Tomorrowland organizers have confirmed that the Belgian Electronic Dance festival, won’t go ahead according to plan, following their failure to secure a permit.
The Electronic Dance event was set to take place in Boom, Flanders, Belgium, from August 27-29, and September 3-5. Speaking on the cancellation of the event, organizers said:
In spite of the detailed plans we have presented, the studies conducted by us and the massive support and recommendations we have received, we have no other option but to postpone the sixteenth edition of Tomorrowland until next year.
Tomorrowland revealed that they were forced to cancel the event that was meant to hold in Boom, Belgium. The event organizers explained that the cancelation comes despite local government officials publishing a decree which will allow events with up to 75,000 visitors a day to take place starting on August 13. The event’s cancellation comes after similar dance festivals such as EDC Las Vegas and Ultra Music Festival Miami moved out of their original slots, with EDC moving to October and Ultra to March in 2022.
