Defqon.1 festival is an annual music festival held in Biddinghuizen, the Netherlands. Founded in 2003 by client, Q-dance. The festival is focused on the harder edge of dance music, inviting DJ’s to bombard the crowd with beats from 14 stages. Taking place on the same terrain which hosts the famous Lowlands Festival later in summer, Defqon.1 also offers a fantastic camping experience for electronic music fans.
