During this year’s Top 100 Clubs poll, we added an extra category, to reflect the fact that many dance music fans were experiencing the scene outside of traditional nightclubs.
We asked every single Top 100 Clubs voter to pick their favourite dance music Festival, alongside their club choices. We can now reveal the result - Belgium's Tomorrowland has been voted the World’s No.1 Festival!
Since launching in 2005, Tomorrowland have redefined the electronic music festival landscape. From the outset, their distinctive fantasy theme and outlandish production have set them apart from the competition.
With over 4 million subscribers to their YouTube channel and and recent aftermovies clocking over 125 million views, it is clear that the Tomorrowland experience goes way beyond the 160,000 attendees of the festival. In this modern world, fans are developed online and can experience some of the festival’s vibe from watching the live streams.
In 2015, Tomorrowland has grown into a global superpower. Sister event TomorrowWorld is making waves in the USA, this month saw the first ever Tomorrowland Brazil and the festival has created global stars including residents Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, who now sit at No.2 in the Top 100 DJs poll.
It is fantastic and sometimes surreal that we, in Belgium, The United States and Brazil can bring so many people from all corners of the globe, to join, to share and to be inspired during the most beautiful weekend that the year can give us. We hope that we can continue this for the next 100 years.”
