Tomorrowland 2014 - Belgium
The largest electronic music festival in the world, Tomorrowland 2014 is finally here to take its visitors and viewers on a wild carousal of unrestrained revelry and mirth. This euphoric festival happens annually in the town of Boom, Belgium. This year, however, the organizers (ID&T) have promised to take the whole experience up a notch to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Tomorrowland. Institutionalised in 2005, Tomorrowland is not just a music festival but an embodiment of all the elements that constitute the massive cultural phenomenon that is EDM. Enchanting hundreds of millions of electronic music admirers from all over, it is usually held over the weekend. However, with the kind of lunacy and excitement ? with about 360,000 tickets sold out in an hour?s time with only a section of the line-up announced ? the concert is going to span two weekends for the first time; from 18th to 20th July and 25th to 27th July ?14, the line-up for both being more or less the same. TomorrowWorld, an American take on Tomorrowland has also gained immense prominence.
