2014 has been a crazy one for Hardwell with constant knockout performances at festivals such as the several Tommorrowland, EDC’s, and Ultra’s around the world throughout the year as well as shows around the world for his ‘I Am Hardwell’ tour. He has found his way to pretty much all of the major dance music events around the world, and still has the the time to do his hour long radio show ‘Hardwell On Air’ every Friday, which is in the top 10 podcasts in more than 45 countries. With the close of his tour at none other than Madison Square Garden in New York City November 15, he will be releasing new tour dates for his new 2015 journey.

ADE 2014 Recap!!

OCT. 19, 2014


Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), is a 5 DAY music festival that is officially, and sadly over. Held in none other than Amsterdam, one of the clubbing capitals of the world, and in the Netherlands the birthplace of pretty much the entire DJ industry. If the fact that ADE is 5 days (party starts on Wednesday), isn’t proof enough that Dutch people go hard just see DJ’s Hardwell, Armin Van Buuren, Tiesto, Afrojack, Dash Berlin receive their own official stamps on the first day of ADE, October 15:


image


The very first night of ADE started off with a bang with a little “Back 4 Back” action during Protocol Recordings Reboot with Nicky Romero, Martin Garrix, Afrojack, and Ansolo!


image


image


The next night Martin Garrix, Nicky Romero, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Afrojack, Dillon Francis, MOTi, Julian Jordan, Jay Hardway, DubVision, Sander Van Doorn, Bassjackers AND Oliver Heldens were all under the same roof at Escape Amsterdam:


image


image


image


In addition to all that craziness, the World’s #1 DJ was crowned at Amsterdam Music Festival, Hardwell was voted #1 the second year in a row!!




2013:


image


2014:


image


That was just a summary of the main events, but ADE is one of the biggest music events in the world, with 757 events and 2,537 artists playing them in total. Those Dutch people really do know how to party from Wednesday to Sunday, and just about anyone who missed ADE this year is praying that they can make it to Amsterdam next year for the always fun filled 5 day event.
