Hardwell teases return with surprise appearance at ADE

Hardwell has teased fans that he will return to the live circuit soon with a surprise appearance at ADE in Amsterdam during his own Revealed Recordings showcase at Koepelkerk on Saturday 16th October.

A post to Instagram has since been shared, which begins with roster artist KAAZE giving the label boss an introduction: “This is not official yet, but he’s coming, he’s coming.” 

The video then shows Hardwell enthusiastically jumping to the music, namely Ran-D’s anthem ‘Zombie’, surrounded by friends and imprint artists.

“I fucking miss you guys so much,” Hardwell said, addressing the crowd.

In early September this year, fans at a small party with Ran-D also spotted Hardwell on stage, igniting rumours of an impending comeback. The hardstyle and EDM producer has been ‘on hiatus’ since 2018, when he took a break from touring. In January, his longstanding radio show, Hardwell On Air, wound up after ten years of broadcasts and 500 shows, with a new Revealed Recordings 24/7 YouTube livestream launched as a replacement. The same month he also released a retrospective compilation of his best work, ‘The Story of Hardwell‘.
