The recap of day 2

With absolutely perfect weather conditions, there was nothing that could get the smile off of all the happy faces in the crowd and on the stages, but it also caused some of the 'indoor' stages to be a bit empty in the afternoon. Besides the weather, the Swedish fans brought another beautiful element to the second day of Tomorrowland. During the set of Nicky Romero they unfolded a huge Swedish flag with a picture of Avicii, and covered a large part of the crowd with it. It shows once more that Tim has not been forgotten by either the fans and his colleagues.

Another huge thing from yesterday was the live performance from no other than Dua Lipa, on Martin Garrix's takeover of the Organ of Harmony stage. She is currently dropping one hit after the other, and her popularity could be felt throughout the enormous crowd during her performance. After that, the band equipment had to be removed and the stage was prepared for Martin himself to close out the night at his own stage. On the other side of town were the groovy beats spread out across the crowd with Kryder closing out the Axtone stage. Where the Freedom stage was a bit empty during the day, it rapidly filled during the sets of Axwell and Fatboy Slim. The area that was crowded for the entire day, was the Nervo Nation stage that was hosted by the two lovely ladies. This was also the case when Afrojack took over the same Youphoria stage yesterday, so maybe the Tomorrowland crowd is just really into Mushrooms.

Sunset Music Festival 2022: Here's Everything You Need to Know

Ahead of its massive return, we've put together a list of everything you need to know going into Sunset Music Festival 2022.

The Juno Awards introduced a new category this year: Underground Dance Single of the Year.

Possible due to Vini Vici's Mainstage performance on Friday, the Psygathering takeover of the Arch stage also got a lot of people bouncing to its massive basslines. Some of the artists played into this by playing mashups with more mainstream tunes as well, something you would not have seen in the Psy-Trance world three years ago. In addition, Armin van Buuren was heavily waving the Psy-flag during his Mainstage set as well (he also waved his arms a lot. Like, really a lot). The last couple of years he started the first half of his set with more Bigroomish tunes, but currently the Psy influences can be found from start to finish. While doing so, Armin was arguably the best Mainstage performance of the night. 

Armin finished his set with some banging Hardstyle, something that was further represented in the newly designed Atmosphere stage. Q-Dance had the honor to take over the huge 32-meter high tent, from which the whole ceiling is filled with lights. Across the whole day, the visuals and stage design will absolutely blow you away. Video material can be found on our Instagram

What's in store for today? 

Again the Mainstage will show us some diversity with acts like Timmy Trumpet, Coone, and Paul Kalkbrenner, before Steve Angello and Martin Garrix will close out Tomorrowland's first weekend. Apparently, Martin Garrix is again missing in the Live stream schedule, which could possibly mean that the people at home are missing out on the official closing act! Instead, they can watch the other broadcasted stages until the end, which contain Dimity Vegas & Like Mike, Andrea Oliva, and Martin Solveig. However, it is still a disappointment when the Mainstage closing won't be streamed. On the other stages, Trance Energy will be represented again, after last year's successful comeback. Sven Väth will close the lovely mushroom (Youphoria) stage with a two-hour set, and Robin Schulz has invited his friends to join him under the dragon's wings at the Rose Garden stage. Therefore, the final day of weekend one contains plenty of awesome sets to witness. Enjoy!
