Exclusive Interview: Hardwell opens up in one of his last interviews before retirement


This year’s Parookaville festival was – once again – a simply sensational event. Packed with the greatest names in the electronic scene, the German event continues to grow year upon year, bringing a wealth of dance music’s elite to Weeze for the weekend. Few artists boast a bigger reputation within the genre than Hardwell, and the DJ Mag Top 100 (2013 & 2014) winner sat down with We Rave You to discuss a range of topics, including his new single, and why hardstyle will “never die.”

With the Dutch master now announcing his retirement, Hardwell also told us why family is the most important thing to him, and how he plans to spend time with his friends, and his dog. Confessing that he’s a self-proclaimed “great beer drinker!”, you can catch our full interview with Hardwell below!
