Nothing gets as wild as Defqon. 1  at the place where it all started: the Netherlands.

Defqon. 1 is arguably the world’s top hardstyle festival, and since its origin, has spawned editions in Australia and Chile. With an ardent fan following across all the hard genre variants, Defqon. 1 has seen some crazy footage in the past, and this year has some great videos too. The festival was filled with its moments, the most notable one being Headhunterz’s well-received surprise appearance at Defqon. 1 along with his extremely emotional speech.

Without further ado, here are the videos from this year’s edition!

1. Angerfist absolutely annihilated the crowd at Defqon. 1, along with Partyraiser. 


2. Headhunterz made his return to Defqon. 1, and hardstyle, worth it.

3. Defqon. 1 kept their online fraternity on their toes with their FOMO-inducing Day Reports on YouTube.

4. A little blurry, but how about that epic endshow?

5. The Gatherings was massive in their own right.



6. Bass Modulators killed it at Defqon. 1 this year, and here’s the crowd reaction to prove it!

Defqon. 1 proved once again why it is the hardstyle abode of the world, and we just cannot wait for next year’s edition.
