Why did you choose this video? Can you explain a bit more about it? The feelings you had during this moment? What’s happening here?
This was my first time at Defqon.1, back in 2018 when I used to work there. It was an extremely busy weekend in terms of working hours, but I wouldn’t have wanted to miss this legendary moment for the world. The left-right crowd control was invented by Q-dance: everybody grabs their neighbor and jumps from left to right when the MC’s say so. The ground was shaking when everyone started jumping, goose bumps from head to toe!
The typical festival moments I can tick off are:
Lost my passport
Drank my first beer before 11am
Been in the centre of a mosh pit
Danced on stage
Walked into the wrong tent
Had my phone die while filmping the endshow
Pulled a weekender with less than 5 hours of sleep
Lost my friends
Stepped out of my comfort zone
Photobombed someone else’s group photo
