Tomorrowland 2021 may take place in August, spokesperson says
The second weekend of the festival could reportedly take place in September
Tomorrowland festival may take place in August this year.
After hosting a number of digital events in 2020 amid the coronavirus pandemic, Tomorrowland has revealed that this year's flagship festival could take place later in the summer.
According to Gazet Van Antwerpen, a Tomorrowland spokesperson has said that holding the festival at the end of August and the beginning of September is just one of the options which could enable the festival to go ahead. The news oulet said that editors had heard the information "from various good sources."
“A shift of the date is possible, a different interpretation of the festival is also possible, with more or fewer stages or acts” Tomorrowland spokesperson Debby Wilmsen said.
Back in October, Tomorrowland announced that the winter edition of the festival, which was due to take place later this month, would be unable to go ahead safely due to coronavirus.
Elsewhere, more festivals are announcing line-ups and dates as vaccination programs and rapid testing facilities are rolled out across the globe. In January, Tomorrowland favourite and trance legend, Armin van Buuren, announced A State of Trance (ASOT) festival 2021. The first show will take place on Saturday 3rd September, at ASOT's usual home of Jaarbeurs in Utrecht, before a second performance on the 4th September. Each show will take place under the same umbrella theme, Turn the World Into a Dancefloor, with Saturday's showcase paying tribute to twenty years of ASOT, and Sunday's event "looking forward" to ASOT's future.
After being forced to cancel last year's event due to coronavirus, Dimensions festival recently announced that they would be taking over The Garden in Tisno, Croatia for the first time later this year, running from the 13th - 17th August.
