Tomorrowland Festival has released its lineup for this year's event that features electronic royalties such as popular music producer Steve Aoki and pop newcomer Dua Lipa.
World's Best Party
The music festival, which often touts itself as the "world's best," will once again bring the hottest names in the electronic music scene to Belgium. On Friday, Feb. 2, organizers have released the "first phase" of the lineup for this summer.
Tomorrowland showrunners Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike will be among the performers at the music festival. The lineup also includes Alison Wonderland, Adam Beyer, Above and Beyond, Carl Cox, Ace Ventura, Fatboy Slim, and more. The event also promises more performers to be announced in the coming months.
Pop's Dua Lipa and rapper Lil Pump do stand out from the EDM heavy lineup. Dua Lipa, the 22-year-old singer-songwriter from England, is best known for songs such as "New Rules," "IDGAF," "Be The One," and "Scared To Be Lonely." Meanwhile, Lil Pump is the man behind the massively popular single "Gucci Gang."

Another notable artists on the list are some of Belgium's homegrown artists such as Charlotte De Witte, who will reportedly curate her own KNTXT stage.
