Back in early June, Tomorrow country 2021 looked promising as Belgium aimed to reopen by September, allowing up to 75,000 people for outdoor events, just on the threshold of the festival’s usual 70,000-per-day average. Unfortunately, a few weeks later, the government rejected the festival’s permit application, citing “risks to public health and safety”. More specific reasons cited include the lack of police forces and the concerns of the GEMS Advisory Group.
Now the festival has announced that unfortunately the event will not go as hoped.
“It is with a heavy heart that our organization must announce that the 16th edition of Tomorrowland Belgium cannot take place in 2021. The whole team fought to the end and did everything to write a new chapter of the story of Tomorrowland.
However, Tomorrowland’s magnificent Around The World virtual event is just around the corner, July 16-17, featuring dozens of stellar performers ready to bring the festival’s epic vibes to life in another world. Tickets are still available.
