Making his second straight appearance at Ultra Music Festival this year, Hardwell took the stage a year on from his return from hiatus, and while his most recent album, ‘REBELS NEVER DIE,’ is but a few months old, he delivered a career spanning set and found time to showcase his talents as a trance producer, delivering a remix of one the biggest singles released this year.
