Since the 2021 edition of Tomorrowland Winter was frozen by the icy bite of COVID-19, the iconic festival brand is going virtual.
In lieu of the the snowy festival utopia, which debuted in 2019, Tomorrowland is hosting a one-of-a-kind streaming event live from Alpe d’Huez, a scenic ski resort situated in the Central French Western Alps. On Thursday, March 25th, they will air a series of live performances from the resort, which they transformed "into a stunning concert venue for a magical winter wonderland."
Tomorrowland Winter organizers have tapped an all-French lineup for the festivities, recruiting dance music superstars Martin Solveig and Kungs, who will perform a collaborative DJ set for the first time ever. Joining them at a skyscraping elevation of 6,889 feet for the 2.5-hour show will be French compatriots Ofenbach and Klingande.

"I never thought music would take me to the places it has, but I’m most excited to see the places that it will lead me to next."
"The COVID-19 pandemic made us realize how precious small things are," Solveig said. "We’re on top of the world here at Alpe d’Huez and feel very lucky to be part of this."
"I’m working on a lot of new music at the moment," added Kungs, who said he's debuting a new song during the stream and planning to release an album sometime after summer 2021. "The vibe of the album I’m working on is really happy and positive."
You can tune into the virtual Tomorrowland Winter event on Thursday, March 25th at 16:00 CET (11AM ET, 8AM PT), exclusively on Tomorrowland's website.
