Good news for all the weekend warriors who think three days of Defqon.1 is not enough. Wouter Tavecchio, boss of Q-dance, announced that he plans to expand Defqon.1 by a fourth day. So maybe we can already drag our buggy carts and bags over the bridge on Thursday next year. One small thing: the license is not yet granted.

In the interview he says:
‘We want to add a fourth day to Defqon.1 next year. Arrive on Thursday and go home on Monday. Until now, Friday is an arrival day with a smaller program. We want to make it full Defqon.1 day and open the site on Thursday. I do not have the license yet, but the plans are very good and we’ve been talking about it for a long time. It’s good for everyone: the fans want it, we want it and it’s much better for security and logistics. We want people to compare Defqon.1 to events like Tomorrowland and Coachella. We think Defqon.1 should belong there. We are also working on a Q-munity, a community for the hardstyle scene. Our audience wants more info about the artists, behind the scenes and more engagement. I won’t be a money maker, but we want to do something with the involvement of our fans.’

What Wouter Tavecchio wants to do exactly to make Defqon.1 more like Tomorrowland and Coachella is not sure. But we should all be very happy that he is back at the Q-dance office in Landsmeer!

    Sounds very n1, i was on defqon 1 weekend this year and im a weekend warrior since 2013. im a big fan of the harder styles and for sure also from the defqon 1 festival. In my opinion the defqon 1 is allready the “tomorrowland” of the harderstylez. But im very interested in this theme and hope for a very nice, perhaps 4-day defqon 1 festival next year,
    Greetongs from germany,
