The following EDM festivals are our pick of Europe’s best in month of July, offering great music in locations that warrant further exploration, whether that’s in a city, the countryside or by the sea.

Tomorrowland

Tomorrowland

Tomorrowland is one of the biggest electronic music festivals held in the world, taking place in Belgium. The festival takes place in the town of Boom, 16 kilometers south of Antwerp, 32 kilometers north of Brussels, and has been organized since 2005.

Following up on last year’s “Kingdom of Melodia,” Tomorrowland announced that the theme of this year’s festival is the equally-baffling-but-fitting “The Elixir of Life.”

The Elixir of Life” theme is consistent with the festival’s mystical branding and medieval imagery, and seems an adequate description of the role dance music plays in many festivalgoers lives.
