Defqon.1 Festival 2018

If there is one thing that reminds us of Defqon.1, it’s the theme that Q-Dance creates every year. All the themes have something to do with survival and team spirit. Thousands of Weekend Warriors enter the terrain, which is taken into account at the promotions of the event. ‘Weekend Warriors’‘Survival of the Fittest’‘No Guts No Glory’‘Dragonblood’ and ‘Victory Forever’. This year Defqon is doing it a little bit different. A giant Defqon mammoth is now featured at the new poster. This year’s theme is Maximum Force.
