The current world #1 and the legendary Tiesto blew away spectators with their much awaited b2b performance. Here’s their monstrous set: 

The two heavyweights of dance music go way back, and Hardwell was first introduced into the big stage by Tiesto himself. Here’s a #Throwback moment from Energy Festival, 2011.

5. Drunk Deorro almost cancels mainstage set.

After overreacting on Twitter on not receiving ‘complementary’ food coupons for his manager, the American threatened (or almost did) to cancel his main stage performance.

But he eventually changed his mind and decided to apologize (after being schooled on twitter by deadmau5, btw)and carry on with his set via a Facebook post.

The masterful Laidback Luke donned a bear outfit and went around the Tomorrowland grounds, spreading the love & hugging festival goers, naturally unaware of his true identity. He eventually revealed himself during the live broadcast as the presenter was interviewing Dutchmen Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano.   

Weekend 2 has a lot more in store for us. Stay tuned to the Sherp for more.
