Colours recently announced that Hardwell, the world’s number 1 DJ, will be playing his biggest Scottish show to date on Saturday February 8 2014. Bringing his I Am Hardwell show to The Royal Highland Centre, Ingliston, Edinburgh, this will be only the third location in the UK to host the show after London and Manchester.
After performing two memorable sets at Tomorrowland and Creamfields 2013, music maturity came swiftly for the now seasoned-veteran Robbert van de Corput, better known as Hardwell. At the age of 25, the young Dutchman capped off a 10 year journey when he was crowned World’s No.1 DJ in the 2013 DJ Mag Top 100 DJs Poll cementing his position as the electronic scene's newest superstar DJ and becoming the youngest ever winner of the coveted Top 100 DJs award.
Like his great mentor Tiësto, Hardwell proudly hails from Breda, a city tucked deep within the Netherlands. Having first established his name at the tender age of 14, Hardwell has since elevated his club-land standing to impressive, dizzying heights. His serving of big room bangers over the past year has seen a bundle of tracks sweep charts and dancefloors worldwide. Label boss of Revealed Recordings, he’s landed six consecutive #1’s on Beatport.
In October 2013, during Amsterdam Dance Event, Hardwell held the world premiere of his ‘I Am Hardwell’ documentary in Amsterdam’s oldest and most famous cinema, Tuschinski. The documentary provides a captivating inside-look on Hardwell’s rise. With the motto – “If you can dream it, you can do it”.
The 'I Am Hardwell' concept will come to life with holographic visuals, pyrotechnics, state-of-the-art computer wizardry and spectacular and original audio-visual elements. From artwork to visuals, Hardwell has overseen all elements of the show alongside ALDA Events and Colours to combine his signature big room, energetic, progressive sound with a unique and spectacular event that showcases everything Hardwell stands for.
