Hi There,

I'm sure you all have heard about the amazing festival of Tomorrowland, in Boom, Belgium.

As I am from Belgium, I was there every year since the beginning in 2005 with my friends. But this year, I am the only one who got camping tickets (Dreamville), my friends only got a Full Madness Ticket, but no camping.

So I was wondering if there are some nice people who want to join me at the camping site.

Ben

Hi Ben,
Since you are from Belgium and have been going for 5 years, I was wondering if you know if there is an easy and cheap way to get to Brussels each night after the festival? I have a Full Madness Pass but there is no accommodation left in Antwerp or Mechelen so it looks like Brussels is my only option, but I can;t find out how to get back there after the festival each night? I missed out on a camping ticket as well :(

Hi there

I've always stayed at the camping site itself, so I have no experience getting to an hotel in Brussels. I think the cheapest option would be taking a taxi. I don't think the trains and busses will ride on a regular basis AFTER 1am (By which I mean after the festival).

Maybe you should check these sites:

http://www.deboeck-incoming.com/Default.aspx?PageID=199&Culture=en (an hotel and official partner of tomorrowland, you can have a 'travel package' only if you want)

http://www.b-rail.be/main/E/ (The main site of the belgian train service)

Hope this helps :)

But as i said before, I think it would be easier to take a cab afterwards. You can easily book a cab in advance, and discuss a meeting point, away from all the crowd ;)

Thanks for that! I ended up finding some accommodation in Mechelen, so can get a bus home after the festival each night!

Hey Ben,
This will be my first time going to tomorrowland and was wondering how strict are the security checks? Thanks!

Well it depends. I've always entered the festival at the camping entrance, so I don't know how it will be at the main entrance.

If you go camping on dreamville, you might get searched, not always, but if you have large quantities of stuff, you probably will. Most of the time the security is looking for glass and other potentially dangerous objects.

At the entrance of the festival itself, I was searched every time I wanted to enter. So wallet, cell phone and other stuff out of your pockets etc...

But if you have nothing to hide, you don't need to be worried :)

I live in Westmalle, you can join me at Tomorrowland itself if you want to, leave a private message ;) (do you speak dutch?)

You will be missing a lot actually... The camping site is just sick. All those party people joining together, sociallizing and drinking beer, make some barbeque... and the camping preparty is pretty awesome as well.

Also Dreamville has its own radio station, own free laundry machines ... It's just an unforgettable experience =D This will be my 6th year at the camping site, and it has never failed me...

So if there is anyone else interested in joining me at Dreamville, just contact me ;)

Hi Ben,

It's my first time at Tomorrowland and I'm coming from South Africa, so really have no idea what to expect. Just have a few questions

I'm camping by myself cause my friend and her fiance got the easy tent package. Would just like to know if the pre party etc area you talking about the same for all campers? Like will they be able to come into the dreamville area?

I would like to hang out so you could show me the ropes? haha cause I'm completely clueless

And then, how cold does it get in the evening in Belgium? Just like to know how much I should pack
