Our story

Our first post on Instagram!

Flying Dutch? Our first few thousand followers might be able to remember that we once started under the name of @_your_festival_info. Through @_your_festival_info we wanted to inform all partygoers about all festivals in the Netherlands. For that reason we also placed information about techno & house festivals, but our love has always gone out to the harder festivals.

Milestone: 10.000 followers
after 1,5 years!

It took us a whole year until we had reached 6000 followers. During that time (at about 2000 followers) we decided to change our name to Hardfestivalnl for two reasons. First of all: the harder styles are our passion. Second of all because, we noticed that there weren’t any accounts that posted harder festival movies. How cool would it be to be able to watch movies of your favorite DJ or festival? Right, that’s exactly what we thought. Our goal: ‘become THE account for lovers of the harder styles.

Our Trademark: The Hardfestival Logo

Hardfestival was growing so rapidly that we decided to get serious and take a more professional approach. A logo was our first step (towards professionalization)! We have compared logos from several popular festivals and DJs to each other in order to create a logo that would be as approachable as possible for everyone and would be a good representation of our story. So what exactly does the logo mean? Our slogan is: “through the sound”, in other words “through the sound barrier”. The center of the logo represents a jet fighter exploding through that barrier in full throttle. The three pieces of the logo around the jet fighter are pieces that are breaking loose of the sound barrier at that very moment. Not bad, right?

Hardfestival X Clothing

After months of trying, testing, wearing and washing we reached a new milestone on the 16th of May! We launched our new clothing line in the Hardfestival online store including Hardfestival X hoodies (unisex), T-Shirts (men) and Tops (women). We are incredibly happy with the result. The clothing fits nicely, the design is modern and the clothing is incredibly comfortable due to the 5% elastane that is used in our clothing.
