The first weekend of Tomorrowland 2018 took place last weekend and, as you can see from these amazing restreams, it was a pretty special time.
One palpable absence from this year’s festival was late EDM star Avicii - real name Tim Bergling – whose tragic death aged 28 was announced in April, shocking the dance music community and the wider world.
Nicky Romero has revealed that he has “two folders full” of unreleased Avicii material in a new interview.
Speaking to Ultra Singapore, Romero also explained that he may never release the music out of respect for the late EDM megastar.
"I don’t know if it morally feels right to me to work on songs that the original composer has not approved," Romero told Ultra Singapore.
"I know that Avicii was really a perfectionist, and I kind of feel bad if I put something out not knowing if he wants to put it out. So that's kind of what holds me back, out of respect for him."
Nicky Romero paid tribute to Avicii at Ultra Singapore over the weekend by playing the late EDM superstar’s unreleased Chris Martin collaboration, ‘Heaven’. You can watch a clip of it below.
Romero has been playing the track at a few shows recently, including his set at World Club Dome earlier this month (June).
Martin Garrix’s unreleased Matisse and Sadko collaboration, currently dubbed ‘Forever’, made its way into Nicky Romero’s Ultra Japan performance over the weekend.
The unreleased track was one of many among Romero’s performance. Between Garrix and his EDM cohorts, barely a massive dance music festival went off during the summer of 2017 without some fresh Garrix tunes.
Ultra Mexico has added KSHMR, Knife Party, Nicky Romero, Art Department and Matador to its debut festival in Foro Pegaso. The event will take place 6th and 7th October.
Ultra Worldwide’s flagship house and techno brand, RESISTANCE, will feature sets by Seth Troxler, Richie Hawtin, Damian Lazarus and Dubfire.
Amsterdam Dance Event announced Rødhåd, Marcel Dettmann, Apollonia and more for Awakenings at the event last month (June), and have now revealed over 700 more names for the event, which will take place from Wednesday 19th to Sunday 23rd October in Amsterdam.
Added to the bill are Hardwell, Robert Hood, Nicky Romero, Roman Flügel and Craig David presents TS5, whilst RÜFÜS, SUUNS, Jessy Lanza, CUT_ and many others will also perform.
Nicky Romero has explained in a new Facebook post that he has been suffering from anxiety for two and a half years.
After being asked by fans why he’d been quiet on the production front, Nicky decided to answer their question with honesty and explained that, though he’d been touring too, the main reason has been his anxiety.
