Tomorrowland has seriously done it again. The world popular music festival has officially released its 2020 lineup and we couldn’t be any happier with it. This year’s lineup features talented artists such as Illenium, Nervo, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Martin Garrix, Infected Mushroom, Oliver Heldens, Armin Van Buuren, and many more. You can check
Tomorrowland has been making headlines over the past few weeks, and now the festival has dropped perhaps the most newsworthy information yet. The Boom, Belgium-based event has released the full 2020 lineup one day after teasing that Eric Prydz‘s HOLOSPHERE live show was set to return to this year’s iteration of the festival.
Last year, Tomorrowland celebrated its 15th anniversary, and this year’s lineup is as momentous as the last. In addition to releasing the artists who will be playing, Tomorrowland has given a detailed breakdown of which artists will be featured on which stage by event day. This can be viewed here.
Highlights of the weekend include NGHTMRE going back-to-back with Jauz, Illenium, Tiësto, Martin Garrix, Camelphat, and more. A few acts, including Armin van Buuren, will be playing multiple times throughout each weekend, just on different stages for each performance.
Unfortunately for Swedish House Mafia fans, the trio will not be there. However, Axwell will be playing a solo set.
Worldwide pre-registration for all Tomorrowland tickets and Dreamville packages is open now.

A singular stream of i_o‘s remix of “Mr. Navigator” reveals one truth: i_o has left nothing in his meticulous composition up to cruise control. The producer injects Armin van Buuren’s pumping, main stage-destined original with a high dose of intoxicating underground allure.
i_o’s revamp is intensive. The tech-trance classification of van Buuren’s track still applies to i_o’s stimulating revision, but nearly all else—excluding Tempo Giusto’s distinguishing vocal—is new. The crown jewel of i_o’s editing is the beat, which pointedly and precisely pounds from the very first second of the producer’s take. Best buckle up.
The tantalizing character of i_o’s submission deepens with atmospheric flushes of synths that fade in and out with fury. Breathing and beeping samples contribute to the mau5trap native’s cinematic, sonic drama, which unfolds for a near six minutes. If i_o hadn’t powerfully asserted the magnetic force of his aural design within the electronic purview, he certainly does so now with “Mr. Navigator (i_o Remix).”

Since 2005, Tomorrowland has been blazing a path for electronic music fans all over the world. This past October, the iconic festival celebrated its 15th anniversary year with a special performance at ADE.
The Amsterdam event, called Our Story, featured a lineup that included Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Afrojack, Armin van Buuren, Tiësto, Steve Aoki, The Bloody Beetroots, GOOSE, Netsky, and M.I.K.E. These chart-topping names were joined by members of the Metropole Orchestra, who added a whole new dimension to tracks like van Buuren’s “This Is What It Feels Like” and countless others over the course of the two-and-a-half-hour performance.

2019, a year to never forget. Those words hold a certain truth for both Armin van Buuren and Trance fans from all over the world. With an eight-hour broadcast of A State Of Trance during Amsterdam Dance Event, sold-out events in Utrecht, Madrid, Kiev, Miami, Mexico, Bay Area and Tomorrowland to celebrate the 900th episode
The post A State Of Trance 2019 (Mixed by Armin van Buuren) appeared first on EDM Sauce.
Earlier this year, Armin van Buuren released his seventh studio album, Balance, perfectly showcasing the diversity in sound that fans can expect to hear from the producer today. Whether it’s progressive trance or radio crossover tracks, among other genres, Balance has it.
One of the featured singles on the album is Armin’s collaborative effort with Ne-Yo, titled “Unlove you.” The producer has now put out his own club mix of the single. The original version of “Unlove You” features dance-pop crossover production elements that let Ne-Yo’s vocals shine through as the real allure of the single. Van Buuren’s club mix sees the producer enlist pulsing synths and a completely transformed backdrop that’s as polarizing as Ne-Yo’s vocals themselves. It is the perfect spin on the release to make the track festival- and club-ready, guaranteed to appeal to van Buuren’s trance-loving fan base.

Armin van Buuren’s “Unlove You” has received the Nicky Romero treatment. A staple of the trance tastemaker’s seventh studio album, “Unlove You” melded mid-tempo electronic with Ne-Yo’s R&B finesse. Sitting in languid contrast to some of the LP’s higher-octane inclusions, “Unlove You” offered a reprieve from the main stage-centric sound that van Buuren channeled on Balance.
Romero’s revamp arrives as the animated sonic sister to van Buuren’s original. Boasting a bubbly musical personality, the alternative version that Romero puts forth concentrates its revision in the song’s chord boosted ascents and descents. Romero melodically lifts “Unlove You,” transforming it into an upbeat tune that is designed for live sets. Tasteful and sparing in his alterations, Romero preserves the rest of “Unlove You’s” frame in his club-suitable spin.
