Tomorrowland has signed a 66-year deal to remain at its current site in Boom’s De Schorre Park.
The festival, which saw 400,000 attendees this year year – and was voted the No.1 festival in the world in DJ Mags’ Top 100 Festivals poll 2023 – has taken place at the De Schorre Park, on the outskirts of Antwerp, Belgium, since 2005.
Under a recently signed contract, Tomorrowland is confirmed to continue at its current location until 2090. This long-term agreement aims to offer the festival the legal security it needs to make substantial investments in De Schorre, which will pay off in the years to come.
Since 2005, Tomorrowland has made lasting enhancements to De Schorre. These investments encompass projects like the Stairway to Unity, One World Bridge, Spark sculptures, and stage area upgrades introduced prior to 2023.
The festival has also made improvements that cover essential infrastructure such as cabling, water systems, and wheelchair-accessible pathways.
In a press release confirming the news, partners of the festival added: “The successful collaboration of the past twenty years will be continued. The partners are committed to sustainable water use and planting native greenery on site... Roads and squares were constructed and an extensive electricity, data and fibre optic network was installed.”
Just last week, Tomorrowland Winter announced the first acts on its 2024 line-up, taking place next spring. Names of the bill so far include Afrojack, Amber Broos, Andromedik, Armin van Buuren, B Jones, Lost Frequencies, MATTN, Netsky, Steve Aoki, and more.
Earlier this month, Tomorrowland also shared a selection of recorded sets from its recent Brazil edition on YouTube. You can watch the full selection of live sets here.
The festival also released a new documentary, We Are Tomorrow, in collaboration with Amazon Music, earlier this month. The 30-minute film, directed by Wim Bonte, explores the music and global community of the festival – you can watch it here.
Tomorrowland’s Belgium 2024 festival will take place across two weekends at De Schorre Park in Boom next summer, running from 19th to 28th July 2024. You can find out more about the event and secure tickets here.
