Tomorrowland announced today that the festival is now officially moved to August 27th, 28th, 29th for Weekend 1 & September 3rd, 4th and 5th for Weekend 2.
As predicted a few days ago, Tomorrowland has officially announced the postponement of the 2021 edition in order to maintain the festival this year and the announcement was made by a press release on the festival’s website and networks :
” Dear People of Tomorrow,
Our regular festival weekends, at the end of July, will probably arrive too soon this year because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We hope that the situation will improve by the end of the summer. Therefore, for 2021 only, Tomorrowland will move to August 27, 28 and 29 (Festival Weekend 1) and September 3, 4 and 5 (Festival Weekend 2).
We want to stay positive and hopeful towards an unforgettable end of summer of 2021, but realize that there is also a chance the 16th edition of Tomorrowland could take place in 2022.
Tomorrowland is grateful to be working so closely and positively with the local & national governments and experts. Any decision and guidelines about outdoor events that will be taken in the upcoming months, will be followed.
We expect to come back to you in May with a detailed update. For now we will keep working hard to realize the most beautiful & safest festival.
Together with the People of Tomorrow, we believe in better times. We will unite again. “
The Flemish government had accepted a report as well as a massive support plan of 60M€ while in 2019, it was estimated that the festival represented 202M€ euros in economic benefits for Belgium.
