Where is TomorrowWorld?
Last night at the Mondrian South Beach, European electronic dance music promotions power ID&T answered that riddle, revealing that the inaugural American edition of Belgium's TomorrowLand will be held in Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia.
Timed for maximum exposure during during Winter Music Conference and Miami Music Week, the TomorrowWorld announcement was a confirmation of oft-reported rumors that the fest would be held on the outskirts of Atlanta.
Located about 120 miles from Atlanta, the TomorrowWorld festival grounds, according to ID&T (via InTheMix.com), "is the property of a Belgian who is ready to receive TomorrowWorld with open arms and unparalleled hospitality."
Expected to lure 150,000 EDM fans to rural Georgia betweeen September 27 and 29, 2013, TomorrowLand will resemble past three-day editions of Miami's Ultra Music Festival in terms of size and scope.
TomorrowWorld's lineup announcements are scheduled to start in early April, followed by a series of staggered roster reveals via Facebook. Meanwhile, tickets become available to U.S. fans on April 27. But the international EDM-ers will have to wait until May 4.
Ultra 2013's not even over. And already, it's almost time to book a trip to TomorrowWorld.
