Watch 65,000 People Dance In Unison for Defqon.1’s 2023 “Power Hour”

Think it's hard to coordinate plans with three friends? These maniacs did it with 65,000.

Each year, the toughest electronic dance music fans on the planet flock to the Netherlands for the Defqon.1 festival, the world's premier celebration of hardstyle music. With close to 100,000 attendees year after year, Q-dance's flagship event is firmly entrenched as a can't-miss festival for fans of the genre.

While the eye-popping production and unrelenting sounds make the festival stand out amongst its peers, its patented "Power Hour" tradition is truly something else. Gathering close to 75% of the crowd on a single stage, Defqon.1's organizers bring out special pyrotechnics, fireworks, confetti, inflatables and more for one hour of choreographed mayhem. However, the choreography doesn't end on the stage.

Each year, tens of thousands of attendees partake in a gigantic crowd control movement, dancing from left to right in sync. This year, roughly 65,000 ravers bounced at the request of the MC, who turned the large crowd into one giant mass that crashed like waves in unison.
