South Africa to get a taste of Tomorrowland

2016-05-03 11:00

Cape Town - On Saturday 23 July South Africa will, for the first time ever, be able to experience the magic of Tomorrowland when Tomorrowland UNITE, the mirror to Tomorrowland, comes to Nasrec Expo Centre, Johannesburg.

Proudly brought to you by Massive Management, prepare to experience the magic of Tomorrowland, with the same world-class theatrical production that has made the festival famous, and with a live screening of the headlining acts. Information on the full line-up (local and international) and tickets will be announced on Monday 16 May.

With a healthy dose of Tomorrowland magic, this indoor event will be a chance to experience the festival first-hand, from the other side of the world, along with local DJ talent and plenty of showmanship and fireworks.

On Saturday 23 July, a live video connection will be made from Boom in Belgium to seven other countries, including South Africa and… back again. On four different continents, tens of thousands of guests will be able to experience "UNITE" as one.

Under the title UNITE, the mirror to Tomorrowland, seven amazing parties will be held in 7 different countries: South Africa, Mexico, Colombia, Germany, Israel, Japan and India which will be directly connected, literally, with the festival in Belgium. UNITE will be bringing Love, Unity, Madness and Magic to seven stadiums, tens of thousands of kilometres across the globe from Boom.

“It feels great to perform at Tomorrowland but the feeling that also ten thousands of people are also partying in 7 other countries is incredible. We think UNITE can definitely bring a part of Belgium to South Africa!” says the celebrated DJ duo Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike.

Now in its 12th year, Tomorrowland has called De Schorre, Belgium, its home, and recently extended itself to countries such as the USA and Brasil. All three of these festivals sell out at lightning speed meaning that a lot of People of Tomorrow get left out each time, but that is now a thing of the past.

UNITE, experiencing Tomorrowland from 10 000 km away, is Tomorrowland's way of making the world a little bit smaller, so that people can come together for one memorable musical weekend.
