Kings of the festival dance scene and one of the most successful DJ duos in the history of electronic music, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike are set to arrive to the Addiko Main Stage powered by Turistička organizacija Budve of Sea Dance Festival on August 31st. The Belgian duo of Greek origin are officially the best ranked international DJ duo at the most famous DJ Mag Top 100 list in the past years. Only a few years ago they were declared the best in the world and with following four vice-champion ranks to folow in the past 5 years, they are well above the likes of Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, Calvin Harris, Avicci, and many others. They have broken the German record for the largest solo electronic music performance, with 45,000 thrilled visitors, and the speed at which they sold tickets in their native country, Belgium (60,000 tickets in three days), previously set by U2 and Madonna! Judging by their Exit 2016 performance, when world-famous Dance Arena reached full capacity, their Sea Dance performance will undoubtedly be full to the brim! This also means that Sea Dance will be in line with some of the greatest world festivals that this duo is performing at, such as the colossal Tomorrowland, of which they are practically a trademark, and many others like British Creamsfield, Dutch Mysteryland, Hungarian Balaton Sound, Austrian Electric Love etc.
Belgium brothers of Greek origin, Dimitri and Michael Thivaos, are known as the hosts of the famous Tomorrowland festivals, whose anthems they have been composing since 2010, and after 10 first places in a row, the largest electronic music store, Beatport, awarded them the title of performers of the year, while their hits, “Tremor” and “Mamouth”, as well as live recordings, keep hitting billions of views on Youtube. Apart from working with colleagues such as David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Martin Garrix, Afrojack and Diplo, this versatile duo is knocking it out of the ball park with remixes for stars such as The Weeknd, Major Lazer and many others. They have also cooperated with the favorites of the current world production, while their remix of Hans Zimmer’s easily recognizable film theme “He’s a Pirate” found its place on the soundtrack of the latest sequel to the cinema hit Pirates of the Caribbean.
With some of the best dance music sound, the audience of this year’s Sea Dance Festival will be having a party at the TDI radio stage as well! Danny Cruz, Rosske, Oysha, Mirko i Meex, Lucky Dee, Cavin Viviano, Mark funk, Vll & Vash, Drop Department, Divolly & Markward will be in charge of unforgettable times and partying until the early morning hours on Buljarice beach in Budva, the hidden turquoise pearl of the Adriatic.
