The first digital performance of ‘Ferrari’ hitmaker James Hype and a unique solo set by Like Mike
Afrojack, Armin van Buuren, R3HAB, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano and W&W are some of the Tomorrowland veterans to guide people through the digital music experience. Techno & house music legends Amelie Lens, Ape Rave Club, Dom Dolla, Kölsch and Tale Of Us will also be joining, while British superstar James Hype will be making his first digital appearance with his global chart-topping hit ‘Ferrari’. The iconic Belgian DJ & producer Like Mike will be performing a unique solo set, while Belgian female hardstyle powerhouse Mandy and the 20-year-old One World Radio resident Amber Broos will also deliver the most energetic sounds to fans across the globe.
Mandy: “Doing a recording for such a special digital production is still something else. Like everything Tomorrowland does, they aim for the best result possible. The amount of detail in this digital world is insane and hopefully it gives people from all ages, all over the world, an impression on how the real Tomorrowland events are. It’s insane to see all the crew and equipment behind the scenes which are needed to create this special digital edition of Tomorrowland. During the recording, I played a test version of my new single ‘UNDRGRND’ which will be released the first week of February. I’m curious if the people notice the changes that have been made in the final version.”
Amber Broos: “It is the first time that I participated in such a large-scale professional production as ‘Adscendo’. I already got a sneak peek of the visual effects projected on the backdrop and they really look breathtaking. The decor and visuals are bringing an extra dimension to my set. It’s a fun way for the music scene to meet each other in between of live interactions. I made a mix of new and classic dance tracks, a combination of my favorite music, so that the audience can get a taste of what I usually bring on stage.”
DJ performances recorded during Amsterdam Dance Event
This unique digital spectacle will already be Tomorrowland’s fourth digital music festival experience, following two successful editions of Tomorrowland – Around the World and the digital New Year’s Eve celebration Tomorrowland 31.12.2020. All DJ performances for ‘Adscendo – A Digital Introduction’ were recorded in a brand-new studio in Haarlem during Amsterdam Dance Event. Tomorrowland’s large production & creative team has worked very closely with several specialized suppliers and experts to create 6 unique digital environments in Unreal Engine 5, using both 6 real cameras as well as 154 unique virtual cameras.
