Tomorrowland Winter 2019: Our Highlights

Tomorrowland 2019

Tomorrowland 2019

Boom, Belgien


The first edition of Tomorrowland Winter went down last week in the French Alps, showcasing the likes of DJ Snake, Afrojack, Martin Garrix and Armin Van Buuren in Alpe d'Huez.

We sent along some of the team to check it all out, and here are their highlights.

Yara Magarino – Business Development

Favourite set?

My favourite set was probably DJ Snake as it was the first show I saw at the festival. The adrenaline of entering the site and running to that huge main stage made it even more special. It was one of the best moments I've experienced at a festival, dancing with friends to such a great spectacle with fireworks, constant light changes... and all while it was snowing!

Favourite moment?

Being able to wake up in the peaceful Alps, ski during a sunny day and eating great cheese is probably the best combination for a crazy festival like Tomorrowland.

Top tip for next time?

My tip for anyone going next time would be don't try to ski for the first time without an instructor. I went to the mountain to try and I couldn't even stand (have to say that there was a blizzard going on and that they closed the slopes after), but I lasted literally 10 minutes and I went back to give my gear to the shop. I have to say that I went again with an instructor and I loved it!


Emilie Ayton – Paid Marketing

Favourite set?

DJ snake on Wednesday evening on the main stage. It was the first thing we did when we arrived and oh my god, none of us were expecting something like that. We were on fire and so was DJ Snake.

Favourite moment?

So many great memories! What a great team. I would say when we were all dancing together, jumping crazy during Kolsch's set at the Garden of Summer stage.

Top tip?

Be prepared for the best ride of your life. From our village we needed to take the bus to Alpes d’Huez, which was around an hour, riding on the narrow mountain roads, including 22 mountain bends to climb. It was scary but so worth it.


Ben Martin – Product Manager

Favourite set?

Definitely Kölsch. Huge expectations for his set and the man with the hat didn't disappoint. Drivy, groovy, boomy. 

Favourite moment?

Day: enjoying the Amicorum Stage with an afternoon beer, up in the mountains under the sun, after skiing all morning. Night: the insane main stage, where fireworks went off each time the bass dropped.

Top tip?

You should train for this festival as you would for a marathon. Skiing all day, eating cheese for every meal and partying all night can be quite demanding, so be prepared. 


Marlene Solheim – Business Development

Favourite set?

Paul Kalkbrenner at the Garden of Madness stage. 

Favourite moment?

Jumping out of the shuttle the first time and storming the main stage. 

Top tip?

I have two tips. The first is to plan your time spent on the slopes so that you get to enjoy the DJ sets up there. And my second is to bring road beers for the shuttles if you're not staying at the festival area, because in snowy weather the journey can take forever. 


Caroline Reigner – Hotels


Favourite set?

DJ Snake.

Favourite moment?

The end of Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike's set on the main stage.

Top tip?

Get your Bikini out, it's super warm indoors.
