Hardwell performs at the 2022 edition of Ultra Music Festival in Miami on March 27th, 2022.

The fabled "Spaceman" producer had performed at Ultra every year from 2012 to 2018, when he stunned the electronic dance music community by stepping away at the age of 30. He now seems to be back with a renewed creative spirit after his momentous performance, where he unveiled a revamped, electrifying sound rooted in techno and future rave music.

Hardwell dropped the curtain on a staggering 15 IDs during the set, giving fans a generous taste of honey before offering up the Rebels Never Die hive. He has not yet announced a release date for the full-length album, his first since 2015's debut United We Are, but revealed that it will feature 14 songs and will release under his storied record label, Revealed Recordings. Fans can pre-save the record here.

Approximately 150,000 people flocked to Ultra's Main Stage to experience Hardwell's set, which also reportedly broke the record for the festival's livestreaming viewership. Check out the full performance below.
