With Adamo brings Boomtown the incarnate class to the Gentse Feesten – rather everyone knows that he on Friday evening in the opera house should play. The Italo-Belgian is still the best selling Belgian artist of all time, and continues to go along with his time: on his recent, 25th studio album, Si vous saviez , he warns against the excesses of the big data economy.

Portugal. The Man
A poor sense of punctuation and musical talent seems to be these days highly correlated to be – just ask Anderson .Paak and Let’s Eat Grandma. Also Portugal. The Man combines both. The band is not coming out of Portugal (from Alaska) and is not a singer-songwriter, but a quartet. Further, the four of infectious indie-rock, with the track ‘Feel it still as the recent outlier. Write to them, therefore, not as a one hit wonder, because they are bending for more than a decade on the road.

If, at the end of Tomorrowland, and a hearty shot of sugar need, you can the Red Bull feel free to ignore: just go to Slushii. The 21-year-old Californian producer is thick friends with co-diabetesveroorzaker Marshmello, but to colour his beats with a solid dose of dubstep. Oh, and bring your Yu-Gi-Oh cards, because the man has a nice collection – a dj must be something with his money – and will certainly trade it.
