Tomorrowland has recently dropped the official pre-festival video for 2013- as if we aren’t already excited enough! Now, with the introduction of TomorrowWorld- the Belgium festival’s travelling partner, fans from across the world are gearing up in hopes for the notorious event’s younger brother to be located at their front door, taking the worldwide frenzy to a new level. This clip only builds on the excitement surrounding the world’s best dance festival, check it out below!
Last year ID&T’s Tomorrowland spread out their lineup announcements and it looks as though they’ll be doing the same this year! So far the lineup consists of Steve Aoki, Marco Carola, ARTY, Axwell, Dave Clarke and Alesso.
Steve Aoki is heading back to Tomorrowland for the second year in a row and is taking his Dim Mak crew with him – “I’m bringing my whole crew out so we can have our own Dim Mak stage again, and also be playing the main stage ” Last year Aoki tore up the Dim Mak tent on the Friday before playing a 2 1/2 hour set on Sunday at the main stage to finish up the event before a massive fireworks display. This year Aoki will surely bring all of his usual antics and then more to put on a show like no other!
Italian electro / trance DJ Marco Carola will also be returning this year after performing on the Carl Cox stage in 2012. During an interview after his set last year Carola said “You do something new every time you play and it’s really important to surprise people” so it will be exciting to see what he will have in store for us this year!
Since hitting the scene in 2009, Russian trance DJ ARTY has already created quite the name for however 2013 will be his Tomorrowland debut. In 2012 he was ranked #28 in DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJ’s Poll and played events such as the Electric Daisy Carnival, Spring Awakening, Alesso’s 21st Birthday and Identity Festival. Check out some of these highlights:
Axwell needs no introduction and has is a Tomorrowland regular. After coming off his One Last Tour with Swedish House Mafia i’m sure he will have nothing less than amazing in store for us at Tomorrowland!
The Baron of Techno, Dave Clarke is another returning after hosting and playing at Tomorrowland’s second biggest stage last year. Check out his after movie from last year:
Alesso is back for the third time in a row and will be bringing his energy filled sets back for sure! After reaching #20 in DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJ’s Poll, debuting his first BBC1 Radio 1 Essential Mix and playing a string of other festivals around the world in 2012,it will be good to see him smashing it again at Tomorrowland this year!
Stay posted for more lineup announcements!!
Tomorrowland is a festival that should be on every EDM lovers bucket list. In 2012, 180, 000 people from around the globe attended the festival with millions more wishing they were there! Well things are looking up for all of the party goers who can only dream of flying to Belgium for Tomorrowland as the co-founders Michiel and Manu Beers confess to a Belgian newspaper about wanting to take their plans global.
“It’s our ambition to organise a Tomorrowland on every continent,”
“We have received requests for versions of Tomorrowland from all over the world. From rich Russians and Indians to promoters in Australia, the U.S. and South America. We will do it, but on our conditions, and only in places where we feel comfortable.”
They also made it clear that no short cuts will be taken if this were to happen by not committing to any dates or time restrictions.
With this news, rumours have already started flying around about a Tomorrowland in North America and I’m sure more rumours are bound to spread until we hear more official news. Nevertheless if this means our Tomorrowland dreams are that much closer, we’ll be happy to wait!!
For those hoping to get tickets to this years Tomorrowland, we wish you good luck!!
In the mean time enjoy the 2012 After Movie!!
