Tomorrowland to replace the Opera Stage in 2017 edition
It appears that Tomorrowland will be replacing one of their biggest stages in this year’s edition. In the photo posted below, it can be seen that a new structure is being built on what was the old location for the iconic Opera Stage that was first seen in 2014. The stage that has housed some of the biggest names in dance music over the years will come to a mysterious end this summer unless the festival has decided to relocate it to another spot at the Belgian location. The massive festival now takes place over four days and two weekends from July 21st to July 30th so there is little doubt that major change is in store as they are going all out this time around.
Based on the picture, it seems that the structure will follow a sort of megastructure-type build that has been seen at festivals such as Ultra that have become a staple in the festival’s identity. The Opera House was previously one of the largest outdoor stages at the venue and featured an incredible backdrop with the ferris wheel placed directly behind the stages center. The theme for this year’s Tomorrowland is set to be Amicorum Spectaculum although we only have minimal details as seen from the trailer so it is unsure what the full plan will be. Our best guess is if it is a supposed megastructure, then it would be the “Trance Energy” stage listed on the website that features trance artists such as Gareth Emery and Markus Schulz.
