Top 3 Sets from TomorrowWorld Day 1

At first when I heard that the legendary Tomorrowland music festival was coming to Atlanta I was skeptical. It's just another typical EDM marketing ploy to pop up a new music festival in a mid-size city and slap a big name like "Tomorrowland" over it to bring crowds. But Tomorrowworld proved me wrong. With a world class lineup, a mainstage that looks directly imported from Belgium, and DJs bringing their A+ game, I'm strongly tempted to empty my bank account and fly out for the last two days. For the time being, I'll have to settle for dancing uncontrollably around my apartment to the recorded sets. Here are my top three so far:

3. Tiesto
Tiesto's set stayed true to his sound, as he combined anthems that make you scream your lungs out and drops that make your head bounce. He included a pleasant amount of his relatively "old" hits such as Feel It in My Bones, Escape Me, and Flight 643, all in the form of surprising mash ups or fresh new remixes. He's been in the game for so long for a reason, his mix alternates between his huge melodies and filthy beats to near perfection.

2. Sebastian Ingrosso
Seems like you can take the Swede out of the Mafia, but you can't take the Mafia out of the Swede. Right from the intro this set will draw you in with its progressive, instrumental groove that Swedish House Mafia was so well known for. The superb mixing between SHM hits and banging progressive tunes will make you scour the internet for the tracklist as you dance with abandon and wonder, "What am I listening to right now!?"

1. Dmitri Vegas & Like Mike
These two easily take the cake for the best set of Day 1. Their high energy drops, addictive anthems, and pump up antics make for a set you would kill to see live. This set will pound you with epic drop after epic drop, give you a break to sing your favorite song, and then hit you again with blaring horns a la "Wakanda" or spasming woodblocks reminiscent of "Animals" by Martin Garrix. These guys put on an amazing show, and are the number one reason why I am seething with jealousy towards anyone in Atlanta this weekend. This is a must listen for any EDM lover.
