Tomorrowland, 20 thru 29 July, Boom, Beligum
July 20, 2018 - July 29, 2018
Boom – Tomorrowland: Boom, Belgium’s Tomorrowland is the one of most popular music festivals in the world, if not the universe.
Tomorrowland is so big — 400,000 attended in 2017 — it’s held on two separate weekends in July at a dedicated park. This is more than a music festival: it’s a global enterprise that can book your trip — including airfare/bus/train — then provides high-end food and beer, as well as a place to stay like DreamVille, where there are sleeping accommodations.
And it’s notoriously hard to attend; in 2015, the 10th anniversary of Tomrrowland, there were 2 million people on the waiting list after the festival sold-out in 8 seconds.
This year’s Tomorrowland is scheduled for 20 through 22 and 27 through 29 July. The theme is “The Story of Planaxis,” which refers to a genus of small sea snails; thus, lots of watery journeys and dreams this time around.
And what sirens shall Tomorrowland’s sailors encounter in 2018? Vini Vici (Aviram Saharai and Matan Kadosh from Israel), Kölsch from Denmark, and Axwell from Stockholm are three names to keep your ears open for. Other sirens include: Armin van Buuren; Hardwell; Fatboy Slim; Charlotte de Witte; Nina Kraviz; Steve Aoki; NGHTMRE; Ace Ventura; Paul Oakenfold; and Tiësto.
The only way to purchase a ticket is to first register for the ticket sale; alas, registration ended in early February. And tickets are sold out. Thus, be sure to mark a reminder in December 2018 so you can register in January 2019 for a shot at a ticket to this unique extravaganza.
