In the weeks leading up to Tomorrowland's landmark 15th edition, the Boom, Belgium festival's organizers announced special "Symphony of Unity" performances for either weekend. The Metropole Orchestra paid homage to some of EDM's biggest hits - from the songs at the worldwide movement's roots to those trending in the modern day.
According to 1001Tracklists, the weekend two medley included renditions of "Insomnia" by Faithless, "Children" by the late Robert Miles, and "For An Engel" by Paul van Dyk. On the more recent end of the spectrum were orchestral versions of "Losing It" by FISHER, "Opus" by Eric Prydz, and "Shivers" by Armin van Buuren.
The 2019 edition of Tomorrowland saw headliners like Above & Beyond, Claude VonStroke, Nina Kraviz and Seven Lions. The absence of Swedish House Mafia on the roster after what many interpreted as cryptic campaigning for their appearance elicited uproar from attendees disappointed by the billing of 3 Are Legend as main stage closers for both weekends.
