Tomorrowland will give a platform to young DJ talents to showcase their skills

7 youngsters between 9 and 17 years old will get to perform at the Belgian festival in collaboration with the Tomorrowland Academy

Tuesday, 18 June 2024 - Just a month to go before Tomorrowland returns to the beautiful scenery of De Schorre in Boom, Belgium for its special 20-year anniversary edition! The iconic festival will be home to 16 different stages for the People of Tomorrow to discover, giving a platform to young DJ talents to showcase their skills in collaboration with the Tomorrowland Academy.

Spread over the two festival weekends, 7 young talents, from 9 to 17 years old, will get the opportunity to perform across different stages, including:

  • DJ Archie, 9 years old (United Kingdom), plays house, garage and drum ‘n’ bass – Atmosphere on July 20.
  • DJ Daan, 14 years old (Belgium), plays progressive and commercial – Rise on July 19.
  • Dolores, 16 years old (Belgium), plays EDM and all-round – The Library on July 19.
  • FLOw, 16 years old (Belgium), plays tech house and techno – House of Fortune on July 28.
  • Lucca van Damme, 15 years old (Belgium), plays big room, techno and EDM – House of Fortune on July 21 and Rise on July 26.
  • Rumix, 15 years old (Belgium), plays techno – The Rose Garden on July 20.
  • W4STD, 17 years old (Belgium), plays Eurodance, techno and house – House of Fortune on July 27.

In collaboration with the Tomorrowland Academy, Tomorrowland’s DJ & producer school for kids, youngsters, and adults with unique locations in Antwerp and Hasselt, which also organizes kids and adults bootcamps throughout the year as well as around the festival, wants to inspire and empower talents from all corners of the globe to produce, release, create and perform music. Earlier this year, Tomorrowland also launched the Online Tomorrowland DJ & Producing Academy, a new educational DJ & producer platform that gives beginning and advanced DJs & producers the chance to take their career to the next level.

While in 2023 the Rise stage, nestled in green nature full of beautiful plants and summery vibes, was the only place where young teenagers with DJ talents could take their first steps in the real world, Tomorrowland is now giving them the chance to play across several different stages, including Atmosphere, Rise, House of Fortune and The Rose Garden. During last year’s festival edition, DJ Daan already got the chance to open the Rise stage – making for a very emotional moment when the young DJ got surprised by his idol Dimitri Vegas who joined him on stage during his set.

Leading up to Tomorrowland 2024, The Tomorrowland Academy is organizing a Start to DJ-Kids Camp from July 8 to 12, offering kids and teenagers (age 8 to 16) mentoring by professional DJs in week-long workshops at Den Oven, located 200 meters from De Schorre. After their bootcamp, the kids and teenagers will get the unique chance to perform at Tomorrowland’s Neighborhood Party on July 24.
