Looking to make up for lost time after not being able to take place since 2019, Tomorrowland has been approved to become a three-weekend festival in 2022!
Following cancellations in 2020 and 2021 due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the organizers of Tomorrowland submitted an application to the municipalities of Boom which would add a weekend to the festival making its highly anticipated set to return July 15 – 17, July 22 – 24 and July 29 – 31.
Jan Dierckx, chairman of the Bosstraat-Hoek-De Schomme, confirmed the district council will honor the permit: “It goes without saying that we as a local government will honor the environmental permit issued and will furthermore ensure compliance with all promised flanking measures, so that this one-off special edition can take place with the greatest respect for our residents.”
“We are of course very happy with this,” said Tomorrowland spokesperson Debby Wilmsen. “We can now get to work preparing three weekends. They will all fall in July. We will work in the same way as with two editions… with the necessary variations on the poster.”
Debby Wilmsen added, “We can now start our preparations. At the moment there are no names known, but we are working on that now. The festival stages will remain the same during the three weekends, but the line-up will change slightly per weekend depending on the availability of the artists. But whether you come on the first, second or third weekend, you will be able to enjoy a mix of established values and new talent.”
Once again returning home to Boom, Belgium, the three-weekend extension is expected to only apply to Tomorrowland 2022.
