A recent breach of Tomorrowland‘s attendee database exposed data on 64,000 ticket holders from the Boom, Belgium-based event’s 2014 iteration. As a Tomorrowland spokesperson conveyed to Flemish news source, De Standaard, Tomorrowland’s ticketer, Paylogic, contacted festival organizers when the 2014 system displayed unprovoked “unusual activity.” Paylogic promptly disconnected the database and reported the incident, while Tomorrowland reached out to those whose information was compromised via email.
Hackers are reportedly likely to have gathered the names, ages, postal codes, genders, and email addresses of the 64,000 in Tomorrowland’s 2014 database, but did not obtain personal payment information, passwords, or physical addresses. Only Tomorrowland’s 2014 goers were affected by the breach. Tomorrowland personnel ask those who did receive an email notification of data disclosure to be wary of potential and ensuing phishing attacks, and to ensure that all electronic correspondence comes from Tomorrowland.com.
Garrix is known for teasing unreleased tracks into his sets sometimes years before release. In that vein, hardcore fans will find both new singles all too familiar thanks to his episodic integration of the songs into both his live performance and his The Martin Garrix Show series.
“Yottabyte” combines a light chime melody with a string arrangement that cascades into an electro-house drop. Both releases this week have been a touch less commercial-leaning compared to recent collaborations like “Oceans” and “High on Life,” giving old-school Garrix fans reason to revel. Garrix debuted the tune during his Tomorrowland Mainstage set, a sublime backdrop for the momentous production.
Tomorrowland releases the initial headliners for the festival’s debut winter edition. Tomorrowland Winter was first announced in March, and the headliners consist of the usual suspects plus a couple surprises.
At an altitude of over 2000 meters, festival stages will be built in the Alpe d’Huez, one of the highest rated ski resorts in Europe. Tickets available will include amenities such as lodging, skiing passes, and a week to remember as the biggest EDM music festival in the world launches the new winter offshoot.

Van Buuren’s nearly two-hour set was one of three sets he played at one of the biggest festivals in the world. The other two sets took place on Tomorrowland’s infamous main stage. If four hours from the trance radio behemoth isn’t enough, he played a seven hour trance set at Untold Festival in Romania earlier this month and shared the full stream.
At 2018’s Tomorrowland, Anna Lunoe sat down with Steve Aoki on Beats 1 to talk pizza, plans for the upcoming album, and more. During the interview, Aoki reveals that there’s going to be some “out-of-the-box collabs” on Neon Future III, which is set for a September 2018 release. He mentions Blink-182 and Nicki Minaj, explaining that “Twitter is still used” when trying to get through to artists of that caliber.
It’s common knowledge that Aoki’s keen on experimenting with “out-of-the-box” artists/genres, as he’s worked with everyone from Fall Out Boy to Lil Yachty and more recently, Daddy Yankee. He’s also been hanging out in the studio with Colombian Reggaeton singer Maluma, so the possibilities feel quite endless at the moment.
A series of posters bearing three consecutive Adidas logos recently appeared in London, further fueling speculation that the Swedish supergroup would soon announce a 2019 tour given the posters’ resemblance to those that appeared in Miami just before SHM’s reunion at Ultra 20.
While Swedish House Mafia’s comeback at Ultra‘s 20th anniversary celebration might very well have been the worst kept ‘secret’ of 2018, an ensuing Swedish House appearance–whether in the form of a tour of in that of a Tomorrowland 2019 performance–could be the 2019 equivalent.
Angello recently chatted with Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, during which he told the source that the group would play Tomorrowland 2019 “by any means necessary.” Angello’s comment crystallizes the long suspected, but formally unconfirmed return of the trio, despite a lack of formal affirmation from Tomorrowland festival organizers.
Tomorrowland has not released the dates of its 2019 production, but given Angello’s remark, tickets to the Boom, Belgium based affair can only be expected to sell out with increased rapidity next year if “means” prove propitious.
“By Your Side” is just what fans would want from the duo, including a catchy vocal loop over melodic piano riffs that drop into some synth-based euphoria.
The Him have some major tour stops to close out the summer, including performances at Sziget Festival and Mysteryland. They’ll also take their talents to Ibiza, opening for powerhouse acts such as Kygo and Martin Garrix at Ushuaia.
Tomorrowland thanks its 2018 attendees for the memories via the release of its official after movie, shared to Tomorrowland’s Facebook page just one day after the two-weekend event’s conclusion on July 29.
