For a while now, Belgium’s colossal Tomorrowland has ranked high on the radar of ITMers. With glittering line-ups, first-class production, an immense (and immensely up-for-it) crowd and all-round epic-ness, it’s been coined the world’s ultimate dance music festival. A big claim, certainly, but Tomorrowland has built an army of acolytes around the world – among them a fair few inthemix regulars.
It might be easier to list the acts who didn’t play the festival in 2011 – and if you haven’t taken in the 13-minute after-movie, it’s time you did now. Next year’s weekender is sure to be even bigger, so for those of you planning a pilgrimage to the town of Boom, take note of some key dates.
Tomorrowland is set for 27, 28 and 29 July 2012, with the first line-up names revealed on 1 January 2012 (something to drag your sorry self out of bed for). So, who’s tipped for the monster bill? Pretty much everyone in dance music, we’d say, across a fleet of curated stages. Stay tuned.
