Earlier today, Hard Dance event promoter Q-dance took it to their socials to announce the biggest event of the year for all the ‘hard heads’: Defqon.1 2020!
Not much is know, but the information released is enough to get any orange heart racing at 150 BPM. The festival will return to the Evenemententerrein Biddinghuizen, from the 26th to the 28th June. The theme for this upcoming year is Primal Energy.
The organization also advanced that on the February 20th The Release will take place, where more information will be announced, along with the registration for the ticket sales.
There are two very interesting things that we can already take from this announcement. The first one is the obvious absence of the 4th day that has been rumored for at least a couple of years already. Word on the street is that Q-dance needed a license for this fourth day, but it appears they either didn’t try to get it, or the yearly noise complains were enough for them to be denied a license for an extra day.
Another interesting detail is the “About” page on the festival’s announcement. It talks about Defqon.1’s legacy, listing all previous edition’s themes, and speaks about Defqon.1 being a “sanctuary for those with a passion for the harder styles”. This, combined with the theme for this year makes us wonder – are they going to focus on doing flashbacks of the last 18 editions in the shows they’re preparing?
Further information should take a while to arrive. But in the meantime, be sure to stay tuned, and read our review of the last edition of this amazing festival!
