TomorrowWorld is the American expansion of the most buzzed festival of the year, TomorrowLand, and we couldn’t be any more excited for it to kick off in less than a week. On top of the Disney World like production and atmosphere, the amazing location in Chattahoochee Hills, GA (right outside of Atlanta) combined with this festival lineup makes TomorrrowWorld one for the books. It’s great how the festival manages to accommodate for the majority of the house world throughout the weekend. Festivalgoers are able to see everything from the progressive main stage end of the spectrum to tech and deep house grooves, as well as some of the finest ambassadors of the bass and trap worlds along with both hardstyle and trance getting some love.
Well with the festival packing in over 150 acts throughout the weekend, we thought throwing together a "Top 10" list of acts you can't miss just wouldn't do it justice. So we've spent a seemingly endless amount of time assembling the essential guide of Top 21 acts you cannot miss while attending TomorrowWorld.
One of the most equally exciting and unique acts in electronic music, Dillon Francis, is set to have one of the biggest sets of the entire weekend. Recently teasing us with some massive new anthems from his upcoming debut studio album set to release next month, we can hopefully expect to hear more new cuts from the much anticipated record. It also helps that he has a pretty consistent track record of completely destroying crowds at every festival he makes an appearance at. Missing this set will be one of the only things you can regret during this eventful weekend.
"Mad Decent Stage" from 9:00pm – 10:30pm on Saturday
The man responsible for making "twerk" apart of our modern society on top of endless hit records, headlining too many festivals to count, Diplo is easily one of the hottest acts at TomorrowWorld. As he goes up against all of the other top global house acts he is guaranteed to bring out all the guns and will be a set you really shouldn't go without.
“Mad Decent Stage” from 10:30pm – 12:00am on Saturday
The global icon for bass music, grammy award winning Skrillex, is an act you should always make sure to observe. His debut artist album, Recess, saw massive success this year as the DJ showcased various new styles and expanded his sound to a far wider scale. Having a strong techno and electro influence, thanks in part to his Dog Blood collaborator Boys Noize, has only brought an even more exciting edge to his always changing style. Hopefully he has brought out his visually stunning spaceship, but either way you won’t want to miss out on this set.
"TomorrowWorld Mainstage" from 11:30pm – 1:00am on Saturday
French trendsetter Tchami has been turning heads with his unique, high energy style of dance music he is calling “Future House”. If turning out multiple successful singles and remixes wasn’t enough, the man is a beast behind the decks. He seems to always show up dressed as a priest which makes sense considering his sets are quite religious. Catching his set is sure to be a quite the highlight for all that do.
"Mythical Frames Stage" from 5:30pm – 7:00pm on Friday
Well if being chosen to replace headliner Avicii on mainstage wasn’t a big enough statement, we must further emphasize that this is without a doubt one of the top acts you need to see at TW this year. The exploding Norwegian producer DJ will be bringing his Tropical House sound for a change of pace from the typical main stage acts. This is going to be a turning point for not only Kygo’s career, but hopefully a jumpstart on including more diverse styles on the main stages at festivals of this magnitude!

The renegade of funk and soul otherwise known as GRiZ is one of those acts that truly exemplifies the phrase “you need to see it live” as the producer is much more than a DJ, but instead a true live musician.

On top of being a TSIS longtime favorite, he is a guaranteed highlight for all the festival attendees who manage to catch his set!

The UK to LA transplanted DJ Mat Zo has no fear of any style as he has been successfully turning out productions ranging from Trance and Electro all the way to Drum & Bass and everything in between.

The energy this duo possesses live outshines the majority of the DJs on this lineup by a long shot, so make sure to check it out!
"Dim Mak Stage" from 7:15pm – 8:00pm on Sunday
For LA based duo Slander “exploding” is quite the understatement as they have climbed endless ranks over the past 6 months. This is thanks to a solid stream of what they are calling “Heaven Trap” remixes that have been causing the start of a movement. They got offered a last minute slot to fill in for Nicky Romero at Nocturnal Wonderland on mainstage, and they absolutely crushed it as they proved how capable they are of shutting down festival stages.
