Most people assume they've had a little too much sun when they start to take in this festival's storybook setting. Yet, Tomorrowland's trippy technicolour fantasies and immersive staging is what makes it one of the globe's biggest and best dance parties.
You'd better bring some comfy shoes. This world-renowned electronic music festival will have you up on your feet for the majority of time you're here. With world class DJs and top underground artists performing here year after year and over 15 stages to explore, we don't advise trying to see and do it all at once.
The festival's setting is unique from any other music festival in the world with stages transforming into castles, cobras and bookcases and evenings producing lasers, lights and fire across the grounds. Spaces and imaginative areas include the Church of Love guarded by the 'naughty nuns' where couples can supposedly enjoy 15 minutes before returning to the party.
Dreamville is the most popular camping ground although tickets need to be purchased separately. And as for tickets for the actual music festival, these are nearly as hard to get a hold of as Glastonbury's considering the Belgian's get first dibs on them. Having said that, the crowd is said to be made up of residents from over 85 countries.
So if you do manage to grab a golden ticket, remember to pinch yourself just to make sure it's all real before you start looking forward to one of the world's biggest music festivals.
