Speculation across the electronic dance music world is leading various publications to release information about unconfirmed activity surrounding the festival giant’s upcoming showcase this year.
The youthful and extraordinarily talented and successful Dutch DJ and producer, Martin Garrix announced on Twitter that his presence at the event would include only one live set during both weekends of Tomorrowland. Instead of performing at the glorious mainstage like every year, his set will take place on his own STMPD RCRDS stage on the first of the two weekends only.
Over the years, Martin Garrix has always unleashed his presence on the mainstage of Tomorrowland, so the dance music community is finding it to be a bit bizarre that he is only playing one set, and not on the mainstage. His disappointed main fan base have taken to social media to express their feelings about the announcement.
Rumors have hit the public that the reason for the change is due to the fact that the legendary trio Swedish House Mafia is going to step into the mainstage slot instead of Garrix.
In an August interview last year, an active member of the group and worldwide sensation, Steve Angello spoke to De Telegraaf and told them that the Swedish House Mafia was pulling all stops out on the mission to perform at Tomorrowland’s 15th anniversary this summer.
The event that people travel from around the globe to attend is slowly releasing names of performing artists, and where the Swedish House Mafia has not been included on the lineup as of yet, hype is leading us to believe that we can expect to see their name drop in the near future on the mainstage slot.
The only clues available are the interview with Angello and the fact that Garrix is not going to be playing on the mainstage, but those circumstances seem to be legitimate cause for the major publications to bite on the teasing information.
Time will tell if the fans can expect to be blessed with the Swedish House Mafia on the mainstage at Tomorrowland or not, but chances are pretty solid that it is going down. Stay tuned as updates get released.
