The Arising of Life

In 2013 all tickets sold out in record time and 200+ nationalities gathered in Boom to experience what is now also the most listened to music festival on the planet. Several of those nationalities have travelled to the festival with a Global Journey Package, the official Tomorrowland Travel packages.

2012

2012

The Book of Wisdom

After winning the International Dance Music Award for Best Music Event in Miami for the first time in 2012, Tomorrowland had officially become the most global festival on earth. A whopping two million people visited the website of the festival, hoping to score a ticket – over ten times more than the number of available tickets. Tomorrowland launches its own YouTube channel in 2012 – broadcasting DJ sets, interviews and behind-the-scenes features. With well over eight million people tuning in, Tomorrowland quickly and easily becomes the most-watched music festival on the planet. Its official after movie adds another one hundred million views (and still counting) to that claim.

2011

The demand for tickets was much higher than the years before, so in 2011 Tomorrowland added a third day. All 180,000 tickets sold out in less than a day.

In 2009, Tomorrowland was successfully launched into orbit, when for the first time in its history all tickets are sold-out. Once again, temperatures reached record-breaking levels, while surprise act Moby widened the festival’s profile and appeal. Belgium’s already rich nightlife scene –including some of the world’s most legendary labels, clubs, parties and artists in the history of electronic music – had finally stepped into to the daylight, and people were watching.

2008

2008

In 2008, Tomorrowland’s real breakthrough happened. 50,000 people flocked together in Boom for a collective – and quite literal – meltdown, and they also prepared for the festival to be sent up in the sky and have it orbit the globe for decades to come.

2007

2006

2006

In the second year, Tomorrowland took place in July. Word-of-mouth was growing stronger throughout Belgium, and with eight stages and enough extra space to put up three thousand sleeping beauties, the second edition wasn’t only bigger in terms of attendance but also in magic and experience.

2005

Sunday August 14, 2005 – a magical date in the history of Tomorrowland. A brand new festival popped up, transforming the town of Boom into a fairy tale dominion, where enchanting electronic music was to be heard from behind every tree and out of every rabbit hole. From the start Tomorrowland turned out to be a grand spectacle, unlike anything that came before it. But this was only the beginning of our fairy tale... About 10,000 people bore witness to the first edition of Tomorrowland, and to the magic that surrounded it (including DJ sets by Sven Väth, Sasha, Armin van Buuren, Erol Alkan and Justice).

A Late-Pandemic Commute, Feeding Hate on YouTube and the Mariachis Unsilenced by Covid: The Week in Narrated Articles

Five articles from around The Times, narrated just for you.

This weekend, listen to a collection of narrated articles from around The New York Times, read aloud by the reporters who wrote the story.

“After more than a year since my last rush-hour train, I found myself suppressing the muscle memory of contact sports as I laid claim to a throne in a car with just two other passengers,” writes Dan Barry. “The blue seats were the same, the clouded windows, the air-conditioning hush; yet it felt as though I’d boarded a train in another country.”

In his essay on a return to New Jersey Transit, Dan meditates on the nature of the post-pandemic commute.

A Farmer Moved a 200-Year-Old Stone, and the French-Belgian Border

Written and narrated by Anna Schaverien

When it comes to redrawing nations’ borders, scores of diplomats can spend years painstakingly hashing out every inch of the dividing line. For the border between France and Belgium to be redrawn, all it seemingly took was one farmer.

Apparently frustrated by a 200-year-old stone border marker, a Belgian farmer dug it out and moved it about seven feet into French territory, thus slightly enlarging his own land as well as the entire country of Belgium.

Feeding Hate With Video: A Former Alt-Right YouTuber Explains His Methods

Written and narrated by Cade Metz

Focus on conflict. Feed the algorithm. Make sure whatever you produce reinforces a narrative. Don’t worry if it is true.

Caolan Robertson produced videos for a who’s who of right-wing YouTube personalities on both sides of the Atlantic, including Lauren Southern, Stefan Molyneux and Alex Jones. The videos were tailored for the “echo chamber” that is often created by social media networks like YouTube.

The calendars of mariachi bands nationwide used to be full of dates for weddings, quinceañeras and serenades where the vigorous music of Mexican culture helped enliven some of life’s most joyous moments.

With the onset of the pandemic, those opportunities disappeared, leaving behind only the funerals — the mounting number of funerals — that have kept some mariachis from financial ruin.

