TomorrowWorld 2015: Lineup & Buses
July 17th, 2015Matt Reynolds
The key to happiness exists, and it can only be found at TomorrowWorld. The third edition of the TomorrowWorld festival, held in the Chatahoochee Hills of Georgia, dropped their official full lineup. Artists who have had stellar 2015’s, like Thomas Jack, Rudimental, and The Magician, were included, as well as a plethora of household names, including Benny Benassi, Kaskade, Laidback Luke, Porter Robinson, and Bingo Players. Bass heads worldwide rejoiced after seeing Bassnectar, Bro Safari, and Seven Lions added to the lineup, while fans of tech and deep house squealed when seeing Guy Gerber and Maya Jane Coles included.
Chattahoochee – A TomorrowWorld Story
With TomorrowWorld on the horizon and our coach bus from the Northeast quickly filling up, we figured it’s the perfect time to release a little after-movie from our time at TW last year!See you in the Chattahoochee Hills…Video by Winterhalter.—-BUS INFO ► http://bit.ly/twbus2015LINEUP ► http://bit.ly/tmwrld2015

Many of the less commercial genres, however, were underrepresented with the headliner announcements. With stage curators Hospital Records, Q Dance, and All Gone Pete Tong, it was clear the full announcement would be loaded with drum and bass, hardstyle, and tech house. The final lineup did not disappoint; artists like Danny Byrd, Fred V & Grafix, Frontliner, Noisecontrollers, Coone, Destructo, and Shiba San were announced. TW even released a few new headliners to the card, including DJ Snake, Cashmere Cat, and Joseph Capriati – all new additions from last year’s lineup.
Phase 1 announced some of the biggest names in modern electronic music. With Armin van Buuren, David Guetta, Hardwell, Martin Garrix, Steve Angello, Showtek, Tiesto, and the annual Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike announcement, there seemed to be a shift towards mainstage acts. Yes, there was techno god Adam Beyer and tech house honcho Jamie Jones, as well as bass legends Excision and Flux Pavilion – but it felt very commercial. With the phase two and three announcements, TomorrowWorld diversified its roster by adding much needed variety.
Regardless of the lineup, TomorrowWorld is one of the top festivals in the US for a reason: its production quality is top notch. Walking through the woods between stages, lights sparkle and fountains dazzle. Every stage is a visual masterpiece culminating in the behemoth that is the main stage. The lights, pyrotechnics, and soundsystem at the TomorrowWorld main stage is rivaled by few; the only way to understand is to witness it yourself.
This year, TomorrowWorld has offered visitors a variety different weekend camping options. The first (and cheapest) is the Full Madness camping pass in Dreamville, at $417 before fees. You can upgrade this to a Full Madness Comfort (or VIP) pass for $907 before fees. There are also easy tent options. These packages include a special edition TomorrowWorld tent, set up for your convenience and ready for action upon arrival. These packages come in 2 person AND 4 person options, as well as an option for a “spectacular” easy tent with a wooden floor, electricity, and a terrace with chairs. These prices range from ranging from $1300 – $4936, depending on the number of people and the option. TW also has a special Dreamlodge option as well as a swanky Cabana option for those with a little excess – okay, a lot of excess – cash around. (For those not privvy to the camping life, there are a bunch of hotels in the area. TW has conveniently located the closest ones, including the price per night, on their site here.)
This year, TW has hooked campers up with bus rides. Those without cars, or any way to get to TomorrowWorld, can get there from a variety of different cities, including New York, Boston, Philadelphia, and Albany. Definitely check this out if you’re looking to put your feet up on your journey to Georgia.
The key to happiness is within your reach. Although this is only TomorrowWorld’s third year in existence, it has already become one of America’s destination festivals. The lineup covers all genres of music (albeit some more adequately than others), and hosts attendees from all regions of the world. While the price tag is hefty, it’s clear that most of the TomorrowWorld ticket cost goes directly into improving the attendees’ experience via the stage designs, artist bookings, and art installations. TomorrowWorld is an absolute must-visit at least once.
