After more than 7 years on the job, Nocturnal Commissions is a name known around the globe amongst hardcore DJs, promoters, and ravers.  But for all our global travels, Toronto will always be home to us. You’ve built an incredible community of hardcore ravers, and we are very proud to be a part of it.

So, in true Nocturnal Commissions fashion, we decided to celebrate that community the best way we know how - with a kick-ass hardcore rave! So on Sunday, September 2nd - the Labour Day long weekend! - join us as we celebrate the happiest, friendliest, most ridiculously ravetastic group of ravers in the world with a rave that’s all about YOU!

We’ll be giving you each Nocturnal Commissions rave books to sign and share, reviving an old rave tradition for a new generation and giving you each the chance to get to know one another a little bit better and build memories that will last forever.

You’ll also have the chance to be a part of a raver gift exchange - bring something to contribute to the exchange, and you’ll receive a ticket. Later on, we’ll give everyone with a ticket one of the gifts that was contributed.

And of course, it being a Nocturnal Commissions event, there might be a surprise or two waiting in the wings. You just never can tell....

No celebration would be complete without a full ensemble of bouncy, energetic, danceable music, so we’ve assembled another collection of world-class performers for your enjoyment, bringing you Happy Hardcore, Ravebreaks, Drum’n’Bass, and more!



NEFTI (Poland)
- Intensive Recordings

We’ve always known that Nefti’s distinctive style of bouncy, high-energy ravebreaks would be the perfect match for our high-energy Nocturnal Commissions ravers, and we are extremely proud to feature his first North American appearance ever!

RIZE (Arizona) -  Evilkandee and Super Science

Rize is one of North America’s most dedicated happy hardcore producers and performers, and his infectious grin and cheerful melodies will make you feel right at home on the dancefloor - where we all belong!

MindTransit - Intensive Recordings, Intellegenix Records,

Dynamic b2b Polaris - Nocturnal Commissions, Occupy Wall Street, Switch Productions

Flyboy b2b Xphox - Daydream Productions, Nocturnal Commissions

Ahoy, NC ravers! Atomic Lollipop is fast approaching, and we are once again going to be bringing you a slammin' lineup of musical acts from around the world!

Of course, APop is about a lot more than just music, so you're also going to find an even higher level of ridiculous chaotic awesomeness than you did last year! Head on over to to check out the constantly expanding array of programming and to buy your tickets. Early bird tickets have been extended by a week, so you have until June 17th to get your tickets at the reduced price - you'll get a bonus BBQ on Saturday if you get your tix during the early bird period (that includes anyone who already bought tickets, too).

Nocturnal Commissions is world-renowned for interactive events, so we're especially pleased to announce that in addition to contributing our experience to the musical stage and running panels on introductions to DJing and event promotion, we'll also be presenting an interactive quest experience - you'll need all your courage, wisdom, and power to triumph, so bring everything you've got!

See you there!
