Tomorrowland is set to live-stream sets from some of this year’s confirmed artists, including Armin van Buuren, Afrojack and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, as part of its UNITE project, a series of live-streaming events across various countries connecting with the main festival in Belgium via a satellite in real time.
Announced earlier this year, the 2018 UNITE livestream series is set to take place Saturday, 28th July, across seven locations around the world including Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates), Italy, Lebanon, Malta, Mexico, Spain and Taiwan. The series will include sets from local and international DJs on the festival’s main stage, the UNITE stage, and will also highlight the festival’s production elements and atmosphere.
The individual UNITE series events synchronize with the special effects from the main festival in Belgium and offer a curated line-up for “a unique show that allows you to escape reality,” according to the Tomorrowland website.
In other Tomorrowland news, the festival recently shared the individual stage splits for this year’s edition and also launched its first music school with Lost Frequencies, funded entirely by contributions from festival attendees.
The sold-out Tomorrowland this year welcomes hundreds of artists across two weekends — 20th through 22nd July (weekend one) and 27th through 29th July (weekend two) in Boom, Belgium — including Nicole Moudaber, Ricardo Villalobos, Carl Cox and Porter Robinson as his new Virtual Self project. The line-up also features stages curated by Martin Garrix, Eric Prydz, Charlotte de Witte, recent DJ Mag North America cover stars NERVO, Adam Beyer presenting Drumcode and Lee Burridge presenting All Day I Dream.
