Tomorrowland Brasil Releases Phase 1 of Lineup
After expanding to the US for the first time in 2013 for TomorrowWorld, Dutch festival organizers ID&T are set to kick off its new festival in what is now Tomorrowland's third location, Brazil. In anticipation of the landmark event, phase 1 of Tomorrowland Brasil's lineup has been announced. The festival will feature the kind of lineups that fans have come to expect from Tomorrowland with a variety of dance music industry heavyweights, including Armin van Buuren, David Guetta, Hardwell, Steve Angello, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Steve Aoki.
Aside from the collection of EDM superstars, the festival also boasts a lineup of artists that will please fans of the underground dance scene, such as Sasha, Art Department, Solomun and Jamie Jones with more artists to be announced as we approach the start of the festival.
Amongst the 2015 stage hosts are the Steve Aoki-fronted Dim Mak Records, Ferry Corsten's 'Full On,' Hardwell's Revealed Recordings and Dutch hardstyle organizers Q-Dance to name a few.
Tickets for the inaugural Tomorrowland Brasil went on sale in the beginning of September 2014, and completely sold out in a mere 3 hours. As the organizers contemplate yet another expansion, the outrageous demand for dance music festivals in these current unchartered territories is something ID&T will keep in mind.
However, ID&T have squashed the swirling rumors regarding a new expansion to India. DNA India reports that the chief press officer for ID&T, Debby Wilsmen was quoted in a Belgian-based newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws, saying "This brief note is to respect and salute the Indian Tomorrowland fans and media, and to clarify that absolutely no decision has been made as to whether the next expansion of Tomorrowland will take place in India or in any other country in the world."
Tomorrowlad Brasil kicks off in the Itu district of São Paulo on May 1, 2015. Check out the phase 1 lineup below, and head to the official Tomorrowland Brasil website for more information.
