TomorrowWorld shuts out thousands of attendees, faces possible lawsuit
TomorrowWorld has announced that the third and final day of its gathering will be cancelled for many of those who had planned to attend; only allowing those camping in its DreamVille area access to the festival grounds. Inclement weather conditions from this weekend have caused festival organizers to close off entry to the grounds for those with single-day wristbands, leaving many attendees furious.
Festival-goers have taken to Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook to voice their anger and show off the poor conditions that many are currently stuck in, due to what appears to be a major lack in organization and planning on the festival’s part:
Soon to come: "I survived Tomorrowworld" t-shirts and "Tomorrowworld Survivor" bumper stickers free with your PTSD diagnosis. #tomorrowworld

Call the damn national guard if you have to! How do you not have multiple backup plans when you're hosting over 150,000 ppl. #TomorrowWorld

Many attendees shared similar stories being forced to sleep along the road and of having to walk over 5 miles in hopes of finding transportation out of the area, due to the festival shutting down its shuttle service. There have also been posts about a lack of food, water, and access to essential medications for those stranded outside of the festival grounds. Now, rumors are spreading of a likely lawsuit being brought up against TomorrowWorld’s organizers by one of the festival’s attendees, who happens to be a lawyer.
