For its third U.S. incarnation, the electronic dance music/lifestyle festival known as TomorrowWorld has wrangled another assembly of top-name DJs/producers.
Tiësto and Steve Angello will headline the Sept. 25-27 event, which will again take place on 8,000 acres of farm land outside of Atlanta in Chattahoochee Hills.
The pair will be joined by a who’s-who of the EDM world: David Guetta, Martin Garrix, Afrojack, Hardwell, Armin van Buuren, Adventure Club, Ferry Corsten, Jamie Jones, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Big Gigantic, Paul van Dyk, Get Real (Claude VonStroke & Green Velvet), Adam Beyer, Flux Pavilion, Excision and Showtek.
And that’s just the first round of artists. Phase two will be announced soon.
While several of the major performers, including Guetta, Garrix and Tiësto, are TomorrowWorld regulars, this is the first year that Angello, a former member of Swedish House Mafia (“Don’t You Worry Child”) will join in the revelry. Last year more than 160,000 people flocked to the grounds during its three-day run.
The theme of this year’s gathering is The Key to Happiness ( you can check out Hardwell making the announcement here ).
In keeping with the TomorrowWorld credo of unity, on Wednesday, Michiel and Manu Beers, the founder-brothers of Tomorrowland, the European parent of TomorrowWorld, met in Brussels, Belgium with Ban Ki-Moon, secretary-general of the United Nations.
During their meeting, a wooden board bearing the message, “let’s work as one towards dignity for all,” was unveiled; it will be mounted on the 600-meter long bridge that is also a piece of art within the Tomorrowland venue.
For those staying closer to home, single-day tickets are on sale now for TomorrowWorld, as well as limited three-day passes and Tier 2 tickets for DreamVille, TomorrowWorld’s on-site camping city.
