The Belgium-based festival once again took the top spot in DJ Mags' annual poll.
Belgium’s Tomorrowland has been voted the World’s No. 1 Festival in the DJ Mag Top 100 Festivals poll 2023.
This year, over 100,000 verified votes were cast in the poll between 26th April and 21st June, with Tomorrowland once again coming out on top as readers’ favourite festival after it topped the magazine’s first-ever Top 100 Festivals back in 2019, when the poll was voted for by top DJs, and returned to the No.1 spot last year as voted by the public.
The world-renowned EDM festival is one of the largest and most iconic music festivals in the world, known for its elaborate stage designs, impressive lineups, and immersive atmosphere. Over the years, punters have flocked to the legendary event to catch major names like Armin van Buuren, David Guetta, Martin Garrix, Tiësto, Afrojack, Steve Aoki and many, many more.
Speaking on being voted the World’s No. 1 Festival in the DJ Mag Top 100 Festivals 2023, Tomorrowland founders Manu and Michiel Beers, said, “We are delighted to once again receive this recognition from the public, festival goers and DJ Mag readers.”
“What once started as a dream, took wings thanks to the tireless efforts of a passionate young team and the enthusiasm and unconditional support of the Tomorrowland community, the People of Tomorrow.”
They added, “We are already looking forward to the 20th anniversary next year but now we are getting ready for the return to Brazil in a few weeks."
