Tomorrowland has launched its first music school with Lost Frequencies, AKA Felix de Laet, attending the opening at Sekha, high in the Nepalese Himalayas.
The building has been funded entirely by contributions from attendees of the Belgian festival, which this year runs over the weekends of Friday 20th to Sunday 22nd, and Friday 27th to Sunday 29th July.
Belgian rising star Lost Frequencies, aka Felix De Laet, is celebrating amassing 1 billion streams with the release of a new single, 'Crazy', alongside Zonderling.
As well as the new single, the Belgian DJ and producer has also announced the creation of his own label alongside Armada Music called Found Frequencies.
"I’m really happy to see the launch of my label, Found Frequencies," said Laet in a press release.
"It will serve as a home to my own music, and I hope it will become the go-to label for up-and-coming talents as well, as it goes way past chill vibes only.
Don Diablo will be spending February of 2018 touring across the United States. The eight-date Future tour kicks off 8th February in San Diego.

The multi-platinum-selling artist, otherwise known as Felix De Laet, has enjoyed a fast ascension to stardom and continues on a sky-high trajectory.
Winning countless accolades to his name since his first No.1 selling record, this year he released his debut album ‘Less Is More’, including breakthrough hits ‘Reality’ and ‘Are You With Me’.
Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike have shared the full set of one of their series of shows titled Bringing The Noise, which took place at Antwerp Arena last year.
You can watch the performance below, which is claimed to feature the largest LED production in the world.
For Bringing The Noise, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike invited a number of high profile guests including Lost Frequencies, Afrojack and Steve Angello.
Diplo and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike collaborated on the track ‘Hey Baby’ with vocalist Deb’s Daughter last year, which was released through Mad Decent in October.
Now Diplo’s label has dropped a remix package of the track, featuring reworks from Steve Aoki, Blasterjaxx and Lost Frequencies.
DJ style: “Melodic house/deep house/electro-house.”
Best known for: “Good vibes.” Fave tune of 2018: “Chris Lake ‘Turn Off The Lights’.”
Breakthrough DJ/producer of 2018: “San Holo.”
Rocketing into the Top 100 last year at No.26, Belgium’s Felix De Laet has enjoyed an equally rocketing career trajectory since he broke into the big-time with his breakthrough 2014 smash, ‘Are You With Me’. Establishing a partnership with Armin van Buuren’s iconic Armada camp, where he dropped his ‘Less Is More’ album a few years later, Felix says the biggest development this year was his live debut at his country’s Tomorrowland festival.
“This year has been really big for me,” he tells DJ Mag. “I’ve been working hard on my very first live show, which involved no DJ gear on the stage at all! The debut at Tomorrowland was 100% the highlight of my summer. Other than that, I’m finishing my second album, which will be a little bit more electronic than the first one, though it’s still rocking those melodies I usually work on.”
Additionally, Felix points to the launch of his Found Frequencies label as a highlight, and supporting upcoming acts like Two Pauz, Mordkey & Mastrovita and Petit Navire. “I can’t wait to show everybody what’s coming up next!”

Multi-platinum-selling artist Felix De Laet, aka Lost Frequencies, has enjoyed a fast ascension to stardom and continues on a sky-high trajectory. Winning countless accolades to his name since his first No.1 selling record, this year he released his debut album ‘Less Is More’, including breakthrough hits ‘Reality’ and ‘Are You With Me’.
Miami Music Week saw him play back to back shows, including hosting his very own Lost Frequencies & Friends party. This year he sold out a headline arena show in his hometown of Belgium, playing the Lotta Arena to 9000 frenzied fans. But the gig schedule hasn’t stopped Felix’s workflow; he also released a deluxe version of the album, remixing every track into club-friendly versions including garage, deep, tech and techno to satisfy the dancefloors.
“Besides touring all around the world playing the most amazing festivals and clubs and meeting so many different people, I played Tomorrowland main stage after David Guetta, which was unreal, and hosted my own Lost Frequencies & Friends stage the second weekend, which had to be shut down due to over-capacity,” he tells DJ Mag. “It’s been a wild ride so far.”
