Taking the helm of the ‘Arch Stage’ on Sunday 23rd July Dave Clarke will continue to bring his passion for techno to Tomorrowland, flying the flag for the sounds of the underground. Joining the previously announced Ben Klock, Ken Ishii and Len Faki will be Blade & Beard, Charlotte de Witte, Fabrice Lig and Rebekah.
Blade & Beard are the Iranian dj’s at the centre of Tehran’s underground techno scene who risked their lives for their passion. We can’t wait to be inspired by these dj’s who fought for what they believe in. Now that’s true anarchic techno spirit, fitting for Dave Clarke’s stage. Belgium Dj Charlotte de Witte is gaurenteed to get you moving embracing the dark side of techno and she is ready to bring raw emotion and melancholy to her set at Tomorrowland. Again from Belgium Fabrice Lig has created a sound of his own, inspired by the techno soul of Detroit, the spirit of Jazz and soul, the groove from funk music and the beats of N-Y 80’s electro. Last but by no means least Rebekah, who’s ferocious sound and love affair with the harder sounds has established her as one of the leading exponents of techno on the global circuit. Let her unleash the beast at Tomorrowland.
This will be the 6th year in a row Clarke has been entrusted with his own stage at Tomorrowland, a responsibility he doesn’t take lightly. Each year he aims to put techno firmly at the forefront at this globally renowned festival, bringing the best artists the scene has to offer to his stage with this years line up being one of the strongest yet.
With Clarke at the helm, this is going to be an electric mix cutting-edge underground dance music with something for every discerning music lover.

ABOUT DAVE CLARKE
He may be known as The Baron Of Techno, a moniker given to him by renowned BBC Radio DJ / journalist John Peel, but Dave Clarke has an anarchist streak a mile wide and punk in his soul, having no truck with establishment figures or authoritarianism.
A hard working purist, forward thinking futurist, technology geek, part Gothic and gadget lover who embraced the digital revolution in an early stage while his peers where still sniffing the smell of vinyl, a format he hasn’t used professionally in eleven years. It’s unsurprising he revels in the libertarianism of the World Wide Web. It gives symmetry to his savvy techno vision.
As a talented DJ and producer Dave Clarke will continue his newfound love for making music, gather air miles by the gallon and preach his vision on techno both on the decks and on the radio, whilst never forgetting the long and bumpy journey he had to undertake to get where he is now: on top of the game, respected by both fans and peers and very much relevant in today’s scene. “He might be established, but he will never be establishment”. www.daveclarke.com
