After playing three stellar sets in Tomorrowland Brazil, including two incredible B2B sets with Ida Engberg and Vintage Culture, the Brazilian DJ is coming out this year with full force. Her display of versatility on the mixing tables can range from Melodic Techno to darker kicks. Her production is undefeated as she consistently releases tracks with Afterlife. Moreover, she has time to acknowledge her softer and spiritual side, including her most recent Ambient album Intentions.

Nora En Pure

The master of the elements herself, the Swiss-South African DJ is known for her amazing Organic Deep House. She fuses technology and natural sounds to create a beautiful atmosphere during her sets. Nora returns to Petco Park for the second time to once again ring in the New Year, filled with love and energy.

Layla Benitez

Prepare for takeoff. The Miami-based Club Space Resident will add her enigmatic textures to this year’s lineup. Her mix of Melodic, Dark Disco and Retro Techno defines her from the rest. She consistently supports Afterlife lineups all around the globe and has received support from CAMELPHAT and Solumun. The daughter of Jellybean Benitez lives up to the family’s talent.


The American Grammy-nominated has dominated the scene since the early 2010s, and his magic doesn’t end. He released the first half of his upcoming album Grace as the EP Days Before Grace earlier this Fall and just finished a North American Tour to promote it. ZHU has amazing live shows and crazy DJ sets. We are really looking forward to his Proper set this year.
