Trance Energy no longer Trance only?

A pity to read but several articles indicate that Trance Energy will no longer be pure Trance.

In 2011 the Trance Energy event will be named “Energy”.
The next edition will be kept on the 19th of February 2011.

  1. Following the road of Sensation then?

  2. Strange. It sold out these last few years, the name is famous, and there’s no other concept like it afaik. Weird move.

    BTW What’s that track in the clip? I believe it’s already known, but I can’t remember the title…

  3. What’s that track in the clip?

    Jochen Miller – Classified

  4. What the f?

    I have never wanted to believe that trance is dying, but seeing this it’s getting obvious. Trance Energy was the only concept of a festival with trance acts only.

    I don’t get it neither, as Alex said, it sold out every year so this decision seems to be senseless.

  5. Commercial wise I can understand them changing the name, trance energy hasn’t been about trance for a while now. For me it was getting too big and commercial anyways.. hate to be one of those nagging people talking about the commercialization of events.. but the crowd was mostly people who were going there because the rest of the people are, I name them TMF people (dutch know what I mean by that)

    Still.. it’s a shame. I think TE was my very first ‘big’ event ever, 1999 eindhoven & 1999 statenhal.. was awesome experience I’ll never forget. things were so basic and fun then 🙂

  6. aww… wtf?!
    there’s a lot of multi-genre events out there… as also there’s a lot of special house, minimal, dnb, techno, whatever based events… then we “lost” the biggest event of our genre wich didn’t care to say “I’m a trance event, read my name!”???

    that’s a shame… the organization just wants more money, ok, but they should create an “Energy Event” as they want and keep our “Trance Energy”.

    I used to dream that one day I would go to Trance Energy… but sadly I wo’nt 🙁

  7. F*cking unbelievable that this party stops, it’s a big big shame. I can’t believe it, I was preparing on the next TE, because TE 2010 was so great. A&B were the best there, and it was just massive.

  8. noobs.

    just look at the purple + green dots at the bottom.

  9. if TE gonna turn out exactly like sensation white then it will be too boring for trance lovers to attend the event or to listen the live broadcast on satellite or radios.

  10. LOL so fucking ghey!

    RIP trance energy!

  11. i cannot believe this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. WHAT THE FUCK

    You have got to be kidding. Been waiting for fucking years to go to this party, and now they come up with this? :/ This is ridiculous. It can’t have anything to do with money, it’s been sold out for a good 5 years in a row.

    FFS 🙁

  13. It did not sell out last year tho…

    greedy mother fu….

  14. Idiots. I hope the trance die-hards stay at home and it will only be half-filled…

    Seriously, fucking idiots.

  15. LOL, TE 2010 was pretty much pops, so here you have it.

    Blame armin and other shitty shows for that

  16. The anthem:

    [YT]VHazii-wCNg[/YT]

  17. That being the anthem says enough for me. That aint trance. Absolute idiots!

  18. I’m with Wesley on this one. It was becoming commercialized and there was barely any music I liked when I attended in 2009 and 2010. 5 stages and most played the same god damn tunes. That’s really really boring if you ask me.

    Would be good with some change and I couldn’t care less if they remove the “Trance” in “Trance Energy” as long as they come up with a better event. I do hope Luminosity will continue with their ‘Before The Energy’ parties though.

    I find it funny that people come up with such strong reactions when they haven’t even been there. Obviously there is some speculating, but you cannot blame them for doing that. They are in a business with huge risk of losing tonnes of money and if they want to continue to remain succesful, they have to do something and think about the future. They are a business – don’t forget that!

  19. TE 2008 was the best, in terms of music.

  20. Have never been on Trance Energy so I personally don’t care it is Trance Energy or just Energy. It’s a classic business decision just like Krisa said. Big money is involved here.

  21. great news since this “new trance” has actually nothing to do with the true trance music format :bg:

  22. Oh dear… the anthem is just bad 🙁

    Been there in the good years [2005 , 2007] .. enjoyed 2005 more than 2007 though. If the last few editions were almost sold out, why changing things? I’m not sure if 2010 was sold out or not? Or were the sales just dissapointing?

  23. 2010 wasn’t sold out and that might have been a sign. Trance has got a bit stale, and if Wesley is right about the amount of TMF types who attends the event, then that surely isn’t good – what I mean by that is if this event is commercial or mainstream and still not able to sell out an event, then that is a pretty bad sign.

    At the end of the day, people should wait to see what will happen imo. It might be an improvement 🙂

      Last year wasn’t sell out because these fucking idiots organized TE during the Easter weekend.

  24. Someone of ID-T staff told me this:

    Pixie Beau Hi Jordi,
    there will be ONLY trance at Energy, we have only changed the name of the event.

    Kind regards,
    Pixie Beau
    ID&T

    A quote from trance.nu

    apparently just a name change according to ID&T

  25. http://www.nu.nl/muziek/2339322/trance-energy-gaat-verder-als-energy.html

    It’s official .. called “Energy” instead of Trance Energy now.

