The EDM bubble may have burst, but the worldwide festival market may still have legs for a while. Following in the footsteps of Electric Forest, the organizers of Boom, Belgium massive Tomorrowland have announced that the festival will once again take place over two weekends in 2017.
The electronic music gathering had originally celebrated its 10th anniversary by expanding to two weekends in 2014. Next year's installment of Tomorrowland will revisit that year's format, as it will take place from July 21st-23rd, and from July 28th-30th. According to Gazet Van Antwerpen, one of the festival's spokespeople commented:
“The purpose of [hosting the festival in 2 weekends] is to meet the huge demand for tickets from international and local fans. Meanwhile, with the blessing of the municipalities of Boom & Rumst, we can go ahead and start preparing for 2 weekends as of next summer.”
It's still quite a bit early for Tomorrowland's organizers to release any lineup details for the 2017 edition of the festival. In the meantime, however, you can take a look at the official aftermovie for this year's installment above.
