On July 7, The Sound of Tomorrow 2020, in partnership with Pepsi Max hosted a live stream event for its annual competition for DJs and producers around the world. Hosted by electronic dance music artists Nervo the competition also had host judges Fedde Le Grand and Dimitri Vegas from Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike.
This year’s winner winner of The Sound of Tomorrow will win his/her own spot at Tomorrowland 2021 performing a back2back set with renowned music artist Fedde Le Grand and will release a remix on Le Grand’s label, Darklight Recordings. The artist will also receive a one month residency at One World Radio.
Following and during the event viewers were able to cast votes on Facebook, Youtube, and/or Switch. The Sound of Tomorrow will not only be counting on public votes but will also use 40% of the judges (Fedde Le Grand and Dimitri’s) votes as well. For those who vote, they will also have an opportunity to win tickets to this year’s edition of Tomorrowland Around the World.
The Sound of Tomorrow is a special competition that Le Grand has been a mentor of since its inception with last year’s semi-finalists in Ibiza and the winning artist Empra.
When asked about the secret ingredient to a DJ set at Tomorrowland,
“It’s not so much about you. It’s about the crowd. It’s about the narrative of the whole day of the entire weekend. It’s very important to feel where your place is in that story.”– Dimitri Vegas
