It is a new year, but festival fans have the same question on their mind. Will Tomorrowland take place in 2021?
The short answer is we don’t know. Still, Belgian officials say a decision is coming, and it’s coming soon.
Flemish culture minister Jan Jambon said Thursday that he and festival organizers agreed to make the call on all 2021 festivals by mid-March.
“I hope with all my heart that things will be possible again for the festivals that were not possible last year,” Jambon told the Flemish Parliament, “but it is too early for the moment to say more.”
The Brussels Times reports Jambon is waiting to see the progress of coronavirus vaccinations before deciding.
Nevertheless, Tomorrowland continues getting ready as usual.
“The preparations for Tomorrowland 2021 are currently ongoing,” reads a statement on the festival’s website. “We hope we will be able to celebrate love, unity, and friendship with all of you next summer.”

At the start of the new year, festival-goers were hoping for the long-awaited return of music festivals to come real soon. However, it seems that music festivals such as Coachella may not happen as soon as expected.
Palm Springs Mayor Christy Holstege recently discussed during an interview that music festivals located in the area are likely to be rescheduled to the fall. She states:
“We’re not planning on events in spring this year. We’re hoping that those events will be rescheduled to the fall of this year.”
The news comes soon after Dr. Anthony Fauci made a prediction that concerts could return in Fall 2021. Therefore, festivals like Coachella would have a better chance at occurring later in the year than they would in the next few months.
As of now, there have been no updates as to whether the big-time California festival will take place in April. However, recent rumors speculate that another postponement will soon be on the way. For now, organizers have remained quiet as to what will happen in the near future.

Drive-in concerts are one of the closest things we can get to a full concert experience amidst the coronavirus pandemic. In other words, they’re almost a godsend to some. But according to some local residents around Hutto’s Brushy Creek Amphitheater, they’re highly disruptive. On January 8, deadmau5 appeared to have bothered the locals with his concert’s heavy bass, among other sounds.View this post on Instagram
As reported by local station KVUE, residents around the concert area took to social media to voice their complaints. In a Reddit thread, a user complained that he/she could hear the bass from 10 miles away.What the fuck Hutto? Can hear Deadmau5 10 miles away from r/Austin
Meanwhile, the local police station received many noise complaints that night, as the volume was allegedly loud enough to “[rattle] windows in nearby homes”. As if the bass wasn’t bad enough, some local residents also complained about deadmau5′ use of profanity. One who lived within a mile of the Brushy Creek Amphitheater recalled, “He was dropping F-bombs all over the place and we can hear this in the living room of our brick house with the doors and windows closed.”deadmau5′ Responds
Since then, deadmau5 had responded to the situation with an apology decorated with a touch of humour. Through an Instagram post, he writes “Man, I’m sorry Hutto! I can sympathize… loud stuff near my house would bug TF out of me too… hopefully the engineers figure out a better solution for you. Let’s chalk this one up as a … stress test?”View this post on Instagram
And finally, in responding to claims about the F-bombs, he adds “”It was the stupid fucking opener dj guy who got on the mic after he was done going “FUCK 2020!” Like a goon before I even got up there… damn.”

Tiësto just revealed something special, as he’s kicking off 2021 as his alias VER:WEST. He’s debuting an episode of AFTR:HRS Sessions, a new mix series on his aftrhrrecords label. This announcement came via his Instagram here, and we can expect some of the freshest melodic techno music. Mark sure to tune in this Friday on YouTube and Soundcloud.
The Dutch icon introduced this moniker to the world at Tomorrowland’s digital festival. The label is chock full of genre titans like Spada, Leftwing: Kody, Jose Amnesia, and more. MOGUAI has a deep edit, while yuma adds a funky, deep house groove. For the freshest beats, follow his channels above for more.
‘5 Seconds Before Sunrise‘ has been played by Armin van Buuren’s ASOT Top 1000 Countdown. Not to mention, it featured on Benny Benassi’s Welcome to my House NYE 090. Its infectious, deep, luxurious sound is something we can anticipate in his upcoming mix. For me, there is no better sound than the chill, melodic, and deep sides to techno and trance.
Get a feel for what the label is like with Tube & Berger – All I Want (feat Goatchy). This catchy techno track resembles Bob Moses by voice, but with an added electronic flair. We foresee this skillfully curated mix series as another one to add to your list of things to listen to. The best way to learn new music is through this master.
We’ve followed Tiësto over the years and he’s given us masterful big room bangers and killed live performances. He takes us back to the classics with his trance but also hypes up the future with this newest alias. Is there any wonder why he’s been called a ‘world number one DJ’?As one of the most established producers in time, join VER:WEST in making more history this week!

