The Pacific Northwest's Favorite Medieval Themed Rave Returns!
Born in 2015, and marking the return of Wizard Events shows, Fired Up was an instant classic, and has become the flagship show for the company.

--Featuring the amazing talents of--


Starkiss or Joseph Starkey, has been dedicated to the sounds since he was spinning in his room at age 15. Soon enough, He landed his first gig before he was even old enough to get into some of the clubs he was playing. By 2007, Starkiss began landing gigs all over the US and Canada. He quickly teamed up with Ravers Only in New York becoming a familiar face on hardcore lineups throughout the northeast. In 2010, Starkiss started releasing his first tunes, some of which topped online download charts, and were featured on BBC Radio One. As he continued to push his DJ skills and production, Starkiss became a driving force behind the crews that he represented, going the extra distance to help host events and organize bookings. With years of experience behind the scenes, he decided to step up to manage his own event in 2014, flying under the banners of Ravers Only. His tracks have been featured in a number of compilations, including, This Is Powerstomp Volume 2, Future Generation Of Hardcore 2, Does It Sound Good At 170, Future Hardcore Classics 8, Hardcore Addiction 6 and A number of the Hardcore Heaven Albums. Expect more big things from this kid I don't see him stopping anytime soon and now with the world famous UK label Lethal Theory backing him only time can tell what else he has up his sleeve for this rave scene.

:::::DJ Candy Kid:::::

Native Belarusian and long-time Brooklynite, Slava a.k.a. Candy Kid has been tearing up dance floors across the United States and Canada with his unique style and adrenaline-packed sets of Happy Hardcore, Gabber, DnB, Breakbit, and Acid & Euro-Trance since 2001.
Slava originally got into electronic music while living in Minsk back in '93 listening to Marusha, Blumchen, Scooter, WestBam, DJ Hooligan, Das Modul, Dune, Charlie Noise & Mental Theo, Red 5 and Brooklyn Bounce. After his uncle had taught him to dejay at a young age, Slava was able to pursue his dreams of putting smiles on faces and making dance floors shake once he moved to New York City and was able to buy records and dejay equipment.
You can retrace Candy Kid's first dejay set back to NYC's Halloween 2001. Since then, Slava has torn up American dance floors from east coast to west coast (and everywhere between), plays Canada on a yearly basis, and makes fans groove worldwide. He had shared the stage with producers such as GRiZ, Hixxy, Brisk, Impact, Mark Smith, Angerfist, Joey Riot, Kurt, Robbie Long, S3RL, Sc@r, Pikey, and many other legendary producers and dejays.
Slava is currently the owner of New York City's only Happy Hardcore recording label Galaxy Express Recordings, which launched in 2009. In January 2014, Slava also co-founded his first original production project Apocalypse Friends, who's music is a lethal concoction of hardcore, DnB, and trance with classical piano, Nintendocore, and ska. Along with his apocalypse friend Maria Flux, the duo has released an entirely original album.
Many people wonder why Slava picked the dejay name Candy Kid. The real story behind the name goes back to when Slava was growing up in Belarus, and he ate so much candy he earned the nickname Sweet-Tooth. Before arriving in America, he had never heard of kandi/kandi-kids (etc). While a lot of people think he chose the name Candy Kid because of its social reception, the name is as simple as syrup -- Slava loves sugar.
But don't let the name fool you - Candy Kid can throw down some hard and dirty beats, showing you that even the sweetest people have a dark-side. Fueling the crowd with happiness and providing an outlet for self-expression is always the biggest reward for Slava. His infections love and endless energy are what truly defines Candy Kid.

:::::K-zar & Bouncy:::::

DJ K-zar has been a staple in the Seattle Hard Dance music scene for over a decade. Specializing in hard, fast beats ranging from the lighter, commercial side of Hard Dance to it's darker, dirtier counterpart, he has continued to showcase his love to let the music take control, and get your feet moving on the dance floor! Originating his DJ career in the legendary Seattle Club Motor, he has since been able to spread his unique sound across countless stages, spanning different states. Having humble beginnings in classic trance and uk Hard house, his yearning for a more dynamic sound led him to discover an eternal love for Hands Up Trance(Kandi Trance). Not forgetting his hard house origins, he soon began to create a unique blend of both Hands Up Trance, and Hard Dance Music that has now become his signature sound. Though the names and the faces in the crowd change, his hard fast music, and epic classic anthems have endured the test of time, bringing both new and old fans together as they rock the night away!


Dj Bouncy is Seattle's original Hands Up Dj! He started partying back in 2000 and his first rave he attended was Freaknight at the old Expo Center. He was a frequent partier and could be seen at all the local venues like Naf, The Hall, FX, and others. Around the fall of 2004 he picked up his first turntables and fell in love with djing immediately. Ever since then he could not stop spinning. He messed around with a few genres like Hard Trance and UK Hard House before he discovered Hands Up! He loved Hands Up because it combined the hard beats of UK Hard House with the cheesey melodies and sing a longness of Happy Hardcore into one powerful genre. He often like to refer to Hands Up as "Kandi Trance" a term he made up that he thought best described the sound. He got his first gig at FX (then called Studio B) and played at Black Out 3. Ever since then he has been a regular part of Seattle's scene and can be seen at many local events monthly.

Expect only greatness.
