3 Day Dance Festival Tomorrowland Went Flawless
In the recreation area of Schorre Boom the eighth edition of Tomorrowland is to its final day. For the vast majority of the estimated 180,000 visitors, the three-day dance festival went flawless.
Tomorrowland was since the first day of the presale hopelessly sold out. According to the organization over two million people tried to gain a ticket.
Tomorrowland owes its success to his growing international stature. 35 percent of this year is foreign.
But despite the many visitors, the traffic flow to and from the Schorre in the past few days were remarkably smooth. “Only at the end of the day when nearly 20,000 people simultaneously want to leave, we noticed a little hindrance,” said Gwen Merckx chief of local police Rupel.
On the festival ground police and festival organizers handled a zero tolerance of drugs. This led during the first two festival days to the removal of 37 drug users. They had to give up their band could not go back inside.
In addition, there were seven dealers arrested. Police and security found mainly ecstasy, cocaine, cannabis and amphetamines.
Another persistent phenomenon is that of pickpockets. Especially at the long waiting row at the entrance and the main stage, a lot of people were robbed.
Tomorrowland had this year over 400 DJs on the bill. The festival ends tonight with headliners David Guetta and Steve Aoki. In recent days, Fatboy Slim, Avicii and Skrillex were the top names.
