Watch the magnificent endshow for Defqon.1
For the hardstyle community, Defqon.1 is a sacred gathering. Each year, the Dutch festival draws some 60,000 fans to experience the raw catharsis of a hardstyle-centric lineup and witness the stupendous visual productions put forth by event producers Q-Dance. Indeed, the event is so important to those in the community, that prodigal hardstyle pioneer Headhunterz announced he would be returning his focus to the genre after this year’s installment.
Over time, the festival’s Saturday “endshow” has become its most hallowed tradition, featuring some of the world’s most ornate pyrotechnics, electrifying lasers, and tremendous firework arrangements. The Defqon.1 endshow is consistently one of dance music’s most overpowering visual displays, and has managed to top itself on an annual basis. Regardless of one’s preference for hardstyle, the staggering spectacle of the event’s conclusive performance warrants a viewing.