When leaving the Dominican Republic to play baseball in the United States with a high school diploma, Ubaldo Jiménez promised his mother he’d continue his education.

All these years later — after 12 major league seasons, a World Series appearance, a no-hitter and more than $65 million in career earnings — Jiménez, 37, kept his word and accomplished something rare among professional baseball players: He received a college degree.

Stromae

In this Dutch name, the surname is Van Haver, not Haver.

Belgian singer-songwriter, rapper and producer

Musical artist

Paul Van Haver (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈpɔːl vɑn ˈɦɑvər]; born 12 March 1985), better known by his stage nameStromae[stʁomaj][1]), is a Belgian musician, rapper, singer and songwriter. He is mostly known for his works in the genre of the hip hop and electronic music. Stromae came to wide public attention in 2009 with his song "Alors on danse" (from the album Cheese), which became a number one in several European countries. In 2013, his second album Racine carrée was a commercial success, selling 2 million copies in France[2] alone and nearly 600,000 units elsewhere.[citation needed] The main singles from the album include "Papaoutai" and "Formidable". He has sold over 8.5 million records worldwide. His music is primarily sung in French, though he has performed some songs in Flemish.[citation needed]

Early life[edit]

Paul Van Haver was born in Brussels and raised in the city's Laeken district, to a Rwandan Tutsi father, Pierre Rutare, and a Belgian Flemish mother, Miranda Van Haver.[3][4] He and his siblings were raised by their mother, as his father, a prominent architect, was killed during the 1994 Rwandan genocide, while visiting his family.[3][5] He attended the Sacré-coeur de Jette, a Jesuit school in Jette, the Collège Saint-Paul in Godinne, after failing in the public school system at the age of sixteen.[5] He formed a small rap group with his friends while still in school. His early influences included Belgian singer-songwriter Jacques Brel, Cuban son, and Congolese rumba.[6]

Career[edit]

2000–07: Early career[edit]

In 2000, he appeared as a rapper called Opmaestro, though he later changed his stage name to "Stromae", which is "Maestro" with the syllables reversed following the French slang practice, verlan.[5]

At the age of 18, he founded a rap group called "Suspicion", along with rapper "J.E.D.I." in Eichhof. They produced the song and music video "Faut que t'arrête le Rap..." before J.E.D.I. decided to leave the rap duo. To finance his private school education, Van Haver worked part-time in the hospitality industry, but his academic performance wasn't up to standard.[citation needed] It was only later, when he registered at the Institut national de radioélectricité et cinématographie, that he released his first EP "Juste un cerveau, un flow, un fond et un mic...".[citation needed]

2007–08: Debut EP and record career[edit]

In 2007, during his studies at the film school of Brussels, Stromae decided to concentrate fully on his musical career. This resulted in his debut-EP "Juste un cerveau, un flow, un fond et un mic…". In 2008 he signed a 4-year record deal with "Becock Music" and 'Kilomaître'.[citation needed]

2008–2012: Breakthrough and international success[edit]

In 2008, Stromae worked as a young trainee at the music radio station NRJ in Brussels. Vincent Verbelen, Music Manager, was impressed by the talent he perceived in Stromae's first single "Alors on danse" and decided to air it for the first time on NRJ. The response from listeners (including influential personalities ranging from Anna Wintour and Jean-Claude Van Damme, to the then-president of France Nicolas Sarkozy)[citation needed] was one of extreme enthusiasm and Stromae came to wider public attention. In a few weeks from that point, sales of the song established it as number one in Belgium.[citation needed]

Vertigo Records, a label of Mercury Records France (Universal Music Group), signed him for a worldwide licensing deal soon after this.[citation needed]

By May 2010 the track "Alors on danse" had reached number one in Belgium, France, Sweden, Greece, Germany, Austria, Turkey, Switzerland, Italy, Denmark, Romania, and the Czech Republic.[citation needed]

On 2 September, Stromae collaborated with Kanye West and Gilbere Forte in a remix of his hit "Alors on danse".[7] In 2010, he was nominated for Best Dutch and Belgian Act at the MTV Europe Music Awards.[citation needed]

