Everyone knows what Tomorrowland has to offer. The biggest DJs, the biggest sound systems, the biggest stage productions, the biggest parties.
Celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, Europe's biggest EDM festival is starting some new traditions, giving fans more chances to get in on the action.
Putting on a winter festival for the first time ever, Tomorrowland's slope side experience kicks off this weekend. To mark the momentous occasion we put together our favourite mixes from some of our favourite artists on the lineup.
If you missed out on Tomorrowland Winter, Festicket has a limited amount of packages for Tomorrowland's main event this July.
Charlotte de Witte
The meteoric rise of Charlotte de Witte has been something to behold. As recently as 2017 she was still making her first rounds of the festival circuit. Fast forward one year and she's on the main stage everywhere, including Tomorrowland. Her atmospheric approach to techno has clearly struck a chord with fans, which is on full display here in her addition to the vaunted BBC Essential Mix series.
The world's number one DJ doesn't need any introduction. Even the most hardcore purists have a hard time coming up with something negative to say about the effervescent Dutch producer. Hot off the presses, this is the most recent mix from his weekly radio show. Throwing in more subdued sounds than you're used to hearing from him, Garrix builds to his patented soaring highs, taking the listener on a journey.
To mark the launch of Tomorrowland's One World Radio last month, the cake-master general played a special set on the hallowed Tomorrowland grounds. Throwing in some old classics, new remixes and even some never-before-heard material, the set is yet more proof that no one can start a party like Steve Aoki.
Giving one of the most talked about sets in years on EDM's biggest stage, Salvatore Ganacci mesmerised all in attendance at Tomorrowland last year with his dance moves. And because it's been a while since I've watched the set, I thought this was the perfect time to bring it back into our collective consciousness. Huge beats, huge moves. What else can you want?
Armin van Buuren
And so it ends as it began, with an Essential Mix. Mixing trance with EDM for three hours like only he can, this 2013 mix for the BBC is still as relevant as it was then. Taking his time to build a full atmosphere, Armin flexes his sonic muscles and makes it look easy here. If I was heading to Tomorrowland Winter this would be my soundtrack for my trip there.
Tomorrowland Winter 2019 takes place 9-16 March in Alpe d'Huez, France. Find more info on our Tomorrowland Winter 2019 guide.
