3) David Guetta drops a Nursery Rhyme in his set
The veteran in the scene seemed to be having a little fun this year as he unexpectedly dropped a remix of the classic nursery rhyme “If your happy and you know it”.
The mix was a sure contrast to the rest of his big room set but it definitely did the trick and brought out the child in each and every fan, who surely enough complied to the lyrics and clapped and cheered along.
4) Steve Aoki brings the Titanic theme song in his sets
Steve Aoki is known for his electric sets and surely enough he didn’t fail to disappoint his fans, but during his set he decided to slow things down but dropping a sick remix of the ever famous Titanic theme song, Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On.”
He starts off the song just as it is and the crowd begins to sing along, but as the song progresses, it’s obvious a trade mark Steve Aoki drop is fast approaching and sure enough it does and gets the crowd raving.
5) Indians steal the show

Another moment that left fans awe struck was surprisingly not by any DJ, but instead was a surprise performance called the Symphony of Unity by the National Orchestra of Belgium. Neither would the orchestra have known what kind of response to expect from the crowd nor would the people of Tomorrowland have envisaged such a beautiful performance and this by itself made the show all the more marvellous.
