This year has been a rather eventful one for Hardwell and his fans but the Dutch legend doesn't seem to be done just yet. He took to his social media three days ago with daily countdown posts to reveal something called The Story Of Hardwell.

Hardwell (real name Robbert van de Corput) made posts over the past several days leading up to the announcement of The Story Of Hardwell. Images that counted down the days were captioned with hints like "It is time..." and "The past 16 years of my life, let's share some memories."

While it remains unclear exactly what The Story Of Hardwell could be, we're guessing it is an autobiography by way of either a documentary or a book. About five years ago, the then DJ Mag #1 DJ released a documentary titled I Am Hardwell. Telling the story of his exponential growth from up-and-coming artist to international superstar, it provided a captivating inside look into his career.
