It’s official: TomorrowWorld 2016 is no more.

Tomorrowland spokeswoman Debbie Wilmsen said in early February that “in light of the present situation [SFX’s bankruptcy] no concrete plans have yet been made for 2016″, and now the festival has confirmed on its social media pages that it won’t return to Georgia’s Chattahoochee Hills for a fourth year.

The most recent festival (and, as it turns out, the last) ended with thousands of attendees left stranded overnight with no transportation or shelter after shuttle buses from the festival site, around 30 miles from Atlanta, were cancelled after heavy rain.

TomorrowWorld/ID&T’s corporate parent, SFX Entertainment, filed for bankruptcy on 1 February. It is currently seeking a buyer for digital music store/streaming service Beatport.