Of his music and influences, he has said: "I was in a little group doing rap music. I thought that rather than copying the French sound, I'd focus on a more American style but give it a European spin. And then I rediscovered the 90s Eurodance. For a long time we were ashamed of that sound but in fact, there's a lot to discover. It has its roots in everything from house to salsa. I also really admire Jacques Brel – he has been a huge influence on me – but also all sorts of other stuff, Cuban son, and the Congolese rumba, that I heard as a child; that music rocked the whole of Africa." Also, Stromae insists he wanted to collaborate with up and coming rap group Swag+5 featuring rapper T-Jay. In the end, the collaboration did not take place, but Stromae is a big fan of the America-based group.[8] The critic Molloy Woodcraft: "He combines 90s electro synths and beats with a laidback delivery to the mesmeric effect".[citation needed]

He is one of the ten winners of the European Border Breakers Award 2011. On 9 February 2011, his debut album Cheese (including the hit single "Alors on danse") won the award for Best Dance Album at the Victoires de la musique.[citation needed]

On 23 May 2011, during the recording of the French TV show Taratata, Stromae did a mashup of "Alors on danse" and "Don't Stop the Party" with the Black Eyed Peas. Stromae also announced he would perform as the opening support act for the first of two concerts by the band in Paris on 24 and 25 June 2011 at Stade De France.[9] Stromae had previously met will.i.am at the NRJ Music Awards in January. will.i.am told him that he liked "Alors on danse" and said he wanted to collaborate with Stromae.[citation needed]

In 2011, he received one nomination for Best Belgian Act at the MTV Europe Music Awards.[10]

2013–2017: Racine carrée[edit]

The first single "Papaoutai" from his second album Racine carrée (English: Square root) was digitally released on 13 May 2013. It went on to chart number 1 in Belgium and France, number 2 in the Netherlands, as well as number 7 in Germany and Switzerland.[citation needed]

On 22 May 2013, amateur-looking videos appeared on YouTube showing Stromae, apparently drunk and wandering at the Louiza tram station in Brussels at dawn.[11] The videos went viral. A few days later, it was revealed that this was linked with the filming of a professional music video. This was confirmed during an appearance by Stromae on the French TV show Ce soir ou jamais in which he discussed and also performed his new single "Formidable", which is about the story of a drunk man just separated from his girlfriend. The music video was made from edited hidden-camera footage taken on 22 May. It also shows people taking pictures with their cellphones, people who are clearly irritated by his drunk actions, people helping him stand up, and three policemen asking if the artist was okay or if he needed some help.[12][13] The policemen also got some critiques for not disciplining the drunk Stromae; however, they later claimed that the full story hadn't been shown. The part where they returned and Stromae had to explain his case was not broadcast.[14]

On 26 July 2013, Stromae announced on his Facebook[15] and Twitter[16] accounts that he had completed his second studio album Racine carrée or and that it would be released on 16 August 2013. On 25 August 2013, Stromae joined Major Lazer's show at French festival Rock en Seine, where he performed Papaoutai. In September 2013, Belgian rock band Mintzkov covered his song "Formidable/Wonderful" for a live session on Studio Brussel, with lyrics in English. In November 2013, Stromae received the award for Best Belgian Act at the MTV Europe Music Awards.[17][18]

On 22 February 2014, he performed his song Formidable as a guest at the Sanremo Music Festival in Italy.[19]

On 17 March 2014, it was made public that Stromae's song "Ta fête" would become the official song for the Belgian national football team at the 2014 World Cup.[20]

In June 2014, in support of Racine carrée, Stromae made his US television debut on NBC's Late Night with Seth Meyers.[21] He then embarked on a tour across the United States and performed at the Best Buy Theater in New York City.[22][23] While in New York, on 22 June 2014, Stromae guest starred in a Snapchat story with Jerome Jarre as The Carrot's Father.[24] On 21 October 2014, it was revealed that New Zealand singer Lorde invited Stromae to work on the soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 along with artists like Kanye West, Grace Jones, Diplo and The Chemical Brothers.[29] He contributed to the song "Meltdown" which also features Pusha T, Q-Tip, Haim and Lorde herself.[30] The singer had declared herself a fan of Stromae after attending his concert earlier that month.[31] In March 2015, Stromae released a music video for the song "Carmen", which was directed by Sylvain Chomet. The video warns people against the addictive qualities of social media apps such as Twitter.[32]

Stromae continued touring the United States, performing in March 2015 in several places including the SXSW in Austin, Texas.[33] He was also among the line-up of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.[34][35] He then began a tour in Africa on 13 May. However, in mid-June Stromae was forced to cancel the remaining of his shows until 2 August for health reasons.[36] He performed at Madison Square Garden in October, becoming the first exclusively French-singing performer to sell out that venue.[37][38]

