Tomorrowland launches a CD in three volumes with sets by Armin Van Buuren, Axwell, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Lost Frequencies and an exclusive Tomorrowland Summer Mix compilation. Located in the aptly named town of ‘Boom’ in Belgium, the event is now in its 14th year and includes 16 stages with 400,000 people from over 75 countries split over two weekends.
The festival has steadily grown, due in large part to mainstream pop culture’s continued embrace of this decade’s electronic dance music explosion. It eclipses some of the biggest events in the world when compared to internet social media chitter chatter as it apparently amasses more tweets, insta and FB posts than Glastonbury, Burningman, Cochella, and Ultra music festivals combined. Even more than the F1, Wimbeldon, The Oscars and Tour De France put together.
This year the theme is ‘The Story of Planaxis’ – a kind of lost city of Atlantis idea, think magical submerged cities, extraordinary sea creatures and underwater mystery and the namesake of this year’s compilation.
Now some of the festivals biggest names bring you their take on the Tomorowland sound. While Armin van Buuren, Axwell, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Lost Frequencies play the Mainstage during the first weekend, you can also enjoy mash-ups of their best tracks at home. The four DJs all made special 30-minute sets, exclusive to the first two volumes of ‘The Story of Planaxis’. The third volume offers a Tomorrowland Mix 2018.
This is a download and physical release only including a Deluxe edition with 40-page booklet, and special copper hot foil embossed packaging. The CD is available now through Cr2 Records for the UK / IE and worldwide on iTunes through various WW outlets and record stores or online at www.tomorrowland.com.
