It seems like every year is the year of Tomorrowland, but in 2019 it's truer than usual. Hosting their first festival in 2005, this year marks the 15th anniversary of arguably the biggest dance music brand in the world. And if you think the people behind Tomorrowland would let a landmark accomplishment like this go uncelebrated, you really don't know them at all.
In February, the festival launched One World Radio, with exclusive sets and shows by your favourite DJs to make sure everyone keeps dancing and celebrating all year.
In March, Tomorrowland started the festivities earlier than ever with their inaugural winter festival.
When it comes to putting on major events with top tier stage production and dance music talent, these people mean business. With one festival down and seven to go, here's a rundown of the crazy fun year Tomorrowland is putting together for 2019.
Festival lineup: The Chainsmokers, Armin Van Buuren, Carl Cox, Martin Garrix, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Charlotte de Witte, Helena Hauff
The big kahuna. This is, of course, the main event. With the landmark anniversary this year, the festival is bringing back the fan favourite theme from 2012: The Book of Wisdom. Running down the lineup, it feels like every DJ you can name will be there. But even still, you can rest assured the organisers have more than a few tricks and unannounced appearances up their sleeves.
When & where: 19-21 July 2019 & 26-28 July 2019; Boom, Belgium
