Dancing Astronaut’s Soundtrack to Tomorrowland 2015
Dancing Astronaut's Soundtrack to Tomorrowland 2015
Another Tomorrowland has come and gone. The most international and popular festival on the planet, Tomorrowland celebrated its 10th birthday with an overwhelming lineup of talent from all over the planet. Known for its stage productions, this year’s Main Stage did not disappoint and, like any great festival, the music oftentimes defines the journey. From Axwell /\ Ingrosso’s “Dark River” to Alan Fitzpatrick’s “Love Siren” these 10 tracks marked our top moments spent on the ground in Boom, Belgium.
NGHTMRE - Street
That track that had everyone scratching their heads after Skrillex dropped it, NGHTMRE’s “Street” ignited the Barong Family tent when Dillon Francis pulled it out of his bag of tricks between “When We Were Young” and “To Ü.”
Hardwell & Wiwek - Chameleon
Hardwell brought jungle terror to Tomorrowland with “Chameleon,” his rambunctious collaboration with fellow Dutchman Wiwek. The rest of his performance was equally relentless but it was “Chameleon” that redlined the stage.
Hot Since 82 - Play The Room
Hot Since 82’s studio work never ceases to find its way into the hands of the world’s biggest DJs. At Tomorrowland, John Digweed was the culprit, dropping this smooth tech house number from the Carl Cox and Friends stage.
Tiësto and The Chainsmokers - Only You
Tiësto and The Chainsmokers bring Ashanti’s monster hit back to life for a Main Stage EDM audience on “Only You.” The chord progression alone is enough to shake a crowd to its core.

Calvin Harris - Thinking About You (Big Z Remix)
Oliver Heldens brought his unique brand of deep house to the Main Stage and Big Z’s remix of Calvin Harris’s “Thinking About You” cemented his performance as the funkiest of the weekend.
Alan Fitzpatrick - Love Siren
The latest Drumcode bomb is Alan Fitzpatrick’s “Love Siren.” The track has been making the rounds this season, but no where did it have a bigger impact than during Carl Cox’s set at his eponymous stage.
Loco & Jam - Trigger
The opening moments of Solomun’s set were defined by Loco & Jams bustling tech house jam “Trigger.” It set the tone for what would be one of the best dance parties of the weekend.
Jesse Rose - Touch N' Tease
Martin Solveig is one of the few guys on the main stage who adds an element of surprise to his performances. After a slew of huge hits, the Frenchman went under the radar and dropped Jesse Rose’s sex-laced grinder “Touch N’ Tease.”
Martin Garrix vs Matisse & Sadko - Break Through the Silence (Original Mix)
Martin Garrix and Matisse & Sadko have quickly become a force to be reckoned with where festival-sized production work is concerned. Their collaboration “Break Through the Silence” did just that when Martin mashed it up with Alesso before closing out his set.
Axwell / Ingrosso - Dark River
Axwell and Ingrosso’s “Dark River” finds a perfect spot between radio-friendly top lines and some seriously menacing production work that shook the main stage to its core.
Faithless - Insomnia (Avicii Remix)
It doesn’t get much bigger than an Avicii remix of “Insomnia,” Faithless’s iconic rave anthem from 1995. The brand new remix — the official version for the song’s 20th anniversary — came towards the tail end of Avicii’s main stage performance.
