Enjoy the 2 hours of high energy flowing electronic music at the event held on Friday night of 20th & 21st of December, 2013. More than 35,000 fans attended the event, marking another milestone in Belgian EDM history.
Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike joined forces with their mentors from Tomorrowland to bring their first Solo ‘Bringing Home The Madness’ Concerts in the Belgium’s most legendary venue : Sportpaleis Antwerpen.
After playing some of the larges stages in the world, attracting record-breaking views during the Tomorrowland live stream ànd a main stage liveset recording clocking up 10 million views to date , 6 Beatport No.1 Hits, reaching almost 3 million fans on Facebook, plus being voted #6 Dj’s in the World in this year’s DJMAG TOP 100 DJS – the stars were aligned right to take the next step in their already impressive musical career.
The brothers began teasing a huge announcement over the summer, throwing out various cryptic clues during Tomorrowland and over social media.
A strange message, displayed all over Belgium, sparked a virtual firestorm as fans scrambled to decipher the meaning: “Was it an Album?’ ‘A documentary perhaps?”
In September, the Sportpaleis date was announced with an over-the-top trailer and its own website, generating a storm of online buzz.
With the first date selling out it’s 19.000 tickets in hardly a day and over 10.000 fans subscribing to a waiting list – hoping to still get hold of a ticket – the choice to add a second date was an obvious one.
Adding a chart-breaking ‘Bringing Home The Madness’ mixed compilation to the story ànd a #1 Chart position for their latest single ‘Find Tomorrow – Ocarina’ featuring UK Superstar Katy B and their protegés Wolfpack – paved the way for one of the most anticipated events of the year.
The show itself carried the same dramatic flair, creating an overwhelming spectacle – big enough to turn a two-hour DJ performance intro a smashing, electrifying, fist-pumping larger-than-life experience. With over a 1000 m² LED Wall, next level lighting, C02, Fireworks and enough lasers to make even George Lucas envious – the production of the show was on true ‘Tomorrowland- Level’.
For the people missing out on a ticket, the team added a livestream that attracted over 100.000 viewers, reaching ‘trending topic’ with #BTHM on Twitter. With guests like Nicky Romero, W&W and Wolfpack joining the party, plus a stadium packed to the rafters with screaming fans, Bringing Home The Madness had all the hallmarks of an absolutely classic live experience, wherever in the world you were.
