Tomorrowland is a dance music festival held in a small Belgian town that attracts ravers in their thousands from all over their world united in their love for good music and their quest for an incredible time. The festival has grown year on year and you are incredibly lucky if you get your hands on tickets... they usually sell out in around an hour! My housemate Mary always claims that you don't get to choose if you go to Tomorrowland, the party Gods in fact pick you... quite a unique approach to festival tickets but I kind of love her ideology.
Each year a new set is designed and created and it truly takes your breath away even just seeing pictures. The themes are all kept fairly secretive before the reveal making it that much more exciting for revellers. This year marks the tenth year of this extraordinary festival so they are sure to pull out all the stops to satisfy the ever growing crowd, in fact for the first time this year the festival will spread over two weekends doubling the number of lucky party goers. Many of the line up have already been announced for the festival including Above and Beyond, Hardwell, Benny Benassi and Nicky Romero to name a few.
The host town Boom (appropriately named) boasts a small population of about 17,000, but each year in July it gets invaded by this monstrous festival and really becomes alive. If you're looking to head out early then you can enjoy the quaint bars and restaurants in town or even head to the capital Brussels which is just over an hour away for some tourist time.
I will be sure to blog all about my experiences, I am so excited to go already but at the same time sad at the thought of this massively hyped up weekend of my life to be over!
Have any of you ever visited? Any top tips on enjoying this festival to the max?
