Tomorrowland announces first headline acts for 2017 festival

Widely regarded as Europe’s biggest and best dance music festival, Tomorrowland is always a momentous event in the calendar. And with the 2017 edition now expanding to be spread across two consecutive weekends, this year’s festival is already shaping up to be the biggest of all time!

Going in hard from the off, Tomorrowland have now announced the first batch of artists to be performing at the show-stopping event in Boom, Belgium, across 21st-23rd, and 28th-30th July. In an announcement that proves the festival is determined to make the 2017 celebrations the biggest yet, Axwell Λ Ingrosso, Armin van Buuren, Eric Prydz and Carl Cox will all play the mainstage, with the latter set to perform a monster three-hour set.

The likes of Alison Wonderland, Claptone, Eats Everything, Jauz, Kölsch, Oliver Heldens, Paul Van Dyk, and Solomun will all also play over the course of the two weekends, on various stages throughout the festival. And with stages hosted by the likes of Martin Solveig’s My House, Andrea Oliva’s ANTS, Mark Knight’s Toolroom Live and Oliver Heldens’ Heldeep at this year’s event, there is sure to be a truly diverse range of music for fans to enjoy.

Last week, Elrow also revealed they will also host a stage at Tomorrowland this year, which is the first time the famous Spanish party brand have appeared at the Belgium-based mega festival following many years of hosting their legendary parties around Ibiza. The full line-up so far can be viewed on the official Tomorrowland website, but with a whole host of more acts to be announced over the coming days and months, Tomorrowland is already shaping up to be THE hottest event in this summer’s dance music schedule. Pre-sale tickets will go on sale this coming Saturday at 17.00 CET for those who have already registered.
