Glastonbury Festival is one of the world’s most famous music and performing arts festivals. Embracing each and every genre across the spectrum, from rock and pop to minimal house, techno and full-throttle drum ‘n’ bass, music-lovers flock to its spiritual fields down in Somerset.
Famed for its huge headline sets on its hallowed Pyramid Stage, which has recently played host to the Arctic Monkeys, Rolling Stones, Kanye West and Radiohead, it’s the other side of the festival that really sets the heart racing. Take a stroll through Shangri-La – the festival’s nighttime district – and you’ll be thrown into a themed world full of immersive theatre and shenanigans, soundtracked by electronic music’s finest and underground names.
Or just up the path, there’s Arcadia Pangea, the re-located, re-used industrial crane structure, open to only the most hardcore ravers, or the more cosier circus and cabaret field, where some of the country’s best comedians come together with drag queens and trapeze magicians.
Tomorrowland is a EDM and electronic music festival held in Boom, Belgium. Tomorrowland is the world’s biggest dance music festival, bringing an A-list lineup of DJs from across the dance music spectrum to Boom in Belgium each summer.
That means whether you’re into EDM, house, techno, hardstyle, or all of the above, you’ll be surrounded by only the best. Its recent lineups have included The Chainsmokers, Carl Cox, Martin Garrix, Armin van Buuren, Tiësto and many more.
In addition to music, Tomorrowland also has some interesting activities such as dancing, camping, party and more.
Throw in its incredible stage design, production, and quirky surprises, and it’s easy to see why Tomorrowland’s tickets sell out in record time each year.
Now regarded as a mecca for all dance music fans, immersing yourself into this mythological wonderland has to be high up on every music fan’s bucket list.
