These Were the 20 Most Played Tracks During Weekend One of Tomorrowland 2022



Taking place in Boom, Belgium from July 15-17, globally renowned electronic festival Tomorrowland hosted roughly 200,000 fans while coming back to a live format for the first time since the pandemic. While more than 800 DJs played across 16 stages and  dropped thousands of tracks spanning different electronic genres, only 20 songs had the distinction of getting more play than all the others during the first of three weekends of Tomorrowland.

Data was collected by DJ Monitor, a global leader in electronic music monitoring with exclusive access to performance data from festivals, clubs, venues and online streams. DJ Monitor identifies music for Collective Management Organizations, rights users and technology companies worldwide.

Topping the list is Eurythmics‘ 1983 classic “Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)” (while the ominous ’80s banger has gotten a few recent edits, the original was the one getting so heavily rinsed at Tomorrowland 2022.) On its tail at No. 2 is another piece of nostalgia via Acraze‘s unstoppable remix of Cherish‘s 2006 classic “Do It To It.” Following that is “Move Your Body,” the 2021 hit from Brazilian artists Ownboss and SEVEK.

The remainder of the list contains fresh tracks and other genre classics that audiences (and artists, apparently) never get tired of, including Shouse’s 2017 monster hit “Love Tonight,” Sebastian Ingrosso, Tommy Trash and John Martin’s 2013 EDM anthem  “Reload,” and, of course, Avicii‘s 2011 genre defining smash “Levels.” See the complete list below.

Robert Smith Says 7,000 Scalped Cure Tickets Have Been Canceled



The Cure‘s Robert Smith continues his long-drawn-out battle against the many monetary hurdles of the ticketing world — this time, he’s taking on secondary resale websites.

Just a few weeks ago, Smith was able to secure several refunds from Ticketmaster for fans looking to catch the British band on their forthcoming “Lost World” tour. Now, Smith says they’ve managed to cancel 7,000 scalped tickets and further announced a plan to resell scalped tickets and donate the original fees to the charity Amnesty International.

When the tour — the band’s first North American trek in seven years — was first announced on March 9, the Cure clearly stated they had opted out of Ticketmaster’s “platinum” and “dynamically priced” ticket options, both of which have infamously been the cause of a massive uptick in ticket prices (the latest case of this being Drake and 21 Savage’s “It’s All a Blur” summer tour.)

As a result, thousands of scalpers swept in, with Smith tweeting on Monday morning that “Approx 7k tickets across approx 2200 orders have been cancelled. These are tickets acquired with fake accounts / listed on secondary resale sites.”

The night prior, Smith said ticket buyers should not try to find a loophole with ticket transfer rules, and warned, “offering to sell/send account login details to get around [Ticketmaster] transfer limitations… any/all tickets obtained in this way will be canceled, and original fees paid on those tickets will not be refunded.”

This is just the latest update in a long list of efforts on Smith’s part to get ahead of the “‘Ticketmaster ‘Fees’ debacle,” he previously put it. “I am as sickened as you all are,” Smith wrote in a long string of all-caps Tweets earlier this month. “To be very clear: The artist has no way to limit them. I have been asking how they are justified. If I get anything coherent by way of an answer I will let you all know.”

The band will hit the road starting May 10 in New Orleans for 30 dates with a closing show on June 1 in Miami.

Illinois Theater Roof Collapse During Tornado Leaves One Concertgoer Dead, Dozens Injured



A roof collapse at the Apollo Theater in Belvidere, Ill. left a 50-year-old man dead and dozens more injured on Friday evening.

The Apollo Theater was hosting “The United States of Terror” tour, headlined by four heavy metal bands — Crypta, Revocation, Skeletal Remains and Morbid Angel. After Crypta’s opening set, the venue made an announcement that the show would need to take a brief pause before Morbid Angel took the stage, due to the ongoing extreme weather conditions. Minutes after the initial announcement, the full roof collapsed on top of the concertgoers, per the New York Times.

The venue was hosting roughly 260 patrons at the time of the collapse, with many ticketholders having not yet arrived for what was expected to be a lengthy show. More than 40 people were hospitalized, with five people suffering severe injuries. At least one person died in the incident. Belvidere Fire Chief Shawn Schadle reported that two of those impacted are suffering with life-threatening injuries.

Band members of Crypta and Morbid Angel have shared that members of both groups sustained no serious injuries.

According to the National Weather Service, the Apollo suffered “possible tornado damage.” A storm with 75 mph winds had been sweeping through the northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin region. Authorities believe concertgoers weren’t aware of the storm and tornado sirens due to the volume of music at the venue.

A series of tornadoes have ripped through the Midwest and Southern United States in recent days, killing at least nine people in Indiana, Mississippi and Arkansas. At least 30 people were injured in Little Rock, Ark. ahead of the Belvidere emergency. 16 million people from Texas to Michigan were put under tornado watches on Friday.

Soon after the incident, Illinois Gov. J.B Pritzker notified residents that his administration was “closely monitoring” the situation and would soon have resources for those impacted.
