Tomorrowland has become THE premier festival in the world. Tomorrowland 2016 will be here before you know it, and in order to get tickets and get to the festival you might need some help. I've been to Tomorrowland in Belgium (from Texas) for 3 years, as well as attended Tomorrowworld in Atlanta. Tomorrowland is the ultimate music festival experience and one not to miss. Every year, I get questions about how to get to the festival, how to score tickets (since Tomorrowland tickets sell out in mere minutes!), and how to make the most of your time. Here is my comprehensive guide to get to Tomorrowland 2016!

Every year, people from all over the world scour the internet to learn about this
festival and it's kind of become my thing to answer their questions.
My post on “How Much Does Tomorrowland Cost” has been viewed over 70,000 times and ever year I like to give people a gateway to getting into the festival. Because the festival has expanded I'll be going over some details for the festival in Brazil and Atlanta, but the main festival is held in Boom, Belgium.

How do I get tickets?

First, you must pre-register. This is very important to ensure you get tickets. (I will update my site to give you dates on when pre-registration goes live!) The basic process is adding some of your contact information and email. When you purchase the tickets you must have this information for the people you are purchasing the tickets for as well. Tomorrowland requires that the name matches the person to the festival bracelet.

When is Tomorrowland Pre-Registration?

Pre-Registration for Tomorrowland 2016 starts Monday, January 11th at 16:00. You will pre-register RIGHT HERE.
Preregistration is open from January 11th, 2016- to February 6th, 2016.
The first ten people of each country who register will have the possibility to buy a maximum of 4 Tomorrowland tickets through a
dedicated link.  You do no need to register for Global Journey.

How can I make sure I get tickets to Tomorrowland?

Unfortunately, you can't! It's a first come, fist serve basis and they sell out almost almost immediately. Pre-registration DOES NOT guarantee tickets.

People ask me all the time, how can I get tickets? I highly recommend not using third party sites (or ebay) because you can be scammed. I met a girl last year that came all the way from Australia, paid almost $2,000 for a ticket and it was a scam. You can try to get them elsewhere but be cautious of scams!

*Tip- make sure you tell your credit/debit card company you are making an international purchase. You don't want to try and buy the tickets and then your purchase not go through!

How much are tickets to Tomorrowland?

Tickets last year were 195 Euro (about 265 US Dollars). There are 180,000 tickets and literally millions of people try to purchase the tickets. Check out this post on How Much Does Tomorrowland Cost.

Where do I stay at Tomorrowland?

Many people choose to camp on the grounds of the festival in tents. The area is called “Dreamville.” When you purchase Dreamville passes you are also purchasing tickets for the festival. This gives you access close to the festival plus there are always fun things happening in Dreamville. If you buy a comfort pass, they will set up a tent for you!

There are also hotels nearby in Brussels, Antwerp, and Mechelen to name a few. Since I get asked this a lot: I personally prefer to stay in a hotel, but people love to stay in Dreamville too.

How do I get to Tomorrowland?

There are a lot of options when it comes to getting to Tomorrowland. One of the best “experience” options, though this is much more expensive is Global Journey. The global journey package includes plane tickets to Brussels, Dreamville or a nearby hotel, access to three days of Tomorrowland, and if needed, transportation to the festival.

Typically, I buy plane tickets in January- before tickets go on sale, in order to get a cheaper flight. Once in Belgium transportation is pretty easy. There are buses and shuttles that go directly to Boom. It's usually pretty cheap to take the bus and takes about 30 minutes to get to the town of Boom. You can also take a taxi cab.

What is the food like at Tomorrowland?

Very good. It's reasonable priced and you can even purchase beer for 2 euro. My favorite is the cherry beer which some say tastes like cough syrup, but I enjoy it. You can also bring in a water bottle (just remove the cap).

Food and Drink at Tomorrowland

How much is Tomorrowland? 

It's not cheap. As I mentioned about almost $300 for the three day festival. Hotels range in price but expect to pay at least 50 Euro a night. Depending on where you are coming from plane tickets can be $2,000. You also have to consider food and drink and if you want to travel before or after the festival. I would save up at least a few thousand dollars.
I wrote a whole post with the complete breakdown of cost at Tomorrowland. This should answer all of your questions!

How do I purchase food?

You use Tomorrowland “tickets” or “coins” and you can purchase them at the festival. I advise to bring cash since the ATMs don't work very well and the credit card lines are the longest.


When will the line up be announced?

You can follow Tomorrowland on Facebook and Twitter to get updates on the line up. It's not announced all at once but we should know more in January. And I will be updating my blog of course!

What should I wear to Tomorrowland?

It generally is pretty hot during the day, so wear something lightweight. Many people dress up for the festival in costumes and neon. One thing's for sure: represent your country! Bring a flag or wear something to show where you're from! Here is the Ultimate Tomorrowland Packing List.

Are there any other festivals like Tomorrowland?

Yes, Tomorrowland is actually expanding and created TomorrowWorld as well as Tomorrowland Brazil.  The first took place in Atlanta, Georgia (you can check out my recap here) and it is a great experience if you can't make it to Tomorrowland.

What's it like to go to the festival?

You can read my past posts, but it's pretty incredible. It's an amazing experience where people all over the world come together to share a common love of music. More people from more countries are represented at Tomorrowland than at the Olympics! With hands down the best music, fireworks, lazers, and stage setup. Tomorrowland makes it easy to get around and explore the festival grounds. Make sure you check out all the stages.


Why should I go to Tomorrowland?

Well, because it's the happiest place on earth. At least for me it is. People all over the world come together to celebrate music and life. It's not only about the music but about the experience.

I know this post was insanely long, but I'm trying to answer as many questions as possible! Check out the Tomorrowland website for access and information.

Hope we can all enjoy the madness together in 2016! Yesterday is history, today is a gift, tomorrow is a mystery!