Things are starting to look up in 2021 for Marshmello fans. After teasing the completion of his next album in 2020, it looks like it has officially wrapped up. The Forbes 30 under 30 artist tweeted just days ago that the highly anticipated album has crossed the finished line.
hey my album is done— marshmello (@marshmellomusic) January 7, 2021
Based on his past three albums (Joyride, Joyride II, and Joyride III), we can expect that this next album will be Joyride IV. Also, we can assume that the artist will be including some big names on the album as well! In the past, Marshmello has worked with Halsey, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, and Juice WRLD.View this post on Instagram
Lastly, it would be quite a shock if the album is anything less than amazing. And many fans will hopefully agree. The artist has accomplished and had so much recognition for his work. Marshmello is a part of the top 50 most streamed artists on Spotify. He has successfully surpassed the one billion stream mark. It’s only up from here!

The artist behind some of the most emblematic dubstep tracks like ‘I Can’t Stop’ and ‘Bass Cannon’, Flux Pavilion, is taking a break from the genre. After a long time as a massively influential character in the scene, he’s decided that it’s time to explore other music genres.
Dubstep loses a huge artist after so many of his amazing tracks have made an impact on the space. Flux Pavilion recently released ‘You & I’ with Kata Kozman and ‘Sink Your Teeth In’ feat. Drowsy before sharing this shocking decision with the fans.
The British producer and DJ shared his feelings on Twitter. As you can find in the tweets below, the artist stated that he is “no longer a dubstep person”. When addressing his next steps, he mentioned that he has a new album coming out in 10 days. The music industry is quite curious what his next genre will be.
The artist also shared his reason for leaving Dubstep. The artist from the UK said that he simply doesn’t find joy in writing dubstep at this juncture. “Ah I just don’t really enjoy writing it anymore,” he wrote. “I’ve spent 10 years exploring it and now it feels right to move on.”
I am no longer a dubstep person— fluxpavilion.wav (@Fluxpavilion) January 11, 2021

Flux Pavilion will be remembered as one of the genre’s trailblazers. And who knows – it could be only temporary. We hope that the prestigious bass architect finds the motivation to explore different genres and provide new spectacular tracks.
Flux Pavilion’s new era will start with the release of his highly anticipated sophomore album, .wav. Now that Flux Pavilion is stopping his dubstep sounds, who will fill this gap?

A few days ago, Joseph Capriati’s agency had issued a short statement reassuring fans that the DJ’s stab wounds were “not life-threatening“. Now, fans can really let out a sigh of relief with an update from Capriati himself.View this post on Instagram
Posted across his socials, Capriati takes the time to thank “all of you, my relatives, friends, acquaintances, and the many DJs and promoters” for all the affection received over the past few days.
In terms of his health, Capriati shared that he had only just re-gathered the strength to speak this morning. But thankfully, “doctors say that the worst is over now”. This comes after a delicate pneumothroax surgery and blood transfusion at the Sant’Anna e San Sebastiano Hospital in Caserta, Italy.
He continues his heartfelt post with a small request – for “some respect for my father and family”. It’s certainly easy to judge as an outsider, but as Capriati himself has very well said, “I and none of you have the power and duty to judge what happened”.
Perdono mio padre per il folle gesto e prego tanto per lui. Ora penso a guarire. A presto. (“I forgive my dad for the crazy act and pray for him so much. Now I think about getting better. See you soon.”)Joseph Capriati
