Tomorrowland release statement after Belgium Government announces re-opening plans

Tomorrowland announce statement

Important update, 18th June: It’s now unlikely that Tomorrowland will go ahead in 2021 after the Belgium government rejected a permit.


Whilst this is good news, mask-wearing and social distancing would still be required for large-scale events – which would obviously include Tomorrowland.

Attendees would either need to be fully vaccinated; provide a negative PCR test; or undergo an antigen test on-site at the festival.

As it stands now, Tomorrowland will take place on August 27-29 and September 3-5, with no lineup having yet been released.

At full capacity, the colossal, multi-genre electronic music festival would usually entertain 200,000 festival-goers across each weekend.

We should hear more on this developing story very soon.

Tomorrowland’s statement:

 ‘’We are delighted and grateful to hear that the Belgian Government has given a realistic perspective for large festivals in Belgium towards the end of the summer. This perspective is not only hopeful for Tomorrowland as an organization, but also for the more than 1500 suppliers and their staff.

We want to study the guidelines and parameters from the National Government in the next days so that we can properly communicate the different scenarios and implications.

With a combination of vaccination and rapid testing at the door, we believe we can make Tomorrowland a safe place, which so many people have been looking forward to for so long. We will take every measure and guideline very seriously and apply all the right protocols.’’
