Film and music Composer Hans Zimmer created the first official hymn for the 10th anniversary of Tomorrowland, a leading electronic dance music festival. It is held every year in the Belgain town of Boom which is just outside of Brussels. This year’s event takes place July 18-20 and July 25-27. Zimmer, who is a Oscar-winning composer was approached by the festival to compose a classical piece that would give the “mystical, magical” feeling the festival is known for. Zimmer writes similar pieces and is perfect for this position. It was recorded in Air Studios in London where he previously made soundtracks for movies such as Pirates of the Caribbean, The Da Vinci Code and The Dark Knight. This new piece will become the official soundtrack for Tomorrowland.
Zimmer stated, “Tomorrowland is a known quantity to me, and after 10 years, I think they deserve something decent for their anniversary. It should be culturally diverse and somehow represent the whole world. The hymn is about bringing different cultures together, and all the things that make us different are actually the things we should be celebrating.”
