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.
4) At the festival itself:
Stay hydrated, wear comfortable footwear and put on your sunscreen. Food and drinks are available and very reasonably priced at the festival. There are lockers provided at a cost as well.
