In true Martin Garrix fashion, the DJ also showcased the talent from his own STMPD Records label, treating the crowd to numerous unreleased tracks from artists like DubVision, Brooks, and Julian Jordan. This not only emphasized his commitment to promoting new talents but also added an element of exclusivity to the set, leaving fans excited for what’s to come from the label.

One of the most emotional moments of the night came when Martin dropped his beloved track ‘High On Life.’ The song’s euphoric melody and uplifting lyrics resonated deeply with the crowd, creating a sense of unity and joy among thousands of festival-goers.

As the night drew to a close, Martin Garrix had one final surprise up his sleeve. Before bidding farewell to the crowd, he treated them to his latest banger, ‘Hurricane,’ a collaboration with both  Sentinel and Bonn. As the last notes of ‘Hurricane’ echoed through the festival grounds, Tomorrowland outdid itself once again with a mesmerizing firework display that illuminated the night sky. The colorful explosions synchronized perfectly with the music, leaving everyone in a state of wonder and marking a fitting end to a weekend filled with unforgettable experiences.
