Revealed Records Founder and CEO Robbert Corput, or better know to the public as Hardwell, has had a very impressive first half of 2014, to say the least. With traveling to 10 countries and counting, playing countless sold out shows around the globe, and headlining todays biggest music festivals, it is pretty clear why he is our #1 DJ.

2014 started off with a bang for Hardwell as he was quick to announce his first major tour, The North American Bus Tour, with support from Dyro and Dannic. This tour spanned over 1 week, shows every day, and stopping at some of todays most Iconic music venues all across the east coast and well up into the mid west. With stops at the Eagles Ballroom in Milwaukee, WI, Rapids Theatre in Buffalo, NY, and the Sands Bethlehem Event Center in Bethlehem, PA every Hardwell fan was able to get a little taste of why he is more than considered a veteran of this industry. With the accompany of not only his newest singings to Revealed Records, but close friends as well, the dutch breakouts Dyro and Dannic emerged in 2013 as two of the scene’s hottest new stars, and this tour just showed us why!

The fun never seems to stop when your Hardwell. After a non-stop tour of North American Hardwell headed straight to Miami for the Winter Music Conference, and to close out day 3 of this years Ultra Music Festival at beautiful Bayfront Park downtown Miami. Within five minutes of the headliner stepping up to the CDJs, fireworks shot from the Main Stage into the night sky, and the massive production didn’t stop there for the next hour. As thousands of on lookers danced the night away to what was surely a weekend to remember, and thousands more tuned in world wide via the live stream, Hardwell made sure to give us a performance that would forever be stored in our memory. As the finals moments of Ultra are getting near, Hardwell hops on the mic for one last word and says “Ultra, I really want to thank you guys for sharing with me one of the greatest moments of my life, Thank you so fucking much!”

As summer is slowly starting to approach and music festival line ups are appearing left and right across the world, one in particular will always stand out each year around the end of june. Yes, I am talking about the Electric Daisy Carnival, EDC,  in Las Vegas, Nevada. This historic and iconic event is held each year at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway under the desert night sky. With attendees from 50+ countries, people of all races and nationalities they all gather together for 1 weekend, for the same reason, the love of dance music! With so many familiar names and faces on the line up like Armin Van Buuren, Above & Beyond, and Axwell ^ Ingrosso you can be sure to find our friend Hardwell amongst them. Set to play the main stage at EDC this year or better known as ” The Kenetic Field”, Hardwell arrives 20 minutes before he goes on to prep himself and prepare for what will be one of his most anticipated sets of the year. Before he ascends up the stairs and takes us position behind the decks he leaves us with a few parting words, ” You can never prepare for what you can expect. The moment you walk on stage and you see all thoughts people in front of you, you forget about everything. Everything I do is for the fans, I am here for them, and I always give them the best time possible!”