  26. Good thing: they finally can invite Tiësto again :x_we:

  27. OHNOOOOOOOOOES :sad2: BIG disappointment here … why why why.. now i will never see Trance Energy … ok guys the best years of trance energy are officially over

  28. That is the milestone of dying trance.

  29. can’t believe it. rip TE :sad2:

  30. WTF??? :tuktuk:

    Just when I was preparing to attend such an event!!! Can’t believe!!!! 😥

    I was going to make the trip to Holland n 2011 but now……Im shocked. :sad2:However TE tended to go outside trance since 2007 as their last 3 TE anthems were absolute crap.

    • their last 3 TE anthems were absolute crap.

      Thrill and L.E.D. there be light are great… even maybe the best.

      Anyw lets see how it goes this year, and hope its just a simple change of the name

        Anyw lets see how it goes this year, and hope its just a simple change of the name

        So I think that new ‘Energy’ event will be for You.

        For me – even 2005 edition was crap (because not broadcasted ;pp). The best were 2002 and 2004 (Gielen’s set from TE 2004… one of the best sets ever!).

        When TranceFix was only a forum I told in one topic that trance is dying and almost everybody wwere not agreed with me. Look what it happens now. Trance will become more underground (i mean that REAL TRANCE, not high-contrast shits) and that’s fine. I don’t need trance in a radio. I don’t need trance in tv. I need it in my HDD, a then in my mind ;}

        PS. There was an announcement of this – look what’s happend with comsic gate, rank 1, and other good producers, who changes their style into a light-almost-house-shit :f

          i agree with you mate, but trance will never die for who really love !

  31. WTF!! :@:@:@:@:@:@:@

    my dream of attending trance energy and the love parade is now officially dead :S:S:S what’s next :@ :S

  32. Really really looking forward to seeing the line-up now. That ^ is the second time an ID&T member says it willstay trance-only. That is, of course, wonderful news. I just hope they stick to their word and don’t overdo the “diversity” as they themselves called it. Trance, like every other genre, is undergoing changes. As long as they mean changes within trance music itself that’s cool 🙂

  33. :sad2: what a hell ? Trance Energy i will never forget ! the only and the best Trance event ever made !:yes_new:

  34. Just when i was planning to go next year..it would’ve been my first TE ever..pity.
    This won’t lead to any good..but will wait and will see.At least they can do trance and other genres in different stages..

  35. Μαλάκηδες!!! Trance energy is the holy grail of trance music. You just can’t stop it!!! Enough with the multi-genre events. we want out Home BACK!!!!!

  36. If it’s a name change, why take out the “Trance” in “Trance Energy” if it’s staying all trance?

    IMO “Trance Energy” has a better ring to it.

      it will not be just a name change.

      They want to add more genres into the event.

      eventually you will listen to rank1 on the main stage and Justin Bieber on the other. :icon_lol:

        Great quote! 😀

  37. trance events havent been trance events for years now… you guys need to stop lying to yourselves.. like wes said, it stopped being about the music YEARS ago, its more about being seen at a trance event than actually caring about the music

    • trance events havent been trance events for years now… you guys need to stop lying to yourselves.. like wes said, it stopped being about the music YEARS ago, its more about being seen at a trance event than actually caring about the music

      Yeah, but some of us still go there for the music. :/ What a ridiculous reply.

  38. I’m a bit sad to listen that, also because I’ve never attended to TE. Knowing that I won’t be able to do that in the future… well, it sucks! 🙁

  39. I think there won’t be too much changes musically (as id&t says)…. People forget that this event was called Energy already before they changed it to Trance Energy…. 🙂 For example the Tiesto 2000 “Trance Energy” set is actually from “Energy 2000” :). In other words, TE isnt actually dead…. :).

  40. yeah Energy will continue to be Trance Only, re-confirmed via twitte: http://twitter.com/energynetwork_/status/25508461665

  41. Now check out this video and please post comments there!

    And join this group were we all discuss this idiot decision by ID&T (Idiots Did That):

  42. I guess it wasn’t done on purprose but I do think that if they program a pure trance line-up next year then many trance fans will get the feeling to visit the party before its RIP.

    • Ulysses Van Dessel

      The only replies that ID&T don’t answer or tell anything…is just a corporate answer.
      And i don’t trust them.
      If the event was quality and sold out the tickets as it was named, then. Why to change its name? There’s obviusly a reason, and i explain it in the next lines:

      Trance Energy—> Energy—> Top 40 Energy

      Last year wasn’t sell out because these fucking idiots organized TE during the Easter weekend.

      Also don’t forget the economic reccesion.

  43. Recession –> True, especially looking to all the foreign people visiting TE. Especially for them it’s a quit expensive trip.

  44. Yeah and It’s not worth anymore spending all that money

  45. 🙁 I’m very sad

  46. Meh that sucks, was planning to go this year. Although it’s nice to read it will stay ‘Trance’. Would like to see the line-up. 🙂

  47. a sign petition? against the changing

  48. why don’t you all wait for the line-up?
    this could be interesting after all 🙂
