Tomorrowland expressed the news that a long-term agreement has officially been made with the town of Boom. This means Tomorrowland will stick around for quite a while longer at it’s rightful home, De Schorre estate.
Tomorrowland has been organised in De Schorre since the first edition in 2005. That will remain so until 2034, reports the municipality of Boom, which included the commitment in its long-term plan. “After negotiations with Tomorrowland, they gave us the assurance to stay in De Schorre until 2034“, says Finance aldermen Kris Van Hoeck (CD&V). “There are however hijackers on the coast.“
The municipality reduces the tax on Tomorrowland-related events from 3.5 to 3 euros per day per person. “That means less income, but structurally we still receive more than 1 million euros every year, or around 18 million euros until 2034,” says Van Hoeck.
“The love between Tomorrowland and De Schorre is still great“, says spokeswoman Debby Wilmsen in De morgen . “Boom and De Schorre are part of the long-term vision that we have with the festival“, says Wilmsen. “We have made several investments in the recreational domain in recent years, such as the One World Bridge and the Magical Troll Forest . We therefore see De Schorre as an ideal home base.”
Weekend One will take place Friday, July 17th through Sunday, July 19th 2020. Weekend Two will follow it the next weekend, Friday, July 24th through Sunday, July 26th 2020.
