Defqon1 Festival is a hardstyle music festival in Biddinghuizen. With over 70,000 visitors every year, it is the biggest hardstyle music festival in the world.

After an absence of two years, Defqon.1 returns stronger than ever by adding a full day to what already is the world’s biggest hardstyle festival. For the first time ever, our journey will take place from Thursday till Sunday, setting the stage for a legendary journey which includes a record number of artists, specials and shows.

One of the biggest additions is Fresh Friday, a complete festival day that rivals the magnitude of the Saturday with all areas open throughout the day and two major show moments at the RED.

With a reputation to bring only the most elite to their festivals, Defqon1 Festival’s recent lineups have included Andy Svge, Max Enforcer, Ransomnia & Friends and more.

Held at the Evenemententerrein Biddinghuizen, this festival mixes the joy of a classic outdoor festival with its hardcore music.

Defqon1 Festival 2021 was postponed to 2022 due to the coronavirus outbreak. Tickets remain valid for the 2022 edition. You can read the festival’s statement here
