About the event:
In 2022 Defqon.1 Weekend Festival finally returned to Biddinghuizen after two online editions. Hosted by Q-dance the “home of the harder styles” event took place from the 23rd – 26th of June and true to the festival’s history, it was four days of absolute madness!
Role of Backbone:
Team Backbone sent a large contingent as we undertook several roles and overlooked different areas. This edition, we took care of the technical design with 3D drawings, technical production in collaboration with ArtFX Events and The Whole Sha-Bang, the overlay production and management, entire campsite production, and the power infrastructure supervision.
From building multiple stages including the mainstage of 152,5 meters wide and 38 meters high, producing the site objects and all special projects, to laying out one of the largest campsites in Europe for around 45,000 guests, and even conducting a simultaneous load in with load out of Festival De Opwekking – the preparation definitely came with some challenges, but our crew rose to the occasion and did their best to tackle them all. It was once again an unforgettable edition!
