Highlights: His set at Ultra, his I AM HARDWELL tour, winning the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll (no, really)

Even before we heard the "rumors" of Hardwell hitting #1 on the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll, we knew he'd be there. There isn't a DJ that properly describes the EDM sound in a festival setting better than Hardwell. He proved it back in March during his explosive Ultra Music Festival set, one that took over Twitter chatter during it's live stream. Then he made sure to recreate its intensity whenever he touched down, be it at TomorrowLand, TomorrowWorld, or during one of his many I AM HARDWELL tour stops. He's a force to be reckoned with on the boards as well, with tracks like his Laidback Luke collaboration "Dynamo," or his MAKJ collaboration "Countdown" exploding in the dance. Hardwell's #1 in the world's heart, and you can't help but acknowledge both his story and his impact on today's scene.
