Following a taste of his upcoming side project VER:WEST, Tiësto has revealed he will debut the new alias at Tomorrowland‘s digital event, Around The World. The hotly-anticipated virtual festival will welcome an extensive selection of talent including Martin Garrix, David Guetta, Armin van Buuren, Charlotte de Witte, Tale Of Us, and the recently-announced Katy Perry, among many others. Around The World will take place the weekend of July 25-26.
Tiësto first previewed VER:WEST on July 9, hinting at a return to his classic trance and progressive house roots, before sharing the project would be unveiled at Tomorrowland’s forthcoming event. The Dutch DJ described the direction as melodic house, noting VER:WEST’s sound as, “a lot deeper and more chill, a very different energy than Tiësto.” The upcoming single “5 Seconds Before Sunrise,” is slated for release July 17 via AFTR:HRS.
