Friday, September 27th marks the official commencement of TomorrowWorld. The festival will harbor eight (that’s right- EIGHT) stages daily, each encompassing a theme or record label. While most of the stage themes will vary each day, some will remain intact the entirety of the festival. These select few include the Mainstage, Q Dance and Kitsune. Friday’s five additional stages will be as follows: Super You & Me, Dim Mak, Deep End, Full On and It’s a Trap. The below will provide you will a brief guide to Friday’s stages and who from each can’t be missed.

Who You Can’t Miss

Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike – Responsible for Tomorrowland 2013’s anthem AND TomorrowWorld 2013’s inaugural anthem, Belgium duo Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike are intimate intertwined with the festival. In fact, the duo produced the anthem for TomorrowLand in 2010 and have been doing so ever since. We suggest stopping by to check out their set and the massive Book of Wisdom stage to fully understand why Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike go hand-in-hand with TomorrowWorld.
