Tomorrowland 2021 reschedules, moves to end of August
Speculation that Tomorrowland organizers would boot the festival’s 2021 iteration from its consecutive July 16 – 18 and July 23 – 25 weekends to the end of August didn’t have too much time to swirl. After a Tomorrowland spokesperson indicated to Gazet Van Antwerpen that rescheduling could be in the cards, on March 17, Tomorrowland personnel announced both via email and on the event’s website that the event would move to August 27 – 29 (weekend 1) and September 3 – 5 (weekend 2) “for 2021 only.”
In an email, Tomorrowland stated,
“Tomorrowland’s regular festival weekends, at the end of July, will probably arrive too soon this year because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Tomorrowland hopes that the situation will improve by the end of the summer.
The festival organization is grateful to be working so closely and positively with the local & national governments and experts. Any decision and guidelines about outdoor events that will be taken in the upcoming months, will be followed.
Tomorrowland expects to come back with a detailed update in May. For now, it will keep working hard to realize the most beautiful & safest festival.”
On Tomorrowland’s official website, organizers expounded on the announcement, writing, “We want to stay positive and hopeful towards an unforgettable end of summer of 2021, but realize that there is also a chance the 16th edition of Tomorrowland could take place in 2022.” No further details have been disseminated at the time of this posting.
