There are few places like Tomorrowland. That's right, I'm calling it a place, even if it only appears once a year. The wonder, excitement, and most important of all, unity that inundates the grounds is rivaled by few settings, if any. It's a full on cultural experience that is driven by the power of music. The tenth anniversary of Tomorrowland will take place this year with the graces of a ten minute hymn composed by Hans Zimmer.
You may recognize Hans Zimmer from f...
SFX Entertainment continues to conquer the live-event and dance music scene by storm. The conglomerate behind concerts like TomorrowLand, TomorrowWorld, Life In Color, and Electric Zoo as well as the online electronic dance music store Beatport has recently acquired three new assets to their FX-1 division in charge of in-house marketing solutions for musicians and brand names in cohorts with them. They will be in the same section as Pay Logic, Flavorous, Arc90, and Fam...
Those who suffer from serious FOMO will either be excited, or perhaps disappointed, to hear that this year's Tomorrowland will be televised for the first time in the festival's 10 year history. MTV has recently signed on to exclusively broadcast live event footage from the 2014 summer festival as part of its MTV World Stage programming. This year's Tomorrowland, which has expanded to run across two weekends (July 18-20 & 25-27), will feature top EDM artists such as...
As Tomorrowland draws closer and closer, and with tickets completely SOLD OUT, it's time for the artist line ups to begin appearing.
Rather than do one large blast artists like smaller festivals like Counterpoint might, or release in phases like Ultra, Tomorrowland is going the one-at-a-time route and releasing artist names and dates via their Twitter account. The rate seems to be three artists a day, so keep your eyes open for the ones you want to see.
ID&T, the incredible company behind Tomorrowland made it quite clear with the arrival of TomorrowWorld in the US that global expansion of the festival is a major goal. Founding brothers Manu and Michiel Beers said: "We are expanding, but only to locations that feel like a home to us”.
After a visit to Brazil, it seems as if the founding brothers feel that Brazil could provide the same location and experience that Chattahoochee Hills and the Belgian countryside provide....
Last week, we reported that Tomorrowland may cut down its festival from two weekends to one due to complaints from residents in the surrounding village. Originally, the residents of De Schorre, Boom had signed a petition to cancel the second weekend and were going to take ID&T, the festival's organization, to court.
But court may not be up ahead for either party so soon. On a Fleming television show called Reyers Laat, Griet Cnudde -- the lawyer representing the res...
Today and over the next ten days, the lineup to Tomorrowland will slowly be revealed.
Each day, three big names in EDM will be announced, to help celebrate a decade of madness.
As each name is announced, we will keep you posted and updated:
Hardwell: Saturday 19 & 26 July.
Above & Beyond: Saturday 26 July
New World Punx
Unfortunately, the possibility that the beloved Tomorrowland festival will have its second weekend cut from the calendar, due to complaints from surrounding residents, is on the table. The residents petitioned against the second weekend and this is being taken to court to settle. Not only are they attempting to shorten the festival, but they are inquiring to have the first weekend toned down. I get their point of view, but turn down for what?
Tomorrowland has worked...
