Tomorrowland has been voted the world’s premier music festival in DJ Mag’s Top 100 Festivals poll in a resounding affirmation of its global prominence.
Over 100,000 verified votes were counted between April 26 and June 21 in this year’s poll.
Tomorrowland is still the world’s favourite festival
Having previously clinched the title in 2019 when the poll was determined by top DJs and reclaiming its victory last year following the shift to a public vote, Tomorrowland has now secured its reign as the world’s favourite festival once again.
The Belgian extravaganza has captivated music enthusiasts and artists alike with its avant-garde stage production, star-studded line-ups, and global allure.
With the 2023 edition of Tomorrowland, themed “Adscendo,” came over 400,000 international attendees who converged across 16 stages to celebrate music. The sounds of over 750 electronic music artists vibrated the ground and resonated through the air while the festival lived up to its reputation for delivering an unparalleled musical experience.
This year, Tomorrowland introduced new ways to engage its fanbase, including the revival of its One World Radio station with its expanded live broadcast schedule throughout the two weekends. Meanwhile, the new RISE stage brought together emerging artists with nature, creating a unique fusion of music and environment.
Manu and Michiel Beers, the founders of Tomorrowland, expressed their delight at the festival’s continuous recognition. In a joint statement, they remarked, “We are delighted to once again receive this recognition from the public, festival goers, and DJ Mag readers. What once started as a dream, took wings thanks to the tireless efforts of a passionate young team and the enthusiasm and unconditional support of the Tomorrowland community, the People of Tomorrow.”
As anticipation builds for the festival’s 20th-anniversary celebrations next year, attendees and fans are already buzzing with excitement about the festival’s imminent return to Brazil in the coming weeks.
The DJ Mag Top 100 Festivals poll for 2023 reinforces Tomorrowland’s commanding presence on the global festival scene, setting the stage for its continued influence on electronic music culture.
