After two consecutive pandemic-related cancellations in 2020 and 2021, Tomorrowland made it clear that they wanted to make up for lost time by immediately requesting permission to extend to three weekends during the upcoming 2022 festival season.
The three festival weekends are expected to all take place in July, although Tomorrowland itself has not yet announced a date, the festival has stated that this is a one-year event and will not become a mainstay for the next few years. Spending a third festival weekend will also involve some compromises, mainly to ensure the safety of festival goers, but also to be respectful of Boom's residents.
Belgian regulators have since made a positive decision on the application, as Tomorrowland has now reportedly received approval from the province of Antwerp to move forward with its expansion plans.
"We are of course very happy with that," said Tomorrowland spokeswoman Debby Wilmsen. “We can now prepare three weekends. They will all fall in July. We will proceed as with two editions … with the necessary variations of the poster. "
