Tomorrowland extends contract until 2034
Fans are rejoicing as Tomorrowland extends its contract to remain at De Schorre in Boom, Belgium for more than a decade, until 2034. Having drawn more than 400,000 festival-goers across two weekends, each year over the last 2 years, the festival is remaining where it all began, some 14 years ago. The news comes shortly after the festival revealed its theme for next year’s 20th-anniversary edition – ‘The Reflection of Love’.
As Tomorrowland extends its contract, a number of benefits are set to be reaped, including additional tax incentives. In exchange for the long-term agreement, Boom will lower the tax on Tomorrowland 14%, from €3.50 to €3 per day per person. Furthermore, Boom’s finance alderman Kris Van Hoeck commented on the deal, explaining;
“It means less income, but structurally we still receive more than €1 million every year, or around €18 million euros until 2034.”
Tomorrowland has taken place in the De Schorre recreational venue since 2005, where 9,000 patrons turned out to see headliners David Guetta, Armin van Buuren, Push, Cor Fijneman, Yves Deruyter, Technoboy and Coone at the festival’s inaugural edition. In recent years, Tomorrowland has invested in the venue by creating attractions such as the One World Bridge and the Magical Troll Forest. The 2020 edition of the festival is set to take place between 17-19 and 24-26 July.
