Tomorrowland has announced its plans for a virtual festival this summer.
It’s already confirmed that this year Tomorrowland’s flagship in-person event will return to the Belgium town of Boom in August and September, and the organisers have also revealed plans to run a separate online event.
In 2020 they were forced to run a virtual festival due to the pandemic, but that was so successful that they have decided to do it again, as its online stream was viewed by over 1 million people..
Michiel Beers is co-founder of Tomorrowland, and speaking with Billboard he said that organisers were “positive” about this year’s event, although it was a “very complex situation.” ‘Tomorrowland Around The World’ is the name of their online festival, and he also said plans were underway for the second instalment that’s currently scheduled for July 2021.
Last month, Tomorrowland announced details of its second winter festival, scheduled to take place in March 2022. It had to cancel its 2020 and 2021 winter editions due to the coronavirus pandemic. The winter edition will run between the 19th and 26th of March 2022 at the French ski resort Alpe d’Huez.
In February 2021, Tomorrowland shared details of a new vinyl box set, featuring a selection of tracks the organisers feel define 15 years of the festival’s history.
