Tomorrowland has been granted permission to host three weekends in 2022. According to a report, the province of Antwerp has officially granted the environmental permit for Tomorrowland’s one-time third weekend. Prior to the pandemic, Tomorrowland was held annually over two weekends in Boom, Belgium, with great success. The Tomorrowland Winter concept, a single-weekend destination event in Alpe d’Huez, was also introduced by festival organizers in recent years.
To compensate for six Tomorrowland weekends canceled in the last two years — four in Belgium and two in France — adding a third weekend in 2022 will undoubtedly help soften the financial blow. And, given that Tomorrowland is one of the world’s most popular music festivals, anticipation for its long-awaited return will be high.
Jan Dierckx, chairman of the Bosstraat-Hoek-De Schomme, confirmed the district council will honor the permit: “It goes without saying that we as a local government will honor the environmental permit issued and will furthermore ensure compliance with all promised flanking measures, so that this one-off special edition can take place with the greatest respect for our residents.”
Tomorrowland spokeswoman Debby Wilmsen said: “We can now start our preparations.”
“At the moment there are no names known, but we are working on that now. The festival stages will remain the same during the three weekends, but the line-up will change slightly per weekend depending on the availability of the artists. But whether you come on the first, second or third weekend, you will be able to enjoy a mix of established values and new talent.”
Tomorrowland will reopen on July 15-17, 2022, followed by previously scheduled weekends on July 22-24 and July 29-31, 2022.
