As the summer season fast approaches, we’re typically day dreaming about all of the stateside festivals that we’ll be attending. However, for those in Europe and those willing to make the trek from abroad, Ibiza is always a large focus for dance music-driven entertainment, and this week, Hardwell announced his triumphant return to the party island paradise with a coveted, 12-week residency at the famed Ushuaïa Ibiza. Every year, this Dutch phenomenon brings something fresh and exciting to the island, but this year, he’s bringing one of his most fun and creative concepts to date – Hardwell’s Carnival. Taking place every Tuesday, Hardwell’s new event series will be bringing a hand-picked roster of talent, including a range of promising, up-and-coming artists, and a select group of heavyweight star DJs. Each of these talents will be at the helm of this experience that is set to fuse the festivities of dance, culture, costumes, and of course, music, while also featuring other unique attractions like stilt walkers, masquerades and carnage-creators for a complete package not found elsewhere on the island. Now as Hardwell preps for the release of his next single, “Follow Me” featuring Jason Derulo, he has plenty to look forward to, even after his debut album United We Are shot up the global charts, reaching #2 on the iTunes Album Chart worldwide.
