Hardwell hasn't been booked for Tomorrowland 2017, marking the second year in a row the Dutchman will miss the event.
The two-time DJ Mag Top 100 DJs winner was a regular on the Tomorrowland bill for years prior to 2016, his sets there helping catapult him to global superstardom.
However, messaging Hardwell on Facebook using the keyword 'Tomorrowland' now brings up an automatic response, saying: “I’m not playing at Tomorrowland this year, for more dates check out http://djhardwell.com/tourdates.”
A host of other big names will still play Tomorrowland this year, including current No.1 DJ in the world, Martin Garrix, Deadmau5, Eric Prydz and many more, check out the individual stages here.
