Incredible decorations and ten metre tulips tower over the world's biggest DJs playing to the world's best crowd. In the distance a ferris wheel turns slowly. Strange fauns lurk in the woods, Buddhas shake with bass, candy canes curve over bars, and superheros stand by swimming pools.
In the seven years since starting, Tomorrowland has expanded to one of the largest dance festivals in Europe, with over 180,000 making the trip to the land of wonder in Belgium. Fifteen stages cover all genres of dance music, including a frankly incredible mainstage set-up.
It's easy to see why Tomorrowland is the festival on everyone's lips, and why tickets sell out in minutes after going on sale exclusively on the Tomorrowland website.

Held by the aptly named town of Boom, Belgium, Tomorrowland takes over the 75 hectare De Schorre recreation area. The former clay pits are now lakes, and the Dreamville camping ground is surrounded by trees.
Tomorrowland go all out with decorations, tranforming a countryside recreation ground to a Alice-in Wonderland, mystery filled, 'world for the weekend'.
The crowd is truly international - last year saw over 70 countries represented. You'll see plenty of flags being waved by the mainstage too...
Dreamville is the offical camping ground of Tomorrowland - all sorts of accommodation options are available, from bring your own tent to hiring a cabin.
