Tomorrowland 2023, one of the world’s most prestigious electronic music festivals, recently set the stage alight in Boom, Belgium.

Echoing the sentiment of a former Miss Universe, Maluma’s presence reaffirmed that “today we are managing to lead different scenarios worldwide.”

The festival, which was streamed globally, saw the Antioquian artist Maluma perform the song “Parcera” with DJ Gordo, a Guatemalan-American DJ who commands a substantial standing in the electronic music genre.

At Tomorrowland 2023, Maluma followed in the footsteps of fellow Colombian artist Karol G.
