Tomorrowland teases New Year’s Eve digital venue, NAOZ
With its New Year’s Eve event just over a week away, Tomorrowland has shared a trailer offering the best look so far at its new digital event space, NAOZ. The virtual festival ground will host four different stages: Melodia, Atmosphere, Planaxis and Pulse, with each showcasing a different corner of electronic music.
Tomorrowland’s NYE event follows Tomorrowland Around The World, hosted in July, but unlike the digital island of Pāpiliōnem on which the prior festival was set, NAOZ has been positioned as a permanent digital venue able to be reused down the line. In order to sync up the festival schedule with global midnight countdowns, Tomorrowland will begin streaming at 8:00 p.m. in the local time of the streamer. Four different artists will be streaming when 2020 finally comes to a close: CamelPhat, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Brennan Hart (Hardstyle show), and Diplo, whose set ends exactly at midnight to make way for Boys Noize. Tickets begin at approximately $25 (€20) and are available on Tomorrowland’s website.
