With 3 weeks, what seems like forever, still remaining before we can bask in the enchantment that is TomorrowWorld 2015, the official set times for the festival have been released and, oh boy, are they making it tough on us this time around. With stage curators such as All Gone Pete Tong, Future House, It’s A Trap, and Trance Addict, this year’s festival has something to offer every lover of electronic music. If you’re a lover of a bit of everything like myself, this years schedules will include a lot of running from stage to stage, so get your pocketbooks out and do your best to figure out your plan of action.
On Friday, the festival kicks off with Ferry Corsten’s Full On stage featuring Pierce Fulton, Andrew Bayer, Cosmic Gate, and Mr. Full On himself. Also we have the filthified It’s A Trap featuring some of your favorite grime from artists like NGHTMRE, Dotcom, Ookay, and even NBA superstar Shaquille O’Neil. Additional stages include: How What and Where, the hardstyle paradise Q-Dance stage, and The Magician’s potion stage. As for your mainstage performers, we kick the day off with Brazabelle, followed by appearances from DVBBS, Benny Benassi, and Showtek, and we close out the night with everyone’s favorites: Steve Angello, Kaskade, and Tiesto.
Saturday brings us the All Gone Pete Tong stage, the Trance Addict stage, and the Drum and Bass inspired Hospitality stage. From Pete Tong we can hear sets from artists like Justin Jay, Get Real (Claude VonStroke and Green Velvet), as well as the Essential Mix maestro himself. For you trance heads out there, expect to be graced with euphoria-inducing melodies from Mark Sixma, Aly & Fila, and Paul van Dyk. And like I said, tough choices are everywhere. To close the night, you will have to choose between artists like Adventure Club vs. Seven Lions, Flux Pavilion vs. Afrojack, Hardwell vs. Bassnectar vs. Get Real vs. Paul van Dyk. Kill me now.
But the hardest choices come on Sunday. Let’s rip the band-aid off now with this one: Armin van Buuren vs. Porter Robinson (Live) vs. Excision vs. Big Gigantic vs. Thomas Jack vs. Jaime Jones. How can you possibly even make that decision… And to top it off, whichever set you decide to go to from this list of incredible talent, you will have the pleasure of witnessing a total lunar eclipse! Does that affect your decision making process at all? In addition to these festival closers, Sunday brings you stages like All Your Bass Are Belong to Us, Thomas Jack’s Tropical House stage, and the Live Stage. All Your Bass Are Belong to Us brings talent like Andy C, Snails, and Milo & Otis, while if you’re feeling like a cold margarita and some sand between your toes sounds more appealing, catch acts like Klingande, Matoma, and Sam Feldt over at the Trop House stage. Live acts present at the fest include Zoogma, Bakermat, and Rudimental, and for those of you Main Stage junkies, feast your eyes and ears on Mako, The Chainsmokers, Martin Garrix, and David Guetta.
