With Tomorrowland 2018's two weekends now committed to beautifully debauched memory we can confirm the ten most played tracks from the Belgian mega-festival.
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.
Steve Angello has spoken about the pressures of touring and the effects it can have on even the most successful artist’s mental health.
In a recent interview with Swedish publication Aftonbladet’s digital radio segment, the Swedish House Mafia member was asked about how the recent death of his friend and contemporary Avicii aged just 28 had affected him.
Creamfields have announced they will host an orchestral tribute for Avicii at the festival which takes place from 23rd to 26th August.
The Kaleidoscope Orchestra will play their debut performance, which is said to include the tribute to the late EDM megastar as well as a number of other dance classics.
Announcing on social media, Creamfields said the 40-piece instrumental would “deliver an unmissable set to honour one of dance music’s biggest talents”.
Alesso, Major Lazer, Armin van Buuren and many more are also set to play Creamfields.
Axwell ^ Ingrosso paid a touching tribute to late EDM star Avicii at Ultra Europe this past weekend.
The duo, who make up two thirds of the recently reformed Swedish House Mafia, paused their set at the massive festival in Split, Croatia to ask festivalgoers to hold their phones or lighters aloft while they played a mash-up of their own track ‘Don’t You Worry Child’ with one of Avicii’s hits, ‘Wake Me Up’. You can watch a video of the moment below.
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."
Carl Cox has spoken about how he felt following the tragic passing of EDM star Avicii in April of this year.
In a recent interview with BBC Radio 1 the legendary UK DJ said that, following the news that the 28 year-old DJ/producer had been found dead in his hotel room in Oman, he was “very, very sad because I could see he was not in control of himself.”
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).
