Rules of the Festival

There are some things you probably should know before attending the festival. First, you must respect art items, as large sums of money are invested in festive decorations, and whoever behaves badly is said to be kicked out immediately. Moreover, it's a drug-free event, and at the entrance, you'll be kindly asked to leave all your "medicine" out of the festival. At the same time, the festival allows and even encourages certain liberties—they've called it the "Church of Love." The attributes of that "church" are beds, condoms, and clean tissues. Probably, there's no need for further explanations. Laser shows are stunning, no doubt, yet be careful, as one edition ended up with some attendees suffering eye bleeding due to intense lasers.


DreamVille serves as Tomorrowland's official festival camping ground, creating a vibrant city that welcomes tens of thousands of festival visitors after an exhilarating day at the event. It's a bustling hub where the People of Tomorrow eat, sleep, and fully immerse themselves in their five-day experience, making unforgettable memories.

History of Tomorrowland

When a new festival is introduced to the public, one can try to predict its success or failure, yet you never know for sure how it will turn out in the long run. In the case of Tomorrowland, it was something nobody could anticipate. In the opening year 2005, tickets were given away for free to fill the space. The event was rated among Europe's leading electronic music festivals in a few years. The greatest sensation happened in 2013 when full tickets were sold in 35 minutes and the remainder of the tickets—in a single second.
