Music festival Tomorrowland holds virtual version of the event due to pandemic

Performed by: Tomorrowland

Country: Global

Tomorrowland, an electronic music festival that traditionally takes place in the Belgian city of Boom, announced a virtual version of the event, to be held on July 25 and 26, 2020.

Called Tomorrowland Around The World, the format was the way found by the brand to keep the festival alive even in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. So, instead of a physical place, the organisers of the event created a digital magical world for the festival, the island of Pāpiliōnem.

With 8 stages and more than 60 artists, including Katy Perry and big names in the electronic scene, such as Armin van Buuren, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Steve Aoki and Tiësto, as well as a selection of webinars, games and workshops, the online proposal of Tomorrowland is creating a new interactive entertainment experience.

Unlike most ‘lives’ held during confinement, Tomorrowland Around The World is a 100% paid event, with tickets ranging from 12.50 euros for a day to 50 euros (package with live broadcast of the two days of the event + the right to watch a replay of favorite performances until August 3rd).

According to the Tomorrowland organisation, more than 1 million people participated in the virtual edition of the festival.
