During the weekend, 4 out of the 17 stages will be broadcasted via Tomorrowland.com, in order to show the fans at home what is happening at the festival’s biggest stages. Besides that, we will have you covered with a daily update about what happened and what to look at for at [arguably] the most popular festival in the world. To start this series of updates, we will take a look at Friday’s schedule.

Tomorrowland 2017

2017 Mainstage

Diversity on the Mainstage 
Where Tomorrowland’s mainstage was usually dominated by the more mainstream acts, the first Friday has some pleasant surprises in store for us. The madness will kick off with a daybreak session from the legend Carl Cox, which quite surprisingly will be his only set at the festival. In addition to Carl Cox, Techno will also be represented by Joris Voorn in the Mainstage’s evening. Another surprise will be the performance of Vini Vici, who brought their Psy-trance genre to the more mainstream music lovers. This more or less started with their collaboration with Armin van Buuren and continued through tracks with W&W and DV & LM. It will be interesting to see whether they keep going with their own 140 bpm flow, or adjust a bit to the Mainstage crowd and acts around them. This because Vini Vici will be followed by Bonzai All Stars feat. Airwave, from which a more old-school Progressive Trance sound can be expected. With the start of Netsky in the evening, the Mainstage line-up slowly goes mainstream on Friday since it will then present Hardwell, Axwell /\ Ingrosso and Steve Aoki to finish the night.

The other live-streamed stages 
Similar to the previous edition, Tomorrowland is broadcasting 4 out of the 17 stages for the entire weekend. Besides the Mainstage, it includes the huge inside Freedom stage that will be hosted by Tiësto’s Musical Freedom label on Friday. Besides a two hour performance from the legend himself, Oliver Heldens, Don Diablo and others will guarantee you a good time. In case you seek a slightly more emotional experience, make sure to pay a visit at the Anjunabeats stage that is hosted by Above & Beyond. They have opened the doors of their label’s office and released their finest acts like Gabriel & Dresden, Andrew Bayer, Grum, and Ilan Bluestone.

The forth streaming channel is surprisingly not the Drumcode stage, with acts like Ida Engberg, Richie Hawtin, and [obviously] Adam Beyer. Instead, Tomorrowland is going with performances from Chuckie, Black Coffee and Lil Pump from the Organ of Harmony stage. The other stages that won’t be streamed also include an infinite number of awesome acts. But when you are not that fortuned to witness it live, make sure to tune in to the Tomorrowland 2018 live stream for Friday's diverse program.
