For those of you who did not know, Tomorrowland 2012 took place in Belgium from 27 to 29 July. The line-up for the festival consisted of 400 DJs.
Skrillex, Avicii, Skazi, David Guetta, Nervo, Hardwell, Swedish House Mafia, Afrojack, Steve Aoki, Carl Cox, The Bloody Beetroots, Paul van Dyk, Martin Solveig, Chuckie, Fatboy Slim and Pendulum were all part of the line-up for Tomorrowland 2012 – pretty insane if you ask me. What’s even more insane is the fact that they DJed on 15 different stages.
If you were one of the folks bitching about Red Hot Chili Peppers and Linkin Park tickets a few weeks ago, this will blow your mind. 80,000 pre-sale Tomorrowland 2012 tickets were made available to Belgians on the 24th of March – they sold out in less than a day. On the 7th of April 100,000 tickets were made available worldwide – they sold out in 2 hours. In other words: this year’s festival had an attendance of 180,000 people (that’s 9 times the crowd at Oppikoppi in South Africa this year – in case you were wondering).
More than 35,000 people used the camping facilities (also referred to as “Dreamville”) this year. People from 72 countries attended the festival, making it one of the most international music festivals on Earth. Pretty damn impressive if you ask me.
This festival is definitely on my bucket list if you ask me. This photo featuring the crowd at the main stage at Tomorrowland 2012 has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 1st of September 2012.
