Tomorrowland 2020 will take place in Boom, Belgium, from the 17th to the 19th July, and again from the 24th to the 26th July. The festival, which celebrated its 15th anniversary in 2019, has been in Boom since the first edition of Tomorrowland, with the townspeople becoming an integral part of the festival’s history. The event runs for two weekends, and in between the festivals, the people in Boom and the local area attend a special party at the Tomorrowland site.
