Miami in March has long been one of the hottest destinations in the clubbing calendar. From the plethora of parties to the mammoth event that is Ultra Music Festival, Miami never fails to deliver on giving electronic music fans the biggest and most exciting DJ’s the scene has to offer. From house to techno, bass to trap, EDM to trance and any other genre or subgenre you can think of, Miami Music Week has it all! However, a name missing from the endless list of DJ stars this year is the iconic Dutch DJ and famed big-room pioneer: Hardwell. A regular feature during Miami this time of year whether it’s with his own Revealed Recordings hosted party or as part of his usual headline slot at Ultra, Hardwell’s name is a noticeable name not in amongst the artists of Miami Music Week 2019. So ahead of the party calendar in the Magic City this week we take a trip down memory lane and reflect on his Top 5 Miami moments:

Hardwell’s Ultra Music Festival Debut!

Rising through the ranks, Hardwell played his first set as the ‘Breakthrough Act of 2012’ at Ultra Music Festival. This set fell within a run of 70+ shows that Hardwell performed within 2012 while promoting his first major release ‘Spaceman’. He played the far reaches of the globe with sets in the USA, Asia, Brazil and all across Europe. Cementing himself as one to watch with each show!

2013 Ultra Music Festival’s Fan Favourite Set!

Hardwell’s set at the 2013 Ultra Music Festival was a stand-out fan favorite for the whole of Miami Music week for many. Not only did he play to the masses at Bayfront Park but also to the 90,000 fans that tuned in and watched his entire set be streamed via UMFTV! The stream itself broke the previous record for live streams at Ultra previously held by Swedish House Mafia. Within his set Hardwell played ten unreleased tracks in amongst his setlist including new remixes of ‘Calling’ and ‘Apollo’.

Revealed Recording live at Nicki Beach!

Hardwell brought his world-renowned record label Revealed Recordings and his many artists to Miami Music Week in 2016 for a star-studded event! The line up merged both well known Revealed artists such as Dannic with the new faces of Kura and Julian Jordan to create an out of the world experience for the fans of the label and the wider genre alike!

360 views in 2016!

Hardwell combined his passion for including all fans and newer technologies and decided to not only live stream his Ultra Music Festival 2016 set but do it with 360-degree VR viewing, the first of its kind! During his performance, the fans at home could choose between watching Hardwell do what he does best and watching the pumping crowd dancing away to song after song!

Go Hardwell or Go Home!

Within Miami Music Week 2018 Hardwell was welcomed to the stage fondly by the masses that came to watch him celebrate the 20th anniversary of Ultra Music Festival! Within his set Hardwell debuted 5 new IDs collaborating with the likes of SICK INDIVIDUALS, Maddix, Olly James and John Christian.
