Tomorrowland tickets go on sale to Belgian buyers as festivals confirm summer line-ups
Tickets for dance music festival Tomorrowland go on sale on Saturday morning to Belgian customers. The festival, held each summer in Boom, Antwerp province, reserves half of its tickets for locals.
A total of 200,000 tickets will go on sale at11.00 for the two festival weekends of 19-21 and 26-28 July. Potential buyers have to register their interest in advance, although registration doesn’t guarantee a ticket, and they are expected to sell out quickly. Pre-sales for people outside Belgium begin at 17.00 on Saturday, with general worldwide sales starting on 3 February.
Last week, a handful of priority tickets were sold to people living close to the festival site. The Global Journey packages, which include transport and accommodation for overseas visitors, are already sold out. Tomorrowland regularly scores highly in lists of the world's best festivals.
The festival announced more than 100 names that will perform on its 16 stages this week. Regulars Armin van Buuren, Hardwell, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, David Guetta and Tiësto are back, as are the Swedish House Mafia and Belgian techno stars Amber Broos and Amelie Lens. The German collective Keinemusik will make their Tomorrowland debut.
Other major festivals have also been confirming their line-ups this week. Cactus Festival Bruges (12-14 July) has announced local acts Het Zesde Metaal, Compact Disk Dummies and Brihang. British trip-hop stars Massive Attack will play at Lokerse Feesten (2-11 August), and Architects, Mr. Bungle and Limp Bizkit are coming to Graspop (20-23 June).
