Tomorrowland has just revealed even more artists to the official Tomorrowland 2018 lineup. As Tomorrowland is set for its two weekend festival in July, the Belgium-based festival is gearing up for one of its biggest years yet. In today’s ninth wave of artist announcements, Tomorrowland revealed DJs such as Afrojack, Alan Walker, Benny Benassi, Duke
Tomorrowland has announced another new wave of artists for its flagship Belguim event slated for two weekends in July.
Joining the collection of already astonishing talent includes Afrojack, Alan Walker, Benny Benassi, Blasterjaxx, Chuckie, Craig David (Presents TS5), Duke Dumont, Erick Morillo, Galantis, Gui Boratto, Idris Elba, Nicole Moudaber, Ookay, Quintino, Ricardo Villalobos, Salvatore Ganacci, Tujamo, and Ummet Ozcan.
While the festival has yet to deliver on its potential Swedish House Mafia booking, time shall tell whether the festival delivers on the “unexpected,” as it has confirmed plans to continue rolling out artists into the week.
Follow the announcement on Tomorrowland’s Twitter.
For months, Ultra Music Festival had been saying “expect the unexpected” leading up to its 20th anniversary celebration. While many believed the phrase to mean Daft Punk was planning a return to the festival circuit, viral rumors all but confirmed a Swedish House Mafia reunion. After all, the iconic Swedish trio hadn’t performed together since their One Last Tour in 2013, with Steve Angello stating to HuffPost, “I just wasn’t having fun anymore. It was this humongous monster. We felt…tired.”
In addition to premiering three unreleased songs at Ultra 20, Axwell concluded their set by saying, “We are Swedish House Mafia for life this time.” Steve Angello’s talent manager, Scooter Braun, then took to his Instagram story following the set, and hinted, essentially confirming that Sunday’s SHM reunion was “the beginning” of something much larger.
Fans immediately began speculating over whether an arena world tour was in the works, or a possible summer festival run, despite the fact that most large festival bookings have been finalized for the 2018 season.
Following the SMH reunion at Ultra Miami last weekend, Tomorrowland may have further fueled fan hopes when they posted an image of the Belgian festival’s main stage on Twitter with the caption, “expect the unexpected.” The tagline is the exact same phrase that Ultra used when announcing the “secret guest” slot for it’s 20th edition.
Nothing has been confirmed, and the tweet has since been deleted, but the coin of phrase has sparked controversy that another secret guest appearance by SHM may be in the programming for Tomorrowland’s 2018 edition, “The Story Of Planaxis.”
For months now, Ultra Music Festival had been telling everyone to “expect the unexpected” for its 20th anniversary. While many people thought that this may finally be Daft Punk’s return to the music scene, rumors were flying about the iconic Swedish trio. At 10am PST, Tomorrowland shared the picture below to UNITE with Tomorrowland |

Just like that, Tomorrowland sold out within an hour of tickets going on sale worldwide on Saturday, Feb. 3.
Despite the Belgian festival’s expansion last year, Tomorrowland sold out 400,000 tickets over two weekends within 64 minutes. This is not surprising given the festival’s global prominence over the years, having recently been declared the “largest, most celebrated social media music event in the world” in 2017.
Tomorrowland 2018 is shaping up to be the festival’s most jam-packed lineup yet, with recent additions Dua Lipa, Nervo, Lil Pump, Sam Feldt Live, Rødhåd b2b Âme, Slushii, and Steve Aoki joining an already monstrous bill. Stage hosts include Martin Garrix‘s STMPD RCRDS, Eric Prydz‘s Pryda Arena, Adam Beyer & Ida Engberg‘s Drumcode, Monstercat, and Charlotte De Witte‘s KNTXT techno concept.
The first weekend of Tomorrowland takes place July 20-22, and the second will take place the following week from July 27-29. View the full lineup by visiting Tomorrowland’s website.

One of the largest, most illustrious music festivals in the business, Tomorrowland has released its first bill of names for both its July 20–22 and July 27–29 dates.
