Tomorrowland is set to return for a second time this July 2023 after the Covid-19 pandemic canceled its 2020 and 2021 editions. And just like last year, this event is set to be one of the biggest yet! This year's theme, “Adscendo,” plays on the fantastical idea of the afterlife; possibly how people will still be partying even when the world ends. This novel-like approach is sure to blend well with its extraordinary lineup, which includes Amelie Lens, Armin van Buuren, Martin Garrix, Steve Aoki, and more. This army of EDM masters will hit 14 incredible stages at this year's Tomorrowland.
An Awesome Lineup
The most notable part about Tomorrowland 2023 is that its lineup is jam-packed with the biggest EDM stars on the planet. No less than Armin van Buuren, Hardwell, Martin Garrix, Above & Beyond, Amelie Lens, SVDDEN DEATH, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, and Nina Kraviz are all slated to perform this year. And those are just the most famous ones. Tomorrowland 2023 boasts a total of about 600 acts this year, their biggest lineup yet. And though it's a healthy mix of big names and up-and-coming artists, there's no doubt that excellent EDM will take center stage!

The “Adscendo” Theme
For Tomorrowland 2023, the festival introduced its “Adscendo” theme, centering on a new frontier. Much like their previous themes on the past, Adscendo relies on whims and fantasy. Tomorrowland has even released a digital introduction to what this year's festival will be about. Complete with sets from Kölsch, Mandy, and Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, this looks to be a journey you won't soon forget. And on top of all of that, the festival also plans to release a fantasy novel that will explain what “Adscendo” is all about. Talk about dedication to the theme!

A Fantastical Stage
It's safe to assume that Tomorrowland 2023's main stage is bound to be as fantastical as ever. The event became iconic for its grand stages, after all, the likes of which not even the more famous Coachella and Glastonbury have yet to equal. And with the theme and concept art released so far, there's no doubt that Tomorrowland will bring on its signature Disney castle-like fantasy in Boom, Belgium this year. With what has been released so far, the inspiration looks to be that of a fantasy airship straight out of Tolkien lore. Are you ready for all the whimsy?

Shaquille O'Neal Getting His Own Stage
Who had former NBA superstar Shaquille O'Neal playing at Tomorrowland in their 2023 card? While Tomorrowland 2023 already has a stellar lineup of EDM legends, perhaps the biggest celebrity of them all is, ironically, fairly new to the scene. Shaquille O'Neal only started DJ-ing back in 2021 but he was already spotted at Tomorrowland (and other EDM festivals) even prior to that. Clips of the 7'1' sports icon went viral, eventually leading him to start his own EDM career as DJ DIESEL. Tomorrowland 2023 is set to be one of his biggest gigs yet!
Tomorrowland 2023 will be epic! The annual music festival returns for a second time after a two-year hiatus because of Covid-19 and it will offer an awesome lineup, amazing stages, and even a few celebrities!
