After a more than successful first edition, Hard News and are joining forces again for the annual hardstyle election: the Hardstyle Awards 2023. Who will take home one of the coveted awards this year? The polls will open soon.

The Hardstyle Awards is an independent election that distinguishes the best artists, labels and talents with a prestigious award. We present results based on statistics (such as downloads) and the opinions of hardstyle enthusiasts. Fan votes are decisive for the final winners – some categories are even 100% fan-voted.

Who managed to distinguish themselves as an artist this year? Which label rises above the competition? And which track deserves to be awarded the title ‘Best Track’? This year the prizes will be awarded in the following categories:

  • Best Artist
  • Best Track
  • Best Album
  • Best Label
  • Best Outdoor Festival
  • Best Indoor Event
  • Most Promising Artist by XXL Nutrition

An important update this year is the expanded influence of fan preferences on the outcomes of the Hardstyle Awards. Unlike last year, where you could vote on a pre-compiled list of artists, songs and labels, this year the voting lists are completely open. Every artist, album and track can be nominated in their respective categories, giving voters the most influence.

Cast your vote soon for your favorites for the Hardstyle Awards 2023

Voting for the Hardstyle Awards 2023 will be possible starting December 1, 2023, 8:00. Voting is possible at You can cast your vote until the 8th of December, 23:59. Follow the Hardstyle Awards on Facebook and Instagram to stay informed about everything surrounding the awards, from voting to the awards ceremony. The winners will be announced during the Hardstyle Awards Ceremony on January 4, 2024, in the Brabanthallen in ‘s Hertogenbosch.
