There’s a lot going on in the Tomorrowland universe.
As planning for 2022 in-person festivals continues, Tomorrowland Winter—to be held from March 19 – 26, 2022, in Alpe D’Huez, France—has named the first round of artists to take to the icy stage next year. Among them are Armin van Buuren, Afrojack, Yves V, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Martin Solveig, Kungs, Adriatique, Kölsch, Lost Frequencies, Ofenbach, Quintino, and Paul Kalkbrenner.
Amid the Tomorrowland Winter planning comes the news that the brand is also eyeing a third consecutive weekend of Tomorrowland 2022 programming. At present, July 22 – 24 and July 29 – 31 are the two consecutive weekends confirmed for the Boom, Belgium festival. However, Tomorrowland is currently seeking to temporarily expand the festival by hosting the event from July 15 – 17 as well, in a bid to recoupe approximately $30 million in existing and anticipated losses, according to Billboard.
“We really have to do this to cushion the financial hangover,” Tomorrowland spokesperson Debby Wilmsen told Het Laatste Nieuws. “Before COVID-19, there were no plans to start organizing three weekends.”
The request must be accepted by the Boom and Rumst municipalities and the Antwerp province. As officials ruminate on the decision, those hoping to attend Tomorrowland Winter can secure their tickets to the event here.
