The Symphony of Unity
The DJ booth of the Atmosphere stage was once again handed over to 50 live musicians to perform the Symphony of Unity, composed specially for Tomorrowland – bringing a magical performance in which classical and electronic music was united and transformed into an unprecedented show. The orchestra’s performance was mesmerizing for the audience, with a unique live mix between the all-time and most iconic electronic Tomorrowland anthems and magical classical music such as the Tomorrowland Hymn.
