With the 10th anniversary of Tomorrowland officially in the books and summer coming to a close, it’s time to turn our attention towards TomorrowWorld, the sister festival of the famed ID&T-produced Belgian festival. Since making its way across the Atlantic in 2013, TomorrowWorld has established itself as one of the premiere electronic dance music events in North America, right alongside festivals like EDC Las Vegas and Ultra. During its inaugural year, TomorrowWorld welcomed over 140,000 festival-goers eager to catch sets by the likes of Hardwell, Armin van Buuren, Tiesto, and more of the 300 other artists that were slated to play at TomorrowWorld.

Year after year, TomorrowWorld has continued to diversify its offerings, both musical and not. New to TomorrowWorld this year are activities like Breakfast Beats and Bass Bodies Workouts in DreamVille and brand new stage curators like Thomas Jack, who will be curating the first-ever tropical house stage at TomorrowWorld, and The Magician.

This year’s festival will features its biggest and best lineup to date, as artists across the entire musical spectrum will be making the trek to Chattahoochee Hills for TomorrowWorld. Main stage icons like Hardwell, Tiesto, and Armin van Buuren sit alongside underground legends like Jamie Jones, Joseph Capriatti, and the newly formed superduo, Get Real. Nearly every genre in dance music will be well-represented, from trance by Armin and Andrew Rayel, to bass music by Bro Safari and Bassnectar, to future bass by Wave Racer and Giraffage.

With so many stand-out artists on the lineup, we’ve decided to showcase a few of our favorite artists that will be playing the third running of TomorrowWorld this year. Whether it’s because of a brand new album, new live show, or just some great music, these artists are at the top of their game and know how to throw a party when they’re on stage.

The first artist we’re going to showcase is the UK deep house phenom Maya Jane Coles.

Hailing from London, Maya Jane Coles developed a passion for music early on, setting a strong foundation for her future success. As a young teenager, Maya Jane Coles decided that music was her passion, and went on to teach herself how to produce music using the Cubase software when she was fifteen. As a seventeen-year-old, Maya bought herself SL-1210 turntables in an effort to teach herself how to mix on vinyl, and by the time the London native was 24, she had already played gigs in over 30 countries, including legendary spots like Fabric in London and Verboten in New York City.

Her first forays into production were experiments in hip hop and trip hop in 2006 before she settled into her signature house style in 2008. She’s continued to produce house music under her real name, while she’s tried her hand at dubstep under the Nocturnal Sunshine moniker and is a part of the electronic duo, She Is Danger, with Lena Cullen.

Maya Jane Coles first broke through in the music industry with remixes of Massive Attack and Gorillaz as part of She Is Danger, before going on to release her stand out, four-track EP, What They Say, on Real Tone Records. Her stellar EP resulted in DJ Mag naming Maya as one of the best newcomer artists in 2010, which served as a springboard to her success. In 2013, Maya Jane Coles released her debut artist album, Comfort, and like all of her productions, the talented musician handled the writing, producing, arrangement, and mixing of the entire record. Her stellar productions have already received the support from the likes of Jamie Jones, Diplo, Pete Tong, Skream, Richie Hawtin, and plenty of other superstars – proving that Maya Jane Coles is not a flash in the pan, rather she is an immense talent that is here to stay.

The half-Japanese, half-English producer will be handling headlining duties at this year’s TomorrowWorld, and you can be sure that her vast repertoire of music will be on display at the festival. Maya Jane Coles is no stranger to the stage, and she will have played shows in over 40 countries by the time she takes the decks at TomorrowWorld. Tickets to TomorrowWorld are still available for purchase here.
