Our story

Our first post on Instagram

The first few 1000 followers will remember that we once started under the name @your_festival_info. By means of @your_festival_info we wanted to inform partygoers about all festivals in the Netherlands. For that reason we also posted information about techno & house festivals, but our love has always been with the harder festivals.

Milestone: 10.000 enthusiasts after 1,5 years

Only after a year and a half 10.000 followers. In the meantime (with approx. 2000 followers) we decided to change our name to Hardfestivalviz. Firstly for the reason that the harder festivals are our festivals and secondly there was ours mening no account where harder festival videos were posted. How cool is it to watch videos from your favorite DJ or festival? That's right, we thought so too. Our goal: 'to become the account for the harder styles enthusiasts'.

Our logo: Het Hardfestival logo

Hardfestival is now growing so fast that we are going to take a more professional approach. A logo is our first step. We have juxtaposed logos of well-known festivals and DJs to create as central a logo as possible. What exactly does the logo mean? Our slogan is: “through the sound”, in other words: “through the sound barrier”. The center piece in the logo is a jet fighter that blasts through it at full throttle. The three pieces of the logo around the jet fighter are pieces that momenDon't break free of the sound barrier. Not bad right :)

It all started 5 years ago ... Hardfestival started as an Instagram page to keep festival goers up to date on all festivals in and around the Netherlands. Now, nearly 3.500 posts further on, is Hardfestival an indispensable part of the hard scene. About 3 years ago, the step was taken to create a general logo and present it worldwide as the logo of the harder styles.

Limited to only 100 pieces, this is the ideal cap for the Pilots who want to go through the sound at ko's fattest festivalsmend year!
