Dutch DJ/producer, Hardwell, was recently inaugurated into Amsterdam’s Madame Tussauds waxworks museum. Providing a pin-point for what is culturally relevant, Madame Tussauds has showcased hyper-realistic waxwork figures of world-class leaders, sports stars, musical mavericks and more across its multiple locations globally, including their Dutch branch that was the first international attraction outside of London operating for over 45 years.
After a busy 12 months that saw Hardwell launch his United We Are Foundation project to help put underprivileged children through education programmes, he also led a Mumbai crowd in raising enough money to assist over 18,000 children in poverty and counting. His combination of supporting philanthropy as a key figure in production and DJing, possibly signals his position of positive status as he moved on to win six IDMAs (International Dance Music Awards) for 2016 including ‘Best Global DJ’ at the recent Miami Music Week.
Known for their intricate, detailed designs that bring every eyelash, nail and physical attribute to life, check below for the official behind the scenes footage of Hardwell filmed alongside the Madame Tussauds team. They follow him from the measuring stages to wax preparation, before the complete, life-sized design will be available to view in-person from October 2016 alongside key modern figures including Justin Bieber, Tiësto and Kate Moss.
