We all know that the lineup for Tomorrowland is absolutely enormous. And with the overwhelming amount of dance music royalty populating the programme, you'd be forgiven for missing some of the slightly more unexpected names thrown in the mix.
We're not talking the stars of underground techno or the drum & bass veterans. By this point we'd like to think that people are aware that Tomorrowland is not the reserve of EDM and big-room megastars (although we can see why you might think that, given their abundance).
Instead, here are a handful of acts that raised eyebrows slightly when we pored over the lineup for this summer.
Potion Stage – 16:30-19:00, 29 July
DCI John Luther himself. Or maybe Stringer Bell. The next James Bond? Either way, you can catch Big Driis spinning his favourite house tunes at Tomorrowland this year. And he's no stranger to a big stage, having played everywhere from Glastonbury to Pacha.
Smash The House – 15:00-16:00, 29 July
Another actor who knows his way round a set of decks. The man best known as Hodor from Game of Thrones actually started DJing long before the name Winterfell meant anything to the vast majority of us.
Smash The House – 16:00-17:00, 29 July
Recently named the artistic director of Louis Vuitton's menswear collection, the Ghanaian-American fashion designer's links to the music industry are well-documented. Having met Kanye West back in 2009, he went on to work closely with the rapper on Jay-Z collab album Watch The Throne. More recently, he has taken on Radio 1's Benji B as a mentor to hone his skills behind the decks.
DJ Jazzy Jeff
The Organ of Harmony – 22:45-23:45, 20 July
Grammy Award winner. Hip-hop veteran. Block party specialist. Fresh Prince of Bel-Air actor. Friend of Will Smith. Now Tomorrowland performer.
The Organ of Harmony – 20:00-20:45, 20 July
Ready to feel old? Florida rapper Gazzy Garcia - aka Lil Pump – was born in the year 2000. And as divisive as his music may be, there's no denying this guy has got something that people really go for. Just look at those viewing figures.
Tomorrowland 2018 takes place 20-22 & 27-29 July. Book the last remaining packages here.
