Don Diablo tomorrowland 2019 live

Don Diablo brings melodic vibes to his latest Tomorrowland performance


The grand master of the future house movement, Dutch maestro Don Diablo is best known for his Hexagon label, and army of followers, known as the Hexagonians. Invited by his fellow Dutch DJ, Tiësto, to play on the legend’s Musical Freedom stage, Don delivered a truly memorable set to the people of Tomorrowland throughout his 90 minute slot.

Dropping the brilliant ‘Pizza’, a team-up between Chris Lake and Chris Lorenzo (aka Anti-Up), the crowd all sang in unison to the track’s hilarious yet relatable lyrics (‘When does the club shut? All I want is pizza. God I’m really drunk’) before Don launched a frenzy of his own productions, including ‘Chemicals’, his collaboration with Tiësto, with the Musical Freedom label owner joining him on stage. Ending his set with an emotional tribute to Avicii, aka Tim Bergling, who passed away in April this year, Diablo fused a range of the Swede’s biggest hits, including ‘Wake Me Up’, ‘Fade Into Darkness’, and his own ReHex of  ‘Levels’ vs Eric Prydz’s ‘Pjanoo.’

With acts like Brohug, Oliver Heldens, and Jauz also joining the Musical Freedom tent, there really was no better place to be on Friday night as Tomorrowland 2018 opened with a bang!
