Tomorrowland Attendee Dies on Day One of Event
The man passed away at a nearby hospital
Weekend one of Tomorrowland has been marred by the unfortunate death of one of its attendees. The 27-year-old man was found unresponsive near the festival’s main stage and had been revived on site. The Indian man was then transported to Antwerp University Hospital, where he eventually died.
According to The Brussel Times, local officials are treating the case as a drug-related death while an autopsy is pending. The Prosecutor’s office is awaiting toxicology reports to provide a definitive answer.
Tomorrowland is known as one of the biggest EDM festivals in the world, with over 400,000 attendees over a two-weekend span. The Boom, Belgium event is set to continue today and end on Sunday.
Above & Beyond Release “Flow State” Ambient Album
The tracks are meant for relaxation
Beloved U.K. trance trio Above & Beyond’s latest album release is not full of the fist-pumping beats or heartfelt lyrics fans may be used to. Instead, the group aimed to create a reflective, ambient album specifically for use in meditation and yoga.
“Flow State” contains tracks curated around introspection and deep thought, the latter of which is possible through its spoken word section. With help from Elena Brower, the talk focuses on self-acceptance and pursues encouragement.
In a statement on the album’s release, Above & Beyond said:
“Flow State is about the subtlest, innermost conversation, trusting ourselves, and looking inward for acceptance. That acceptance of our own humanity is an experience of Flow State. It’s a profoundly peaceful space for listening and healing,”
The nearly hourlong soundscape contains a collection of zen-infusing tracks that allow for concentration, clarity and a sense of peace.
