Deruyter, Technoboy, Eddie Halliwell, Jon O'Bir, Yoji Biomehanika and Coone.[3]
The second festival, on July 30, 2006, hosted Armin van Buuren, Axwell, Marco Bailey, Fred
Baker, David Guetta, Ruthless and DJ Zany. The DJ and producer Paul Oakenfoldwas also
announced on the poster, but canceled at the last moment, as he was on tour with Madonna at the
time. Emjay, the producer of 'Stimulate', the anthem of 2006, performed on mainstage with The Atari
Babies. The third year, the festival lasted two days for the first time in its history, taking place on July
28 and 29, 2007.
In 2008, the festival took place on July 26 and 27. For the first time, more than 100 DJs participated.
The number of visitors exceeded 50,000 for the first time.[citation needed]
For the fifth event, ID&T led to even more venues, one ski, and much more. Sun[who?] has included an
"I Love the 90's" stage, where musicians such as Push, Natural Born Deejays and SASH from the
dance scene were present. La Rocca performed live at the event for the first time. The special act on
the main stage was Moby. Tomorrowland 2009 took place on July 25 and 26 and attracted 90,000
people.

Main stage of Tomorrowland 2013

Tomorrowland sold out days before the event, with a record attendance of 120,000 visitors over two
days, in 2010 Dada Life, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Tara McDonald wrote the official anthem
"Tomorrow/Give Into The Night" performing the song twice on the main stage after Swedish House
Mafia. The track was made by Like Mike, Dada Life and Dimitri Vegas and the vocal melody and
lyrics were written and recorded by Tara McDonald. The song reached number 5 in the Belgian
commercial charts and is the biggest selling anthem for Tomorrowlands to date.
2011 marked the festival's expansion to three days. Only a few days after the official pre-sale of
tickets kicked off, Tomorrowland was completely sold out and had over 180,000 visitors. David
Guetta, Nervo, Swedish House Mafia, Avicii, Tisto, 2ManyDJ's, Carl Cox, Paul van
Dyk, Tensnake, Laidback Luke, Brodinski, De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig, and dozens of others
performed. It was voted the best festival of its kind in the world at the International Dance Music
Awards in 2012.[4]
Tomorrowland 2012 took place between from July 2729, 2012, at the De Schorre, a provincial
recreation area in Boom, Belgium. The line-up consisted of 400 DJs, such as Armin van Buuren,
Ferry Corsten, Skrillex, Avicii, Marco Bailey, Skazi, David Guetta, Nervo, Hardwell, Swedish House
Mafia, Afrojack, Steve Aoki, Carl Cox, The Bloody Beetroots, Paul van Dyk, Martin
Solveig, Chuckie, Fatboy Slim, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Pendulum playing on fifteen stages
each day. 185,000 people from over 75 countries around the world were in attendance, with 35,000
of them staying in Dreamville. Because of the enormous success of Tomorrowland and the fact that
it is a Belgian festival, ID&T decided to give Belgians an exclusive chance with a pre-sale (80,000 of
the 185,000 tickets) on March 24. In less than one day, all of the tickets sold out and at some
moments there were 2,000,000 people on the online waiting list. The worldwide sale started April 7.
Within 43 minutes, the other 100,000 tickets sold out. In addition to regular tickets, Tomorrowland

partnered with Brussels Airlines to provide exclusive travel packages from over 15 cities around the
world. Other highlights of the festival were theCloud Rider, the highest mobile Ferris wheel in
Europe,[5] and the fact that 25 airlines were organised to bring spectators to the festival from all over
the world.[6]
Tomorrowland 2013 took place on July 2628 and reached over 180,000 attendees at De Schorre in
Boom, Belgium. Full madness passes sold out in 35 minutes, and the remainder of tickets sold out in
a reported one second.[7] Tomorrowland also offered its Global Journey packages and Brussels
Airlines had 140 additional flights from 67 different cities around the world to get festival goers with
214 different nationalities to Boom, Belgium.[8]
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the festival, and to meet the high demand for tickets, the 2014
edition of Tomorrowland would be held over two weekends; 1820 July and 2527 July. The line-up
for both weekends would be more or less the same. In April 2014, MTV announced that it would
produce two hour-long MTV World Stage specials featuring performances from the festival (to be
aired in August 2014), and that it would produce a documentary surrounding the 10th anniversary of
Tomorrowland.[9] On April 16, composer Hans Zimmer and Tomorrowland announced that they
combined forces for the creation of a classical hymn that would premiere during the 10th anniversary
edition of Tomorrowland. Veteran DJ Dave Clark, who hosted the second largest stage, believes that
a more diverse lineup that covered a wider range of underground music was Tomorrowland 2014s
top selling point.[10] More than 400,000 people have attended Tomorrowland 2014.

In March 20, 2013, ID&T Belgium and SFX Entertainment announced that it would begin organizing
an American spin-off of Tomorrowland, known as TomorrowWorld.[11] The festival is held at the

Bouckaert Farm in Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia, located 48 kilometers (30 miles) southwest
of Atlanta.[12] The site was specifically chosen due to its resemblance to the Boom location in which
Tomorrowland is traditionally held.
The inaugural edition of TomorrowWorld, held 2729 September 2013, reused the "Book of Wisdom"
design used for the mainstage at Tomorrowland in 2012. The festival played host to over 140,000
attendees over the weekend. TomorrowWorld brought more than music, dancing and stunning
visuals to the area last year - it brought an economic boost. Officials reported TomorrowWorld 2013
brought $85.1 million into the Georgia economy, including $70 million directly to Atlanta. That $70
million matches the impact the city got from hosting the NCAA Final Four in 2013.
Nearly 140,000 attended the event, and their direct expenditures added $28.7 million into the local
economy in areas such as lodging, restaurants and sight-seeing, TomorrowWorld officials said.
The 2014 edition of TomorrowWorld was held on 26-27-28 September 2014. The theme was "The
Arising of Life," and used the volcano mainstage which debuted at Tomorrowland in 2013. The
festival hosted a pre-festival concert called "The Gathering" on Thursday 25 September 2014 for
attendees staying in Dreamville, the camp grounds of TomorrowWorld. Over 40,000 people camped
at Dreamville, selling out the basic camping option.
