One of the world's biggest, baddest and craziest music festivals, Tomorrowland, is adopting futuristic practices for its 2020 edition set to take place this weekend on Saturday, 25 July and Sunday, 26 July 2020.
This year the event’s extravagant stage designs are planned to present a familiar yet entirely new experience–one that is shaping the future of music festivals in a socially-distanced world.
The festival is well known as a concert industry innovator by way of showcasing new technologies, immersive experiences and leading music acts at live events.
After deciding to cancel this year's physical festival, Tomorrowland set about making sure that hardcore EDM fans could reunite through an expansive digital festival that will feature more than 60 globally renowned artists across eight different virtual stages with spectacular special effects and astonishing 3D-technology.
The line-up of DJs includes the likes of Alan Walker, Andrew Rayel, Armin van Buuren, David Guetta, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Martin Garrix, Tiësto, Steve Aoki, and Timmy Trumpet, amongst a whole host of other talented individuals and groups who have dedicated their lives to uniting people from all over the world through the art of revelry. View the full line-up here.
Tickets for Tomorrowland Around The World has been on sale since June 18, with prices starting as low as €12.50 (SGD 19.52) for a single-day ticket. This year's two-day digital event is elevating the traditional music livestream format, which normally features DJs mixing in a studio or at home, to a new form of visual entertainment combining ultramodern video and entertainment technologies.

Tomorrowland co-founder Michiel Beers expects attendance to continue growing, considering a special discount that is being applied to tickets purchased for the digital event. And while the annual physical festival was typically open only to adults ages 18 and older, this year, the digital festival will welcome fans of all ages.
“We pride ourselves with uniting people from over 200 countries every year in Belgium but by going digital, we hope to attract even more people to experience Tomorrowland first hand without having to travel,” says Beers. “We certainly expect to see new audience segments, including families experiencing the festival together, a younger generation, and people who love gaming and animation.”
By presenting this year's edition on a brand new digital platform that invites ticketholders to enter through a virtual 3D map of Tomorrowland's actual festival grounds in Belgium, this music festival powerhouse is expected to break new ground and set itself at the forefront of innovation.
Whimsically themed “The Reflection of Love,” the event will cast the illusion of a fairytale setting featuring state of the art entertainment experiences including games, webinars, workshops and surprise interactions focused on fashion, food and lifestyle all at the click of a mouse.
