Belgium has given the green light for festivals with a maximum 75,000 guests to go-ahead from the end of August.
This news comes as a great relief to Belgium based Tomorrowland which switched from its usual dates in July to run two events later in the year.
Tomorrowland’s first event runs between the 27th and 29th of August, and a week later, it runs a second-weekend event running September 3rd to 5th.
However, the mass event is only approved in compliance with certain rules. All participants must be vaccinated or present a negative PCR test before the start of the festival. All visitors who do not provide proof of a negative result must each day of the festival complete an antigen test on site.
A Tomorrowland spokesperson told Billboard: “We are very happy with this news, but we will wait for the terms and rules before communicating about the final organisation of the festival. We are in a very positive mood and we are looking forward to holding the festival [at the end of August].”
At the end of July or beginning of August, the first test events with 5,000 people are to take place in Belgium. If these events take place without incident, the chances are good that Tomorrowland and other larger events in the country will go ahead that are planning to run in 2021.
