Defqon 1. rivals top festival production around the globe with impecible closing ritual
Massive Netherlands based music festival Defqon 1. unleashed some breathtaking scenery this past weekend. The “hard” genred festival which took place in beautiful Biddinghuizen, from June 22nd – 24th undoubtably lit up the the weekend providing some of the best pyrotechnics and main stage production the 2018 summer festival circuit has seen.
As the weekend wound down, the festivals annual closing ritual left fellow party-goers and festival attendees alike in awe as the massive fireworks display drew a close to the weekends festivities. The festival put on by Q-Dance featured some of the worlds top billed hardstyle, hard-trance, and hard-house acts including Headhunterz, Wildstylez, Noisecontrollers, Code Black, D-Block & S-te-Fan, Max Enforcer and plenty more. The festival is certainly a ravers delight, taking genre to the extreme in every facet. While there are other locations for Defqon 1.’s incredible display including both Australia and Chile, the festivals staple location in Biddinghuizen has seen a massive rise in attendance over the years.
From 2016 to 2017 the festival saw a massive increase in festival goers who attended the global juncture. Although not quite to the commercialized popularity level of Ultra Music Festival and or Tomorrowland, Defqon 1. sports roughly the same attendance numbers as these festivals pulling close to 75,000 to 125,000 individuals for a weekend. The sheer scale of the festivals attendance put it amongst some of the top attended music festivals across the face of the globe and that’s certainly something to take in.
Moving forward for Q-Dance it’s all about maintaining and with their subsequent festivals in both New South Wales, Australia and Santiago Providence, Chile, the already global festival should see a continued global growth. However, the main item of discussion continues to focus around Defqon 1.’s mind-boggling closing ritual and whereas Ultra may not hold a light to Defqon 1 in the court of popularity, they certainly challenge when it comes to production.
