Thanks, Weird Al, for the introductions and festivities, but Bonnaroo is no longer the only name in the Southeast synonymous with music, madness and the woods.
The three-day electronic dance festival known as TomorrowLand has made the journey across the North Atlantic Ocean—literally ... please refer to the accompanying YouTube video—to make its U.S. debut in Chattahoochee Hills, Ga., this September.
ID&T, Entertainment and Media Enterprise, the company behind the Belgian operation, announced the location and dates of the festival’s first international move yesterday in Miami.
Per the unmistakable theme of one of the largest dance festivals in the world, the press conference was fairy taled-out with costumed dancers and fireworks.
Though the ninth European installment of TomorrowLand is slated for July—tickets sold out in one second—the Georgia fall festival, appropriately dubbed TomorrowWorld, runs Sept. 27 to 29.
Attendees are welcome to camp in DreamVille for the weekend. This is no regular campsite: Think more fairy-dusted haven with a welcoming party, shops, food and “experiences.”
This year’s lineup for both festivals will be announced in April. Past acts have included Moby, David Guetta, Skrillex and Swedish House Mafia.
TomorrowLand 2012 drew 400 DJs and 180,000 festivalgoers from roughly 75 countries for the three-day rage-a-thon located in Boom outside of Antwerp, Belgium. The event has also been known to feature skiing and Europe’s largest Ferris wheel.
Tickets and passes for TomorrowWorld go on sale Saturday, April 27 at 11 a.m. EST.
