With the very best in the worlds of hardstyle & hardcore, HARDFEST takes it to the next level again this year. In total you will find no less than 50+ artists, spread over 4 different areas with 15,000 visitors. Organization Absolutely Fresh is going all out: with several artists who have never played here before.

The timetable and floorplan have just been revealed, and it appears that HARDFEST has literally never been this big. A new part of the domain in Enschede has been opened for two brand new stages: due to the high demand for the hardest RAW and the iconic classics, both styles have been given their own place at the festival. Including Aversion vs. Imperatorz and The Purge vs Adjuzt, and the classics of Crypsis and Psyko Punkz. “Get ready for the biggest edition so far.”

New this year at HARDFEST are the Fired Up sets, for which the festival has selected 4 artists to get even more out of their sets. Think of a show where Angerfist LIVE, D-Sturb, Dimitri K and Rebelion pull out all the stops, with more special effects, flames and fireworks than you are used to. “We’ll raise the bar to show you what it means to be Fire to the Flame.”

HARDFEST: “We’re going bigger than ever: more square meters of party, more areas, more artists and definitely more fire”

HARDFEST – Fire to the Flame takes place on Saturday April 22 at the University of Twente in Enschede (The Netherlands) and 98% of the tickets are already gone, so it will sell out again. Head over now to the festival’s official website for more information.
