Defqon.1 announces the date for 'The Release'

Defqon.1 has announced the date for 'The Release', a traditional broadcast by the promoter with the latest details of the festival.

Yes, this is the year. Finally the Weekend Warriors from around the world will meet again to celebrate a traditional date for all of them. The last weekend of June, like every year since before the pandemic. 'The Release' is a broadcast in which the latest details of the festival are announced and seen by thousands of people every year. In addition, it will relaunch the sale of the last tickets for Defqon.1, only available for Friday and Sunday. The launch will take place on March 10, between 20:00 and 21:00 (CET) through its own application Q-dance Network.


It's the biggest edition to date of Defqon.1 with the addition of a fourth festival day. It will feature the best hardstyle artists in the world and a completely renewed program for other dates. With E-Life and Audiofreq as presenters, they will share all the details of this next edition, including some images that have never been seen before.

"Defqon.1 will span across four days for the very first time, and The Release lets our fans prepare for the biggest edition of the festival in a unique way. The addition of Fresh Friday, Defqon.1's new full-on festival day, changes the status quo of the festival completely, so we recommend all Weekend Warriors to watch The Release."

Jonas Schmidt, Creative Director of Q-dance

Defqon.1 2022 will take place from June 23 to 26 in Biddinghuizen. The last tickets are available from March 10 at 20:00 CET through the website of Defqon.1.

One summer of 2014 I wondered what an electronic music festival would be like and 5 years later, I wonder what would become of me without such a festival regularly..
