Hardwell has cancelled his upcoming show at Sportpaleis in Antwerp on Friday 13th May due to the recent terror attacks in Brussels.
There is no official comment from the Dutchman as yet, but an email sent out to ticket holders said Hardwell’s camp didn’t think the atmosphere was right to hold the event following the bombings in March.
