Electronic music fans fortunate enough to have experienced TomorrowWorld can delight in a new development. After being canceled indefinitely following the festival’s ill-fated 2015 edition, the festival will reportedly make a celebrated return at an as-yet-unspecified time.
According to Belgian news source De Tijd, the organizers of Boom, Belgium festival Tomorrowland have mended their relationship with LiveStyle, the company formerly known as SFX Entertainment. Tomorrowland spokesperson Debby Wilmsen said, “The relations between SFX and Tomorrowland were acidified, but now that new people are in control of the current LiveStyle, there is a new approach.”
Tomorrowland parent company ID&T organized the first edition of TomorrowWorld outside Atlanta, Georgia in 2013. In 2015, transportation breakdowns that endangered thousands of festival goers arguably became the most well-chronicled instance of SFX Entertainment’s mismanagement of its numerous electronic music brands, and easily the one to trigger the most fallout.
SFX declared chapter 11 bankruptcy in February of last year. An extensive corporate restructuring saw the multinational conglomerate rebrand itself as LiveStyle in December, with former AEG Presents CEO Randy Phillips replacing Robert F.X. Sillerman as chief officer, in addition to other leadership changes.
Wilmsen said that it was still uncertain whether TomorrowWorld would return in 2018 or further on down the road.
