Tomorrowland Hosts Sets From Young DJs Between Ages 9 And 17


Tomorrowland will invite a roster of young DJs to showcase their skills at Tomorrowland Belgium next month in collaboration with the Tomorrowland Academy.

Seven DJs ranging from 9 to 17 years old will have the opportunity to perform on several of Tomorrowland’s 16 total stages, including Atmosphere, Rise, House of Fortune and the Rose Garden. Performances will be split across both weekends of the festival, July 19-21 and July 26-28.

The youngest talents on the bill include 9-year-old drum & bass selector DJ Archie, who became the youngest-ever performer at Glastonbury last year, and 14-year-old progressive house performer DJ Daan, who will return to play Tomorrowland for a second consecutive year after opening the festival’s Rise stage alongside Dimitri Vegas in 2023.

Check out the full list of invitees below.

Launched in 2022, the Tomorrowland Academy, the festival’s DJ and music production school for kids, teens and adults alike, comprises two locations in Antwerp and Hasselt, Belgium. These flagship schools organize educational bootcamps throughout the year and on-site at the festival in an effort to inspire young and rising talents to produce, release, and perform music.

Earlier this year, Tomorrowland also launched the Online Tomorrowland DJ & Producing Academy, offering subscription-based online courses, masterclasses, Q&A’s live feedback, DJ competitions, and more.

In the build-up to Tomorrowland Belgium 2024, the Tomorrowland Academy will host a “Start to DJ Kids Camp” from July 8-12, giving kids and teenagers aged 8 to 16 professional mentorship in week-long workshops at Boom, Belgium’s Den Oven events space, located just 200 meters from the festival site at De Shorre Park.

After the bootcamp, the participating kids and teenagers will have the unique chance to perform at Tomorrowland’s Neighborhood Part on July 24.

Tomorrowland Belgium will return to Boom’s De Schorre Park this July 19-21 and July 26-28, with Armin van BuurenSwedish House MafiaAmelie LensTale Of UsAlokDom DollaJohn SummitDavid GuettaTiëstoAfrojackVintage Culture and hundreds more.
