UNITE with Tomorrowland | LIVE on Stage in Abu Dhabi:

LUCAS & STEVE – Beyond their breathtaking melodies and explosive performances, you’ll find dance music’s closest friendship. Dutch powerhouse duo Lucas & Steve have seen a momentous rise to stardom in recent years, climbing charts and making their DJ Mag Top 100 debut at #64 in 2017. Renowned for their uplifting productions, the MTV Award (2017) nominees have scored consecutive summer hits with ‘Summer On You’ and most recently ‘Up Till Dawn’, now attracting over 3 million monthly listeners on Spotify. Lucas & Steve’s infinite energy is best experienced in a crowd, which they’ve proven time after time with acclaimed sets at Tomorrowland's mainstage, Creamfields, Sziget Festival and continuous tours across Europe, Asia and South America.

UMMET OZCAN – In an age where very few artists break the mold and truly shine through as unique and innovative, Dutch/Turkish star Ummet Ozcan is one of the exceptions to the rule because of his enduring presence at worldwide mainstages including EDC, Tomorrowland, Creamfields and Global Gathering. In 2014 and 2015 ‘Raise Your Hands’, ‘Smash’ and ‘Superwave’ all became instant hits, racking up millions of YouTube views and making it to #1 on Beatport. More recent titles like the massive tune ‘The Hum’ (with former DJ Mag #1 duo Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike) ‘Lose Control’ and ‘Stars’ and his 2016 collab with Tiësto called ‘What you’re waiting for’ are sure shots. Other 2016 titles like ‘Melody’ with Steve Aoki, ‘SpaceCats’, ‘Megatron’ and ‘Don’t Stop’ are proven dance floor essentials.

DJ Licious – Belgium-based, DJ Licious knows good vibes come from nothing but house music. The producer is currently going from strength to strength with every new release; from releasing ‘I Hear You Calling’ on the legendary Positiva record label, to dropping heat on Don Diablo’s HEXAGON imprint with ‘I Can’t Stop’, to putting his magic remix touch on Avicii’s & Rita Ora’s worldwide smash ‘Lonely Together’. DJ Licious is set to release his new single ‘Twisted Games’, when he will also join Don Diablo on his ‘A Better Future Tour’ throughout Europe.
