Armin van Buuren has shared his entire Tomorrowland weekend two set from this year’s set at the A State of Trance stage. Those who missed, or daydreamers trying to relive that day in festival history can now listen through the 43 tracks, in order, of which he played. Van Buuren opened with a dedication to his son, Remy, who turned five, before dropping into his new song with Vini Vici and Alok featuring Zafrir, “United.” Powering through, the trance legend hits songs produced by himself and close collaborators in the genre space such as W&W, Vini Vici, Gareth Emery, Dash Berlin, Conrad Sewell, Shapov, Josh Cumbee, Maor Levi, Mark Sixma, Super8 & Tab, STANDERWICK, Emma Hewitt, Ben Gold, and many more.

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.

Steve Aoki talks upcoming features on ‘Neon Future III’ with Anna LunoeSteve Aoki Jump

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.

Steve Angello: Swedish House Mafia will play Tomorrowland 2019 ‘by any means necessary’

Steve Angello: Swedish House Mafia will play Tomorrowland 2019 ‘by any means necessary’Swedish House Mafia Ultra 2013 Rukes

Sources with insight on Swedish House Mafia‘s future moves don’t get any more veritable than Steve Angello.

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.

Coming off a strong performance at Tomorrowland 2018, Dutch duo The Him have released a new heater, “By Your Side.” Released on Spinnin’ Records, this marks the third single in a row that Jeroen and Steven have called the thriving dance label home, following collaborations “Broken Love” with Parson James and “Jigsaw” with Jay Hardway.

“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.
