With word beginning to get around that mass gatherings aren’t set to take place for quite some time due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Tomorrowland 2020 has been officially canceled.
Today Belgium’s National Security Council announced that all large scale events would be banned until August 31st with Tomorrowland breaking the news to the electronic dance community shortly after. The 16th edition of Tomorrowland is now set to take place in the summer of 2021 (July 16–18 and July 23–25).
