Next to Boom in Belgium is the location of Orientis rumst, a field that is usually set up in Dreamville, the festival’s campsite. Both Tomorrowland and Dreamville are great economic drivers in Belgium, but Wienerberger brickworks have started digging very deep wells in Rumst to extract clay, which is upsetting the location.
“Tomorrowland brings in a lot of money for Rumst, and the municipality is therefore looking for a solution,” says Mayor Jürgen Callaerts (N-VA).
Farmers who lease land there are also at risk. One farmer says he is losing about five hectares of land.
Mayor Callaerts is working to solve the problem and find a solution for all parties, “but it is a difficult search.”
All tickets purchased for Tomorrowland 2020 will be carried over to Tomorrowland 2021, but tickets for next year’s event are not yet available.