On 14 September 2015, Stromae released a single "Quand c'est?", a song about cancer, which plays on the fact that "Quand c'est?" (When is it?) and "cancer" are phonetically similar in French.[39]

By the end of 2015, the album became the first in over a decade to reach 2 million sales in France.[citation needed]

2018–present: New work[edit]

On 6 April 2018, Stromae released his first new single in more than three years, "Défiler", to accompany the release of "Capsule 5" a new fashion line.[40][41][42] The song was co-composed with his brother, Luc Junior Tam.[43] The song's lyrics play on the meanings in the French language of the words "défiler" ("to parade/pass by," often used to refer to models walking down a runway), "fil" (thread, line) and "filer" (to whiz by), evoking themes of modeling and superficiality; of life speeding by; and of toeing the line or hanging by a thread.[44]

In 2019, he co-produced and provided vocals, in French, for the song "Arabesque" of the band Coldplay, for their album Everyday Life.[45]

On November 10, 2020, during his first Live Instagram on the occasion of Mosaert's 10th anniversary, he mentioned working on new music. Finally, on October 15, 2021 his first single in 3 years, named "Santé", was released.

Other ventures[edit]

Stromae as a Maestro[edit]

The name "Stromae" comes from switching the syllables in the word "maestro".[46] This inversion is a result of French slang[47] known as verlan.[48]

True to the origins of his artistic identity, Van Haver has produced a number of videos described as leçons, or lessons, released on YouTube.

Leçon 21 is entitled Silence,[49] leçon 24 is entitled les leçons c'est "tous les mêmes," and is delivered by Stromae on a gondola in Venice.[50] Leçon 28 is entitled "ta fête" (hymne red devils),[51] and features the National football team of Belgium.[52]

Stromae is known for his distinctive physique and clothing style. He has used this image in launching a limited fashion line, Mosaert (an anagram of his stage name). The collection features bright colors and geometric patterns, and has been described as "hipster" and "retro kitsch". Stromae has said that he wanted to "create a bridge between British style and African aesthetic".[53]

The first collection was a success, with stocks almost sold out after three days.[54] The second collection, Capsule No. 2, was released at Colette in Paris on 3 December 2014, and features the square root design on each item in different colors.[55][56] Capsule No. 3 was released on 7 April 2016, a music track was released on 31 March 2017 to promote the line.[57] The new designs are the first to use patterns not previously worn by Stromae, reflecting Mosaert's intention to gradually move into a separate stylistic identity for the clothing line.[58][59]

On 6 April 2018, Mosaert presented a fashion show at Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche in Paris to mark the release of its latest collection, "Capsule n°5", which was accompanied by the release of Stromae's first new single in more than five years, "Défiler".[41]

Collaborations[edit]

In 2009, Stromae collaborated with Kery James on the song Ghetto (feat. J-mi Sissoko) and was the subject of his lesson number 14 series on YouTube.[60]

In 2010, Stromae’s song “Alors on danse” was remixed by both Pitbull and Kanye West. West and Stromae also performed the remix live at Coachella in 2015. [61]

Stromae collaborated with Lorde, Haim, Pusha T, and Q-Tip for the song Meltdown in 2014. The track was featured on the soundtrack for the film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1.[62]

Stromae collaborated with director Henry Scholfield to produce the music video for English artist Dua Lipa's single 'IDGAF' released on 12 January 2018.[63]

Stromae provided vocals for Coldplay’s 2019 single Arabesque on their eighth studio album Everyday Life.[64]

Stromae also collaborated with French rapper Orelsan on a song named "La Pluie".[65]

Personal life[edit]

In 2015 he had to cancel a tour through Africa because of anxiety caused by the malaria medicine Lariam (Mefloquine). Since then Stromae has avoided public appearances. In an interview in 2017, he stated that he still suffers from panic attacks and initially left open whether he would ever be able to make music professionally again.[66] Since 2018 he has been showing himself in public again.[67]

On 12 December 2015, Van Haver was secretly married to Coralie Barbier by well-known Catholic priest Guy Gilbert, in a private ceremony held in Mechelen.[68] His first son was born on 23 September 2018.[69]

Musical style[edit]

Stromae's music is heavily influenced by electronic music, especially Belgian New Beat music.[70] He has been touted as the "face of the New Beat generation".[71] He also considers Congolese music to be a huge influence.[citation needed]

Stromae has been compared to Jacques Brel, who in turn significantly influenced Stromae, with Stromae even covering several of his songs.[72]
