Martin Garrix delivers spectacular ANIMA performance at Tomorrowland 2019

The first weekend of the Tomorrowland 15th anniversary is in in the books (quite literally) with each performer showing the best they have, with Dutch superstar Martin Garrix being one of them.

On Friday Martin Garrix brought his full ANIMA concept to Tomorrowland for the very first time, playing on the Lotus stage. The Lotus stage is Tomorrowland’s equivalent to a live stage which has previously been used as the mainstage of Tomorrowland Winter and replaced the Organ of Harmony stage which was based on the 2015 mainstage.

When he started with his ANIMA Intro fans knew they were in for a treat. The set was filled with the finest selection of his productions, old and new, and various mashups. Shortly after the starting, Garrix continued playing one banger after another like ‘No Sleep (DubVision Remix)’, ‘Virus’ his collaboration with MOTi feat. Jenny Wahlström, ‘Now That I’ve Found You’ and ‘Animals’ – the breakthrough track of the Dutch producer.

Continuing with ‘In the Name of Love (DallasK Remix)’ halfway through the set Garrix got into some more emotional lyrics when he played ‘So Far Away’ feat. David Guetta, Jamie Scott and Romy Dia shortly after and ‘Scared to be Lonely (Dubvision Remix)’ featuring Dua Lipa.

Towards the end, he went all in again, closing out with ‘Forbidden Voices’ and ‘High on Life’ making it a perfect combination of forward pushing beats and emotions combined with his own ANIMA concept. Check out the setlist and see yourself.

Martin Garrix, who closed the festival for the past few years, exclusively performed Friday of the first weekend and will not perform weekend 2. An official recording of his set has not been uploaded as of yet. Weekend 2 is set to start on July 26th, 2019 through 28th and features headliners like Adam Beyer, Armin Van Buuren, DJ Snake, Eric Prydz, Fedde Le Grand, Tale of Us and many many more. For those who were not lucky enough to be there, some sets will be live-streamed on the Tomorrowland website and while we wait for Weekend 2, fans can still listen to Tomorrowland’s own One World Radio.
