TomorrowWorld 2016 Has Been Cancelled
Early last month SFX Entertainment, owner of DJ track shop Beatport and events companies React Presents and Made Event, filed for bankruptcy. Sitting in the region of $300 million in debt (!!), the future has looked bleak for what have now become household name events (for example Electric Zoo and Spring Awakening), and of course the number 1 online store to keep DJ crates stocked!
It is under this umbrella that the US version of the Belgian festival, TomorrowLand sits. Many have speculated over the last few weeks whether it would still be going ahead, however a post on TomorrowWorld’s official facebook page has confirmed our worst thoughts. In a statement they said:
It’s with a heavy heart that we inform you, TomorrowWorld will not take place in 2016. Unfortunately in the current environment, it is not possible to give you the best and unique experience you deserve.
We will miss seeing each other in September and experiencing the magic of TomorrowWorld as one. You, the People of Tomorrow, the foundation of TomorrowWorld, are our inspiration.
Let’s lock and cherish all the magnificent memories in our hearts, this is not farewell…
Pretty sad times for our cousins across the water, and for the world of festival goers alike.
