Tips:
1) On getting tickets:
Pre-register for tickets on the website in early January, and decide which ticket type/package you want. Once tickets go on sale, it’ll be on a first-come-first-serve basis and tickets are sold-out almost immediately (within 45-60min). To increase your chances of getting the tickets, try asking friends to purchase on different computers at the same time.

Avoid purchasing tickets on third-party websites as these sources tend not to be trustworthy. However, there have been good reviews about buying tickets on Viagogo though you should be prepared to pay higher prices.

2) On getting there:
There are “global journey” packages available which include plane tickets to Brussels, accommodation at DreamVille or at a nearby hotel, admission to an entire weekend at Tomorrowland, and if needed, transportation to the festival. To get cheaper flights, book your plane tickets early, say in January, before festival tickets go on sale.

Most travelers arrive at Brussels Airport and reach the site by public transit or car. There are buses and trains that go directly to Boom, and bus fares are reasonably priced and the journey takes around 30min.

3) On accommodation:
There are camp packages whereby tents are set up for you to stay in DreamVille. It is recommended to stay in DreamVille as there are many exciting activities around the festival area before and during the actual performances. Otherwise, you may opt to stay in a nearby hotel in Brussels, Mechelen, or Antwerp.

First, you can do the “global journey” package which includes plane tickets to Brussels, Dreamville or a nearby hotel, access to three days of Tomorrowland, and if needed, transportation to the festival. We buy plane tickets in January- before tickets go on sale, in order to get a cheaper flight. Once in Belgium transportation is pretty easy. There are buses and trains that go directly to Boom. It’s usually pretty cheap to take the bus and takes about 30 minutes to get to the town of Boom. – See more at: http://www.heleneinbetween.com/2013/12/how-to-get-to-tomorrowland-2014.html#sthash.KkXwxcVH.dpuf
