Belgian dance music festival brand Tomorrowland has revealed plans for a new event during the “most magical season of the year”: winter.
Tomorrowland – whose flagship event in Boom is attended by some 400,000 people over two weekends in July – will take over the Alpe d’Huez ski resort in the French Alps for the aptly named Tomorrowland Winter, which promises which promises to serve up “the world’s best and hottest DJs [and] extra attention for tasty food and drinks served in the most unexpected places, all steeped in the decor, magic and atmosphere that makes Tomorrowland so special” for an estimated 30,000 guests on 13–15 March 2019.
“We truly feel that […] in Alpe d’Huez we’ve found just the right partner to realise our dream: a winter edition of our festival,” says Tomorrowland founder Michiel Beers.
“We couldn’t imagine a better way to celebrate our 15th anniversary”
“Tomorrowland Winter promises to be very special in all aspects: The stages set up throughout the ski area, including at an altitude of 3,300m, the brand-new main stage, the line-up – and all this in the fairytale setting of the French Alps.
“This edition of Tomorrowland was created by our own dedicated young team in Antwerp and we will be 100% in control of its execution. We couldn’t imagine a better way to celebrate our 15th anniversary with the People of Tomorrow and we just can’t wait to welcome them to this enchanting winter wonderland.”
Tickets for the festival, whose theme is ‘the hymn of the frozen lotus’, start at €685, including admission to the festival, four night’s accommodation and a four-day lift and ski pass.
