Defqon.1, aka the Best Weekend of Our Lives, was almost 2 months ago. But it doesn’t mean that we’ve stopped reminiscing about the amazing things that happened at the festival! Sure, the music and DJs were mind-blowing, but my favorite part of the weekend was meeting my fellow attendees, seeing all the funny outfits, and laughing my ass off at all the weird stuff that went down!
I consulted the Weekend Warriors of QSA for their favorite fan moments of Defqon.1, and this is the Top 10 weird & funny things that happened at the festival!
10. When the Defqon.1 Armada sailed into Yellow
That’s some advanced cardboarding right there!
9. When the Shark did the Hakken
8. When People Peed Everywhere
And all the first-person accounts…
“There were these 4 guys taking a piss by the lake dressed as Mario, Luigi, Toad, and Bowser. The guy dressed as Mario tried pissing on the guy dressed as Luigi.” – Gabe B.
“Saw 3 dudes pissing on a fence at the White Stage. They glanced down and giggled. Then suddenly the 2 guys on the sides turned inward and crossed streams with the middle guy…
YOU NEVER CROSS STREAMS!!” – Mark G.
(Boys this is not cool, use the proper urinals please. But still, hella funny)
7. When the Snapchat Dog made a surprise appearance on the UV Stage
6. When the referee blew his whistle and gave out penalties
I heard that several Defqon.1 referees made appearances at the festival, blowing their whistles on the dance floor and handing out red and yellow cards for bad dancing, spilling beer, and anything really. Thank you Mr/Mrs Referees for keeping the festival chaotic!
Yeah, I know… Pictures or it didn’t happen. Anyone got a picture of this?!
5. When this did some hardcore swiping on Tinder

(For those of you that don’t get it, this is an internet sensation that’s taken the Dutch social media by storm. Must watch!)
