Tomorrowland spokesperson says TomorrowWorld’s future is uncertain
The dance industry is shifting beneath our feet. Today, on February 1, SFX officially filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy. While the initial announcement pointed to no disruptions in the corporations’ future events schedule — which includes behemoth festivals like Tomorrowland and Electric Zoo –sources are now saying otherwise.
As reported by Georgia Unfiltered, Debby Wilmsen, a spokesperson for Tomorrowland, has made indications that TomorrowWorld may not return this year. “In light of the present situation, no concrete plans have yet been made for TomorrowWorld 2016,” Wilmsen says.
Wilmsen goes on to describe the troubled relationship between Tomorrowland and SFX: “Since 2013 we have collaborated with SFX for the foreign editions of Tomorrowland held in the USA and Brazil. However, we have noticed that our vision and goals, including a long-term strategy, are different from those of the publicly listed company.”
Finally, Wilmsen provides assurance that Tomorrowland and Tomorrowland Brasil will remain unaffected: “The Chapter 11 procedure will have no consequences for Tomorrowland in Boom,” she says. “The festival in Belgium is created, organized and managed for 100 % by the Belgian team. Tomorrowland Brazil will also take place as planned two months from now in Itu (Sao Paulo). Tomorrowland Brazil is being organized in close consultation with the Belgian team by a motivated Brazilian team that is able to work independently of SFX in North America for all aspects of the event.”
