Announced to be taking over the Freedom Stage for a set earlier today, the addition of this new project from Tiësto adds to an already impressive lineup that features others including Armin van Burren, ANNA, Vini Vici, and more.
“I would describe VER:WEST as melodic house music. It’s a lot deeper and more chill and a very different energy than Tiësto. I got this opportunity from Tomorrowland to express a different side of me which I’ve never done before. I know they are going to put amazing visuals around it and make it look really different and cool. Expect the unexpected, it’s going to look amazing!”VER:WEST
