The winter edition of Tomorrowland in the French Alps was one of the first music festivals to be cancelled as a result of COVID-19. Now the multi-territory festival brand has announced a digital edition – Tomorrowland Around The World – set to take place next month.

With the festival known for its spectacular visuals and stage designs, organisers say that they are attempting to translate this to the online version, spread across eight virtual stages. Exactly what this will entail, and the line-up for the event, are yet to be announced, but it promises “the world’s best artists in dance and electronic music – from all genres – and a large portion of the fireworks and laser shows characteristic of Tomorrowland”.

In a statement, the event’s co-founder Michiel Beers says: “Tomorrowland Around The World is the result of a gigantic team effort of hundreds of people who are working around the clock to create a never-before-seen interactive entertainment experience. Since we started this project and all ideas came together, we immediately felt an enormous energy and lots of positivity from everybody involved”.

“For us it’s about re-inventing the festival experience, but we truly believe that we can bring the spirit of Tomorrowland and entertainment at the highest level to people and homes around the globe”, he goes on. “We hope that hundreds of thousands of people will unite in a responsible way and that small Tomorrowland gatherings at people’s homes – from Canada to Australia, from Japan to Brazil and everywhere in between – will be organised. Especially during the weekend where normally Tomorrowland Belgium would take place, we really have the power to unite the world”.

The event will take place on 25-26 Jul. Tickets will go on sale at on 18 Jun. Watch a trailer for the event here:
