Just as it looked as if ID&T’s Tomorrowland brand was, in the wake of parent company SFX Entertainment’s high-profile bankruptcy, preparing itself for a period of gentle decline – American spin-off TomorrowWorld was cancelled in March, and there’s been radio silence from SFX on the rumoured Tomorrowland Madrid – the Belgian dance music colossus has announced it will bring the festival to five new countries in 2016 – live-streamed via satellite link.

Under the name Tomorrowland Unite – first used for two events, at the Palacio de los Deportes in Mexico City and the National Sport Club of India in Mumbai (Bombay), in 2015 – Tomorrowland will, in partnership with local promoters, stream the festival from Boom, Belgium, to audiences in Mexico, India, Japan, Colombia, Germany, South Africa and Israel.

Full details and pre-registration open at 16.00 CET (15.00 GMT) today.

A trailer for Unite 2016 can be viewed below:

DJs performing at Tomorrowland 2016 include Deadmau5, Eric Prydz, Armin van Buuren, Alesso, Axwell Λ Ingrosso, Martin Garrix and Eric Prydz.

Tomorrowland Brasil in Itu, Sao Paolo – which, following the axing of TomorrowWorld for 2016, is the sole remaining sister festival to Tomorrowland Boom – wrapped up on Saturday 23 April.
