We reported yesterday Tomorrowland “accidentally” teased an Indian expansion on the Facebook wall. It turns out that isn’t the entire truth, and the real story is a whole lot more grand.
Tomorrowland and the companies behind it, SFX and ID&T, are putting all of their focus on “the 11th edition of Tomorrowland in Belgium, the 3rd edition of TomorrowWorld in the USA and the second edition of Tomorrowland Brasil in 2016.” So there won’t be a Tomorrowland festival in India for the time being.
However, that doesn’t mean they don’t recognize the amount of fans they have there.
All three of the festivals sell out in no time and this means that a lot of People of Tomorrow have to get left out each time. That’s why, during the 11th edition of Tomorrowland, on Saturday 25th of July, there will be a satellite link set up from Boom (Belgium) to two other continents: Latin America and Asia.
“Under the title UNITE“, Tomorrowland will host live events in both Mexico City & Mumbai. Organizers will have the opportunity to curate a one-of-a-kind event where livestreaming meets the real world, including live local DJs and “plenty of showmanship and fireworks.”
On Saturday 25 July, a live video connection will be made from Boom to Mexico City and Mumbai and … back again. On two different continents, tens of thousands of guests will be able to experience “UNITE” as one.
At local time in Mumbai & Mexico City:
- 11:00 PM Doors & local djs
- 12:00 AM UNITE with Martin Garrix
- 01:00 AM UNITE with Armin van Buuren
- 02:15 AM UNITE with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike
