The second edition of Tomorrowland Winter begins on Saturday at the Alpe d’Huez ski station in France, after two previous editions were cancelled due to the pandemic.
The event, which is the winter version of the Tomorrowland electronic music festival, is fully booked, with 18,000 people scheduled to attend, Belga News Agency reports. An extended version of the “classic” festival will be held over three weekends in Boom, Antwerp, in Summer.
On 14 March, the French government lifted almost all the health measures put in place to curb the pandemic, allowing Tomorrowland Winter to go ahead at full capacity without facemasks and vaccination certificates. Some of the festival-goers will already have begun skiing to music on Saturday, but the main area of the festival will only be accessible from Tuesday 22 – Friday 25 March.

Over 100 artists are on the programme of the event, most of them DJs. On the lineup are Tomorrowland regulars – Belgian and international – such as Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Lost Frequencies, Netsky, Paul Kalkbrenner and Steve Aoki. The producer of Tropical House Klingande and former French football player Djibril Cissé, now a DJ, will also be performing.

The multiple Tomorrowland Winter stages will be located around the ski station and the village of Alpe d’Huez. The décor will be similar to that of the original Tomorrowland but in winter colours. One stage, Crystal Garden stage, will be created entirely from snow and ice.
