The local government has not given the permit to organize Tomorrowland
Today, Tomorrowland released an official statement that disclosed what many had feared, the cancelation of Tomorrowland 2021. Tomorrowland’s official statement disclosed that the 16th edition of Tomorrowland Belgium will not take place this year despite organizers working around the clock. A few days ago, we reported that Tomorrowland had received some very unfortunate news, as Belgium’s local government (Boom & Rust), had decided that the 16th edition of Tomorrowland could no longer take place in 2021, which was scheduled to take place on August 27-29 and September 3-5.
Tomorrowland publicly commented that it would take the next few days following Boom & Rust’s decision to determine all possible avenues in order to obtain some clarity for the visitors and suppliers of the festival. Unfortunately, Boom & Rust have made their decision, and have disclosed to DJ Mag that,
“We are concerned about the health situation. We bear a great moral responsibility. We would find it difficult if there were victims due to a local corona outbreak. That is why we cannot approve this application now. The experts have been very clear to us, we can’t ignore that.”
