The pop star was confirmed as the main act of this year’s digital music festival, which will see its digital launch from July 25-26. Steve Aoki, Armin van Buuren, and Afrojack have also joined the performers’ lineup for the show.
Given the ongoing threat of COVID-19 (coronavirus), many of this year’s festivals have resorted to virtual broadcasts or postponing events indefinitely. The two-day music event will make use of the latter medium, promising this year’s virtual ceremony “will be a fully interactive 3D festival combining the world’s best technologies in gaming, 3D design, video production, and special effects for an unparalleled digital experience.”
“I’ve always wanted to be a part of the fun of Tomorrowland, and have been following the amazing innovation, technology, and invention that this festival has always been about for a long time,” the American Idol judge said in a statement. “I’m so glad to be a part of this version, and I hope my set makes you smile.”
The “Dark Horse” singer will not only be delivering some of her greatest hits in front of a visual backdrop, Perry is also singing songs from her long-awaited fifth studio album, Smile.
The popular electronic dance music fest, which launched in 2005, intends to bring over 60 of the world’s most well-renowned EDM musicians for several performances across eight different stages.
