Ten Weeks of Tomorrow: Top 10 Stage Lineups of Tomorrowland
As an abundance of artists will be at Tomorrowland, the number of stages will be almost as great. So, with the dozens upon dozens of stages hosting the hundreds of talented artists making their way to the top dance music festival in the world, how do you decide which one to go to? We’re bringing you our top ten picks of stages that every traveler will need to head to for the full experience Tomorrowland’s 10th anniversary has to offer!
1. Main Stage
For obvious reasons, you need to check out the main stage. Tomorrowland is world renowned for its larger than life set designs, and obviously, as we’re expecting, the visual aesthetics for the decade celebration will be even more over the top than they have been in the past. With the top DJs in the world like Hardwell, Armin van Buuren, Avicii, Tiesto, David Guetta, Kaskade, Skrillex, Dada Life (holy crapy look at that lineup!), and many more – there are many great reasons to check it out.
2. Dim Mak
Hosted by Dim Mak Records, owned by the one and only Steve Aoki, Dim Mak will host performers like Benny Benassi, Borgore, Keys N Krates, and The Chainsmokers. It will be available for partying on both Fridays, the 18th and 25th.
3. Mad Decent
Mad Decent is also coming in with the record’s superstars, like Dillon Francis, DJ Snake, Paper Diamond, Zeds Dead, and of course, the man himself, Diplo – only insanity can ensue. The Mad Decent stage will be featured on the 18th and 25th as well.
4. Carl Cox & Friends
You know Carl Cox always delivers – and now he’s bringing with him some heavy hitters: Umek, Loco Dice, Nicole Moudaber, and Adam Beyer. Here are more talent need-to-knows who will grace us with their presence on the 18th and 25th.
5. Legends of Trance
Only three DJs will be spinning at this stage, but listen, you won’t need any more when you realize that Cosmic Gate, Markus Schulz, and Paul van Dyk are the ones holding this stage lineup. Only available on the last days of the weekend, 20th and 27th, it’s a perfect drift-away to end out the fest. There’s a reason it’s called LEGENDS of Trance.
It’s not the main stage, but it is just as much of a powerhouse! Bassnectar, Blasterjaxx, Laidback Luke, Martin Solveig, and Nero will make appearances. You might as well stick around this stage (but don’t because that would be lame)! S.Y.M. will host a special performance by Pretty Lights and Superman, Spiderman, & Batman, ONLY to be seen on the first Saturday, the 19th.
7. Smash the House
Although only happening on Sundays, 20th and 27th, the lineup will change for both days in pretty big but awesome ways. Some DJs we love who’ll be sticking around for both weekends are Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Fedde Le Grand, and Regi (who I got to party onstage with at TomorrowWorld last year!), but the second weekend might be the winning round, because Martin Garrix and Bassjackers (who will b2b Shermanology) will be taking stage.
8. V Sessions VS Doorn Records
Well, we can’t decide which weekend for this stage will be better: first Saturday or second? Although Bingo Players, Firebeatz, Sander van Doorn, and Yves V will all be at that stage for both, here’s the conundrum: first weekend Dannic, D-wayne, and a b2b with Sander van Doorn and Yves V will take place while on the second weekend Don Diablo, Dyro, and MAKJ will be there. Oh, the decisions!
9. Richie Hawtin Presents M-nus
Here’s a one day only stage that every person going second weekend will envy weekend one festival-goers for: Richie Hawtin. The man of the hour will be there with grand talent from his record label to tear up the stage on Sunday, the 20th.
10. Trance Addict
Another reason why the Friday of each weekend might be the best day of your Tomorrowland experience: the Trance Addict stage. Why? Another three names in trance (like the Legends Stage): Paul Oakenfold, Orjan Nilsen, and Sean Tyas – you’re welcome. With a variety in their stage crew, Trance Stage will be around for both the 18th and 25th.
