Sound In Motion is proud to present Hardwell in Minneapolis, with support from Dyro and Dannic. Since his debut performance in the Twin Cities at Sound In Motion’s two-night event, Escape, he has been voted the World’s No. 1 DJ by the 2013 DJ Mag Top 100 DJs Poll, solidifying his legacy as the youngest artist to ever receive the honor. The Twin Cities will provide the official launch of his tour with an unforgettable night.
Robbert van de Corput is better known by his stage name, Hardwell. Hardwell’s collaboration in 2011 with his mentor, Tiesto, resulted in ‘Zero 76’. The single was one of the biggest tracks of the year with over 14 millions views on YouTube and was #1 on the Beatport and US iTunes charts. Hardwell’s ratio of releases to hits is extraordinary, exemplified by his remixes of Rihanna’s ‘Where Have You Been?’ and The Wanted’s ‘Chasing the Sun’ topping Billboard’s Dance Chart at #1. His biggest release in 2012 was ‘Spaceman’, regarded as one of the EDM scenes biggest timeless anthems by media critics and peers.
Hardwell’s 2013 performance at Ultra Music Festival was legendary. The performance broke all records for the most watched Ultra live broadcast during UMF with over 80,000 people watching his set via the feed and clocked over 6 million views of the set in 8 weeks. During the Ultra set, Hardwell’s Twitter account used 20% of Twitter’s overall bandwith with his name trending worldwide, causing Twitter to temporarily shut down his account.
The young boy from the city of Breda has become an international heavyweight. After beating out the likes of Armin Van Buuren and Avicii as the ‘#1 DJ in the World’, Hardwell’s name, face, and brand is a force that will drive electronic dance music for years to come.
