Everyone’s getting psyked for outdoor season but let’s not forget one especially exciting party that’s to be had on Saturday night at The Side Show. What’s all the hullabaloo about you ask? Well, Azax Syndrom is returning to the Cape of Good Dope (I mean hope). Don’t worry if you missed his mind blowing set at One World Festival (watch the video here), you can catch him live, loud and lucid this weekend. Find out all the event details here.
A little bit of background about the man behind the decks?
Like most of of the Psy Greats, Regev Azaria (AKA: Azax) is Israeli. His musical career began when he was a lead singer of a heavy metal group in the early 90’s. However, when he was introduced to electronic music and the psytrance culture, his fascination took over and so decided to start making his own music at the beginning of 2003.
The combination of Regev’s musical background with his psytrance influence is what gave birth to the banging beats of Azax Syndrome. Ever since, Azax has been touring the globe and playing at every significant stage and festival on the psy map. He has collaborated with top international DJs such as BLiSS, and continues to delight our ears with power trance that’s true to form.
One might call it power trance, but really it’s a roller-coaster ride consisting of high-energy, cutting edge sounds, heavy riffs, crisp metal melodies, pumping baselines and heavy beats, all ingeniously fused together.
So, get your trance boots ready because I have no doubt the dance floor’s going to be PUMPING. What’s a better way to warm up for The Sunflower Festival?
Doors open at 10 pm.

Everytime I watch this video, I have a little psygasm! Man, this guy is talented.
You’ll probably recognise this awesome remix of Knife Party‘s hit track, Internet Friends. I can’t wait to stomp to this live on Saturday.
