Tomorrowland 2020

Tomorrowland 2020

Boom, Belgium

It's March, the summer festival season is just around the corner, and that can only mean one thing: in just over 3 months, the magical Tomorrowland gates will swing wide open for the 14th time.

As the time creeps every nearer, here's a look through everything we know so far about Tomorrowland 2018.

This year's dates

For only the third time ever, Tomorrowland will span two separate weekends this year: 20-22 July and 27-29 July 2018.

The 10th anniversary edition, in 2014, was the first to ramp things up to two weekends, but after a return to three days in 2015 and 2016, last year doubled up again – and it looks like this might be the way from now on.


Every year, there are a few different Tomorrowland Ticket Sales. These have all now sold out, but the dates were:

Global Journey Sale: Saturday 20 January, 16:00 GMT / 17:00 CET; Tomorrowland tickets and DreamVille Packages with transport and/or hotel accommodation.

Wait, what's Global Journey again?
Global Journey packages put a ticket together with a range of transport and accommodation options. Some include flights – the infamous 'party flights' with DJs, entertainment and a host of surprises to ensure that your Tomorrowland experience starts as soon as you board.

WorldWide Pre-Sale: Saturday 27 January, 16:00 GMT / 17:00 CET; First sale of Tomorrowland tickets and DreamVille Packages

WorldWide Ticket Sale: Saturday 3 February, 16:00 GMT / 17:00 CET; Second sale of Tomorrowland tickets and DreamVille Packages

**There will be a re-sale of Official Tomorrowland Travel Packages, only on, on Thursday 29 March at 14:00 CEST. There will be a limited number of packages available for both weekends.**


Pre-registration is now closed for Tomorrowland 2018.

Opened at 16:00 GMT / 17:00 CET on Tuesday 9 January.

As in previous years, fans had to pre-register in order to take part in each of the WorldWide Sales. But, brand new in 2018, you also had to pre-register in order to participate in the Global Journey Sale.

For WorldWide Pre-Sale: pre-registration ended at 19:00 GMT / 20:00 CET on Friday 26 January.

For WorldWide Ticket Sale: pre-registration ended at 19:00 GMT / 20:00 CET on Friday 2 February.

This year's theme

This year, the entire site will be decked out with the theme 'The Story of Planaxis', taking both weekends underwater. Nothing is known yet of what the 'story' will be.

Every edition since 2009 has had its very own theme:

2009: Masker (Mask)

2010: Zon (Sun)

2011: The Tree of Life

2012: The Book of Wisdom

2013: The Arising of Life

2014: The Key to Happiness

2015: The Secret Kingdom of Melodia

2016: The Elixir of Life

2017: Amicorum Spectaculum

This year's lineup

The 2018 lineup isn't complete yet, but a tonne of names have already been confirmed.

The first details to emerge were the stages and stage hosts, giving some pretty massive clues to artists that would appear:

Pretty much all of those early guesses have now been confirmed, as well as a load more names from right across the musical spectrum. Oh, and French Montana, too.

The biggest headliners so far include: Martin GarrixHardwellAlessoArmin van BuurenDimitri Vegas & Like MikeAxwell ^ IngrossoCharlotte de Witte, TiëstoSolomun, Steve AngelloLost FrequenciesCarl Cox, Oliver HeldensJamie JonesSven Väth, Adam Beyer, Ben KlockPaul van Dyk, Markus Schulz, Ferry Corsten,  Yellow ClawBen Nicky and Alison Wonderland.

Here's the full lineup so far, over on

But there's one name that's still noticeably absent.

David Guetta has appeared at every single edition of the festival, right from the festival's debut in 2005 – so it would take something pretty big to keep the veteran French DJ away this year. Surely it's just a matter of time until he's confirmed.
