Martin Garrix has historically always, when he’s been booked for Tomorrowland, played the main stage. It’s where he belongs, after all, being such a huge artist. But, not this year. This year, it seems Garrix will only be playing one set across both weekends, on his own STMPD RCRDS stage weekend one.
I'm not playing the mainstage this year! Only @stmpdrcrds stage weekend 1

While this is definitely a disappointment for his hardcore fans, it has also started a rumor of who could be taking his place. The most popular rumor so far? Swedish House Mafia.
In August last year, Steve Angello spoke to De Telegraff and essentially said Swedish House Mafia would do everything they could to play Tomorrowland in 2019. So far, the festival has been revealing names one day at a time and Swedish House Mafia hasn’t been named — yet. There’s still time, though.
As of right now, Angello’s interview and the fact that Garrix isn’t playing the main stage are the only pieces of evidence, however circumstantial, that fans have regarding SHM’s possible appearance. We won’t know for sure until the full lineup is released.
