July 20-22, 27-29
If Airbeat-One is the appetizer, consider Tomorrowland to be the main course AND dessert. Perhaps the number one electronic dance music festival in the world, Tomorrowland returns to its spiritual ground of tiny Boom, Belgium for two weekends in July!
More than 200 artists are scheduled to perform this year; featuring Northwest favorites Rezz, Seven Lions, Above & Beyond, Markus Schulz, Yellow Claw, and NGHTMRE. As if the lineup wasn’t big enough as is, names continue to be added! The ninth, and 10th artists phase was recently revealed, with more to be “announced soon.”
Pop and hip-hop artists will perform full sets as well, a Tomorrowland first. Rappers French Montana and Lil Pump will feature, in addition to singer Craig David’s alter ego TS5, and singer Dua Lipa. Could this lead to the festival becoming more mainstream by attracting a new audience? Golden Globe winning actor Idris Elba will also perform a DJ set, as he continues to advance his musical career following performances during Miami Music Week last month.
Returning this year is UNITE. Seven parties in seven countries will be connected to Tomorrowland Belgium, via live stream, making for one synchronized, global extravaganza. Each party will have a stage, live artists, and the amazing production that Tomorrowland events are known for- in addition to a live broadcast from Belgium. Unfortunately, there isn’t a UNITE function in North America, but, hopefully, our time will come soon.
Tickets are 100% sold out, and if you’re buying from a secondary market- heed caution! Luckily, there’ll be a livestream- details of which will be revealed closer to the event date.
