Axtone Stage at Tomorrowland


Posted on July 26, 2016 by

It’s been a great year for Axtone so far with loads of releases, a residency in Croatia and a party at Ushuaia coming up on Wednesday. To top all of that off Axtone made their Tomorrowland debut this year hosting their own indoor arena at the festival.
I arrived during MEG / NERAK’s set and they set the tone for the rest of the day, relentlessly deploying high energy bangers with plenty of their usual fist pump action. NEW_ID was next up who treated the crowd to some summery grooves before Tom Staar took over proceedings. It didn’t take him long to thrash out recent Axtone release ‘The Funkatron’ which got a great reaction. As Kryder began his set the arena was rammed as bossman Axwell was up next.
Axwell delivered a typically epic set, chatting to the crowd in-between tracks and banging out his back catalogue of hits. He even kept his cool when one of his tracks skipped as a result of a huge inflatable ball landing on his CDJ. A big highlight was when he brought out fellow Axtone family member Shapov to play their upcoming collab ‘Belong’ to a rapturous applause. Shapov took the reins next for his set which included a stage invasion of all the DJs on the Axtone bill. Dirty South and Sick Individuals were on duty to keep the party going with Hard Rock Sofa closing the arena.
The day couldn’t have gone better and judging on how well it went, I’m pretty sure Axtone will be back at Tomorrowland for more in 2017!

"Rising were invaluable during the release of my last studio album DRIVE. For a period of about six months around the release, hardly a day went by without me speaking to Seb or Avery about every single aspect of the release, with their input going far beyond what I expected, covering many more areas than just digital management, and never getting annoyed at my multiple phone calls and emails about every aspect of the project. On release day, we nailed the elusive #1 spot on the US iTunes Dance chart and it’s no exaggeration to say without Rising, I don’t think that would have happened. Great company, great people."
