EDM fans, heads up!
The much-talked-about EDM music festival, Tomorrowland, may be reaching South East Asian shores soon! One of Thailand’s entertainment promoter, World Planet Entertainment, is currently in talks with the organisers of Tomorrowland to host the festival, but they are facing competition from Japan and China.
World Planet Entertainment is currently looking into a suitable location that can accommodate up to 450,000 party-goers, and the managing director, Chatri Tungthiankul, believes that there’s a higher chance of an expansion if an event space of such proportions can be found. He also said an event this vast a scale would need the involvement and cooperation from the government.
“We will also have to be ready to facilitate the journey for festival-goers from other countries, specifically at the immigration control, because when people travel to the festival in other countries – Belgium, Brazil and the US – their personalised festival bracelet does all the work, including that of a passport.”
The huge festival started in 2005, and has since been held yearly in Europe, most specifically in Belgium. In recent years, the festival has been expanded to the USA and Brazil. The latest edition will start on 22nd July in Belgium, featuring EDM geniuses such as DVBBS, Alesso, Deadmau5, Tiësto2, and more.
We really, really wish that the Thailand expansion would materialise, as it’s only a country away compared to Belgium, which is a whole continent away :( But seeing as they’re still looking for locations, we wouldn’t expect the festival to reach our side of the world any sooner than 2018.
Still, it’s better to remain hopeful, right?
