Tomorrowland, the electronic dance music festival, is held every year in Boom, Belgium. Usually the festival takes place over two weekends and sells out in minutes largely due to being host to some of the biggest names in electronic music. Tomorrowland cannot take place this year due to the worldwide coronavirus outbreak. The 2020 Tomorrowland being cancelled doesn’t mean that we’re not getting epic live sets from some of the biggest DJs and pop stars in the world. Tomorrowland is going digital in a two-day online streaming music festival. The line-up includes stars such as Alan Walker, Tiesto, Steve Aoki, Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike and Armin van Burren. Here’s who we’re excited about.
Norwegian DJ-record producer Alan Walker took the world by storm with the release of his single ‘Faded’, a song featured in so many YouTube gaming montages, it nearly broke the internet. Unsurprising, considering the 22-year-old’s love for gaming and his music’s popularity on the platform. The single went on to receive platinum certifications in 14 countries and his follow-up singles receive hundreds of millions of views on YouTube. Stream this young phenom’s set.
One of the most prominent DJs in the world, Frenchman David Guetta has collaborated with the likes of Pit Bull, Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Britney Spears and become one of the biggest pop stars of the modern era.
