Tomorrowland is a one-of-a-kind electronic dance music (EDM) festival. Tickets for it are exceptionally hard to come by and typically sell out within minutes of going on sale.
Over the final two weekends of July, 400,000 people gather in sunny Boom, a small Belgian town with a population of less than 18,000, to enjoy the music of everyone from Armin van Buuren and The Chainsmokers to David Guetta and Tiesto.
Satellite events have taken place in countries around the world, including Lebanon, Spain, South Korea, the United Arab Emirates and Malta.
The 2019 lineup includes Tiesto, Eric Prydz, Steve Aoki and The Chainsmokers.

Fun fact: In 2017, at a Tomorrowland spin-off event in Spain, 22,000 people had to be evacuated due to a fire. On social media, a concert-goer explained that the stage “just exploded.” (Festival organizers were more sanguine, calling it a “technical malfunction.”) Thankfully, it didn't lead to any deaths or serious injuries.
