is Astaroth. This is a special set for him because Rampage was the first show he attended just last year after he turned 16 years old.


"I am super excited to showcase my sound at such a large venue," Astaroth said. "In my opinion, Rampage Open Air is so special because of the community and atmosphere, it’s a place where all of your friends can get together and rage to some dubstep."


He said that fans can expect a set consisting of mostly originals, sprinkled in with some unreleased from his extremely talented producer friends.


One of the powerhouse women performing on the stage is  īnkūbe. She performed a techno set at Rampage Open Air last year during the pre-party, and did a. b2b with Trypog at the DubstepFrance campsite. She said that Rampage Open Air brings the excitement a child feels when going to Disneyland.



"There's no limit to the creativity of a DJ set as long as there's the coherence of the mix and a good selection," īnkūbe said. "I'm now working on integrating live vocals into my DJ sets... I've got a few collabs on the go that should be ready for ROA."


Rampage is also known for showcasing some of the scene's GOATs. One of those artists is Point.Blank, who will be performing a solo set chock full of unreleased for his third year at Rampage Open Air. He grew up in Belgium, so this festival's roots grow deep in his heart.


"I had one of the most memorable moments in my career at Rampage Open Air in 2019 when P0gman and I opened up the dubstep stage and filled the room up in less than 30 seconds," Point.Blank said. "That was one of the best experiences ever. Literally shed a tear As soon as we were done and saw that footage."

We have a hunch this year's performance may bring tears of happiness, yet again.


Another bass babe, Elle Rich, will be making an appearance for her second year in a row. She's been on our radar as of late and recently dropped her debut EP, 'SLICE OF LIFE'. Don't miss her set!



"Last year was EPIC and I can’t wait to do it again. The people at Rampage are on some next level energy and the vibes are amaaazing," said ELLE RICH. "It feels like a big happy bass family."

So there you have it. Don't miss the Dubstep FBI's first stage takeover at the biggest drum n bass and dubstep party in the universe.


See you in the pits.
