With the 10th anniversary of the massive Belgian festival fast approaching, Tomorrowland officials have some big announcements in store including a two-weekend livestream and what looks to be confirmation of a brand new Tomorrowland in Brazil.
Rumors of ID&T and its new majority owner SFX expanding to Brazil on its multi-continent domination plan have been circulating since February, and new reports from Brazilian media outlets suggest that this is, in fact, true. Brazilian radio station Jovem Pan is sourced in this story from Brazilian entertainment site Omelete, confirming the company will bring Tomorrowland to the southern hemisphere for the first time in its 10-year history with an installment in Brazil in May of 2015. However, the original Jovem Pan post has since been removed. The translation of Omelete’s re-tread story reads like so:
Tomorrowland, the most famous music festival in the world, will have a Brazilian edition in May 2015. According to information from Jovem Pan, organizers signed a contract to hold the event in the country. The location has not yet been confirmed but will probably be the Park Maeda, Itu (SP).

The potential venue in question, Parque Maeda, is a large events space roughly 50 miles outside Brazil’s largest city, São Paulo. Check back soon for more info if and when an official confirmation is released.
In the meantime, ID&T announced that the 10th edition of Tomorrowland in Boom, Belgium will be broadcasted live here across both three-day weekends, starting July 18 from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. CEST (12-5 p.m. PDT). The action continues for three days over both weekends beginning at the same time and will be rebroadcast after each day is complete.
