Hardwell, world's No. 1 DJ, to perform at Gardens by the Bay on May 9

Dutch progressive house act Hardwell, one of the world's most popular DJs, will return to Singapore to perform at The Meadow, Gardens by the Bay, on May 9.

The 27-year-old producer, whose real name is Robbert van de Corput, was ranked the world's top DJ by electronic dance music bible DJ Magazine the last two years.

Best known for anthems such as Call Me A Spaceman, Apollo and Dare You, he last played here to a 8,000-strong crowd at Fort Canning in 2013.

His upcoming gig, organised by nightclub Zouk, is part of his global I Am Hardwell United We Are tour. Ticketing details will be released later.
