Tomorrowland is looking to return this year!
Following a quiet year for music festivals globally, one of the world's largest music events might be coming back this fall. As the Belgian government gradually eases restrictions and plans to re-open the country within the next couple of months, the coveted EDM festival Tomorrowland plans to open its doors once again.
In a statement published on 11 May, the festival team updated their fans that they are currently studying the new government measures to put together Tomorrowland 2021.

Their statement reads, "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."
"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."
Tomorrowland is slated to reveal more information and updates within the next couple of weeks.
