In unexpected news, Tomorrowland 2021 will not take place later this summer. The mayors of Boom and Rumst denied permits for the event to take place, worried about the influx of unvaccinated people while the Coronavirus still is prevalent in the area.
The cities mayors, Jeroen Baert and Jurgen Callaerts said of their permit denial in a joint statement:
We understand of course all the higher or economic interests at stake and especially the eagerness with which everyone wants a festival summer back, but the full responsibility to ensure public peace, safety and health rests with us as mayors,. In view of the current circumstances known to us, we cannot reconsider our decision and our position regarding the license applied for.”
Ticketholders will be contacted and refunded per the statement from the organizers.
We can only hope everyone does their part by getting a vaccine ASAP so we can return to the festivals we love!
